Jeffery Robert Damon


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jeffery Robert Damon at his home in Weston, MA on March 27th, 2020, surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with adrenal cancer. He was born September 1, 1977 to Kent and Elaine Damon in Manchester, CT where he grew up and graduated from Manchester High School in 1995. He attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute, graduating in 1999 with a degree in biochemistry. He conducted cancer research at UMass Medical School and worked at a genetic research company for several years before deciding to pursue dentistry. He attended Tufts Dental School where he earned his DMD degree (2009) and his specialty training in Prosthodontics (2012).

He was greatly admired by his patients and peers for his skills as a dentist and ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease. He was loved by so many for his caring, welcoming personality. He was passionate about his many interests, including music, exotic cars, aquarium reef care, sports, and of course spending time with his friends and family. He was a wonderful husband, father, son and friend.

He leaves his loving wife Heather and his son Charlie (7), his parents, his brother Jonathan (partner Katie), nephew Evan (13), niece Avery (11), numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many wonderful friends. We will miss him always. A celebration of his life will be held in the coming months.

Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    I am so sorry to know that Dr. Damon has passed away. I was a patient of his for several years at Dental Services

    He would always have a smile, and ask me how my kids were doing, while I had cotton balls, and drill in my mouth. I really tried to talk to him while he was doing my procedure !! He would laugh.

    He would show me pictures, and videos on his phone..of his son Charlie..and his face would light up like a Christmas tree. Dr. Damon would also brag about his wife’s delicious home cooked bread that took many hours to make for Thanksgiving.

    I will truly miss his encouraging words to my college son Jason, who was also a patient.

    Such a sweet and kind person, to be around.

    I will miss seeing you at Dental Services. Terri Pladziewicz

    to the Damon family, please accept my deepest condolences. I was a patient. He was lovely inside and out. I told him that I didn’t like perfect teeth and he said, “neither do I!” I respected him tremendously and I hope that all these tributes are some consolation to you in your hour of need. geraldine mcgowan

    Well it has been two months …. and it has taken me this long to write this. This is not a condolence as much as it is an I miss you. In your own weird little brother way you left a huge impression on me. I know, I did kind of make it hard for you at times … remember when Nana Jeane wanted to kill me … but look at who you became, look at your family, look at your life. I know I didn’t (if ever) say this enough, but I love you for who you are. You are an inspirational, talented and upbeat young man who was taken much to soon. There isn’t a day that I don’t think about the picture of you in the cowboy hat with the goofy look in Kemosabes or the family picture of you guys before we went up to the Glenwood Caves or the time you shot over 100 photos of stuff in my yard because you were practicing for dental school, I still have all those pictures by the way. I will and do miss you, but in the same token I hope you are entertaining a whole different group! Stay frosty my friend!

    A recent visit to Dental Services left me with incredible sadness at being informed of the passing of Dr. Damon. I have been Jeff’s patient for the past ten years and I would always look forward to chatting about cars, vacations and whatever else was going on in his or my life at the time. I know my periodontal needs sometimes tested his skills; but he always kept his sense of humor and lightheartedness. I last saw Jeff earlier this year and I know he was experiencing health issues, but he never let them affect his chair side manner or his craft. I will truly miss him.



  105. Amanda Jett LeBlanc on June 3, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    My deepest condolences to Dr. Damon’s family. I am very sad to have learned of his passing. I was a patient of his at Dental Services and honestly always disliked dentist visits… until I ended up in Dr. Damon’s chair. His upbeat attitude and great conversation always made my visits a pleasure and something to almost look forward to (and there were MANY over the last several years). I was always amazed at how much he remembered of our last conversation. So fun to always chat football and family. He will most certainly be missed. Very sorry for your loss.

    Amanda



  106. Linda Karam on June 3, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    My deepest sympathies to Dr. Jeff’s family. What a sweet man and gentle doctor. I liked him very much, and of course am stunned by his death. May you find comfort in each other and in fond memories.



  107. Linda A Turner on June 23, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Rest in peace Dr. Damon. I was a patient of his at Dental Services and am deeply saddened to learn of his passing. He gave me back my smile. I am very sorry for your loss. God Bless.



  108. Edouard Vannier on June 27, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    My sincere condolences to Dr. Damon’s family. Dr. Damon was a superb dentist and a kind man. I do research at Tufts Medical Center, and Dr. Damon was a graduate of Tufts Dental School. That was enough to create an immediate bond. Dr. Damon loved his work, and had great skills. He pursued the interest of the patient, and clearly explained his approach of care. I trusted his opinion. We even had time to chat about travel, research, gardening, ticks and sometimes … politics. Once, as my Friday afternoon appointment was coming to an end, he invited me to join the team for happy hour. I declined because he had work to do. I sincerely regret to have lost an unique opportunity to know Dr. Damon a bit more. A man who cares about doing good is a man who never fades away. We shall remember Dr. Damon for this talent and his kind soul. May his soul rest in peace.



  109. Linda Mannix on July 13, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    The pictures! Dr. Damon beamed when I asked about his family. He would happily open his phone and grin from ear to ear when looking at those family photos. I remember thanksgiving photos, Halloween photos and also a cake that his son made or perhaps helped make! Boy, was he proud of his son and wife. I would want him to keep showing more pictures but he had to do his job and I needed to get my teeth repaired. I always felt at ease in his chair, he would answer every one of my sometimes silly questions during my visit. I am sure he has passed his gift of warmth, love and kindness on to his son where it will live forever. May peace be with you all.



  110. Dawn Hicks on July 22, 2020 at 1:19 am

    My deepest condolences to Dr. Damon’s family, friends and colleagues. I had the good fortune of being one of his patients over the last couple of years. Of course I appreciated his expertise, but his genuine care and sense of humor really stood out. He will be truly missed!



  111. Ed O’Callaghan on August 5, 2020 at 1:27 am

    On behalf of my family,
    I wish to express my deep condolence on Jeff’s passing. I have been a patient of Jeff’s since he started in Cambridge. My wife just showed me his photo & then told me to read below his photo. I asked her earlier today to see if Jeff would be working tomorrow. I am saddened & shocked to read of his death. A kind, intelligent friend who would always talk about his wife, Mom & Dad & would show me the latest photo of Charlie. I can’t imagine your pain on such a tremendous loss. Sincerely,
    Ed O’Callaghan Jr.



  112. Laura Warren on August 24, 2020 at 2:49 pm

    To Jeff’s family,

    My sincerest condolences to all of you. I had the good fortune of being Dr. Damon’s patient at Dental Services, and I always appreciated his kindness and authenticity. I am a physician, and he always remembered this detail and asked me about how my work was going. We would bond over the challenges of working in health care, as well as our respective nontraditional career paths into our work. We also had sons of similar ages, and he had such pride for his family. He also did incredibly amazing work with his hands. My brother is a dentist and has very high standards, and Dr. Damon was never intimidated by the fact that I consulted with my brother from time to time, and even was willing to collaborate with him in thinking about the best care for me. Dr. Damon was willing to think outside the box, and was such a critical thinker in terms of approaching patient care. I will miss Dr. Damon’s care so much, and am so sad to know that his life was taken so early. May the blessings he brought into the world be always remembered. Sending wishes for peace to all his loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.



  113. Bastien Guerin on September 8, 2020 at 3:35 pm

    I was a patient of Dr. Damon and the news that I was given, that he “would not be coming back” completely devastated me. He and I were roughly the same age. The last time I interacted with him was to discuss adult braces and a bridge, and he said to me jokingly “you don’t really need to do this, you’re already married, right? So you’re all set!” I loved his sense humor, he was a “real person” who loved to interact with others. Leaving at that age is simply unfathomable. It must very very difficult for his wife, son and close family. My condolences to you all.



  114. Candi on November 1, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Dear family & friends of Dr. Damon,
    I was a patient of Dr. Damon. Please accept my deepest condolences! May God give you all the strength you need after going through such a difficult time. Recently, I was looking forward to going to the dentist and wanted to say Hi to everyone at dental service, and especially to see how Dr, Damon was doing! But I just heard the news from my friend today who I referred to Dr. Damon. He told me that Dr. Damon had passed away. I was sad, with tears. At Dental Services, I asked to have a gentle, nice doctor who would not try to sell me anything or do things that are not necessary. Everyone recommended Dr. Damon and said he was a nice guy. This young doctor loved his patients and he was always listening to and caring about them. I was so afraid to see the dentist, but then I saw him with his great smile. He was such a friendly and gentle guy who fixed so many of my dental issues. I spent my entire 2017 with him fixing my teeth problems. We talked about food and childcare. He always told me about his wife and his son. He often told me that his father loves to make bread. I love his attitude towards patients and he never did anything to make me pay a lot of money to fix my teeth. He always tried to fix my problems and help me safely. He would never do anything that would cost me in the future. I feel sad and scared about who will be my next dentist. I miss him and am sad that he is not there anymore. I am sad and crying because it is hard to find a dentist with this much passion for his patients. He was like a friend and listened to everything I said and did not try to rush me out the door. Thank you so much, Dr, Damon. You will be truly missed, especially your smile. Thank you! Rest in Peace! -Candi

    I am so very deeply sorry for your loss. I learned of Dr. Damon’s passing two months ago when I went to the dentist for a cleaning. I knew he had been sick, and had sent a card to the office, but I hadn’t heard anything, so I inquired as to how we was doing. I learned of his passing, and immediately broke into tears. Dr. Damon was such an absolute pleasure to have as my dentist. Even when I moved out of state for four years, I would continue to schedule my trips home to Boston around dental appointments, and Dr. Damon would always work with me to make sure I could get an appointment on a tight schedule. I really always looked forward to seeing him on my trips home. He told really bad dad jokes, and I laughed (or at least chuckled) at each one. He would always ask me for updates on the going ons in DC, and we would discuss our very different music taste. What a light he was in that office. Imagine looking forward to going to the dentist! It is difficult to explain this type of loss – of someone who was neither a friend nor someone you see everyday, but of someone who is a member of your “life” team, who you just expected to see at a scheduled time, who was there to make sure parts of you were OK. This is a deep void for my family and for all of Dr. Damon’s patients. I send my sincere condolences to his family.



  116. Jeff on February 5, 2021 at 2:29 am

    To the Family of Dr. Jeff Damon:
    I am at a complete loss of words for how grief stricken I was to learn the passing of Dr. Damon this past January when I went to get a cleaning for the first time in 2 years. I remember the first time I met Dr. Damon, I knew instantly we shared a bond when he said, “Oh look-ee here, someone with the same name as I!” And ever since then I had gotten to know Dr. Damon better with each encounter, since he would always have the same humorous inquisitive delight in in meeting me, almost as if it were the first time. He would alway point out that we shared the same first name and my “big pearly whites”, as he referred to my teeth, and what classic / unique teeth structure I had. The last time I spoke with Dr. Damon, he even asked how my mom was doing, and it was so hard for me to tell him in person that she had also just passed away from cancer at the young age of 48. This is one of my biggest regrets in not telling him , and .. I simply did not want to ruin the mood or disclose this sensitive information at the time in the office. I was genuinely surprised he even recalled my mom (on a first name basis), and I think that truly shows how much Dr. Damon really cared about all of his patients. Dr. Damon also shared with me that for a period of time he was also a cancer researcher, which I also shared another connection to, since at that time (~2 years ago), I was a cancer research intern at HMS. All of what he told me about his own journey in medicine only inspired me to motivate and pursue medicine. Thank you Dr. Damon for your encouraging words and demonstrating that even you yourself were able to complete your DMD after 10 years of graduating in biochemistry, which I too majored in as well! I want to end this by saying, I always enjoyed going to the Dentist’s office because you were my dentist. Thank you Dr. Damon, I truly miss you so much, your snarky aloof humor, and will continue in my pursuit and follow in your footsteps to become a compassionate and renown doctor just like you

    Sincerely,
    Jeff



  117. Desiree Goodwin on May 29, 2021 at 1:52 am

    I returned to the dentist for the first time since the pandemic for a cleaning and asked about Dr. Damon. I was shocked and saddened to learn that he died a year ago and I didn’t even know. I wish the practice had sent a note to his patients. I read each and every one the remembrances left here, and it is clear that he deeply touched the lives of many with his kindness, humor, and professionalism, and he had the unique ability to connect with each patient as an individual. That made me care about him as much as he cared about me as a patient. I would often trade stories about holiday plans. He spoke lovingly of his wife and son. He reminded me of the great comedian, Danny Kaye. He was a star in his corner of the universe.



  118. Robb on November 3, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    Like everyone else I was at a loss for words in finding out. What a kind gentle soul he was. Always had classic rock on in the background singing along as he spent hours working on my smile. We talked baseball, music and what a wry humor he had. It always felt like spending time with old friend. Jeffrey will be missed. God bless you Heather and Charlie , may you find peace in knowing just how much he was loved by so many.



  119. The Roddenberry Family on November 3, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    My heart goes out to Dr. Damon”s Family. What a wonderful soul of a person to have to leave so early his spirit will be truly missed He was truly a warm hearted spirit! I will pray for all of you and know that he is always in our hearts God bless all of you



  120. Janet Shaw RDH on December 18, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    I worked with Jeff at Dr. Stephen Halem’s office, he was kind, generous, and a wonderful dentist. I lost touch with him and I’m so shocked and saddened to hear this news.



  121. JP on September 21, 2022 at 4:51 pm

    I used to tell Dr Damon that I finally found my lifetime dentist – that he was my “prosthodontist.” He was a great doctor. Funny, kind, and very smart. We drove the same car; however he also had a Italian exotic. I was shocked to learn the sad news when I finally went back to the dentist in 2021. Dr Damon would have busted my chops for being so late for a cleaning. While I only knew him professionally, beyond our shared car interests, I am certain he was an amazing man, husband, father, and friend, especially if I miss him as a “my” dentist. I’m sure there is excellent prosthodontics in heaven.
