Dr. Ann Merrick Jeffers
Dr. Ann Jeffers attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, where she majored in biology. She then attended the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (formerly the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey) for her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree (DMD), graduating in 1991. Dr. Jeffers continues her dental education annually, focusing on endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and implant restorations in her continuing education courses. In 2010, she received advanced training at the Zimmer Institute in the fabrication of implant-supported dentures.
She has been practicing in the South Jersey area since 2008 and in Cumberland County since 2010. As a dentist, Dr. Jeffers’s goal is to maintain or restore her patient’s smiles and their good oral health, help them feel comfortable in the dental chair, and to restore their confidence in themselves and in dentistry.
Dr. Jeffers is a member of the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, and the Atlantic-Cape May County Dental Society. She has received several awards, including the award for “Excellence in Pediatric Dentistry” from the American Society of Dentistry for Children (which she received as a senior in dental school). She was inducted into the honor society of Omicron Kappa Upsilon as a senior dental student and is a 26-year member of Sigma Xi, the scientific research organization for medicine and dentistry.
Dr. Jeffers enjoys spending vacation time and holidays with her husband, children, and grandchildren. She especially loves boating, the beach, and boardwalk time with her grandchildren. Knitting, embroidery, and reading are life-long hobbies, and she plans on restarting her hobbies of yoga and kayaking, as well as trying out beading and paddle boarding. Dr. Jeffers has 3 Yorkshire Terrier mix dogs that she loves to pamper. She is a North Jersey transplant, having grown up in Chester in Morris County, home of Larison’s Turkey Farm and the Lion’s Club Flea Market. Like most Jersey girls, Dr. Jeffers and her daughter love to shop!
