Dr. Spencer is constantly involved in continuing education. Whether it is through formal lectures, being involved in study clubs or in discussions with respected mentors and colleagues, there is always room for learning. Dr. Spencer believes that keeping up with current technologies and research concerning orthodontic treatment is the only way that he can assure his patients that they are getting the best care possible.
Dr. Spencer feels he belongs to a great profession. He loves what he does, but even more than that, he loves the opportunity it gives him to build relationships and serve others in a unique way. He believes that orthodontics gives him the ability to live out his convictions in a way that is fun and meaningful and at the end of the day, it is he who walks out of the office blessed by his patients, their families, and his staff, and he is truly grateful for that.
Dr. Spencer grew up in Paris, Texas, which is where he lives now with his wife, Maurine, and his daughters Avery, Landry, Mallory, Ellie, and Colbie.
