Dr. Higgins transplanted from Duluth, Minnesota to Springfield, Missouri when he was 12 years old. After graduating from high school, he went on to receive his Associates Degree of Applied Science in Computer Information Technology. Jeff spent his late teens and early twenties working in the Information Technology field for several companies in the Springfield area, creating and maintaining networks for dental labs and offices, law firms, manufacturers and other corporations to support himself during college. In 2004, Jeff graduated with his undergraduate degree in Cell and Molecular Biology and began dental school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City
Dr. Higgins was the president of his dental class all four years of his doctoral studies. After completing his Doctorate in Dental Surgery in 2008, he bought a dental practice from a doctor in Lathrop, Missouri and began practicing family dentistry in the rural community. Although Jeff loved the country and appreciated spending time with his patients there, he decided that he wanted to be a bit further south, and when the opportunity to buy the Olathe Dental Care Center
from Dr. Leins came up, he jumped at it. Joining the family dentistry practice in October of 2011, Dr. Higgins counts himself very fortunate to work with his phenomenal staff and patients!
