About

Relax: We Are Here For You

What sets us apart

Legacy Smiles has been providing excellent quality service to the population of Billings, MT, and the surrounding communities since 1988. We strive to stay up to date with the latest technology, provide a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, and build relationships with our patients. And we do it all just for you.

We are very quality oriented and pay great attention to details. We only see one patient at a time. Each patient is given their own reserved time and we spend that entire time with that one patient. In other words, we never go from person to person while providing a treatment to a patient. This allows us to give our undivided attention to our patients and provide them with the utmost high-quality dental care.
