The Physics and Philosophy of Orthodontics

  • Born and raised in Washington County where he graduated from Smithsburg High School.
  • Dr. Jeff went on to attend Bucknell University where he earned a dual degree in Physics and Philosophy. He drew a connection between the two disciplines with a senior thesis that examined the philosophical debate that originated with the development of quantum physics.
  • Dr. Jeff continues to draw from his undergraduate background in how he approaches his professional practice, searching for the fundamental truths of ‘why’ to treat patients while understanding the mechanical principles of ‘how’ they can best be treated.
