In the Practice
Dr. Jeffries loves all aspects of dentistry and patient relationships. For him, every day is truly rewarding. A complex surgery or endodontic procedure is as rewarding as giving basic instruction about flossing and brushing. After all, everything he does in the practice is helping his patients, and that is his highest goal! In the practice, many patients tell Dr. Jeffries how much they appreciate the detailed and intense effort involved in quality dentistry, and that always makes him feel that he did his job well.
