As a child growing up in Concord, Dr. Jeffrey A. Fink loved to work with his hands. He also enjoyed drawing. When a family friend who was a dentist allowed Dr. Fink to shadow him one day, he immediately saw how his eye-hand coordination could benefit him in this field, and knew dentistry was something he would enjoy.
Dr. Fink graduated from Wake Forest University in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in biology. He went on to Emory University School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1987.
Dr. Fink’s roots run deep in this part of North Carolina. His mother was from Mount Pleasant, and his father is from China Grove. This area was where he wanted to return after college to set up his practice. He viewed it as an opportunity to give back to his community.
Since then, he has built a reputation for providing high quality general dental care for children and adults. Some of the most frequent compliments he hears from patients are that their treatments don’t hurt, and they feel as though Dr. Fink pays attention to their needs.
He and his wife Linda married in April 1995 and have two daughters. When he isn’t improving smiles, Dr. Fink enjoys the outdoors and specifically, birdwatching. He is a member of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. He helped start the Concord Wildlife Alliance, an organization that works to preserve the wildlife in this area.
Dr. Fink also is heavily involved in the Special Olympics. His youngest daughter has Down Syndrome, and when he began attending events with her, he saw the key role the organization played in families’ lives. Today he serves on the Steering Committee for Cabarrus County, which plans athletic events, as well as parties for the athletes to celebrate the end of each season.
