Dr PaceDr. Jeffrey Pace, DMD, MS

Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Dr. Jeff Pace is a native Northeastern Pennsylvanian, graduating from Dallas High School. He then moved out west and completed his undergraduate studies (and a lot of skiing) at the University of Colorado at Boulder. After his stint in Colorado, he then returned to PA and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia, and then was drawn back out (a little further) west and completed his postgraduate orthodontic training at the Oregon Health and Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. After spending 3 more wonderful years in Oregon working as an orthodontist at Kaiser Permanente, home was calling him back and he decided to move back east once and for all. He has also successfully completed the requirements to become a board-certified orthodontist, meaning that he’s gone above and beyond to further his craft. Dr. Pace enjoys all things outdoors, among them skiing, backpacking, mountain biking, and mountaineering. He is an avid world traveler, as he has traveled to 5 continents (so far!). He is also a karaoke king and plays a few different musical instruments. He’s also a cat guy- he has 2 sibling kitties named Po and Lala (yes, from the Teletubbies).
