Dr. Spencer Marsh

Originally from Rochester NY, Dr. Marsh earned both his undergraduate and dental degree in biology from the University of Buffalo. He then decided to leave the cold of upstate NY and completed his Masters in Orthodontics at the University of Texas at San Antonio where he graduated as the chief resident.

Between his undergrad and dental school training, Dr. Marsh worked as an orthodontic assistant for three years. It was then that he knew that he wanted to make orthodontics his career. He has been a patient, an assistant, and now as an orthodontist he is excited to be working in the Raleigh community.

Outside of the office Dr. Marsh enjoys spending time with friends and his wife, Gina. He’s an Eagle Scout and loves the outdoors whether it’s hiking, camping, or boating.
