About Dr. Just

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.
