Dr. Amanda Smith, DVM
After graduating from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010, I moved to Driftwood with my husband and two dogs. Bear, a yellow Labrador, loves food, frisbies, and his Chuck-it! Pinto, a Blue Lacey/Catahoola mix, is the newest addition to our family, and is doing his best to keep me on my toes!
My hobbies are gardening, cooking and crafting, although most of my free time is spent enjoying the company of my dogs and family!
While at work, I love performing dental procedures and enjoy learning new surgical techniques. I am excited to be the newest member of the Cornerstone Family and I look forward to getting to know you and your pet!
