Dr. Smith arrived in Seattle in 1973 when he joined the faculty of the University of Washington School of Medicine. He ultimately rose to the position of Chief of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery) at Harborview Hospital, performing hundreds of procedures on patients with severe facial injuries and patients with head and neck cancer. Dr. Smith was extensively involved in the teaching of medical students and residents and developed a teaching module that has been used over the entire four-state WAMI (Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) medical school teaching program.

As a result of his substantial experience in reconstructive surgery for cancer patients and a budding interest in cosmetic surgery Dr. Smith left the program in 1978 to pursue additional training in a plastic surgery residency program at Yale University, returning in 1980 to begin his private practice. Dr. Smith maintains an affiliation with the University of Washington with an appointment as an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Plastic Surgery. His interest in teaching continues and he has written a number of scientific articles and presented numerous papers to various organizations earning the Best Short Paper award at the annual Washington Chapter of the American College Meeting for six years until the award was finally retired.

Dr. Smith has been active in numerous medical association activities over the years, serving on multiple committees including those of the King County Medical Society and the Washington State Medical Society, and was an alternate delegate to the American Medical Association. He has also been heavily involved in his specialty society activities and became the founding President of the Washington Society of Plastic Surgery and served in that position for five years. Dr. Smith also served as the representative from the Washington Chapter of the American College of Surgeons to the Washington State Medical Society for many years where he also represented the state's plastic surgeons. In similar fashion he has served as the representative from the regional Northwest Society of Plastic Surgeons to the national American Society of Plastic Surgeons, serving on committees for that organization in part as a contributor to the society's national In-service Training Examination module for plastic surgery residents and practitioners in practice.
