TW Orthodontics wants you to meet the team! We sat down with Dr. Jeffrey Shelley and asked him some questions to get to know him better. Check out his interview below!

 

Q: How would you spend an ideal day off with no financial limits?  

A: I would definitely take a private jet over to Scotland for some golf. I haven’t done that yet, and I’m pretty much a golf nerd these days so it’s on the list. 

 

Q: What gets you up in the morning? 

A: 7 am is wake up time for the baby, so if I want to get any exercise time in I know the alarm needs to go off at 5:30 am. Basically a guilty conscience wakes me up in the morning! 

 

Q: Did you have braces growing up? If yes, how old were you and what did you dislike the most? 

A: I did have braces, twice. I had a Phase I treatment around 8 years old for some very nice buck teeth. Shout out to Mom and Dad for fixing those. I then had full treatment was at 14 years old. I don’t remember much other than seeing the finished product the day I got them off and being extremely happy. 

 

Q: What is your favorite hobby and why?

A: I’d say a balance of golf and any form of exercise. Cycling and running are two things I really enjoy because they give me a chance to have some peace and quiet, and they allow me to prepare for the day or unwind from it.

 

Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? 

A: Without a doubt, southern France. Great food, culture, and in my opinion, the most beautiful country in the world. 

 

Q: Do you have children/pets? If so, what do they do that make you smile? 

A: We have a 16 month old boy named Trip. I love seeing his mind work on things. Whether it’s trying to open a jar or completely unload every cabinet in the kitchen, you can see the wheels turning and it makes us happy. 

 

Q: What is your favorite part of your job any why?  

A: The best part of my job is making people feel better about themselves. People usually are here because they chose to seek treatment for something they didn’t like about their smile. It’s gratifying to help them make that change. 

 

Q: If you had to pick one song to be your life theme song or “walk out song” what would it be? 

A: It’s 5 O’ Clock Somewhere”, by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. No not really… 😉 The Eagles were the first band my parents introduced me to.  I’ll go with “Take it Easy”

 

Q: What is your favorite local restaurant or place to go?  

A: The local pizza joint with the family. It’s fun, casual, and my son can destroy our booth without us feeling too bad. We tip appropriately for that.
