In fact, Dr. Spoor is a respected educator in the field of aesthetic dentistry.
What types of technology do you use in your Seattle dental practice?

What is full mouth reconstructive dentistry?
Full mouth reconstructive dentistry involves rebuilding, replacing and enhancing your entire smile in a harmonious bite. Each case is based on the needs of the patient. Dr. Spoor may choose to use a combination of therapies such as crowns, dental implants, short-term orthodontics or dentures, just to name a few.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth. To find out if you are a candidate for implants, please call us to book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Spoor.
What is “The Wand?”
The Wand is an electronic local anesthesia delivery system. It provides the gentlest injection possible, allowing our patients to enjoy pain-free numbing during their treatment.
What types of sedation dentistry does Dr. Spoor offer?
We offer oral sedation – a method that utilizes a prescription sedative taken at the time of your treatment. Oral sedation is useful for longer procedures such as dental implants or full mouth reconstruction.
