Dr. Jill Stetzel Torkeo

Dr. Jill Torkeo joined her family’s practice after graduation from the IU School of Dentistry in 2019. Since joining the profession, Dr. Jill has found her passions in restorative dentistry, crown and bridgework, same-day smile makeovers, and aesthetic work. Her favorite part of coming to work is getting to interact with the patients that her grandfather Dr. Robert Stetzel cared for while creating happy and healthy smiles.

Dr. Torkeo followed closely in the footsteps of her heroes, her father and grandfather. After graduation from Bishop Dwenger High School in 2011, Dr. Jill attended Indiana University in Bloomington where she earned her degree in Biology and minor in Psychology. She then attended the IU School of dentistry, where she graduated with her DDS degree. During dental school, Dr. Jill was involved in many student organizations, where she honed her leadership skills. She was a proud student member of the Student Professionalism and Ethics Association (for which she served as Chapter President and National Regent), the IUPUI Court of Student Governance, the University Hearing Commission, the Indiana Mission of Mercy, and the IUSD Professional Conduct Committee, among many others.

In her free time, Dr. Jill enjoys cooking, watercolor painting, playing tennis, and spending time with her husband and high school sweetheart Jake and their puppy Luciana. She also loves to spend time with her family, and enjoys learning with and from her younger sister Leah, who is in a post-doctorate program in Orthodontics at the Ohio State University.

Dr. Jill is a proud member of many professional dental organizations, and she is excited to continue her family’s tradition of leadership in organized dentistry.
