Frustration at the limitations imposed within a communist-ruled country, she and her husband made the life-changing decision to leave all that they knew and loved behind in order to achieve a better quality of life. During a 1985 vacation to Yugoslavia, they sought and received political asylum. Dr. Smida has an intense interest in learning. Her continual involvement in holistic dental and medical courses as well as her associations with numerous biologic societies complements her passion for people.
