He is a driving force for constant change and pushes us to evolve every day, as well as connecting with patients with his abundant energy!
Dr. Jared Schoettger was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska and attended Nebraska Wesleyan University for his undergraduate education. He completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2012, followed by his Master of Science degree in Orthodontics, all at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry.
During his time at UNMC, Dr. Jared was able to learn from and work with many different orthodontists in the Lincoln community, which has allowed him to experience a wide array of different treatment approaches and philosophies. Dr. Jared is involved in the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists and has been able to attend multiple national conventions, in-office courses, and practice management seminars. In addition to mastering traditional bracket systems, Dr. Jared is able to confidently provide treatment with Invisalign and Damon brackets due to his travels to attend courses dedicated specifically to those subjects.
In 2020, Dr. Jared is currently serving as the President of the Nebraska Society of Orthodontists. We are glad that he has been part of leading this organization focusing on providing resources and communication for Nebraska’s orthodontists.
You will see Dr. Jared if your appointment is in Seward, as we have been fortunate enough to partner with the Seward Dental Clinic in their new location to see our orthodontic patients in their own community on select Fridays each month.
Dr. Jared has been married to his wife Kali for twelve years, and they have a three- and five-year-old keeping them busy! They love to hang out at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, travel, read, cheer for the Huskers, and play with their wheaten terrier, Senna. Jared loves to fish, golf, and play guitar. Kali loves to sing and photograph the kids!
Dr. Jared was excited to join Schoettger Orthodontics in 2015 and has had a great time serving the amazing families that are part of the practice. He is a great asset to our office and and plays a large role in providing excellent orthodontic care.
