OUR FRIENDLY TEAM
meet our doctor
Dr. Brendan Smith is a Board Certified Orthodontist skilled in all variations of braces and Invisalign. He is passionate about providing patients the freedom to smile in a personalized environment (which is the reason he opened his own practice and named it Freedom Orthodontics.)
Dr. Smith began his schooling at Brigham Young University and received his degree in Zoology. Not to be confused with Zoo-keeping, although Dr. Smith and his wife love animals and keep a menagerie at home.
After completing Dental School cum laude at Virginia Commonwealth University. Dr. Smith gained further education and hands on experience at a General Practice Residency at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, HI. This hospital-based residency gave him training in treating medically compromised patients and more advanced training in all phases of dentistry. This additional training allows him to better coordinate with other dentists and specialists. It also cemented his desire to become an Orthodontist.
After the beautiful residency in Hawaii, he traveled across the ocean and land to his Orthodontic Residency at Columbia University in New York City, the respected Ivy League program with a history of training highly qualified dentists chaired by a former head of the American Board of Orthodontics. At Columbia he completed an additional 3 years of education, was co-president of the Orthodontic class and gained training in all areas of orthodontics including: Early interceptive, adolescent, adult and surgical orthodontic treatments. Upon graduation, Dr. Smith underwent testing to become Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. This voluntary accreditation was an important goal to show that he is able to be held to the highest standards of his profession.
Dr. Brendan Smith lived in Texas earlier in his life, and decided to return to the state where he felt at home. He practiced for 5 years in Midland, TX to gain great experience in patient management, then relocated to the Leander/Cedar Park to establish a permanent home. With family ties to Austin, Dr. Smith and his wife, Tamara, decided to relocate and make the Leander/Cedar Park area their permanent home with their lively pets.
Dr. Brendan’s dream was always of owning his own practice where he could provide the highest quality of care for his patients. He believes having your own practice allows you to manage patient care from start to finish without the corporate pressure to cut costs at the expense of the patient care. His father’s medical career taught Brendan to always put the patient’s welfare and needs first. This is a value that has always driven his treatment philosophy with every patient receiving the same detail and respect no matter the background or circumstances. Dr. Smith loves watching the effects that a beautiful smile has on his patients young and old. He feels a confident smile can change the direction of any life to a happier course by gaining self-esteem and allowing your personality shine. Ultimately “letting your smile to set you free.”
Our friendly and experienced team is here to help make your orthodontic experience the best it can possibly be.
Agnes, practice manager
I joined the team in Sept of 2019 and have loved it ever since. I am originally from the Chicago area but moved down to Texas back in 2012. Me and my husband Mike live in Cedar Park. We have 2 doggies, Violet and Ruger. My hobbies include bodybuilding, OCR races, and going out on the trails with my husband and dogs. I worked a Cosmetologist for a few years before going into the dental industry, so I guess you could say I’ve always been attracted to the beauty field. I have worked in Dental since 2012 and I’ve always had passion for the Orthodontic side of things especially. I love going the extra mile for our patients and their parents, I’m part of a great team and I’m excited to see where it takes us.
Tatiana, head clinic
I joined the Freedom Team in the fall of 2019. I have worked in dentistry since 1996. I treat every patient with compassion and I am always willing to lend a hand. I am mother of two teenage boys and I have loving husband, Jay. Jay and I love to go dancing, and we love to do family movie nights. My favorite hobby is thrift shopping and working out, and the best part of my day is seeing the smiling faces that come into the office each day.
Jessica, patient coordinator
I joined the team in April 2020. I am originally from Florida and moved to Texas in 2017 then moved to the Austin area with my husband and two dogs in 2018.
