Dr Jeff SpillersiSmile Tucson - Owner / Partner

Man, do I like dentistry! That makes me weird, right? Yes, it does. I love helping people get over their fear of the dentist. I also love all the new technology that helps me accomplish this. This bio is so you can hear a little bit about me, so let’s do that (but no boring stuff I promise).

First, I am an identical twin, and he is a dentist too! You should all be grateful he doesn’t live here in Tucson, or else we would play tricks on our patients and make you guess which one we are. I was born in Casper, Wyoming. So, for all you snowbirds from colder climates that come here, I get it. I grew up in Reno, Nevada and know a bit about gambling if that sort of thing interests you. It’s also where I learned to golf. If you golf, I want you to tell me all about it! I went to dental school in San Francisco, so I got a good taste of big city life for a few years. What a great city. Very interesting. If you have ever been, we can compare notes.

I first started out in Reno, Nevada as a dentist where I worked primarily in nursing homes and made a lot of dentures. My experience in dentures exceeds that of most other dentists. I ended up practicing dentistry in Tucson, Arizona because my grandparents lived here. We used to come as kids and swim in their pool. I never thought at that time that I would end up living here, and now I love it! I have been here for ten years now. My Spanish is starting to get better as a result, and I love trying to learn more Spanish from my patients!

Now onto the best thing that has ever happened to me – a wife and three girls. They keep me on my toes, teach me patience, and I love them to death. Pray for me as these teenage years come! Last thing for the bio, in case you are still reading this, is that I have been with iSmile Dentistry for 9 years now. I like the people and business philosophy so much that several years ago I partnered with them and am now helping to expand our company so we can serve more people in Arizona and Utah. I like the challenge of learning more about dentistry and business. I am a lifelong learner. I hope to see you soon at my dental office so I can help you feel the difference that a quality dental experience can bring!

Dr Christian Rivera
Dr Christian RiveraiSmile Tucson - Owner / Partner

Dr. Christian Rivera was born in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up in Auga Prieta, Sonora in Mexico a border town with Douglas, Arizona. He comes from a family of 6 children, with himself being the 5th and, curious to mention, forming part of the last 3, in other words, he is a triplet. His passion about heathcare was inherited by his father, a now retired General Surgeon who always taught him and his siblings the importance of helping their community. Not only his father has a doctoral degree, but 4 of his siblings also did go the same route.

His first experience with dentistry was when he had braces. Not only his mouth was getting the benefits from orthodontics treatment, but his personal confidence, and esthetics were boosted up as well. That was the moment when he discovered that dentistry was more about teeth, and how lives can change with the pertinent treatment.

He graduated from the University of Arizona, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Linguistics and minor in Chemistry. In 2015, Dr. Rivera attended Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health, where he spent two years in Kirksville, MO, mastering pre-clinical coursework. In 2017, he moved to St. Louis to complete his clinical training by providing dental care to underserved population. After graduation, he moved to McAllen, Texas, and worked as a Dentist for 2 years, as well as being a leader in the community composed mainly, but not exclusively, by Mexicans and Spanish speaking community. He is active member of the American Dental Association, and Hispanic Dental Association. Dr. Rivera is passionate about providing high quality dental care, with a comprehensive approach
that treats patients by individual needs.

In his free time, he enjoys playing and watching sports, Netflix and chill, and spending time with his family. With his skills and charisma, Dr. Rivera
will make sure you will have a soothing visit!

Here is a little about myself, my favorite places are the beach and the fair, even though I don’t go in the water, and I don’t get on the rides but I do love the food! I love listening to music and hope to go to a Red-Hot Chili Peppers concert one day. I like finding new recipes to try so if you have any good ones let me know, just don’t ask me to bake anything because I will fail every time. My favorite part of my days is having dinner with my 3 kids, it is messy, noisy and perfectly chaotic every time and even our dog and lizard join us sometimes.

I have a horse that i named Spirit, like the movie “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron ” they are very identical, hence the name. I have been interested in dentistry since i was young.
