Excellence in the practice of Dental Medicine is a proud tradition in the Spodak family. Dr. Craig Spodak is a third generation dentist who earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the acclaimed Tufts University, graduating with highest honors. He joined his father, Dr. Myles Spodak, in his practice in Delray Beach, Fla. in 1998 with a dream to change the way patients experience dental care. He inherited the company in 2006 and immediately began to develop a new vision for the modern dental practice with a goal to deliver comprehensive dental care from a team of general and specialty dentists in one convenient, 13,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, LEED Gold Certified facility.
His dream was to change the way patients experience dental care and worked tirelessly to reinvent the patient perception of just how great a dental appointment could be. All phases of dentistry are performed from a team of nine dentists in 18 operatories and surgical suites, in addition to having an on-site lab with lab technicians and master ceramists who provide same-day dentistry. He also places a strong importance on living out the company’s core values, which enables the team to provide patients with the highest caliber of comprehensive dental care while consistently exceeding expectations.
Dr. Craig is a pioneer for eradicating childhood tooth decay and founded the All-Star Smiles Foundation with Marlins’ All-Star fielder, Giancarlo Stanton, in 2016.
He is also committed to helping other dentists uncover costly fees they’re paying for their 401(k) plans and was recently featured in Tony Robbins’ new book, Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook. As the brand ambassador, he is introducing the world to a next generation 401(k) plan.
Dr. Craig has also committed himself to expanding his own professional skills and has garnered various advanced credentials, including becoming a Top 1 Percent provider of Invisalign®. He also lectures nationally about the benefits of this teeth-straightening method.
Beyond his professional interests, Dr. Craig is very active in the Delray Beach community and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the All-Star Smiles Foundation that he co-founded with Marlins All-star fielder, Giancarlo Stanton; as a partner with Dr. Peter Boulden on the Bullet Proof Dental Practice podcast; as a partner with Chuck Blakeman on the Get off the Treadmill Summit (GOTT Summit); on the Board of Directors for Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA); has served as Chairman of the Delray Beach Planning and Zoning Board; is a national lecturer for creating team culture in business; is a fitness and motor sports enthusiast; a champion of ecological responsibility; an accomplished private plane pilot; and is conversant in five languages. Spodak Dental Group was named a 2017 Inc5000 fastest-growing business, and Dr. Craig was also featured on the February 2017 cover of The Progressive Dentist Magazine and was named the 2012 Business Person of the Year by the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. Along with his wife Zaicha, he lives in Delray Beach, Fla. with their two children, Sage and Gavin.
