Jeff L. Dickson, DMD, MS, MS

Dr Jeff DicksonDr. Dickson and his family have been living in Winchester for over 4 years. He’s been married to his wife Katy for 18 years and has two sons 9 and 6 yrs old, as well as their new dog. Dr. Dickson and his family are so happy and proud to be a part of this community as the people and town are simply amazing! Dr. Dickson spent nearly 9 years in Saudi Arabia where his father was a petroleum engineer. That experience afforded him the opportunity growing up (and as an adult) to travel extensively and over time idealize what type of environment/community he would like to raise his family in. Winchester, VA has exceeded he and his wife’s expectations.

They moved here from Kentucky where he completed his 3 year residency at the prestigious University of Kentucky Periodontal/Implant Training Program following 4 years of dental school at the University of Louisville. Dr. Dickson enjoys most spending time and traveling with his family trying to provide his kids with a similar travel opportunity yet establish small town American roots being ultimately proudest living in the greatest country on Earth.
