Dr. Spangler's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Spangler "I am truly blessed to love my profession. Every day I help wonderful people make lasting, healthy changes in their lives. I love it when a proud parent or former patient shows me pictures, years after treatment, of graduation, the prom, and even wedding photos. It's rewarding to know that in some way, I have touched their lives. I love getting to know each of my patients and their families. It's truly a joy to watch a patient's personality blossom as he or she sees a new smile appear. Each patient's self-esteem grows, and with it their confidence. They begin to smile and laugh openly and comfortably, and not worry about their previously crooked teeth. Being an orthodontist is about working with and directly helping people make positive changes in their life. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession."

Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Spangler Dear Dr. Spangler & your amazing Smile Team, I cannot thank you enough! Thank you for taking the time to make my teeth perfect. Thank you for always being so sweet & nice when I come in. I always look forward to my appointments. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you!

We started with Dr. Barbara Spangler's Orthodontic practice in June, 2007. All 3 of my children have used Dr. Spangler's orthodontic services, two have completed their treatments and now have beautifully straight smiles to proudly display. My third child is about half way through treatment and we definitely see a huge improvement in her smile already and are excited to see her smile upon completion of her treatment. Since the start of our orthodontic relationship, I've experience nothing but professionalism, good communication, kindness, willingness to work with us and good value for our investments. We've had quite a few "emergencies" and "pokey wires" throughout our 8+ years with this practice. This office always returns calls promptly and goes above and beyond to see the patient as soon as possible, sometimes even after hours! Regular appointments are easy to schedule and Dr. Spangler is always there to speak to and update us on the treatment progress. Her staff is consistently polite and treats my children and myself with genuine respect and high-quality care. Dr. Spangler even makes orthodontics fun by enticing the patients with contest to participate in giving exciting, desirable prizes. While comparing practices to meet your specific needs, strongly consider fulfilling your orthodontic treatments with Dr. Barbara Spangler. She individualizes each patient's treatment to ensure it "fits" the patient to create a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.

Doctor Spangler is not only rude, she thinks much more of herself than she should. She regularly talks down to employees and patients, accuses patients of being late with payments when the proof of early payment is in front of her. I wouldn't let her touch my dogs teeth! She is a miserable...more
