Dr. Jones has loved orthodontics ever since she was 12 years old! All these years later, she still looks forward to coming to work and helping her patients smile with newfound confidence. Getting to know each child, teen, and adult in her treatment chair on a personal level is a joy, as well as being a positive force in their lives from appointment to appointment.
As a kid, Dr. Jones went to a “Girls In Science Day” at Brookhaven Community College, where a local dentist took impressions of the attendees’ teeth. She thought it was the coolest thing she’d ever seen! When she started her own orthodontic treatment, she quickly fell in love with the engineering aspects of the work, even making her very own retainers and headgear out of soldering wire and hot glue. The final push she needed to enter the field was her mentor (the 9th female orthodontist in all of Texas), who taught her how to love and care for patients effectively while changing their smiles.
After graduating from Southern Methodist University as a Hunt Scholar, Dr. Jones took the dental admission test and got the highest score in the country that year! She attended Baylor College of Dentistry-Texas A&M Health Science Center, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery. Shortly after, she chose to pursue orthodontics as her specialty and matched at one of the top programs in the country: The University of Texas at Houston. After 27 months of advanced training, she completed her Master’s and Certificate in Orthodontics.
Dr. Jones is happily married to Jason, an army veteran. They have two children named Kenton and Madeline, as well as a Sheepadoodle named Skye. Outside of the practice, you can usually find her spending quality time with her loved ones, baking, swimming, or preparing for her next triathlon.
