Why Did You Decide to Become a Sleep Dentist?
Dr. Jones actually grew up in a dental-oriented family – his father was an orthodontist, and his father-in-law was a dentist! He learned a lot from both men, discovering just how rewarding the field could be. Today, he has both a brother and a brother-in-law who are orthodontists, another brother-in-law who is a periodontist, and two more brothers-in-law who are general dentists.
While Dr. Jones has loved his career as a dentist and learning about as many facets of the field as he possibly can, dental sleep medicine has become his primary focus. This is partly for a personal reason: he struggles with Obstructive Sleep Apnea himself. Because of this, he understands the struggles his patients face with traditional CPAP machines and also knows firsthand how helpful an oral appliance can be when trying to treat OSA!
Where Did You Study Dentistry & Sleep Dentistry?
After completing his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University, Dr. Jones pursued his dental doctorate at the University of Iowa. He has also undergone state-of-the-art training in dental sleep medicine and has achieved diplomate in the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM). Today, he is an active member of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy and a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of the Office, What Do You Enjoy Doing?
Dr. Jones have been married to his high school sweetheart for over 30 years, and they have five beautiful daughters together, along with one grandson. Outside of working hours, his top hobbies are hanging out with loved ones, taking the camping trailer out, traveling, keeping up with fitness, and anything to do with sports. He’s also a passionate hiker! In fact, he’s hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim to rim (across AND back) all in one day, twice. That’s about 46 miles altogether. He and his wife have additionally hiked the entire Inca Trail in Peru, which ends at Machu Pichu. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
