Montana is an awesome state. It really is. Much more laid back, easygoing. The people are nice, genuinely kind. Plus, it has all of the outdoor things. I'm an outdoors kind of guy. I love the hunting, the fishing, and just being in the outdoors. It's a peaceful, calm time for me. Montana offers all that. There's not a ton of people in Montana. No offense to y'all that live out on the East, but Billings, Montana is 110,000 people. It's the largest city in Montana. That's kind of nice when you start to compare to other cities and states.
It's a lot more congestion in other places, and this is a little more laid back, a little more family – I don't want to say family-oriented, but certainly less fast-paced. That kind of atmosphere bleeds over into other things that we do. Allows me to be a little bit less fast-paced in my practice, hence I spend more time with my patients. Things like that. In this location, this physical location, we've only been here about two months. We were down the street a ways for about 18 years. This recent move has been a very, very, very, very good move for us.
Legacy Smiles has been providing excellent quality service to our patients for nearly 30 years. Our Billings, MT office services the surrounding communities with compassion, skill, and expertise. We offer top-notch care to the entire family and aim to ensure that they are educated, comfortable, and happy with the care they receive.
Brand New Location
Dr. Michael Stuart and his team have recently relocated to a newly renovated facility in June 2015. The new location allowed us to add a state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner in addition to the digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras and dental lasers we are using, all so we can provide more complete care for our patients. We also offer semi-private operatories and other comfort amenities. We are proud to be able to continue to serve our community at this new location.
Our primary goal at Legacy Smiles is to care for our patients – especially families. We strive to provide a comfortable, convenient atmosphere that is perfect for children and older adults alike. We encourage the early education of your child on proper home health care, so we recommend their first visit to the dentist be around the age of 2. This visit is a great way to let them become familiar with the dentist. We make it fun, which is why we call their first time here a “Happy Visit”. In addition, we aim to keep all our patients’ best interest in mind and work hard to build relationships with them. We pride ourselves on providing top-notch care with a personal touch.
Complete, Quality Care
My ideal patient is the patient that is conscientious about their oral health. They come to me because they want the best. If they are looking for something that is cheap and quick fix and not going to last them, that's really not the type of patient I'm really looking for.
Now sometimes we make some compromises and try to work within a patient's budget. That's just the reality of the world, but when it comes to whatever we're doing we never cut corners. I'm looking for patients that basically appreciate that.
People ask their friends who's the best, and when they send them to us because they're looking for the best, that's very comforting. That's kind of nice.
At Legacy Smiles, we strive to care for our whole patient, not just their mouth. This includes taking an all encompassing approach and paying attention to the patient’s overall health as well as their general well-being inside and outside our office. We aim to build relationships with each of our patients and ensure their comfort while visiting our office. We utilize many different comfort amenities, the best technology, and a hardworking, caring staff to ensure that we are providing the highest level of care possible to our patients. While you are visiting our office, you are in good hands.

If your kids don’t like to go to the dentist, try Dr. Stuart. Our kids love him and his team. We just visited them yesterday for our 6 month checkup and cleaning, and Brianne was awesome! When I was a kid, the dental hygienist was a lumberjack – but not Brianne, she’s very professional and mindful of each of us. I have sensitive teeth and gums, and my visit with Dr. Stuart and his team was relaxing and easy. And the receptionist Lisa is so great, she always has a smile and positive attitude…so refreshing to have a dentist like Dr. Stuart. We have been going to Dr. Stuart for over 10 years, give him a try; you and your kids will notice the difference.
Our family found the way to Legacy Smiles in the midst of an ongoing yet undiagnosed dental crisis. Fortunately, Dr. Stuart aptly diagnosed the situation and promptly referred me to an oral surgeon to bring immediate relief. Since then, our family continues to be blessed by the genuine empathy and compassion Dr. Stuart has for his patients. He openly addresses any worries or fears we have, always in an informative and respectful manner. We encounter the same high standard of care with all of the staff at Legacy Smiles. Any treatment concerns or financial issues are courteously and promptly addressed and resolved. Dr. Stuart and Legacy Smiles provide the finest professional dental services with incomparable personal care!
Thank you, Dr. Stuart, for the senior discount on the dental work you have done for Vern and me. We’re also sending ‘kudos’ for you as well as your professional and competent staff – Lisa is a gem! It has been a pleasure interacting with all of you through the years. You and Cheryl are a good team… you’re ‘easy on the mouth’!
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service and experience I receive each time I come to your office. I appreciate the warm welcome, the time you spend explaining the procedures, and the personal touch you give. You always go the extra mile and have been a wonderful blessing to my family.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Stuart for approximately 10 years. First I established dental care, then I quickly realized my children were of age to begin dental care as well. Dr. Stuart and his team have always been amazing to work with. I have 3 children ages 14, 10, and 5. Not one of them is fearful or frightened to go to the dentist. In fact, my 10-year-old just realized this year that she is actually “getting a shot” when she comes in for dental maintenance. She got her first filling at age 4! We are treated professionally, and they are always accommodating to our scheduling needs. I have frequently recommended friends or family to Legacy Smiles and Dr. Stuart only to receive a personal thank you letter and gift as a thank you! Lisa is always on the ball with insurance claims and reminders. I just have to show up! Thank you Dr. Stuart and the team at Legacy Smiles! Your patient care and service has improved our dental health. We love you guys!
Looking for a dentist who will see you in a timely manner? How about listening to you about any fear, be they physical or financial, in a caring, friendly manner? Is taking time to explain a recommended dental procedure important? Don’t hesitate to call Dr. Michael Stuart at Legacy Smiles where you are a valued patient.
I love going to Legacy Smiles! All the staff are so friendly and make the experience a good one! I can’t wait for my next appointment!
I live in So. California and was once visiting Billings and needed to see a dentist. I tried out a few and finally settled on Dr. Stuart. He is simply the best! He extracted a lower wisdom tooth, and when the anesthetic wore off, there was no pain. Zero, zilch, nothing! He and his hygienist are also the only ones who know how to scale and plane my very sensitive mouth with no anesthetic and no pain. And all of them, including the office manager, are very pleasant and accommodating. I highly recommend them. And I, myself, scheduled my dental work for when I was going to be in Helena, MT, then drove 4 hours each way to see this very special dentist. Well worth your while to check him out.
