Our Mission

At #thesmiledoc, our mission is simple. We strive for excellence in dentistry, providing compassionate, transparent care while treating each and every patient like the unique person they are. We take the time to answer questions, and explain all available options so you can be confident that you are making an informed decision about your dental health. We don’t think that quality dental care provided with empathy is too much to ask for, and neither should you.

Meet #TheSmileDoc

Dr. Armando Reid is the son of two Panamanian immigrants who moved to the United States for a better life. After meeting in New York during their military service, his mother became a nurse, and his father a minister and entrepreneur. They primarily raised their family in Texas, though he spent some time in Panama sharpening his Spanish. After an extremely impersonal visit to the dentist when he was young, Dr. Reid became determined to become a dentist so he could provide the kind of personalized and empathetic care he desired. 

Dr. Reid received his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Prairie View A&M before graduating from Howard University College of Dentistry in 2009. He then took on a residency program at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, where he became chief resident and learned advanced dental techniques.

When he is not in the office, Dr. Reid loves spending time with his wife, Summer, and young daughter, Autumn, and his son, Austyn. He also enjoys creating and producing music, traveling, and being outdoors.

Meet Dr. Joceylin Duarte

Dr. Joceylin Duarte is a native Houstonian and the youngest of three siblings. Growing up, access to dental care was very limited for her and her family. Her parents had to make the decision to prioritize their children's health and put their own on hold for the next several years. This led to many dental health issues down the road, similar to what many families across the US deal with every year.

She became a dentist to be able to provide healthcare and dental education to patients and families of all backgrounds, and is excited to continue that journey by serving the Leander community.

She attended the University of Texas at Dallas for a Bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology. Before completing her doctorate degree at the UT Health School of Dentistry at Houston. She is a member of the Hispanic Dental Association and Texas Dental Association. During her free time, Joceylin enjoys gardening, hitting the gym, and exploring the Austin area.

Our Technology

We’re committed to keeping up with the latest advancements in dental technology, in order to provide you with the most accurate, efficient, and comfortable care possible. Our Vatech Green CT 2 is a multi-functional digital x-ray imaging system that is able to perform CBCT (cone-beam computed tomography) and 3D scans, as well as panoramic x-rays, all with low levels of radiation. This enhanced imaging technology allows us to accurately plan and place dental implants, complex root canals, evaluate airways, diagnose TMJ, vertical fractures, and so much more!

At #thesmiledoc, we also utilize our Primescan and Medit-i500 intraoral scanners to take digital impressions of your teeth and gums, doing away with the messy, goopy, and uncomfortable putty impressions of yesteryear. These quick digital scans can be used for any and all things made at the lab, including crowns, bridges, dentures, and clear aligners.

But our technology isn’t just for imaging. Dr. Reid is able to perform laser therapy for deep cleanings and oral surgery with our diode laser. Laser therapy is the best way to actually remove and kill bacteria beneath the surface of the gums. It also makes surgeries less invasive with incredible healing times, when compared to using the traditional scalpel.

Giving Back

Dr. Reid is giving back to single parents in Leander. Parents often neglect their own dental wellbeing, always putting their children first. Every season (4 times a year), a winner will be drawn from a local church, and that single parent will receive a complete smile makeover! If you know someone who may benefit from a brand new smile, contact your church or give us a call at (512) 240-7200 to find out more about how you can help change someone’s life!
