  • Jeffrey Hempel, DDS

    Jeffrey was born in Seattle, Washington. He still has family living there. His father had a full career practicing dentistry until he passed away from a stroke.

    Jeffrey moved to Loma Linda, CA in grade school while his father attended dental school. After graduation his father became the first dentist in Newbury Park, CA in 1964, where he moved his family. Jeffrey graduated high school in Newbury Park and moved to Napa to attend Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA. Jeffrey graduated with a BS in Biology and also graduated as a pilot from the flight school in Angwin. He has owned planes throughout the years and maintains a passion for flying. He enjoys cars and driving as well.

    Jeffrey then followed his father’s footsteps and moved back to Loma Linda to attend dental school. After graduation Jeffrey practiced a short time with his father before starting his own dental practice in Southern California.

    Jeffrey has been married for nearly three decades to his high school sweetheart, Cheryl. Together they have 3 children, Jackie, Brock and Dane.

    After living the busy Southern California life they relocated to Napa a few years ago to slow their living pace down. Jeffrey continues to enjoy a passion for dentistry and feels much rewarded by what he can do for his patients.

    We at Silverado Dental Care are happy to have him on our team!

Our Happy Customers

"I took my daughter (2 1/2) for her first cleaning and she had a blast!! Talked about it all the way home!! We love Silverado dental care!!"


"My husband and I have been going here for years. Not only is everyone amazing but they truly care about your well being before, during and after procedures. God bless ANY dentist that will answer his own phone on a weekend. Dr. Ringard just helped me at 10am on a Saturday morning. I'd recommend them to anyone!"


"I have been searching and searching for the perfect dentist office. It is much like trying to find a decent boyfriend. At first they are sweet are lure you in, but then all of a sudden they turn on you and you can't trust them anymore. Well...Silverado Dental Care is like the prince charming of dental care in Napa.
The team here is so wonderful and warm, from the moment I walked into the office I fell in love. I highly recommend Silverado Dental Care, and will never leave their trusting side.
They fixed a cracked veneer, cleaned, and polished my pearly whites all while I sit comfortably in a tempur-pedic chair watching Planet Earth.
Much like the rest of the population, I do not like going to the dentist; but do not fear!! Silverado Dental Care is here!"

We're here to help you get the perfect smile!
