Dr Jeff Dick Dr. Jeff Dick:

Jeff Dick was born and raised in Irondequoit. At the age of five, he wanted to be a physician, but while having orthodontic treatment in middle school, he found it amazing how a set of crooked teeth like his could be gently and gradually moved through his jawbone to their proper positions. His orthodontist noticed and nurtured Jeff's interest in orthodontics by training and hiring him at the age of 14 as an orthodontic laboratory technician, making fixed and removable retainers and other appliances, and forming plaster models of teeth (dental casts).

After graduating from West Irondequoit High School, he pursued a pre-dental curriculum while attending Denison University in Granville, Ohio. From Denison he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1980 and worked as an Analytical Chemist for a division of the Eastman Kodak Company where the principal products were natural vitamin E and monoglycerides.

Despite a promising career and advancement at Kodak, Jeff had to follow his calling to dentistry, and was accepted in 1982 at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry in Cleveland, Ohio, where he rediscovered the same awe and amazement in general dentistry that he had earlier experienced with orthodontics. He earned his doctorate in 1986 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and decided to come back to Monroe County to practice general dentistry.

For over 2 years he worked as an associate dentist in the City of Rochester. In 1989 at 3 West Avenue in Hilton Dr. Jeff Dick acquired ownership of the previous dental practice. He purchased a house in the Hilton school district, but sold it in 1997 when he moved to be with his new bride, Laura, and adopted daughter, Samantha, in their West Irondequoit home. Since then, Laura and Jeff have been blessed with two sons, Colby and Jordan.
