About Dentist

The dentist is Philip Spory, DDS, MS.

Dr. Phil

You can call him Dr. Phil.

Phil traveled around before settling in King George County near Dahlgren. He was born in Ohio and grew up in New York before going to college at Duke University in NC. Dr. Phil is a curious fellow and studied a lot of different subjects before becoming a dentist. He received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Duke and then traveled to CA where he studied some more chemistry and math at the University of California at Berkeley.

From there, he went to the University of Wisconsin at Madison where he got an MS in chemistry by researching the physical chemistry of DNA. He then moved to Seattle, WA where he did research on DNA sequencing machines and studied chemical engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle.

After that, Dr. Phil went into computers, became a software developer, and worked at companies in the Seattle area such as Microsoft. He went back to the U. of Washington and studied computer science for a couple years before having a change of heart.

It was then that he discovered his true calling and was accepted to the University of Washington Dental School. This is one of the very finest dental schools in the country (really, look it up) . He was glad to be accepted there in addition to it being located close by. He earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2008.

After practicing dentistry in the Seattle area for 3 years, he decided to move closer to his family and came to Virginia. He was an associate for a year in VA while he scoped out the state for a good place to start a practice. He picked King George in June of 2012, but it has taken a long time to settle on a location and build the office.

Phil likes science, math, running, hiking and playing the piano.

Dr. Phil is a proud member of these organizations:
