Meet the Doctors
Dr. Jodie Spencer
Board Certified Pediatric Dentists
Jodie (Stickley) Spencer was born and raised in Maryville, Missouri. She began dental school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City on a full-ride Navy scholarship after accepting a commission as a Naval officer in 1999. The Spencers spent three years in Japan on assignment from the Navy, during which time their two youngest children, Madison and Brady were born. During their tour in Japan, Dr. Jodie was chosen as Junior Officer of the Quarter and Junior Officer of the Year of the hospital in which she worked-the first dentist to be recognized as such. She was also awarded two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals and one Navy Commendation Medal during that tour, a significant achievement for such a short period of time.
Dr. Jodie loves her job as a pediatric dentist and treats each patient with a gentle Mother's touch. The Spencers are adamant that each patient is treated as if they were their own child, and are thrilled to have such a wonderful staff. In her free time, Dr. Jodie loves spending time with her family, and often can be found having family "campouts" in the living room on weekends. Other beloved family activities include boating, traveling, and lots of trips to the library and bookstore as she and her children are all avid readers.
Dr. Jodie Spencer is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry as well as a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Missouri Dental Association, the Greater Kansas City Dental Society, and the Eastern Jackson County Dental Association.
