Meet Dr. Keith Long

"Dentistry is Fun!" 

Spoken like a true dental nerd!  The only thing that I like more than practicing dentistry is attending continuing education courses.  My team and I are consistently taking courses to learn the latest techniques.  I LOVE it!  It is my goal to bring warm southern hospitality to our advanced care here at Southern Smiles.  Implant dentistry and facial esthetics are my work passions, and I enjoy other things as well.  I am often asked, "What would you do for a living if not dentistry?".  What a great question!  Listed in order (of choice... not talent, HA!): 

  • Professional Golfer
  • Competition BBQ Chef
  • Air Taxi Pilot
  • Fish Taco Stand on a Beach...somewhere!

However, I am a dentist and because my lowest golfing handicap was 9.8, I remain committed to advanced dental care for my patients in a relaxing and caring environment.
