Hi there! Thank you for allowing us to introduce the Adventure Kids Dental family; we hope we’ll get to learn all about you and your kids soon. Our practice’s focus is on family, and we operate on three pillars: Compassion, Consistency, and Communication.
Dr. Jeff McComb was born and raised in Merced, CA (Central Valley). He graduated from the University of the Pacific (UOP) School of Dentistry in 2007 and worked as an associate within a pediatric dental practice for 13 years before opening Adventure Kids Dental. Dr. McComb also served as Pediatrics Dental Director for two years in a group of over 40 doctors. He is committed to expanding his experience and knowledge by taking pediatric-focused education courses, and along with his wife, has led dental and medical mission trips to the Philippines since 2006.
He enjoys seeing kids relax when they see that visiting the dentist isn’t scary, but can actually be a lot of fun—that’s when transformation happens! Dr. McComb really loves seeing and catching up with families that he’s built a relationship with, it really feels like seeing a family friend or neighbor. Dr. McComb would love to develop this with every family that comes in to see him.
Dr. McComb’s amazing wife, Candy, is also a dentist, and they work together as a dental team—they actually met and fell in love in dental school, and have been on a dental journey for what will be 12 years in June of 2019.
Outside of the practice, Drs. Jeff and Candy love spending time with their 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl), going camping, playing sports, or barbecuing tasty food. The family is active in the faith community at Bridgeway Christian Church, and they hope to welcome you to the practice!
Dr. Candy McComb was born and raised in the Philippines. She moved to California at the age of 20 to finish college at University of the Pacific, where she majored in Biology before she graduated as Valedictorian of her Dental School class in 2006. Dr. Candy then completed a one-year general practice residency at the VA in Palo Alto before she began working in pediatric dental offices, which she loves wholeheartedly.
Her favorite part of working with children is helping them enjoy their dental visits and giving them healthy smiles. She says, “It’s also very rewarding to see a nervous or scared child overcome their fears and build a trusting relationship.” She loves just being around kids and getting to know them and their families.
When she’s not helping children build confidence in their smiles, Dr. Candy loves to spend time with her family and watch her kids play sports; she also likes to travel when they have the opportunity. The whole family is involved in their church and travels together on their dental mission trips.
Drs. Candy and Jeff have been living in the Sacramento/Roseville area since getting married and love calling it home. Dr. Candy has worked in three pediatric dental practices over the last 11 years and is so excited to continue taking great care of kids in their own practice. They aim to be as involved in the community as possible and make everyone they treat feel like a part of the family.
Dr. Jeff McComb and Dr. Candy McComb are general dentists providing pediatric dental services.

Katie hails from the beautiful California redwoods, where she grew up in a small town just outside Santa Cruz. When she was little, Katie’s mom would drive an hour each way to ensure she could see a decent dentist. Katie found inspiration in the dedication and care her dentist and staff provided during each and every one of her visits. These early experiences—combined with her love of scrubs—led to Katie’s passion for dentistry. As an adult, she chose to pursue a career where she could also provide a high level of dedication and care while also educating patients and helping them overcome their dental fears. Katie graduated from Carrington College’s Dental Assisting program, becoming part of the Adventure Kids Dental team from her externship. She is now patiently waiting to take her Registered Dental Assisting exam.
In Katie’s free time, she loves spending time with her hubby Greg, kiddos Aiden and Olivia, and the baby of the family, Eddie the Chihuahua. She loves cooking and creating new recipes for her family, running, and hiking.

Sharesse loves spending time with her husband, Branden, and their two sons, Parker and Blake. As a family, they enjoy movies, beach trips, and going to San Francisco Giants games.
