If you meet your neighbor, who has no smile, give him one of yours.
As a young Dentist, with a wife, two toddlers and a baby on the way, Dr. Stephen Simpton launched his career as an eager professional in a high-end Austin cosmetic Dentistry practice. However, with only the chance to treat two or three patients each day, Dr. Simpton and his family decided they wanted more: a more personally fulfilling practice, more of a connection to the community.
When offered the opportunity to begin seeing children who genuinely needed the quality of care usually unavailable to them, Dr. Simpton found gratification daily in restoring the lives and health of his patients at The Smile Center. Treating children who were in pain, unable to eat solid foods and too embarrassed to even smile, brought a newfound sense of satisfaction to the Doctor. In 2005, Dr. Simpton with the assistance of his wife, Abby, became part owner and operators of the original Smile Center practice at Las Palmas in San Antonio.
One year later, the Simpton family became sole owner and operators of The Smile Center and their vision of providing state-of-the-art Dental care to the traditionally underserved members of their community became a reality. As they became increasingly committed to San Antonio neighborhoods, the Simptons opened their second Smile Center office on the Southside and began seeing their dream take roots.
As the Simptons saw a need for professional Dental care in other areas of San Antonio, The Smile Center expanded into the Eastside and Northside with two new offices in 2009. As the new decade dawned, so did a new chapter for The Smile Center with the addition of the Walzem Plaza and Marbach locations. However, with each new office and each new challenge, the Simptons have never forgotten that a family Dental practice is more than a business; it’s a promise to their neighbors and the unwavering dedication to keep “Making smiles easy” at The Smile Center!
