Dr. Jeremy Haines
Dr. Haines grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. In his youth with his six younger siblings, he enjoyed most everything the Alaskan frontier had to offer. He and his family loved to hike, ski, camp, bike and explore. He loved spending time in the mountains. He loved spending time with his family. Aside from the great outdoors, he pursued and excelled at many indoor hobbies as well. He found it most memorable to have been in jazz band and the all-state choir and to have competed in the state tennis championship. He also somehow managed to find time to keep his grades worthy of acceptance (and a scholarship) to Brigham Young University.
During his orthodontic residency, Dr. Haines met the woman of his dreams who happened to already have four wonderful children of her own. They were married in 2015, and now have two boys together which brought the grand total to six! Dr. Haines and his wife love big families, community involvement, the great outdoors, singing together, DIY house projects and eating sushi (or chocolate cake) whenever possible. Due to their shared weakness for delicious food, they have a compensatory strength for oral hygiene, which includes flossing daily… most of the time.
Although Dr. Haines seriously considered mechanical engineering, physics and even chemical engineering, he eventually graduated magna cum laude with a degree from the Marriott School of Business. During the earlier portion of his college career, he took two years to serve a mission in Japan for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the latter portion of his college career he was lucky enough to be a part of a men’s acapella performing group called Vocal Point. They traveled the country performing and won the International Championship of Collegiate Acapella in 2006. The group even went on to appear in NBC’s “The Sing Off.” Dr. Haines loves to sing.
For graduate studies Dr. Haines attended Loma Linda University Dental school in Southern California. He was elected president of the school chapter of the American Student Dental Association. He also served as one of two student members on the academic review committee during the four years he was in school. He graduated with numerous awards, among which was special recognition for his competency in oral biology and maxillo-facial pathology. He was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society, an honor bestowed upon only the top 5% of dental students.
Following his dental degree, he went on to gain expertise in orthodontics by attending an orthodontic residency, also at Loma Linda University. He finally graduated in 2016 after 24 and a half years of school. In other words, Dr. Haines worked long and hard to be really good at what he does so he can give the best possible care to his patients.
