Meet The Team
Dr. Spivey has wanted to be a dentist as long she can remember. She sent herself to school while maintaining a full-time job. During summer breaks she would fly to Kodiak to work the fish weirs and soon developed a love for Kodiak.
Jennifer graduated from Creighton University in Omaha, NE in 1992 with a BS in psychology and in 1996 with a doctorate in dental surgery. Although she enjoys all of her patients, she quickly discovered her talent and passion for children.
She prefers to take her time explaining each procedure carefully to her patients. She dislikes patient pain and discomfort and is gifted with small hands and a gentle touch.
Kodiak is where she met her husband Berry and together, they have two children, Kyle and Liz.
