Meet Dr. Jeffrey Dixon
I feel honored to be an orthodontist. Obtaining this specialized skill and implementing those skills to make lasting positive changes in someone’s life is rewarding and unique. Meeting so many people across varying degrees of cultures and situations makes me grateful for what I have and what I am able to do for others in this great specialty.
Helping patients become less self-conscious when smiling and more confident overall is so exciting! Watching patients progress through treatment and finally achieving the smile they have always wanted is what I love the most.
I graduated from SUNY Buffalo Physical Therapy Program in 1992 with a BS degree, Cum Laude, and practiced for four years. Then, from SUNY Buffalo Dental School in 2000, I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, (DDS) and graduated Magna Cum Laude. After dental school, I completed a three-year Post-Doctoral residency in Orthodontics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I received my Post-Doctoral Certificate in Orthodontics and an additional Master’s Degree. I also served as a component president and trustee of a state dental society for two years.
Continuing education is very important to me and I am actively involved in it through my attendance at multiple regional and national orthodontic educational meetings every year. I have completed the Invisalign® Master Series course, attend the Dawson Academy, and regularly attend CE courses through the ADA and the AAO. Keeping up with the latest technology and methods for creating beautiful functional smiles ensures we are delivering the best possible care.
I am a native of Vestal, NY and now live in Granby, CT. My wife Amy of 22 years is from Westfield, MA. She has a Master’s degree in Elementary Education but stays home and takes care of everyone else. My oldest daughter Ashlyn is a junior in high school and loves basketball and fishing. My youngest Evelyn is in the eighth grade and loves basketball and gymnastics. Our dog Lila is eight and loves taking trips in the car!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, hiking, and volunteering as a coach for soccer and basketball.
Meet Dr. Megan Alexander
Orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth, it’s about enhancing a person’s life by improving their self-esteem and their confidence. I am committed to providing patient-centered quality orthodontic care in a fun and comfortable environment for children and adults. I am passionate about working one-on-one with my patients to create their ideal smile, all while building long-lasting relationships.
My passion for dentistry and orthodontics began while I was an orthodontic patient myself! I love working with my hands and expressing my artistic side. I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from McGill University where I received several awards for academic achievement. After completing a residency in general dentistry at the University of Connecticut, I went on to pursue specialty training in orthodontics at the University of Rochester.
Learning is a lifelong journey and participation in continuing education keeps me current with the latest technologies, methods, and treatments. I regularly attend continuing education courses at a local, national, and international level. I am also an active member of several dental and orthodontic societies and study groups.
Originally from Canada, I am proud to call Connecticut my home along with my husband, our three children, and our dog. Outside of the dental office, I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, and being outdoors.
By providing warm, friendly patient care, my goal is to make orthodontic treatment a positive experience for all of my patients. After more than ten years of practicing orthodontics in both private orthodontic and multi-specialty practices, I am excited to be a part of the team at Dixon Orthodontics!
