Dr. Amanda Spitz

As a mother of two, I understand the importance of quality, honest and comfortable health care. I also appreciate that every child has a special personality and is unique in their level of adaptability and coping skills.

 

It was during my second year of dental school that I realized how much I enjoyed the challenges of treating children. I also found that along with these challenges come phenomenal rewards. It is my goal that every child will come to appreciate and enjoy visiting us at Smiles In Motion.

 

I founded Smiles In Motion in 2008. I built and opened the doors to our first office in Chippewa Falls, WI in 2009. I have created child-centered dental clinics that I hope will inspire children and their families. My team and I are committed to providing excellent dental care for the children of Chippewa Valley, Hudson and Amery and surrounding communities. Our goal is to make each child’s experience as pleasant as it can be while providing them with the highest quality of care possible.

 

I grew up in northwest Wisconsin in the towns of Turtle Lake and Barron. My husband, Ross, and I have been residents of Chippewa Falls since August 2005. We are blessed to have two wonderful children, Ella and Libby.
