Meet Dr. Jeff Elenberger

A Love for My Profession

As an orthodontist, I love the positive impact I make on someone’s life while helping him or her smile with confidence. Seeing a shy patient, whether the person is a child, teen, or adult, who is self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth at the first exam, and then seeing the transformation in their confidence after our work is complete, is highly rewarding to my team and me. When someone is ashamed to smile, they tend to be less comfortable in social situations; people keep their head down and do not interact with others. When I straighten those teeth and develop that beautiful smile, the individual’s life changes: they walk with their head held high, they make eye contact and start conversations, and, best of all, they smile and laugh openly and happily.

My patients are incredible, and in the 25 years I’ve been a practicing orthodontist, I have had the honor to meet and care for amazing people. I love hearing about their lives, their activities, hobbies, interests, pets, families, and everything else. They keep me constantly learning, motivated, and energized. I love coming to work every day because of those interactions. I smile because of my patients.

Outside the Practice

I was born in Rapid City, South Dakota and might just be the only person you’ll ever meet from South Dakota, “we don’t travel much you know.” My family heritage is made up of hard-working farmers and ranchers. So, I was born to work and that’s what you will get from Elenberger Orthodontics. My parents did eventually load up the old station wagon and headed West to California.

I’ve called Sacramento my home for more than 25+ years, after growing up in Petaluma, CA. My wife Lisa (a Children’s Dentist, we met in Dental School) and I have two sons and a daughter. Our home is also shared with a dog named Coco, whose name is a nod to my wife’s hometown of Hershey, PA (Chocolate Town USA). My family is my highest priority when it comes to free time, and I enjoy watching the kids play sports. I also like surfing, golfing, and playing tennis. I love good food and consider myself a master of the barbecue. Ribs galore.

* A fun note, Dr. Elenberger’s nephew is a Reese and his great-grandmother invented what? Who doesn’t like chocolate and peanut butter?

Answer: Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

In the Community

I’ve been a youth football and basketball coach for several years and was the official videographer of my son’s high school football games, too. I enjoy speaking to students at various schools regarding career development and goal setting. I also serve as an alumni interviewer for the admissions department at Georgetown University.

My practice has supported our community through sponsorships and donations to local teams and clubs. We have provided pro bono orthodontic care to families in need through the Sacramento Smile for Kids program.

I am a recently retired General Dentist who practiced over four decades. I referred my 3 children to Dr. Elenberger for Orthodontic treatment because I have always appreciated his conservative treatment philosophy. Dr. Elenberger only initiates treatment when there is a definite need, many times recommending a “wait and see how the upper and lower jaws develop” approach. I referred many patients to Dr. Elenberger and they always were pleased and gave me good reports about his chairside manner and explanations. I heartily recommend seeking him out for your Orthodontic needs!
