It is my goal as a dentist to provide help for those in need. It is my privilege to work with our patients, and one that I do not take lightly. Our team is dedicated to be comprehensive with your oral healthcare and take the time to treat you as a person, not just a condition. We want to build a relationship with you. You are not just a number to us; you are family!
Education and Continuing Education
My interest in the healthcare field began in high school, where I was an EMT and enjoyed helping people in an immediate, tangible way. As an undergrad at Nebraska Wesleyan University, I studied biology and pre-med. I continued to the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry to earn my Doctorate of Dental Surgery and fulfil my desire to make a difference in the lives of those in my community.
I purchased the dental practice of Dr. Clayton Peters at our current location in 1998, and began practice as Milford Dental Clinic that September. My wife Dr. Janna Spahr and I work together as a dental team to provide for our patients’ dental needs with a combined 32 years of dental practice experience.
Throughout my career, I have held a strong interested in advancing my training in oral surgery, endodontics, and dental implantology. This type of training allows patient to have all their oral health needs met within our office, without the need to refer care to specialists. We take pride in offering this continuity of care, which is no less than what our patients deserve.

I have been married to Dr. Janna Spahr since 2001. We have two lovely daughters, Savannah and Sarah, in addition to two hunting dogs, a house cat, and chickens that keep us stocked with farm-fresh eggs.
Janna and I enjoy watching our daughters in their various activities, including volleyball, basketball, and dance. During the winter months, I take our dogs to hunt pheasants, while my summers are spent on home improvement projects and driving my riding lawn mower.
