History of our Office
Dr. Carl Jeffery opened the dental practice in Van Wert on January 1, 1974 at the Medical Arts Building on 140 Fox Road. Throughout time his pratice grew to point where the Medical Arts could no longer provide enough space. In 1985, he built the building standing today with his two friends Bill Laukhuf and Rod Stoller who have an accounting firm together at the building.
Dr. Jessica Jeffery-Mohr had an interest for dentistry very early in her life. By the time she was in Junior High she had already decided to become a dentist. In July 2005, Dr. Jessica Jeffery-Mohr offically partnered with her father and they both have enjoyed working and learning from one another ever since.
