We hope that you will learn a little about our practice and gain an understanding of how we help patients achieve their health goals through developing long-term relationships.

Each page of this site reflects a philosophy of practice that has been refined by Dr. Spangler over the years of his dental practice. His vast experience in treating everyone, especially patients with very challenging problems, is reflected in what you see on the following pages.

What we do for patients is perhaps best reflected in the mission and purpose statement of our practice:

“To make a difference in each person’s life that we touch.”

This Happens Every Day in Our Office

Sometimes it comes from restoring a beautiful smile, and sometimes it happens because we take time to listen. It can be a child having a great dental experience or an older adult having someone to talk to. We value the long-term relationships with our patients and listen to understand how we can help them. All of our team members are dedicated to the caring, personalized experience that makes our practice unique.  Visit our dentist in Bloomfield Hills, MI, for a personalized approach to dentistry.

What Our Patients Say

This Is About Your Health

This is where the relationship begins. Today we know that healthy gums and teeth are necessary for good health. So that we may help patients achieve this goal, we emphasize prevention of dental disease. Preventive care is a shared responsibility of our practice and the patient. After many years in practice, Dr. Spangler knows what will work to help you keep your teeth healthy and problem free. Our team will do everything to assist you to keep your teeth your entire lifetime.

Creating an Atmosphere of Gratitude

Every day, we are grateful for the patients that we see, the place that we practice and all of the other people who make our lives fulfilling and meaningful. It is a privilege to work with a wonderful staff, caring and skilled specialists, and laboratories and suppliers who all support our philosophy and values. We celebrate daily how fortunate we are to be with people who appreciate what we do.

Children — Our Most Precious Patients

Making a visit to the dentist a pleasant, non-threatening experience is one of our most fundamental beliefs. We achieve this through interacting with children, engaging them in what we do. Whether they are 3 or 13, this approach appreciates the child for who they are, with their unique questions and concerns. Our preventive approach for children has one goal: achieve a healthy, nice looking, functional decay free mouth. With the partnership of the parents, this is attainable for every child in our practice.


Giving Back to Our Community

After practicing over 25 years, and living more than 50 years in this community, Dr. Spangler, his family and staff have contributed significantly to the quality of life in Bloomfield Hills and Oakland County. With this history of caring comes a responsibility of giving back to the community through participation and leadership. We are dedicated to continuing to be a resource for health, education and quality of life for the community in which we live and practice.


I am proud to announce that a new dentist is joining our practice and continuing the philosophy of care that I have embraced for the past 40 years. Dr. Satinder Kaur will be joining me in our practice, beginning July 19, 2021, at our current location. I have chosen her as she is uniquely qualified, based on her knowledge, experience and enthusiastic personality, to meet your dental needs.

It was extremely important to me that I chose someone who was dedicated to the excellent, personalized care that we have given all of our patients. Dr. Kaur is a 2013 graduate of the New Jersey School of Medicine and Dentistry and completed an optional General Practice Residency in New Jersey following graduation. She has practiced in the Detroit area for the past several years and resides in Troy with her husband and two daughters.

Our very capable staff will be here to treat and assist you with all your dental needs and answer any questions you may have. Dr. Kaur and I will be working together while I complete planned treatment for the next 30 days. After that, I will be available to consult with Dr. Kaur regarding your individual treatment needs. All the appointments you currently have scheduled will remain with Dr. Kaur and the office staff is available to handle any emergencies, just as we do now. If you have insurance, there will be no change in how your insurance is handled. The necessary COVID-19 precautions will continue until such time as state or federal authorities change the guidelines.

It has been my privilege to treat all of you and your families for the past 40 years. I have enjoyed helping each of you and taking part in the conversations and experiences we have shared. The trust you have put in me is something that I will always cherish. I leave knowing that our goal of providing excellent dental care in a personalized and caring manner will continue with Dr. Kaur.
