Dr. Jones grew up in Michigan and moved to the Kansas City area with her family in 1997. She attended Kansas State University and graduated with a degree in Biology. She went on to attend UMKC School of Dentistry and graduated in 2006 with her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. While in dental school, Dr. Jones was the class treasurer for all 4 years, a member and leader in the dental fraternity "Psi Omega", and an active participant in many other dental and service groups and activities throughout her time at UMKC. After graduation, Dr. Jones started working as an associate with Dr. Don Macauley, who treated patients in this practice for over 40 years. When Dr. Macauley retired in 2008, Dr. Jones bought the practice and continues to see the generations of families that have been coming for years for their dental care. We have some families with 3 and even 4 generations that see us! We are so proud of the family atmosphere that this practice maintains. Each person that works at this office puts a high value on their own families, which translates to our work life....we enjoy treating each other and our patients like extended family.Outside of the office, family life takes center stage for Dr. Jones. She is a very proud Mom to four children, ages 10, 9 , 6 and 4, whom you can imagine keep her very busy and on her toes. Dr. Jones' family enjoys spending down time together on the weekends and taking an occasional vacation. They love the beach, as well as going on adventures to visit new places and visit family. Once the kids are all old enough, Dr. Jones can't wait to get them out on the slopes in the winter time and water skiing in the summer....two of her favorite activities, besides just enjoying pizza and movie nights at home and watching the kids in their various activities including sports, dance, and scouts.Dr. Jones works very hard to stay on top of the latest information and technology in dentistry. She is an active member of two dental study clubs that meet regularly. Each study club brings in top speakers and educators in various subjects of dentistry. The study clubs also give local dentists an opportunity to meet and discuss treatment options and find the best possible treatment plans for complicated cases. In many cases, the local study clubs have the opportunity to travel and meet with other dentists nationwide to discuss and learn about the most recent information in treatment, technology, dental materials, business and team building and many other aspects of dentistry. She is a member of both the American Dental Association and the Kansas Dental Association. Dr. Jones is also an avid reader of the major dental journals to keep abreast of the most recent studies and the best materials available in dentistry. Sixty hours of continued education every two years is required to maintain a Kansas dental license, however Dr. Jones exceeds this requirement every year. You benefit as a patient because you can be assured that Dr. Jones is determined to stay current, and go above and beyond with continuing education in dentistry so that you receive the best treatment.
