Jeffrey A. Neal, DDS
Born in Portland, Maine, Dr. Jeffrey A. Neal moved to Virginia at the age of 1 and was raised in the rural town of Nokesville, Virginia. He excelled during his high school years and graduated valedictorian of his class. Dr. Neal was voted “most likely to succeed,” which he strives to achieve in everything he does. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the College of William and Mary in 1993. However, his passion for learning did not stop there, and he went on to study dentistry at the Medical College of Virginia (MCV) School of Dentistry. During his time there, he was able to go to Israel to study and teach dentistry there. He regards this as one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences of his life. Dr. Neal graduated in 1997 with the honor of receiving the Society of Dentistry for Children Award. While studying at MCV, he fell in love with the life and color of Richmond, Virginia, and decided to open his practice in the West-End suburb of Short Pump.
At present, Dr. Neal offers a wide range of general dental services, and unlike most general dental offices, he personally provides orthodontics, treatments for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and now sleep apnea medicine. Devoted to continued learning, Dr. Neal strives to be the best he can be with all of the current technology. Almost every year, Dr. Neal completes over 200 hours of continuing education courses to provide superior treatment for his patients. He finished three postgraduate residency programs in TMJ disorders, orthodontics and dental sleep medicine. Dr. Neal feels that to be a great general dentist, you MUST be well rounded and up to date on the latest scientific research and treatment modalities.
He chose the name “Who Does Your Teeth” for his practice because he believes in valuing his patients on a personal level, ensuring it does matter “Who Does YOUR Teeth.” Whether he sees his patients in the office or out running errands, his patients can be sure he will stop and ask about family members by name. He always finds it easy to remember the littlest details because his patients’ lives are important to him, and he always wants to ensure his patient “family” is doing well.
Dr. Neal is a member of the American Dental Association®, the Virginia Dental Association and the Richmond Dental Society. He is also part of a larger worldwide dental society called the International Association of Orthodontics™. There he works with colleagues on a global level to advance the science of orthodontics.

She loves the soothing, educational and care-centric atmosphere Dr. Jeffrey Neal and the team provide.

She has a strong belief in better health through preventive care and education.

Jordyn Fodill – Dental Assistant
Jordyn was first introduced to Dr. Jeffrey Neal and his team as an intern with the ECPI Dental Assisting Program in September of 2020. She found that she enjoyed the variety of services Dr. Neal’s extensive training allows him to offer his patients and officially became a Who Does Your Teeth team member in November of 2020.
Once she graduated from Atlee High School, she originally planned to pursue a career in dental hygiene, but while attending her second year at ODU, she realized that, though she was fascinated with the dental health world, the hygiene side was not the path she truly wanted to follow. She returned home to Mechanicsville and worked at Kreggers Tap and Table in Ashland, where she had been employed for six years as a manager & bartender. She continued to look for a career path in the dental world that suited her and found the ECPI University Dental Assisting program and discovered that assisting was the career she was meant to be in.
Jordyn enjoys spending time with her large family, often vacationing with her entire family to the Outer Banks and Sandbridge in the summertime and the mountains during the winter. In her off time, she spends time with her two cats, Tito and Skyy.
Hannah Bayless – Dental Assistant
Hannah joined Dr. and the Who Does Your Teeth team in April 2022 but was first introduced to Dr. in January of 2022 when she was chosen to intern with the Who Does Your Teeth team as part of her ECPI University dental assisting curriculum. Hannah knew from the beginning of her internship that the warm, welcoming atmosphere that Dr. created in his practice was one she wanted to be a part of.
Hannah has been fascinated with dental health care since she was very young. She loved going to see her dental professionals and learning about teeth and proper oral health care. In her senior year, she began researching options for her career in dental health and discovered ECPI University’s dental assisting program and promptly applied. She was accepted, and once she graduated high school in 2019, she was able to start at ECPI immediately. Her only concern was finding an office that shared her passion for oral health and offered a feeling of comfort for both patients and staff alike, so she was thrilled when the first office she worked in was such a good fit.
When not working, her favorite way to unwind is spending time with her dog, Marley, and shopping with her mom. She is a long-time dancer and enjoys helping out at the studio she trained in when she was younger. She also keeps the tradition of a regular Friday “game night” with her friends.
