About Jeffrey E. Calhoun Family Dentistry

Dentist Office in Lompoc, CA

Dr. Calhoun received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 1975. Following dental school, he specialized in Oral Pathology at the Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center (Oral Pathology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, including cancer, that occur in and around the oral cavity). After his specialty training, Dr. Calhoun spent three years as an Assistant Professor at the USC School of Dentistry.

In 1981, he and his wife Gloria moved to Lompoc to begin their general dental practice. The first office was small, and it soon became apparent that it would be necessary to move into a larger space. That opportunity came in late 1983 when the Mission Professional Building was constructed, conveniently located one block from the Lompoc District Hospital.

Dr. Calhoun and his staff are proud to offer a relaxed, casual environment where you can feel comfortable, all while maintaining a high level of professionalism. Our current patients have become like family to all of us. Carrie, our office manager, has been an integral part of our team for the past 20+ years. She is an expert on all dental insurance plans and works very hard to make sure our patients receive the dental insurance benefits they pay for. Dr. Calhoun is fortunate to have Lori and Kara as his right arm Registered Dental Assistants. Lori has been with our office for over 15 years and Kara was our intern last year and we couldn’t let her go. She was offered a permanent position before her internship had ended. She is also our IT girl.

Our hygiene department is loaded with experience. Alicia has been with Dr. Calhoun for over 20 years. Karen came to us when Dr. Thiel retired and has over 20 years in clinical hygiene. Kayla, our newest hygienist has many years of dental office experience. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge. Gloria has been with Dr. Calhoun since the beginning. Besides working as a hygienist, she has been tasked to make sure the office and the hygiene department run smoothly. Tami is our part-time patient coordinator. Tami retired from another office and comes in weekly to help us with patient care.
