Meet Dr. Dan Spencer


 

Dentistry allows me to care for people, heal their mouths, and fix their smiles, while also allowing me to be artistic and creative, and to problem solve. I enjoy seeing our hard work pay off and patients become healthier as a result. Seeing patients return every six months and finding out how their lives are progressing is fun. It’s great watching the kids grow up!

Our team is great about putting our patients at ease from the moment they walk into the office. From neck pillows and blankets to jokes, our staff keep a relaxed and calm environment where patient comfort and care is the top priority.

Education

I attended Western Washington University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in zoology. I went on to attend Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, where I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.

Continuing Education

I am dedicated to continuing my education to make sure that I am as up to date with the latest advances in dentistry as possible. I strive to keep abreast of new techniques, procedures, and materials as they become available. I am currently training to treat sleep apnea more effectively in my patients. I am a certified ClearCorrect™ dental provider and a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Washington State Dental Association, and Pierce County Dental Association.

Outside of the Practice

My wife, Dr. Anna Spencer, and I welcomed our first child, Mila, in April 2016. We are also the proud parents of two loving and crazy cocker spaniels, Daisy and Porter! I grew up in Sumner, and I am so proud to be serving the communities that have supported me throughout the years.

When I am away from the practice, I enjoy hiking and being outdoors, exercising and staying healthy, working in the yard, and especially snow skiing. I am a music lover and have played the guitar most of my life. In my free time, I volunteer with the Medical Teams International’s Mobile Dental clinics program.
