As a dentist, Dr. Jefferson respects the trust that a patient places in him and his dental team, and strives to ensure that each visit to his office is a positive experience. Dr. Jefferson believes it is essential to engage with each patient, explaining the diagnosis and what treatment options are available to correct the situation. This helps the patient to make informed decisions about his or her treatment, and to be an active participant in all that happens.
Education and Continuing Education
Dr. Jefferson graduated from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery and then served for three years in the U.S. Air Force while stationed in Ramstein, Germany. During this time he sought out and received additional training in all specialties of dentistry. In addition to his training in the USAF, Dr. Jefferson continues to further his knowledge through active participation in and attendance at seminars, lectures, and dental conferences.
He also founded the Peninsula Group for Interdisciplinary Dentistry in 2007, which allows Dr. Jefferson to work closely with medical professionals who have the same philosophy of a “grand rounds” approach when it comes to complicated cases. This results in streamlined treatment and improved outcomes for his patients.
Dr. Jefferson maintains active memberships in the:
- American Dental Association
- Academy of Operative Dentistry
- Academy of General Dentistry (Fellow)
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists
Dr. Jefferson has lived all over the world, because he is the son of a pipeline worker. That includes time spent in places such as Bangkok, Thailand, Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, and his time in Germany while serving in the Air Force.
