I’m a Rochester native. I grew up here in town and went away to undergrad at St. Olaf College just up the street in Northfield and then University of Minnesota for dental school. Part of the reason I got into dentistry is I had some role models in my upbringing. I didn’t have any relatives or anything like that who were dentists but I had an excellent dentist myself growing up and then my orthodontist as well who were really encouraging and when I had an interest, they were very good about answering my questions.
Dr. Sperling grew up in Rochester, and he is happy to be able to serve his hometown community. He became a dentist because he liked his family dentist as a child and liked the idea of always learning new things.
After graduating from St. Olaf College, he completed his dental education at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Dr. Sperling has his mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry and his fellowship in both the International College of Oral Implantologists and the American College of Dentists. He also serves on the Minnesota Board of Dentistry.
Dr. Sperling is certified to administer local anesthetic and CPR, AED, and first aid. He has additional training in OSHA and HIPAA compliance, implant dentistry, and Invisalign.
Since 1983, dentistry has allowed Dr. Sperling to be involved with something that he is passionate about. It is still exciting to him, and he looks forward to the experiences that each new day brings. His favorite part of his job is the people. He works with a wonderful group of people at the office, and his patients are great people, too. He feels that his patients enjoy coming to see him because he and our team always try to treat them like they would treat members of their own family.
Dr. Sperling and his wife are the proud parents of two adult children and one granddaughter. He enjoys skiing, playing tennis, and cycling.
