Meet Our Talented Team


Meet Dr. Jeff Morrison

“Dr. Jeff”, as many patients call him, attended the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry where he graduated at the top of his class.  After practicing dentistry in Switzerland for two years, he came back home to Raleigh to join his father’s dental practice.  After taking over his father’s dental practice, Dr. Morrison has continued the family tradition of providing exceptional care in a comfortable, state-of-the-art dental office.  

Dr. Morrison is a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.  He is committed to continuing education and takes many advanced courses each year to enhance his skills to better serve the dental care needs of his patients and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience.

Dr. Jeff and his staff are active in many community organizations, raising thousands of dollars for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure as well as numerous runs, walks and golf tournaments for several charities near and dear to the hearts of his patients and staff.  They recently participated in the Backpack Buddies program to fight children’s hunger and hosted a Halloween candy buy-back program with Operation Gratitude where children donated their candy to  our troops in exchange for a small gift. He and his staff support animal rescue.

Dr. Morrison is the proud parent of identical twin boys, Owen and Jack.  When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Morrison enjoys traveling, boating, and spending time with his family and good friends.

I was born in Ft. Thomas, KY and raised in Sarasota, FL. I have lived in Raleigh for about 30 years and have been working with Dr. Morrison for about 15 years. I am a long time resident of the downtown area and love it! My son, Andrew is currently a student at Appalachian State University and I am very proud of him. I love the outdoors and getting together with friends to run and bike.

I was born and raised here in Raleigh and joined Dr. Morrison's team in 2008. I met my husband, Brian, here at the office and we now have our baby boy, Blayne. Away from the office much of my free time (what is left of it now!) is devoted to my animals as I started a small animal rescue of my own in 2011.

Amanda Verga

Registered Dental Hygienist

My name is Amanda and I am so happy to say that I am back to work at Jeff M. Morrison & Associates DDS after a five year break!  I worked for Dr. Morrison and his team from 2010-2013, then took a little time off after having identical twin boys. They are now in school I am excited to be back!  It is wonderful to see all the familiar faces of staff members and the patients I worked with and grew to love years ago. I look forward to working with everyone again, and to meeting the new patients joining the practice.

Jen Jones

Registered Dental Hygienist

I recently joined Jeff Morrison & Associates DDS and am very happy to be part of this great team!  I'm a Raleigh "native" and love having the chance to live and work downtown, and have had a lot of fun meeting the many patients in the dental practice.  It’s a pleasure coming to work every day and having the chance to help patients maintain and improve their dental health. In my spare time I enjoy getting outdoors with friends and family members.


Glenda Adams-Knecht

Administration and Insurance

I was born in MD and spent most of my Summers in VA, on the Potomac River, with my cousins. Around the age of 10 my family moved to South Florida, where I met my husband, David.  My husband and I would vacation together in NC until finally we decided to make it our forever home. We've been in Raleigh for a little over 12 years and I have been working in the dental field for a little over 20 years. I began working as a dental assistant, then transitioned to Front Office Administration and Insurance. 

When not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our three "fur baby" felines. I also enjoy making jewelry, and other crafty things, with my friends. My favorite Season is "Football Season"!  I am a devout Carolina Panthers Fan!! However, I do root for a few others, when they're not playing against us
