Dr. Jake Hamby
Dr. Hamby grew up in the small town of Picher, Oklahoma with his parents and six siblings. He was an inquisitive child who loved science, math, and solving problems, which led him to his first career as a Plastics Engineer. He worked in the engineering field for 12 years before deciding he wanted a more “hands-on” career. After shadowing a dentist during a mission trip to Brazil, he knew dentistry was the field he wanted to pursue, and hasn’t looked back since! He received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at A.T. Still University before relocating to the Springfield area to join our practice in 2020.
Dr. Hamby performs all types of family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry, and specializes in root canal treatment and implants. Dr. Hamby enjoys the science behind dental restorations, and his engineering background enables him to approach dentistry with an excellent technical mind. He is also fulfilled by interacting with his patients and helping them reach their ideal smile results, whether through tooth replacement options like implants and crown restorations, or by helping his patients find relief from tooth pain or infection. Dr. Hamby’s passion for dentistry and warm yet meticulous nature make him an outstanding provider within our practice!
Outside the office, Dr. Hamby enjoys staying active through activities like golfing, curling, hunting, fishing, camping, and working out. He also plays drums and guitar and has enjoyed playing music with the worship team at his church. Dr. Hamby is married with 3 kids and 6 grandkids and loves spending time with his growing family.
