Jack Dunlevy was raised in a small town in West Virginia. A curious kid who was highly energetic, he was constantly building things. From soapbox racecars to animal traps and fishing lures, there was always a project underway. Be it taxidermy or electrical projects, he survived adolescence without burning his parents’ home to the ground!
When not involved in these projects, Jack played sports with all the boys in the neighborhood. The competing continued into high school. The football coach was helpful in finding a good place to combine academics and athletics.
Dr. Dunlevy attended Brown University on an academic/athletic scholarship and graduated with honors in 1980. He holds a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Government from Harvard, and a Master's degree in Orthodontics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been practicing orthodontics in Midlothian since 1987.
In addition to his ABO certification, Dr. Dunlevy is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Virginia Dental Association, Southern Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Virginia Association of Orthodontists, UNC Orthodontic Alumni Association, and the Richmond Dental Society. He has held leadership positions in many of these organizations. Additionally, Dr. Dunlevy has served as a board member of the Dental Foundation of North Carolina since 2011.
Dr. Dunlevy has published research papers, nationally and internationally, and lectured at scientific conferences. He is particularly interested in jaw growth in children with severe orthodontic problems, the surgical correction of facial deformities, and health policy.
Jack and his wife Renee live in Midlothian with their three sons. He enjoys jogging and watching athletic events with his family and friends. On any given day, you can find him in the woods, watching a game or “The Andy Griffith Show”, or out on the water. As you might have guessed, Dr. Dunlevy is an avid fisherman.
Community participation has always been important to our practice. Dr. Dunlevy coached Little League baseball and youth basketball for years. From the Special Olympics to science fairs, he enjoys supporting our patients in their extracurricular endeavors.
