Meet Your Dentist For Denver NC
Dr. Reid Spivey was born and raised in Calera, Alabama, a small town just south of Birmingham. His parents, both retired schoolteachers, still reside just south of his hometown, and his younger sister now calls Birmingham home along with her husband and twin boys. After graduating at the top of his high school class, Dr. Spivey earned bachelors degrees in Business and Computer Science from The University of Alabama. He then went on to earn his Doctorate from The University of Alabama (UAB) School of Dentistry.
Dr. Spivey practiced dentistry in Alabama for four years. He spent his first year out of school practicing alongside a well-respected dentist in a small rural community in south Alabama. He then pursued his dream of practice ownership and purchased his own rural practice just outside of his hometown. Dr. Spivey took great pride in transforming this practice into a modern, comfortable, full-service family and general dental office, providing greater access to care for his community. He expanded his skills by incorporating all facets of dentistry into his practice, from oral surgery, endodontics, and periodontics, to all areas of cosmetic and general comprehensive care. During that time, he also became certified as an Invisalign provider, providing orthodontic care for his patients as well. In 2014, life took a wonderfully unexpected turn, and Dr. Spivey sold his practice so he and his wife Julie could move to Hawaii, where Julie would earn her specialty degree in Pediatric Dentistry. While in Hawaii, Dr. Spivey practiced dentistry in a community health center, treating Hawaii’s underserved population. He helped establish a school-based dental program, which allowed teens with limited access to care the ability to receive treatment during school elective classes. Since relocating to Charlotte in 2016, Dr. Spivey has practiced dentistry in both the Monroe and Belmont areas. He has taken many hours of continuing dental education to expand his skillset even further, and he now also places dental implants.
Dr. Spivey has been an avid sportsman his entire life. He grew up playing multiple sports, of which basketball and football were his favorites. Now, outside of the office, he spends much of his time on or in the water, whether fishing, boating, wake surfing, scuba diving or spearfishing. He and Julie have been married since 2014. Along with their shared love of teeth, they enjoy traveling, watching Alabama football, exercising, and spending time with their adopted pup Dougie, a bulldog mix.
Dr. Spivey and Julie came to North Carolina with the intent of living on the lake, and they are truly excited to be relocating and practicing in the Denver area. They recently purchased another Denver property on Highway 16 and will be opening Julie’s pediatric dental practice there this winter. They are also proud new homeowners in Denver and look forward to providing excellent dental care for a community they now call home.
