Dr. Brent Spencer
Dr. Brent grew up in Bellevue and was first introduced to dentistry through his mother's practice where he spent many hours after school and during the summers. From early on, he enjoyed the artistic aspects of dentistry and to the delight of his mother and staff often made use of their lab as his art studio.
After studying Finance and Economics at Linfield College in Oregon, Dr. Brent was accepted to the Robert Mayock Research Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, which solidified his passion for healthcare. Following his time in Philadelphia, Dr. Spencer worked with high-risk pediatric patients as a research consultant with the University of Washington's Department of Epidemiology. He enjoyed medicine and research immensely, but was drawn back to dentistry because it offered the combination of two personal passions: patient care and artistry.
At the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Dr. Spencer excelled in the classroom and clinic. Building on his joy of working with children, he joined the Husky Smiles program to conduct free dental screenings for underserved families. This passion also led him to develop and lead a dental education program with a local children's museum that is still operating today. With his friendly demeanor and great attention to technical detail, Dr. Brent was chosen to instruct and mentor 1st and 2nd year students in their operative and prosthodontics courses.
In his free time, Dr. Brent enjoys mountaineering, cooking, and spending time with his wife and their Wheaten Terrier, Murray. Dr. Brent believes in working with patients to improve their overall health and quality of life through dentistry and oral medicine. He looks forward to developing an individual plan that best meets the needs and desires of every patient.
