He completed a veterinary dentistry residency at the Dallas Dental Service Animal Clinic in 2000 and became Board Certified by the American Veterinary Dental College in 2001.

He currently is the owner of Tampa Bay Veterinary Dentistry, a veterinary dentistry referral practice in Largo, Florida at Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists and The Pet Dentist, Inc. a veterinary dentistry referral practice in Tampa, Florida.

Dr. Peak has published several articles relating to veterinary dentistry and believes strongly that the education of other veterinarians and the general public about dental disease in pets is the key to providing optimal oral health. He has lectured and performed wet-labs in many locations and veterinary practices across the country from California to Maine.

He is married to Erin and they have two sons, Matthew (9) and Fletcher (6). When not engaged in veterinary dentistry, he enjoys fly fishing and watching his boys play soccer, baseball, and flag football.

In 2011, he completed his residency training at the Center for Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Dr Smithson has lectured at local and national veterinary meetings and has had articles published in the Journal of Veterinary Dentistry. Dr Smithson is excited to return to the Tampa area to provide specialized care in dentistry and oral surgery. He enjoys all aspects of veterinary dentistry but he has a special interest in oral oncologic surgery and endodontic disease.

In his spare time, Dr Smithson enjoys fishing, canoeing, camping and any activity that allows him to be outside. Most of his time outside work is occupied by spending time with his wife, Heather, who is also a veterinarian and originally from Tampa, and their two young girls.
