I am a native of Montana, born and raised in Great Falls. I attended the University of Montana in Missoula, where many family members still live today. I made my home in Minnesota back in 1981, and my two brothers and their families also call this area home.
My lovely wife, Kate, has been working with me at Long Lake Dental for 20+ years, as the office manager and partner in all major office decisions. We have 3 grown children, our oldest son who lives in Chicago, our daughter who also lives in Deephaven with her husband and three kids, and our youngest daughter who lives in Minneapolis and is a graphic designer.
I cannot think of another profession where I could be happier. I love the challenge of dentistry, both the routine and easy, and the difficult and thought-provoking. I thank my staff and colleagues for voting me three times into the Minnesota Monthly Magazine ranking for the “Top Dentists” in the area. I love helping people and am dedicated to doing my best.
My name is Jeff! I recently moved to Minnesota from Chicago with my fiancé, Kayla. I grew up in North Carolina, but have also lived in Mississippi, Illinois, Indiana, and Alabama. I love traveling, sports, boats, and Kayla and our new puppy Leo. I did a year of Oral Surgery training in Chicago after graduating from dental school where I gained a lot of experience with dental implants, but I do love all areas of the field.
I enjoy treating children and adults of all ages and really appreciate all of the challenges dentistry has to offer. I am excited to join the incredible staff at Long Lake Dental and feel honored to be part of such a wonderful team that really cares about all the patients. I am looking forward to meeting all of the patients that trust us with their dental care!
Graduate of the University of Minnesota. I have been working at Long Lake Dental for many years and continue to do so because of the wonderful staff and patients here.
I attend many continuing education classes to stay current on treatment options for our patients. I volunteer at “Give Kids a Smile” – a program at Sharing and Caring Hands, I volunteer for the Golf Classic “Fore” Diabetes Research, and I also work on the “Pay It Forward” Fundraiser to help patients with their bills while going through breast cancer.
Patient relationships are important to me and I will try to make each patient comfortable while delivering quality care.
My husband and I have 2 daughters who attend the University of Minnesota and an adorable yellow lab.
I enjoy walking, boating, golfing, fishing, traveling and gardening.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I am grateful to find a team that always puts patients first and strives to make every dental experience the best possible. I love what I do and truly enjoy coming to work each day. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is getting to know my patients and helping them make lasting changes to their oral and overall health.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, being outdoors, running and watching Minnesota sports.
