Meet the Doctors

Vincent Spero DDS

A Distinctive Education Is the Foundation Of Quality Dentistry
“I have always believed that an extensive education is the building block for quality dentistry. My hands-on techniques enable me to blend my knowledge and utilize interpersonal skills to give my patients a very pleasurable dental experience. I continue to follow up on the latest techniques by successfully completing more than 50 hours of continuing education each year. ”

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS “Professional organizations are valuable resource pools. I enjoy the informational exchange by my colleagues and the chance to share my experiences for
the betterment of my career. It is a great learning opportunity and keeps me involved with the cutting edge of dentistry.”

When I am not attending seminars and practicing dentistry, I enjoy reading, physical fitness, softball and skiing. Dentistry gives me an opportunity to interact with people on a daily basis. This is what I enjoy the most. Also, it is very important to me to make every visit to the dental office a pleasant experience for my patients.
