Meet Dr. Tina Smith

Dr. Tina Maple Family Dental of Libertyville Libertyville, IL
Hello and welcome!  I am so proud to introduce you to Maple Family Dental of Libertyville.  I have been practicing dentistry for 25 years and genuinely enjoy my job!  I was blessed to work with my father and uncle for many years and continue their legacy serving the Arlington Heights community.  I more recently had the opportunity to meet Dr. Ernest Tolli and have been practicing in Libertyville since 2010.  I have lived in Libertyville since 1998 with my husband, Dr. Vince Arpino, and have thoroughly enjoyed raising our son, Vincent, here.  I am so lucky to have had three great mentors and to live and work in such a wonderful community.
I understand that many people find going to the dentist a stressful experience so I focus on giving 100% of my attention to making sure my patients feel at home and their experience is a pleasant one.

Education

My education in dentistry and 25 years of working experience has provided me with a strong foundation and knowledge in the field.

B.A. Degree, University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana
B.S. Degree in Dentistry, University of Illinois Chicago
D.D.S. Degree, University of Illinois Chicago

Continuing Education

I am always participating in continuing education courses throughout the year, not only because it is mandatory, but I truly enjoy it! It allows me to stay current with technologies and treatment options for the best possible results for our patients. The professional organizations I am involved with include:

  • Past President of Northwest Suburban Branch of Chicago Dental Society
  • Illinois State Dental Society
  • American Dental Association
  • Volunteer for Donated Dental Services for the handicapped and disabled

I am happy to brag that I have a great team! Our front desk staff, assistants, and hygienists are all top notch! Not only do we all work well together, but we genuinely like each other and have a good time while getting our work done. Every day is a good day!

On a personal note, I met my husband, Vince Arpino, in dental school. He is an orthodontist in Libertyville. We have one son, Vincent, who is in high school. We would love to have him follow in our dental footsteps, but we will see!
