I was born and raised in Oklahoma with six brothers and one sister. After getting married, my husband and I decided to move to Bozeman for him to go to school at MSU. It was here in Bozeman that I made a really close friend who helped me begin my journey in dentistry. I now have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Spencer and the Suite Dental team since April 2019. I love working at Suite Dental because of the amazing team I get to work with. They all have such big hearts and genuinely love helping people. I love working for Dr. Spencer because he is so caring and obviously loves people and helping them better their dental health. In my free time, I love being in the outdoors, riding horses, and spending time with friends and family.


Jennifer Hayes


Welcome to Suite Dental! I’m Jennifer, the team’s hygienist with a little over 10 years of experience in the dental field. I graduated with my BSDH in 2010 from ODS/OIT in Oregon and then went on to spend 9 years in Homer, Alaska serving the underserved working in public health and in private practice. I had the pleasure of working with Dr Spencer briefly in Alaska and knew our career paths would cross again because of his dedicated passion in providing quality dental care. I am thrilled to be a part of his team now here in Bozeman. Giving patients compassionate, comfortable care and a pleasant experience while educating on the risks and consequences of periodontal disease has always been a main focus for me. At Suite Dental, we put our patients and their needs first all while making it the best experience possible. With access to an exceptional amount of quality continuing education, we strive to always be on the leading edge of technologies in our field so that we can provide excellent care and better serve our patients. With a focus on holistic dentistry, our team can assist with all of your dental needs from treating periodontal disease, restorative dentistry, Botox for TMD issues, amalgam removal, extractions and more all the way to full mouth rehabilitation! Dr. Spencer and our team want to welcome you and look forward to serving you and your family!


Val Gunderson


Hi, my name is Val, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this amazing team! With 17 years as a dental assistant, I have experience from orthodontics to oral surgery and everything in between. I have what you’d call “a servant’s heart” and greatly enjoy helping others. I was born and raised in Kodiak, Alaska and grew up in a commercial fishing family. I started my journey in dentistry in Anchorage and recently moved down from Homer, Alaska. Dr. Spencer’s passion for health-centered dentistry and his genuine care for not only patients but also his employees makes me proud to be a part of Suite Dental. The pride in our practice and for working for Dr. Spencer only grew as he led our team into being fully prepared to safely continue to serve our wonderful community through this pandemic. In my free time, my husband, two beautiful children and I love getting outdoors and our family movie nights. I hope to see you soon in our office to help in sharing a great dental experience with you!

I moved to Bozeman from the Paradise Valley area in 2016. I fell in love with Montana after coming from Massachusetts to work summers at Yellowstone National Park in 1993. Given the opportunity to learn and grow in the field of dentistry has been an amazing journey. Dr. Spencer and the team at Suite Dental are supportive and knowledgeable, and I love the commitment to our patients’ wellbeing that I see every day. Dr. Spencer’s knowledge and skill in the various aspects of dentistry has exceeded my expectations. In our free time, my husband and I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, fly fishing and camping. I can’t wait to meet you in the office!




Hello and welcome! I am a hygienist with a diverse background of experience. In that time, I have learned there is no such thing as “one size fits all.” Therefore, getting to know and caring for each person individually is my source of enjoyment. I am honored and humbled to be a member of this team, partnering with you to support your smile goals. Dr. Spencer’s skills are rare, comprehensive and compassionate. I look forward to seeing you in the office!
