Meet Our Team
Dr. Jeffrey Spillers
Dr. Jeffrey Spillers was born in Casper, Wyoming, where he spent his early childhood with his identical twin brother and younger sister, before his family relocated to Reno, Nevada. He attended school from elementary through college in “The Biggest Little City,” complete with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Nevada-Reno. Dr. Spillers was then accepted into the prestigious three-year program at the Arthur Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, California. He spent three years learning didactic and clinical dental work, as well as becoming involved in many other facets, including charitable work through the SCOPE program, and certification in Invisalign.
Upon completion of dental school, Dr. Spillers and his family relocated to Reno for a couple of years. Dr. Spillers gained the knowledge of starting up a practice, including office management, and exponentially expanded his clinical experience. He established a nursing-home program, providing dentistry to over one thousand residents at five of the local facilities. He gained extensive knowledge in geriatric dentistry, including denture fabrication. Dr. Spillers also became very involved in local business organizations, such as LeTip and the Chamber of Commerce.
At the beginning of 2013, Dr. Spillers and his family relocated to Tucson to join the iSmile family. He is constantly expanding his clinical knowledge with the help of implant and orthodontic fellowships through the company. He looks forward to serving the local community and establishing his roots in Tucson for a long time to come. While in dental school, Jeff married his college sweetheart, Stevie, and they currently have three beautiful girls. Dr. Spillers enjoys golfing year-round, discovering his new hometown’s beauty, and sharing dental stories with his brother, who is a dentist with the U.S. Navy.
Dr. Justin Rider
Dr. Justin L. Rider obtained his Bachelor of Science degree at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale before receiving his dental degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. Prior to entering private practice, he served an advanced education in general dentistry residency at Sheppard Air Force Base in Texas and was also assigned to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson for three years. In 2010, after completing an additional year of clinical and continuing education, Dr. Rider was recognized by the Air Force Specialty Code as an Advanced Clinical Dentist.
Dr. Rider’s postgraduate education provided him with additional training in the areas of IV sedation, oral surgery, wisdom tooth extractions, dental implants and orthodontics. This training allows him to provide his patients with more comprehensive treatment options in the comfort of their own dental office.
In his spare time, Dr. Rider is a volunteer dog walker at the Southern Arizona Humane Society, and he further serves the community by providing dental care at HopeFest. He also enjoys anything outdoors, including hiking, camping, swimming and photography. Dr. Rider and his wife, Crystal, have a young son named Wyatt.
Trish – Office Coordinator
I have been in the dental field since 1999. I travel from office to office and help facilitate the staff and patients. I love my job! I love that our offices have a huge impact on people lives.
Being able to bring smiles to our patients is very rewarding. I have been very blessed to work with a fantastic staff and patients. When I am not working I enjoy hanging out with my family. I love watching my son play baseball and I am involved with my daughter’s girl scout troop.
Lucia – Office Manager
Lucia is originally from California, but has been in Tucson since 2006. She is the mother of 2 crazy kids, Anthony 18 & Kathy 16 and they keep her on her toes.
She is also dog mother to a precious 3yr old bulldog named Molly & a Heeler/mix puppy named Suki.
Lucia likes taking lots of road trips to California with her kiddos, dogs & her better half Duke.
Lucia has been in the dental field since 1996. She started as a Dental Assistant straight out of high school and gradually worked her way up to the administrative services. She has a love/hate relationship with Insurance Companies.
Lucia is a social butterfly and people person.
What Lucia enjoys about her job is the interaction that she has with all sorts of folks, and the satisfaction of helping people find their smile again.
Martha – Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Pima Community College with Honors recognition and received the HuFriedy Outstanding Clinic Award known as the “Golden Scaler Award” for my clinical judgement and skills in dental hygiene services. I am truly passionate about my profession and love helping people feel confident about their teeth and overall oral health. I believe it is important to make the connection between the oral cavity and the rest of the body. I can guarantee to make you feel comfortable and be as informative as possible.
I am the youngest of three and love spending time and being a role model for my nieces and nephews. I like hiking, capturing nature scenery images, cloud gazing, tacos, and butterflies. My favorite TV show is Criminal Minds. My all-time favorite vacation destination is the beach. In the future I would like to travel the world and be able to provide my services and knowledge to others.
Sofia – Treatment Coordinator
I am originally from Tucson, and am a wife of eighteen years to my husband Mickey. I am also a mother of two, to Victoria (17) and Emilio (13) who definitely keep me on my toes. I’m the youngest of three, and have two older brothers. I started in the dental field after my son was born. I have enjoyed working in the dental field for 13 years. I started my externship with Dr. Neil Anders back in 2003. The staff and Dr. Anders taught me well and we all got along so great that they invited me to stay on. I worked for Dr. Anders until 2007 when Dr. Harry Collins and his partner Trish Savage bought the office, and they kept me on. I have learned a lot from Dr. Collins. We all joke about how I came with office. And in 2013 Dr. Spillers joined our dental family. So I have had the pleasure of working with three great doctors and learned a lot along the way to make me a better assistant and patient care and treatment coordinator. I went from dipping X-rays to 3D digital X-rays. I love working with ALL my dental family.
Lori – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in southern Colorado, where I went to dental assisting school and graduated in 1999. I moved to Tucson soon after that and have been an assistant for 20 years now. I have worked for multiple dental specialties throughout my career.
I have two children, a 22-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son. I like to run in my free time and compete in sprint triathlons and half marathons throughout the year.
My love of music ranges from punk rock to salsa, and you might even find me at a concert or two.
Nadia has accomplished one of her many goals and gained her dental assisting certificate with honors in 2016. She would like to take her education further in dentistry by becoming a dental hygienist in the future. You will find that Nadia is always smiling and happy to assist patients in all aspects, from assisting the Dentist to scheduling your appointments. One of her many strengths is her knowledge in dental insurance plans. In addition to being a dental assistant she is also our insurance coordinator. In her spare time she enjoys working out and spending time with her family and her dog Lily who she considers her BFF.
Cressi – Regional Marketing Director – Arizona
Aloha! I’m Cressi, the Regional Sales and Marketing Director for iSmile Dental. I oversee the Marketing efforts for our 5 offices in Arizona.
I have been in the Dental field since 1985 and also have a background in Radio.
I moved to Tucson, AZ to be closer to my children and grandchildren after spending just over six years on the Big Island of Hawaii.
I love travelling to new places and seeing our beautiful country. I’m an avid photographer and had a successful photography business in Hawaii and had many of my photos published in local publications. Although I’ve accomplished many of my bucket list goals, like learning to fly a small plane…I still have many more to go. Next on the list is publishing my first book, due out before the end of the year 2017.
I look forward to watching the iSmile Family grow and be an active part of our many communities throughout Utah and Arizona.
