Our General Dentist

Sanford L. Lefcoe, D.D.S. 1926-2002

Sonny Lefcoe was a great friend, leader, and partner. Sonny will be remembered not only for his vision, leadership, and love, but also for the spirit and inspiration he gave to our practice. For now and forever, we will be deeply indebted to him.




Jerome H. Weinstein, D.D.S. 1934-2004

Jerome H. Weinstein should be remembered as a great person who loved his family first, but was just as passionate about his work. His high standards along with compassion and utmost respect for all he encountered were the qualities that made him a father figure. He was wise and always had a great sense of humor. Even though he had a strong physical presence, he was very gentle with his patients and made them feel at ease. He will be missed by all of us and remembered everyday.

Personal Message - I was born and raised in the Tidewater area and there is nothing more that I enjoy than helping people with their dental concerns and achieving a perfect smile. If you have had a bad experience in the past or are just "scared of the Dentist", I am sure I can help.

With three children of my own, I know how to handle and treat kids in a kind but efficient manner. Educating children on how to brush, floss and take care of their teeth creates a great foundation for a good adult patient.

We are a big family at LWSS and I am available to help with your concerns at any time. If you have a problem, no matter how big or small, please ask. I want to help you feel good about your smile!
