You know that line in Mean Girls where Janis Ian says, “Oh, I love seeing teachers outside of school. It’s like seeing a dog walk on its hind legs.” We have a sneaking suspicion that’s how people feel about their dental care providers.
Unless you’ve had a lot of dental work done or already know us from “real” life, you probably don’t know the team at Jones Dental that well. Well, that’s about to change. Enjoy the first interview in our Meet the Team series.
