Meet The Doctor

Dr. Lindsay Spears DDS

Dr. Lindsay Spears DDS


I am blessed to be the dentist at Carolina Crossroads Dental Care. I am originally from Lenoir, NC and I live with my wonderful husband, Brandon, and two children, Ella Rose and Eli. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Dental Hygiene and Chemistry and then continued at the UNC School of Dentistry to achieve my doctorate in 2013. I am such a dental nerd. I love teeth and learning more and more about the ever-changing world of dentistry.

In my free time, you can find me in continuing education courses, reading or spending time with my family. I sing in the choir at my church, Eufola Baptist, and I love to travel. I am very excited to see what the future holds for us here at CCDC and I hope that includes you!

Dr. Spears has completed a Fellowship in Forensic Dentistry, an important area of continuing education for dental professionals. Through her dedication to ongoing learning, Dr. Spears is better equipped to provide comprehensive care to her patients and support the community as a whole. She is available for Forensic Dental consulting.

Dental Assistant II

I am happily married to Matthew Hix and have the honor of being the mother of two wonderful kids, Scout and Riley. I love my job and the office I work in. Not everybody is lucky enough to get to work with five of their best friends. In my free time, I am very active in my church and community and love to be outside. I am so fortunate to be a part of a growing practice and I look forward to all the experiences to be had with my coworkers as well as with the patients I have yet to meet!

Lori - Dental Assistant II


Dental Assistant II

I have worked in the dental field for over 25 years and love my job! When I was young and had to go to the dentist, I was terrified! I was the one that would cry the whole time I was in the dental chair. After having my second child, I decided to go back to school and, surprisingly, decided on dental assisting. This helped me overcome my fear and has made me enjoy helping anxious patients get through their dental procedures. I graduated from Grayson College Dental Assisting in 1983. I love what I do and the people I have gotten to know over the years. I have been blessed to have some awesome ladies to call my coworkers and my friends. In my free time, I enjoy riding motorcycles with my husband, camping and spending time with my family and friends.

Our Dental Philosophy

Personalized Care

Our patients tell us how much they love our friendly team and gentle care. Because we understand that dental visits can be difficult for some people, we make it a priority to help you enjoy your experience and feel comfortable by taking the time to listen to your needs and getting to know you personally. A strong relationship with you allows us to personalize your care and better serve you. From the front desk to the treatment chair, we are here to help.

Patient Education

We know that the more educated you are during your visit, the more relaxed and confident you will feel. Our reliable team will always explain treatment options and answer any questions you might have so you can feel informed and in control. If something is still unclear, Dr. Spears will personally sit down and draw out explanations so you can better understand the details of your particular situation. We want to help you make informed, confident decisions.

At Carolina Crossroads Dental Care we work hard to maintain a cutting-edge facility to better serve you. Our dental technologies, such as digital x-rays and electronic records, help us deliver a more accurate diagnosis and better results for you. We continually strive to incorporate the most up-to-date equipment to improve the quality of your care. We understand that technology helps us improve as a practice, and we invest in it with you in mind.
