Meet Dr. Jake Pranckun

On Being a Dentist

I love working with my hands, solving problems, and fixing things that are broken. Being a dentist means I do that every day. I am fulfilled when I’m able to help a patient get out of pain quickly, transform a smile, or restore the ability to chew comfortably.

I am getting know and building relationships with those we serve. I love when a patient feels comfortable enough with me to give me a hard time.

Education and Continuing Education

I am a dental nerd, so I’m constantly reading online dental forums, discussing cases, and learning from and with my peers. I’m also an active member of the Frank Spear Study Club and enjoy the challenges of those rigorous courses.

I love learning about new technologies and approaches to treatment. With our ever-advancing knowledge, I’m able to provide even stronger results for my patients, in the most comfortable manner.

Personal Life

I’m originally from Lancaster, PA, and now live in Gap with my wife Lace, and four children: Shelby, Ella, Hollis, and Brantley. Our family is rounded out with our dog, Maddie. I love being outside, especially with the kids: we enjoy hiking along the Susquehanna River.
