David C. Spokane, DMD, MS
I enjoy practicing orthodontics and having the opportunity to create beautiful smiles. The challenges of a really difficult case allow me the thrill of watching the excitement in patients’ faces when their braces come off. I love when the little kids hug me, bring me cookies, draw me cards, and send me emails. I truly feel like I’ve made a positive difference in their lives.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with my Bachelor of Science degree before continuing on to their School of Dental Medicine, earning my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1991. I attended West Virginia University School of Dentistry for both my Master of Science degree and Certificate in Orthodontics.
I take many continuing education courses throughout the year to be able to provide more effective treatment, less discomfort, and better service to my patients. I am constantly trying to improve my knowledge of orthodontics, treatment techniques and learning more efficient ways to run the office with the latest in technology.
In the Office
Our office is fun, energetic, and has lots of cool stuff to keep patients occupied. We run on time and really cater to each patient as an individual. We take our time to educate each patient on treatment, cooperation, and hygiene.
We provide a very friendly environment for our patients and make them feel at ease in the office. My team is well educated, well trained, and very committed to the practice and our patients. We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to handle any emergencies. My team thoroughly explains all procedures to patients and parents, and calls patients at home to ensure comfort and answer questions. They have fantastic patience with children that are nervous or need a little extra attention.
While practicing orthodontics is my life's work, I am dedicated to the relationship I have with my three daughters Alexa, Karissa and Julia. Our family activities include arts and crafts, movies, eating out and traveling. When I have free time I enjoy Corvette racing and working out.
