Jeff grew up in Santa Clara, California and later married Janet, his high school sweetheart, in 1973 while studying nutritional science at UC Berkeley. He then graduated from the UC San Francisco School of Dentistry in 1978. After raising three kids and running a dental practice in Santa Rosa for 29 years, Jeff and Janet decided to follow their dream of living and working in South Lake Tahoe. He purchased the practice from Dr. Elizabeth Swope in June, 2008 and plans to continue the long history of providing quality and compassionate dental care for the residents of South Lake Tahoe, Meyers and surrounding communities.

In his leisure time, Jeff enjoys hiking with Janet and their three dogs, as well as mountain biking, skiing and fishing. Jeff is an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and Sacramento District Dental Society.
