Meet the Doctors

Jeffery C. Chantry, DDS

Dr. Jeffery Chantry opened our practice in 1994 as an office where the whole family could receive top-quality dentistry in a friendly and caring environment. He also wanted to provide his patients with leading- edge, start-to-finish solutions for all their dental needs. He has trained extensively in a comprehensive array of advanced procedures so he can effectively handle most any dental concern in the comfort of our office.

He provides expert restorative and cosmetic dentistry, including the replacement of missing teeth with dental implants. He also provides minimally invasive laser gum disease treatment and cosmetic gum treatment. He is certified in both cutting-edge orthodontics using braces, and Invisalign® teeth straightening using clear aligners. Dr. Chantry can use any combination of these and other procedures to restore your smile to full health, function and beauty.

Dr. Chantry loves being a dentist because he is able to build long-term relationships with people and make a positive impact on their lives. “I enjoy the times that I know I have made a difference, either with a cosmetic solution or by relieving another’s pain.”

Patients frequently express their confidence in his professionalism and like his friendly and easy-going manner. They comment about how easy it is to talk to him, and how he puts them at ease when he explains what is going to be done during their treatment.


Dr. Chantry received his Bachelor of Science degree at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. He then continued onto formal dental training at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, where he graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery.

Since earning his dental degree, he has maintained a rigorous schedule of continuing education to remain up-to-date and master new technologies and procedures so they can be implemented in the practice. In this way, Dr. Chantry is able to provide truly comprehensive care at the highest standards.

Advanced training certifications

Dr. Chantry has earned certificates in orthodontics and orthopedics from the United States Dental Institute. He is also certified in Invisalign® clear teeth straightening. He has been fully trained in the use of advanced dental lasers for gum disease treatment and cosmetic gum treatment, and is one of the few dentists in the United States certified to deliver the minimally invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique for gum recession.

He has also trained extensively in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures, and is highly proficient in the use of CAD/CAM technology for same-day, in-office fabrication and placement of dental restorations. For dental implant treatment, Dr. Chantry has completed a mini-residency with a top-flight implant surgeon and has taken numerous other continuing education courses in implantology in order to keep current with the latest techniques.

Veronica M. Alvarado, DDS

Dr. Veronica Alvarado entered dentistry because she felt a calling to help people, and she feels that one of the most rewarding aspects of her work is being able to help others feel good about their appearance. “When a person is happy with their appearance, they feel good overall”, she says. “I like playing a role in giving patients that confidence.”

Dr. Alvarado is both a general dentist and a prosthodontist, a recognized dental specialist in the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. She provides high-quality general and cosmetic dental services for all members of the family, including crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures and treatments for children.

Dr. Alvarado really cares for her patients and works to make them feel comfortable from the moment they first walk in the door. She makes it a point to get into good communication with her patients so they can understand what is happening, allowing them to relax and have a positive experience at the dentist.


Dr. Alvarado earned both her Bachelor of Science Degree and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). She then went on to complete a full specialist residency in West Los Angeles and graduated as a prosthodontist. Dr. Alvarado has applied her skills for the Veterans Administration in addition to treating patients in private practice.
