Dr. Paddy, whose full name is Dr. A. Patrick Smithwick III, went through a whole lot of schooling to become a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, including stints at world-renowned universities and hospitals on the East Coast. When he finished his specialty training in pediatric dentistry, he kicked off his career in Atlanta, Georgia where he was the lead pediatric dentist and partner of a large group practice. Yet, due to his love of the great outdoors and winter sports, Denver, Colorado always called his name.

One day, Dr. Paddy decided he was going to make his dreams come true, so he set up shop in Englewood and opened Kids Mile High Pediatric Dentistry. KMH quickly became the most entertaining, innovative practice around. Seeing the kiddos light up as soon as they walk in the door and knowing he’s helping guide them on the path to a lifetime of oral health has brought Dr. Paddy so much joy. It was only natural he started wondering if there was a way to reach even more adorable smiles.

Then, Dr. Paddy reconnected with Dr. Roger Castro, a similarly caring, knowledgeable, tech-savvy pediatric dentist and a longtime friend! Dr. Castro and Dr. Paddy actually became buddies when they were dental school classmates. Then, after school, even though they attended different programs, they both did their residency in New York City. When they met up again, it was evident they’d make an amazing team and joined forces at Stapleton’s Children’s Dentistry so they could care for double the sets of pearly whites. Patients will continue to get the top-notch pediatric dental services and super fun times they’ve come to expect at Kids Mile High but now in two convenient locations. Dr. Paddy and Dr. Castro look forward to expanding the Cavity-Free Club and bonding with new and existing patients and their families.
