“Another great appointment with professionals. I have been a patient of Dr. Spillman’s for over ten years. Three years ago we moved out of the Dallas area about an hour and a half away. I have never even considered changing Dentists. Professionalism is a priority through the entire staff. Weather you have any kind of appreciation about a visit to a Dentist or not. You will find caring, skilled, professional dental care with Dental Center of Lakewood.”
“Unlike most dentists, they do not try to squeeze money out of you with unnecessary procedures. Crystal and Dr. Spillman are great and skilled at what they do. I've been a loyal customer since I first went about 5 years ago and continue even though I moved farther away. Highly recommend!!”
“I never thought I'd say a teeth cleaning was the highlight of my day, but they're honestly that good. They always see me on time and get me in and out which I love. Always pleasant and friendly staff - can't recommend enough.”

HAVE QUESTIONS? We’ve Got Answers!
Whether this is your first appointment with us, or you are interested in finding out more about a particular service, it’s natural to have questions. Fortunately, our team at Dental Center of Lakewood is here to help! If you’d like to do a bit more research before giving us a call, read on for the answers to a few of the most common questions we get from patients. However, if you’re ready to get started, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
Did you search “dentist near me” in Google and instantly become overwhelmed? You’re not alone. Luckily, you can make the process of finding the best dentist much less anxiety-inducing by focusing first on what is most important to you. For some, that might be a practice that accepts their dental insurance or goes above and beyond to deliver personalized attention. For others, it’s a dental team who offers sedation dentistry or specializes in dental implants. From there, you can read the reviews, doctors’ bios, and philosophy of care on their website, which will help you find a dentist who meets the criteria you’ve established. And what better place to get started by doing just that on our website? After all, Dr. Spillman and Dr. Green both have extensive experience providing patients with the world-class care they deserve to achieve their unique smile goals!
How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
If your dental injury results in a life-threatening condition, like a broken jaw or difficulty breathing, then call 911 immediately. Otherwise, your first action should be to call our practice. From there, our knowledgeable team can provide you with first-aid instructions (if needed), guide you through handling your dental emergency, and do our best to schedule an urgent appointment so Dr. Spillman and Dr. Green can provide you with the fast, effective relief you need.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
Although price should never be a factor in whether or not you receive quality dental care, we understand it often is. That is why your six-month checkups and cleanings are so important. Not only do they catch dental concerns in the early stages, help prevent dental emergencies, and remove caked-on plaque, but they are also often covered fully by your dental insurance provider. That is where Kelli, our insurance guru, comes in! She will file your claims for you to ensure you save as much as possible. Plus, we accept financing through CareCredit, which breaks down even the most extensive treatments into manageable monthly chunks.
What Level of Education Is Required to Be a Dentist?
To practice dentistry in the U.S., all dentists must earn their Doctor of Dental Medicine or Doctor of Dental Sciences from one of the 67 accredited dental schools. In addition, they are required to complete a certain number of continuing education hours to keep their license. To stay abreast of the latest techniques and technology, Dr. Spillman regularly completes his through the world-renowned Spear Study Group and the Seattle Study Club. As for Dr. Green, she is certified in sedation dentistry and keeps her clinical skills sharp through an active membership with the notable Seattle Study Club.
