Dr. Jeff Summers

Compassionate. Kind. Honest. Fun. Trustworthy. Patient. Detailed. Driven.

These are just a few words patients use to describe Dr. Jeff Summers.

Originally from Anchorage, AK and a one-time Olympic hopeful in ice hockey, Dr. Summers is driven in the pursuit of fulfilling our mission to deliver unparalleled customer service in a friendly environment while providing the highest level of personalized orthodontic treatment to obtain exceptional results. Every step of his training, from Clemson University to the Medical University of SC, to the Medical College of GA has been in preparation to build an amazing orthodontic practice for all patients. Few others continue their pursuit as Dr. Summers to remain on the forefront of technology and advancements in orthodontics. He remains a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for the orthodontic industry and a member of exclusive, prestigious groups via invitation only such as the Schulman Group and the Ormco Insiders. These distinctions are shared by approximately 100 members each worldwide, three of which are in SC, but no others in Greenville. These allow Dr. Summers to work alongside the brightest minds in the world and bring that education and technology home to the Upstate. Dr. Summers does Beta testing and FDA-approval documentation for the latest advancements and has been amongst the first in the world to introduce this technology to his patients. As such, he is sought-out lecturer and educator as a Damon System Champion. Dr. Summers is a member of all the local and regional dental and orthodontic societies and is a Fellow of the World Federation of Orthodontists.

Even back in high school, Dr. Cass knew that she wanted to be an orthodontist one day.

Dr. Cass - Education & Credentials

In search of a big southern school for the next part of her journey, she attended the University of South Carolina, where she studied finance and graduated Summa Cum Laude and with Honors from the South Carolina Honors College. From there she moved to “The Big Apple” to attend Columbia University in New York City for her dental training. She then moved back down south to North Carolina to attend the world-renowned Department of Orthodontics at the UNC School of Dentistry, where she earned her Masters in Oral Biology and was recognized as the Greg and Andrew Brooks Fellow.

Dr. Cass has received numerous awards over the years that include the Ella Marie Ewell Award and Holden Award for leadership, and others at Columbia University. While at Columbia she was published for her research on fibrocartilage in the temporomandibular joint and her latest research at UNC studying therapy dogs in orthodontics has been funded by the American Association of Orthodontics Foundation.

Dr. Cass - Family

Outside the office Dr. Cass enjoys spending time with her soon-to-be husband, James and their dog, Farley. They love camping, hiking, fishing, as well as a good pickleball match. Dr. Cass also volunteers with Farley as a therapy dog team.
