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.

I had been having severe pain on the whole left side of my face due to an infected wisdom tooth. Went and saw one dentist and they basically gave me pain meds and sent me on my way. I found Dr. Spero number online for emergency situations and called him immediately. He scheduled me first thing next morning. I was literally in tears waking into his office and he completely made me feel like I was in a safe environment and assured me we were gonna solve my problem today. Within an hour, my tooth was out. NO PAIN!!!!! I could hardly find the words to thank him but I will definitely be returning and can say Dr. Spero is my official new full-time dentist. Thank you again to you and your team.
I called in during off hours in extreme pain, and Dr Spero was able to help me out! He and his staff are so professional and such a great help! I normally dread going to the dentist, but he made this visit so welcoming and inviting! I had to get two root canals and Dr Spero made the whole process a breeze! The office is clean and welcoming, I definitely found my dentist office for life!
I have been seen by both dentists there. They are both great and able to work with me. I have serious health issues and didn't want to to go just anywhere. April, who works there, is a sweetheart and pleasure work with. Highly recommend this place to family, friends, and cancer peeps.
