Meet Dr. Jeffrey Loftin

Being a dentist is more than fixing teeth; each patient and every procedure is an opportunity to strengthen connections and to help that person lead a fuller, happier, and healthier life.

I have been practicing for more than 30 years and love what I do with my days. It’s fulfilling to work with my hands and in partnership with each patient, as we craft and achieve beautifully healthy and stable smiles.

Sometimes the dental treatment I offer can be life-changing, and relieve years of headaches and pain, or restore function and help someone smile for the first time in years.

Other times it’s a simpler process, but it’s no less important: each interaction I have is a chance to touch that person’s life, as I listen to them, offer guidance, and show that I genuinely care about who they are, beyond their teeth.

Since completing dental school, I have actively sought out continuing education opportunities locally, regionally, and nationally.

I am a member of several study clubs, as well as professional organizations, and regularly attend meetings, lectures, and seminars. I have also completed courses through the Pankey Institute and Dawson Academy.

Continuing education ensures I provide patients with the most modern dentistry, as well as ensure treatment is efficient, affordable, comfortable, and delivers lasting results.

Beyond the Office

I grew up in Asheville and am proud to call this town my home. I have two daughters, now grown and enjoying life on their own.  I enjoy tennis and travel, and scuba diving.

As an active volunteer with the Missions of Mercy dental clinics, I also offer dental care to the underprivileged in our area.
