About Dr. G. Philip Spencer

Periodontist Dr. G. Philip Spencer established his private practice in Austin, Texas, almost as soon as he finished his postgraduate training and work as a clinical associate. He provides the full range of periodontics, including dental implants, which are given to patients in need of tooth replacement. Not only do implants look and feel like real teeth, they leave patients feeling confident about their smiles. Dr. G. Philip Spencer also has a great deal of experience in gum grafting, a procedure that provides a solution to receding gums. The process requires a gingival graft, in which the doctor takes a thin strip of tissue from the roof of the mouth and stitches it in place over the exposed root of the tooth. Other services offered by Dr. G. Philip Spencer include root scaling and planning, crown lengthening, tissue regeneration, cosmetic periodontal surgery, and osseous surgery. Many patients seek his care for periodontal disease, an infection of the gums that can lead to destruction of the teeth. The disease can be prevented through proper and consistent oral care, but doctoral intervention is recommended when an individual experiences bleeding from the gums while brushing or eating, loose teeth, receding gums, or ongoing bad breath. Dr. G. Philip Spencer is available to meet with patients Monday through Friday. To set up an appointment, patients can call (512) 346-2490. Dr. G. Philip Spencer began preparing for his dental career during his undergraduate days at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where he studied biology and participated in the Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society. Upon graduation, he enrolled in the University of Texas Dental School in Houston. He excelled at his studies, earning the senior student Orthodontics Award and graduating in the top 10 percent of his class. Dr. G. Philip Spencer also completed a dental implant preceptorship and earned a Certificate of Periodontics from the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio.
