Jacob Spendlove, DDS
“I knew I wanted to be an orthodontist when I had braces as a teenager. I was always a little embarrassed by my teeth and hesitant to smile because of my twisted teeth. After completing my orthodontic treatment, my self-confidence increased and I loved to smile! It was then that I knew I wanted to be able to do the same thing for others.” — Dr. Spendlove
