Sarah J. Smith, DDS


Dr. Sarah Smith’s quality standards include the highest levels of clinical excellence. She’s also very caring and comforting and treats everyone like family. She honestly cares for each person’s well-being, and daily serves as a role model for how to be giving and caring to all.

If you ask her when her passion for dentistry began, she’ll say it was when she was 9 years old! Her first dental degree was awarded in the Dominican Republic. After moving to the U.S., she completed her doctorate at the University of Buffalo in 1996, and her residency at The Genesee Hospital in Rochester soon after. She has been practicing in the Rochester area ever since, and serving patients in her current office since 2000.

Dr. Smith is a member of the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Society and an active member of the Monroe County Dental Society. She is also a member of the Hispanic Business Association and is completely fluent in both English and Spanish languages.

She is married, has a son and daughter, and enjoys spending time with her family. She enjoys going to church and enjoying  some quality time with her family.

Meet Our Providers


Michelle Wansha

Registered Dental Hygenist

Here at Full Heart Dentistry, Michelle is proud to have found a place among professionals with both clinical expertise and caring compassion, providing thorough, gentle dental care and education for their patients. “When I’m able to see someone who was once apprehensive about dental care, relax in trust and feel good about their smile again—that’s why I do what I do.”

Coming from a family of nurses and caregivers, Michelle feels fortunate to be part of a team that embraces continuing education and treats everyone like family. Michelle has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 31 years. In 1987, Michelle graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from Monroe Community College, then later her Bachelors of Science Degree, Summa Cum Laude, from SUNY Brockport. She values continuing education—something that is especially important in the ever-changing dental field—and would one day like to complete her Masters.

Michelle lives in Irondequoit with her husband, two children, and their dog, Ripley. Her free time is devoted to friends and family, as well as reading and writing. She has taught Sunday School, lead a Girl Scout Troop, and loves working with children. Our young patients love coming for the fun, family experience—especially the awesome prize box that Michelle keeps fully stocked at all times! She is excited to introduce you and your family to Full Heart Dentistry as your new dental home.
