Jeff Torghele, DMD

Dr. Jeff is an Ogden, Utah native – growing up here and following in his father’s footsteps as a family practice dentist. He attended Weber State University, where he received his undergraduate degree in Zoology with a minor in Chemistry. In 2004, he completed his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the Case School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. He joined his father at his Ogden office, who then retired a couple of years later.

With more than 14 years of experience, Dr. Jeff is committed to providing comprehensive care to the families who have entrusted their smiles to the Torghele family for over 42 years. His zeal for patient care is evident from his warm chair side manner and his conscientious treatment of each visitor to our practice – many of whom are lifelong patients.

His professional affiliations include the Weber County Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the Utah Dental Association. He is also a certified Invisalign dentist, providing orthodontics for adults and teens right here in our practice.

Away From Work

Jeff and his wife have a charming daughter, McKynlee, with whom they love to spend time outdoors at the beautiful Bear Lake.

When he isn’t busy hunting or fishing, Dr. Jeff also enjoys 4-wheeling or snowmobiling.

Office Traditions

In memory of Dr. Torghele’s son, Ty Jeffrey Torghele, we purchase a tree from Festival of Trees (A local fundraiser that benefits the children who are cared for at Primary Children's Hospital). The following year, that tree is then available to the highest bidder from our immediate community. All the money raised from auctioning the tree is donated again to Primary Children’s Hospital.

We are so grateful for those that care for the children at Primary Children’s Hospital, and for those that help keep this tradition going.
