David C. Spokane, DMD, MS
I really love practicing orthodontics. I have been creating beautiful, healthy smiles for over 20 years. The greatest enjoyment of practicing orthodontics is watching shy, backwards children with little self confidence because of their crooked or protruded teeth evolve into confident, outgoing young adults who are proud of “our smile”. We truly change people’s 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 Doctor of Dental Medicine in 1991. I then attended West Virginia University School of Dentistry for both my Master of Science degree and Certificate in Orthodontics. I am proud to be an Elite Invisalign Preferred Provider, which means our practice is in the top 2% of Invisalign providers in the world!
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, tinkering with my salt water aquarium and working out.
