After earning his dental degree at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 1989, he completed two specialty dental residencies, where he earned his certificate in prosthodontics and maxillofacial prosthodontics: the first was in prosthetic dentistry at Louisville School of Dentistry, and the second was in maxillofacial prosthetics at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Jude has lectured all over the U.S. as a full-time faculty member, teaching aspiring dentists about dental prosthetics at three different universities, including the University of Washington.
Outside of the office, Dr. Jude takes care of his Chocolate Lab, Piper, and his Golden Retriever, Moose. His hobbies include reading and drinking coffee. He constantly strives to make the perfect cup and is an avid collector of antique espresso machines.
