Jeffrey P. Wray, D.D.S.
Dr. Wray has been in private practice since 1993. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Creighton School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. He is a member of numerous dental societies and attends 30 – 40 hours of advanced education yearly.
Dr. Wray believes that health and function are the most important aspects of the mouth. It is critical that patients are informed of the condition of their teeth and oral tissues. He spends a great deal of time communicating with his patients; sharing knowledge that he has gained from years of experience in practice and from continuing education courses. Dr. Wray explains to his patients all of their dental treatment options and then allows them to choose which option will work best for them.
Dr. Wray works very closely with a wide variety of specialists in oral surgery, orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, and pedodontics who share his philosophy of oral and dental health. Together with these specialists all aspects of treatment can be met.
Phyllis J. Wray, R.D.H., M.A.
Phyllis has been involved in dentistry since she graduated from the dental hygiene program at Sheridan College, Sheridan, WY in 1980. In addition to an associate of science degree in dental hygiene, she has a bachelors of science degree in education for health occupations, and a master of arts degree in adult and continuing education from University of Nebraska.
Before joining Jeff in his private practice in 1994 she practiced dental hygiene in several private dental offices. She was the director of Sheridan College Dental Hygiene program, taught dental hygiene, dental assisting and was an assistant professor in the periodontics department at Creighton Dental School.
More than 80% of all adults have some form of periodontal disease, a disease that affects the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. Many people are unaware that they have this disease because there are so few symptoms associated with it. It is critical that all adults have a thorough evaluation of the gums and bone that support their teeth. Early diagnosis, as with most diseases, provides the best possible outcome.
Phyllis is committed to helping her patients achieve periodontal health. She has found that once patients understand periodontal disease – what it is, what causes it, how it is related to overall health and the treatment options available – patients also become committed to achieving periodontal health.
