Jeffery Damon, DMD, FACP

Whatever we write down here as staff at Dental Services, it will never be enough to truly express how we feel towards losing a member of our family.

We can go on about his love for his son and wife, his gentleness and kindness towards his patients, his wonderful outlook towards life, but that would only be scratching the surface of how truly great this man was.

Our lives were enriched knowing this man and we are truly indebted for the time that we had with him.
