Dr. Spaulding’s Holistic, Patient-Centric Approach to Expert Dentistry

To help provide her patients with exceptional dental care, Dr. Spaulding strives to create a comfortable, nonjudgmental, and hopeful environment where her patients can transform. An essential part of her treatment process involves building a relationship with her clients and educating them about ways they can keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. In addition to treating their concerns, she takes patient care one step further by examining their diets, habits, stress levels, candy consumption, and oral hygiene routines to find the root of their dental problems to provide long-lasting solutions

What truly sets Dr. Spaulding apart is her passion for watching her patients transform. Throughout her dental career, she has seen patients come into her practice feeling uneasy, anxious, and embarrassed about the appearance of their smile. From the moment patients are welcomed into her office, she makes it her personal mission to provide results that will make her patients feel confident in their smiles.

An Interview with Dr. Spaulding

I wanted to be a part of a profession that would enable me to develop relationships with others. I find it especially rewarding to witness children and individuals reach their desired milestones in life, whether it is graduating from kindergarten or grad school, getting married, climbing Mount Everest, or having their work published. This is why I chose dentistry over medicine or other professions. I can provide quality care and also be a part of their lives.

I am an active observer. In my dental career, I have personally met many people who were uneasy, tense, and even embarrassed by their smiles. Individuals who receive smile makeovers are truly changed. They become more confident, happier, and they are so grateful.

I earned my dental degree as well as my master’s degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania. Then, I completed my externships at the University of Washington in Seattle, Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, and the Universität Witten/Herdecke in Germany. Furthermore, I completed my internship and residency at the New York Hospital Medical Center, which is a well-known affiliate of Weill Cornell Medical College. I am constantly furthering my education and expertise by attending educational seminars so that my team and I can stay current with the latest trends and best practices.

I would love to develop an environment where my team and clients are happy. I feel it is important to always be supportive of one another and to do our best to be present in the moment. It’s in these present moments that we can make the biggest impact on their dental health by modifying their lifestyle and improving their overall smile and health. I feel our clients have given us the gift of their time, and I would like to make the most of their visit.

Building relationships with my clients, being able to affect how a person feels about themself for the better, being able to help patients become more conscious of their oral health and attuned to natural ways they can improve their lifestyle.

During my lifetime in dentistry, I have expanded my love of relationships to include the love of watching people transform. I’ve had patients walk into my office and speak to me with half-closed mouths and hunched over at the edge of their seats. I find it the most rewarding when I see their demeanor change from self-conscious to confident. All I can think about in those moments is what an honor it is that they trust me with something as monumental as their smile.

At my boutique practice, we strive to exceed your expectations and provide you with customized treatment plans. We are staffed with a team of well-educated, experienced dental hygienists and dental assistants who work together to make every experience a positive one for our clients. We stay up to date on current dental practices and trends by attending regular web seminars and reinforcing education and awareness. We also offer personal touches for our clients, including hot towels, comfortable cushioned chairs, and private rooms.

Thoughtful, friendly, and professional.

I enjoy walks with my family, prioritizing my faith, and being of service to the community.
