The Staff at Smith Facial Plastics
We understand that a patient’s experience includes not only the medical treatment they receive, but also the environment and staff they interact with before, during, and after any appointments or procedures. The entire Smith Facial Plastics staff makes every effort to ensure all your interactions throughout the process are enjoyable ones. At Smith Facial Plastics, we will strive to:
- Provide you with a courteous, inviting, and professional environment when seeking our expertise and care.
- Make available to you and our community the most comprehensive services in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
- Educate you with regards to the most effective and state-of-the-art techniques to help you achieve your individual goals.
- Ensure your safety in treatment enhanced by our world class training.
- Minimize your recovery and downtime while optimizing your result.
- Establish an enduring doctor-patient relationship.
- Continue to participate in teaching at the local and national levels, for the benefit of you and our professional colleagues.
Our primary goal at Smith Facial Plastics is to provide you with exceptional treatment in a welcoming and caring environment. We invest in cutting-edge technology that offers superior results and fully minimizes any discomfort and disruption to your daily life. While we have focused extensively on reconstructive efforts for skin cancer and trauma patients, we also realize how powerfully cosmetic procedures can transform our paitents’ lives. We currently see patients in two locations: our Ohio State University office in New Dublin and Albany, OH.

Joyce “Joy” Beitzinger has been our Clinic Coordinator for three and a half years and a Registered Medical Assistant for 17. With a wealth of experience, Joy balances extensive administrative, clinical, clerical and marketing duties for our practice. Primarily, she guides our patients through their pre and post-operative periods and, like Dr. Smith, believes patient education is of utmost important within the clinic and the community at large. When asked what she likes best about working with Dr. Smith, Joy enthusiastically responded, “I enjoy everything! I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else; I am so very lucky to be able to work with such an amazing surgeon. Dr. Smith is also very funny and charming, which makes working even more enjoyable!”
In addition to her medical training, Joy is also a professionally trained musician who attended the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music (CCM). When Joy is not assisting Dr. Smith, she enjoys softball, baseball, and spending time with her friends and family including her two daughters, Erika and Rebecca, and her husband, Tony.
Patient Services Associate
Abby Matter has been our Patient Services Associate for two years now and is currently pursuing additional education to become a registered nurse. Like Joy, Abby’s role encompasses a wide range of administrative, clinical, and clerical duties including the coordination of medical insurance and benefit matters and preparation of well-equipped and sterile procedure rooms. Most importantly, Abby is entrusted with providing a professional and relaxed atmosphere that fosters confidence and respect between us and our patients. Abby truly appreciates “the incredible work Dr. Smith does on patients” and loves “seeing the overall results.”
When Abby, an avid runner, is not working or studying, she is training for her first fall marathon in November 2011.
