Meet Dr. Damjan Jutric (You-TReech), DDS, also known as Dr. J.
Born in the former Yugoslavia, he immigrated to the United States in the early 90s with his family, where they were blessed with a new start on life. He grew up in Alaska earning a degree in civil engineering, along with two minors in mathematics and psychology. Graduating with honors from the University of Alaska, Anchorage (UAA), he was selected as the commencement speaker for his graduating class.
He worked for a short time as a civil engineer in both Las Vegas, Nevada, and Houston, Texas. However, his love for dentistry began during a dental mission trip to war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina. His involvement with the mission sparked a passion for educating, treating and caring for patients. Soon thereafter, he started his dental education, earning his Doctorate in Dental Surgery at the University of Texas, School of Dentistry, in Houston, Texas.
Dr. J believes in treating everyone with the utmost respect and providing a safe environment for comfortable and quality dentistry. He continues to learn and stay on top of the latest technology and techniques modern dentistry has to offer by currently taking three times the required amount of continuing education (CE) courses every year.
He has been practicing for many years and is a member of the American Dental Association®, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, Kitsap County Dental Society and Washington State Dental Association.
When not in the office, Dr. J can be found spending time with his beautiful wife, three small children and their dog. In his rare spare time, he loves to travel and learn about different cultures, cook, and explore the mountains.
