MEET THE TEAM
Our Warm and Friendly Dental Team
We work as a team at Springhill Dental, and that means you will receive the same high-quality care delivered in a compassionate manner by everyone at our practice. It’s not just their skills that keep you smiling, but their warmth and friendliness as well!
KARA SMITH, RDA
Kara has acquired a wide range of experience since beginning her career in the dental field 26 years ago. She is not only our office manager, but also our insurance and scheduling coordinator, dental assistant, and “office mom.” Basically, she does it all around our office. Kara grew up right here in North Little Rock. She has been married to her husband Shawn for 25 years. Together they have two children, Tyler (Hallie) and Haley (Justin). We and our patients are blessed to have Kara on our team.
KIMBERLY SPAFFORD, RDA
Kimberly started her dental career in 1994. When her son was born, she began her next career raising him as a stay-at-home mom. After he left for college, she re-entered the dental field, joining our team in 2018. Kim is normally the first person you come into contact with for scheduling treatment or assisting with insurance. You may also see her in the back, assisting Dr. Shearer. Her outgoing personality brings happiness and joy to all she comes into contact with. Kim grew up in North Little Rock and remains close to our community with ties to police and military families. Kim has been married for 26 years to her husband Todd. They have one son, Clayton.
