About Us

Hello & Welcome!

We’re delighted you’ve stopped by our website to learn more about our practice. At A Smile by Design, we’re excited to greet new smiles and reacquaint ourselves with familiar faces in our community. Our excitement stems from our passion for oral health and helping each patient achieve and maintain the healthiest, happiest smiles possible. We view our partnership with you as the foundation on which to build a strong defense against oral infection and pain; if you’re suffering from either, you’re not able to live your best life. We take pride in our ability to repair damage and—pardon the cheese—turn frowns upside down!

James C. Vogler, DDS, FAGD

Dr. Vogler graduated from SUNY Buffalo Dental School in 1990. He continued his training with a general residency at Millard Fillmore Hospital in Buffalo, NY and then a two-year geriatric dental fellowship that in a combined program through the University of Connecticut and SUNY Buffalo. Over the years since, Dr. Vogler has completed well over 1000 hours of continuing education and has earned a fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
