Experience, Artistry, Results


For 33 years, Dr. Jeff Garner has been the #1 go-to dentist for cosmetic smile makeovers and full-mouth dental reconstruction serving Arkansas and surrounding states.    His national reputation for innovation, artistry and perfection of dental techniques is often shared among his peers in dental publications, such as Dentistry Today (the country’s top clinical magazine), who dubbed him “One of the nation’s leading clinicians.”

Being featured on television shows, such as Dateline NBC (where two extreme makeovers were featured) and Entertainment Tonight (where his Miss America pageant dentistry was featured) has brought Dr. Garner an international audience and patient base from around the globe. He is The Smile Doctor!

Dr. Jeff was born and raised in Missouri and attended Harding University, graduating with honors.  The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry granted his doctorate in Dental Surgery, and his Cosmetic Dental training was obtained from Baylor College of Dentistry.     He has been married for 34 years and has three grown children.    Besides his zeal for improving his patients’ lives through his dentistry, Dr. Garner is an impassioned collector of museum quality art and a gifted artist himself.


“Dr. Jeff Garner, ‘The Smile Doctor,’ is responsible for more complex restorative and cosmetic cases than any other doctor we have serviced in our 36 years of business.” – GDL (one of the nation’s top dental laboratories)

With over 50,000 cosmetic dental restorations placed and hundreds of happy and satisfied patients from Hawaii to Massachusetts and several foreign countries, few dentists in the world possess the experience and skill level of The Smile Doctor.


Dr. Garner considers his God-gifted, artistic ability essential for creating beautiful, life-like and natural dental results which are individualized for each patient.   Very few dentists have the expertise to create such personalized smiles.  For Dr. Jeff, each patient is his “canvas”.   No two people on earth are alike, so he creates individual smiles for each patient that bring out the best aesthetic qualities of the face, lips, gums, skin tones, balance, proportion and harmony.  All of the photos shown on this site are actual patients of Dr. Garner.


Dr. Garner’s blending of artistic ability and dental science yields unparalleled functional and aesthetic results.   From restoration of a single tooth to his amazing Extreme Smile Makeovers, his attention to detail and execution yields the best results attainable.   Listening to patient desires, being considerate of patients’ time, and providing detailed treatment planning for each individual before any work is begun are all essential for achieving unrivaled world-class dentistry.
