“Currently with all the recent advancements in dentistry, it’s an exciting time to be a part of this field. Dentistry has improved not only to provide better care but also to help cater to those who suffer from dental anxiety. I love the way dentistry can affect people’s lives. Whether it’s a brand new smile or just getting rid of a toothache, I enjoy the difference I can make in that person’s life.”
Dr. Jeffrey T. Root completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1999. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry (located in southern California) in 2004.
Dr. Root was blessed to be able to grow up in the Brevard, NC community. He along with his wife Natacha have 4 children Kylie, Bailey, Reese and Tate. They spend most of their family time enjoying the mountains or playing at the lake. Dr. Root’s hobbies include golfing, water skiing and fishing.
Dr. Root enjoyed his schooling at Loma Linda as it provided a chance to take part in mission service to many areas that do not typically receive dental care. Loma Linda also provided Dr. Root with extensive clinical training in all areas of general dentistry, including: Cosmetic Dentistry; Endodontics (root canals); Prosthodontics (crowns, bridges, and dentures); Oral Surgery (dental implants); Periodontics (having to do with gums and underlying bone); advanced training in Orthodontics (Invisalign®) as well as Pediatric Dentistry.
