You may remember, on Friday, News 25 aired a report about a ribbon cutting at the Gulfport clinic, changing its name from the Spraberry Dental Clinic to the Gulf Coast Dental Care Clinic. Dr. Clyde "Bud" Spraberry opened the clinic 45 years ago.
Dr. Spraberry’s son, Chris Spraberry, eventually joined his father’s practice, following in his footsteps as a dentist. Sadly, Chris passed away in 2009, but his memory lives on and clinic owner, Dr. Trey Sutton, still works with Chris’ father, Dr. Clyde "Bud’ Spraberry, and Dr. Patton Webb at the clinic.
News 25 would like to clarify some incorrect information that aired in our report Friday, which said the clinic was dedicated to Dr. Clyde spraberry, when in fact it was dedicated to his son, Dr. Chris Spraberry. Dr. Clyde Spraberry, 45 years later, is still working as a dentist at the clinic.
