A Complete Health Dentistry Practice
Overall Health & Wellness
As a "complete health" dentistry practice, Jax Beaches Family Dentistry cares for our patient’s overall health by emphasizing the connection between oral health and the health of your entire body.
Complete health dentists take cues and clues from our patient’s mouth to find signs of illness that they may have or may be at risk for in the future. Did you know conditions like chronic (reversible) gingivitis or (irreversible) periodontal disease may put you at risk for cardiovascular/heart disease, poor glycemic control (diabetes), rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory complications, stroke, and more?
At Jax Beaches Family Dentistry, we guide you towards your best overall health by delivering all of the most advanced dental services under one roof in a friendly, relaxed environment. And we have emergency appointment times available daily!
A wide range of dental treatments

We offer access to a wide range of different dental treatments including root canal treatment, tooth filling services, dentures, veneers, same day crowns, dental implants, and teeth whitening.

Dentistry is the science behind the interactions that take place within the oral cavity and entire body, but for me it's an opportunity to compassionately care for people. My goal is to help patients either get or maintain a beautiful, fully-functioning smile. I'm also quite focused on the overall health and wellness of every patient. Every day I work to create an inviting atmosphere that makes my patients feel welcomed, safe, and comfortable. Together we are always striving for compassionate care and great results."
