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.

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.
Dr. Reid is giving back to single parents in Leander. Parents often neglect their own dental wellbeing, always putting their children first.
