Dr. Ron Jessup

IMG 1266Dr. Jessup is a life-long Virginian, born in Radford Virginia to a family of three boys. His dad was a career Virginia State policeman and his mom, a school teacher. He spent much of his youth in Wythe and Chesterfield Counties, eventually settling in Swift Creek. Dr. Jessup graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors of Science in chemistry. He then entered the School of Dentistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He began his dental career in the Richmond area, opening his first practice in Henrico.

Today, he is excited to be part of the Midlothian Village area closer to his Swift Creek home. Dr. Jessup has been married for 38 years, has two children, and five grandchildren all living five minutes from his home. He is very involved in his church, and has done mission work in orphanages throughout Russia for many years. He enjoys reading, biking, traveling, boating, playing with his two dogs but most of all spending time with his grandkids.

Dr. Jessup knew he wanted to help others through a career in dentistry. It was always his answer when he was asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" and nothing stood in his way of meeting that dream. Today, the dental profession has allowed Dr. Jessup the ability to serve his patients through building trusting relationships and helping people from age 2 to 99 to better their dental health, image, and confidence.

Cindy went back to school in her 30's and obtained her BS in dental hygiene at VCU along with her oldest daughter. Now that Cindy's children are grown, Cindy is working on an ever growing bucket list as she enjoys traveling, preferably anywhere that is warm. Cindy recently learned how to golf and would love to learn to ride horses. After having worked many years with Dr. Leary, who retired two years ago from this practice, Cindy is still seeing Dr. Leary's former patients who she adores and is enjoying getting to know Dr. Jessup's patients along with many new faces to the practice. Cindy loves that the practice is small and personal... and after working at many different practices, with many different professionals, she feels that Dr. Jessup's practice is where she belongs.
