Jeff Prais, DDS
Dr. Jeff Prais is a native of Southern California and grew up right here in Southwest Riverside County in Temecula. After graduating from Temecula Valley High, he spent the next eight years in the Bay Area completing his education.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in Integrative Biology from the University of California at Berkeley and his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) in 2005. After graduation, Dr. Prais decided to return to his hometown.
Dr. Prais is dedicated to giving back to his hometown and enjoys the many challenges that dentistry provides. Whether it is helping an anxious patient overcome their dental anxiety with care and compassion or helping to restore a long-lost smile, dentistry is full of many rewards.
“Dentistry is a wonderful profession” says Dr. Prais. “I enjoy coming to work each morning, meeting new people and seeing old friends, and working together with patients and our dental team to improve smiles and oral health.”
When away from the office, Dr. Prais enjoys spending time with his wife and their two daughters. He loves the outdoors and can frequently be found on his mountain bike enjoying the local trails.
