For Dr. Just, orthodontics was a natural career choice. He practiced with his father, Dr.Harold Just, who practiced with his father Dr. William Just, right here on the lakeshore. The Just’s have been creating beautiful smiles on the lakeshore since 1919.
In 1984, Dr. Jeff Just earned his Bachelor’s degree in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry (just like his grandfather) from which he received his Dental Degree in 1988. To be an orthodontist requires two additional years of training, which Dr. Just completed at the Northwestern Dental School in 1990.
Dr. Just is a founding board member Healthy Teeth Healthy Communities of Manitowoc County; a charter member of the Manitowoc Sunrise Rotary Club and an Eagle Scout. Professionally he is a member of the American Wisconsin Dental Association, Wisconsin Society of Orthodontists, the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Progressive Orthodontist Study Club, the Pragmatic Study Club and the Orthodontic Exchange Study Club. Dr. Just is a past president of the Manitowoc Calumet County Dental Society and is a Certified Damon Educator. Just Orthodontics won the Small Business of the Year Award from the Manitowoc County Chamber of Commerce in 2013 and selected as Best Orthodontist in both Manitowoc and Sheboygan.
“I enjoy anything that keeps me outdoors in nature and that’s something that hasn’t changed since I was a little kid.” – Dr. Just
On a personal note: Jeff has been married to his wife Sue for over 25 years and they have three sons; Braden, Ethan and Owen who occupy most of their free time. If Jeff hadn’t became an orthodontist he probably would be a tree forester. He has planted over 90,000 trees during the past 20 years as he continually develops his forest.
