“I love what I do because orthodontics makes a noticeable difference that can dramatically influence the way patients feel about themselves and their smiles. Working with kids of all ages and motivated adults introduces me to a great variety of patients. Before treatment, many patients are embarrassed about the appearance of their teeth, but afterwards they can’t stop looking at them.” – Dr. Jeff Gamblin
Passionate about his work, and equally as passionate about his patients, Dr. Jeff Gamblin is a gentle, compassionate orthodontist. He enjoys the process of getting to know each patient as an individual. The relationships that naturally develop between his patients, their families, and himself are meaningful and satisfying. Dr. Gamblin is excited when he meets a new patient. He knows that not only will he work with them towards creating a more beautiful, healthy smile, but that he will also be afforded the opportunity to learn more about their lives, work, and dreams which always teaches him more about himself.
Through practicing orthodontics, Dr. Gamblin is able to make real, positive, and lasting changes in the lives of his patients. The results of his work are visible in a patient’s smile, oral health improvements, and increased self-esteem as they reach the end of treatment. The day that a patient’s braces are removed, and their new smile is revealed, Dr. Gamblin celebrates with them. He knows he has had a unique opportunity to make a difference.
