Jeffery Smith, DDS

Meet Dr. Smith

I grew up on a small farm outside of Fresno. I was the oldest of five children. My father was a Hump Pilot during WW2, and later became a dentist. Unfortunately, he passed away when I was 14. After high school I went on to the University of the Pacific, majoring in Biochemistry, on a full football scholarship.

I don’t play football anymore, though I was a “Ball Dude” for the S.F. Giants last year– today, cycling is my passion, and I like to ski, hike, fish and to work on my Triumph TR4 sports car as well.

After graduating from the University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry in San Francisco and gaining experience working for the Indian Health Service in Arizona, I bought a practice in Dinuba, CA. I later relocated to Sonora in 1998. I currently have two large dogs, Blue and Bridgette, a cat, and five African tortoises.

My daughter Alyssa went to Princeton University where she pitched for the Tigers Softball team that played in the College Softball World Series two years in a row. Alyssa then went to Loyola of Chicago Law School. She practices law in Maryland (she also passed her insurance underwriter’s exams), and is raising my three grandchildren Jill, Colin, and Brett who are 10, 8, and 5 years old! 

Yours in good dental health, 
Dr. Jeffery Smith
