Dr. Jones II' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jones II "“I love coming to work every day and having the opportunity to interact with my patients. Orthodontics is such an exciting field, both intellectually as technological advancements continue to evolve at a rapid pace, and emotionally as I greatly enjoy building relationships with the people I help. “I strive to get to know my patients better at every appointment, so having orthodontic treatment with me is typically both fun and educational. Patients learn a lot about their treatment and will always feel informed about what the next steps are in creating their new, beautiful smile. When their braces come off, their smile represents an experience that will always be remembered!” – Dr. Jones Dr. Richard E. Jones, II has been an orthodontist in private practice in the Geist area of Indianapolis, IN since 1995. He moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in 2010 and opened Arctic Smiles Orthodontics, which is now recognized as the COOLEST place for braces in Scottsdale. EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION Dr. Jones holds a B.A. from DePauw University in 1989, and a Doctorate in Dentistry from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1993.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jones II "You may think it's odd for a dentist offering braces in Scottsdale, Arizona, a desert area, to have a name like "Arctic Smiles," but Dr. Richard Jones, the Iceberg Orthodontist, wants to make getting braces a fun and pleasant adventure for his young patients. Your whole experience will be like an expedition through a frosty polar ice cap toward a beautiful, cool smile! When you walk into our iceberg themed reception area, our office mascot, Chilly the polar bear, and his other Arctic friends greet you. Chilly loves meeting new explorers on our iceberg! It's a blast introducing you to our arctic orthodontic world while escaping from the Arizona heat. We have a game room and an iPad in the waiting room to keep you busy while you wait."
