Dr. Vincent Spero, DDS
Dr. Spero loves being a dentist! He enjoys meeting new people every day and vows to make dentistry as pain-free and comfortable as possible. His patients all have unique needs – some want routine work, others seek cosmetic dentistry, while others come to him in serious pain. “When patients call me in pain, I will treat them as soon as possible – even on holidays and Sunday mornings.” As a dentist, work never stops, but Dr. Spero finds that work extremely rewarding. “When a patient walks out of my office, I want them to feel happy again, pain free, and ready to show off their smiles.”
Dr. Spero and Dr. Farrah Koutchek, own and operate three successful offices and are devoted to their patients. “Patient comfort is the top priority for me,” Dr. Spero explained. “I make sure everyone is treated with respect and fully understands what treatment is needed.” Dr. Spero has successfully completed full mouth restorations as well as dental implants. He practices conservative dentistry and utilizes advanced dental technologies.
Dr. Spero wasn’t always a dentist. He grew up poor in Queens, New York. His father owned a dump truck, and his mother was a stay-at-home housewife. His father died when he was just a year old, and he lost his mother when he was in his teens. Despite family tragedy, Dr. Spero always knew he wanted to make something out of himself and have a rewarding life helping other people. Before he was a dentist, he worked many jobs, and was once even a broker on Wall Street. He put himself through college, bartending in the evening to make ends meet. “I found my own way in life, my own way through dental school, and it has helped me become the person I am today. I want all my patients to feel safe and trusting of me – there’s nothing I enjoy more than helping a patient by giving them confidence and life-long smiles.”
Dr. Spero believes his education didn’t end with dental school; he continues to learn about the latest dental techniques and completes more than 50 hours of continuing education each year. He also enjoys being a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the California Dental Association.
When he isn’t busy practicing dentistry, Dr. Spero spends most of his time with his wife and two children. His hobbies include reading, physical fitness, softball, and skiing.
