About Smile First Family Dental

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
-Calvin Coolidge

The story of Smile First Family Dental Studio begins with Dr. Ilie Pavel who grew up on a farm in rural village in Romania. Seizing an opportunity, he left communist Romania with almost nothing. Leaving his wife and son with the promise that he will work hard for them to have a better life. Now he stands at the pinnacle of his accomplished dental career with his wife and son working at his side. His contagious qualities of honesty, compassion, and dedication will forever be the foundation of Smile First, that is our promise.

Smile First Family Dental Studio was founded in 2006. It was designed exclusively by Dr. Ilie Pavel’s wife, Cristina, who is also the office manager. Along with the elegant, modern decor, Smile First is also equipped with with the latest technologies including but not limited to, digital x rays including full mouth panoramic x rays, wireless headphones and media controls for comfort during treatments, and CEREC which produces computer scanned and designed restorations which are milled in the office!
