Dr. Jones or George as he is known to most of his patients, friends and family completed his training at the University Of Florida College Of Dentistry in 2003. He graduated in the top of his class and served as Class President during his junior and senior years. After graduating, Dr. Jones immersed himself in his new career and tried to learn everything he could about the latest techniques and materials.
In fact, he completed over 220 hours of Continuing Education last year alone, (over 10 times North Carolina's State Licensing requirement). In April 2010, Dr. Jones was inducted as a Fellow to the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the largest dental implant organization in the world. Dr. Jones has a passion for dentistry, and can't seem to get enough new knowledge.
As he has become recognized as a clinician who is familiar with the latest in technology and materials, Dr. Jones has recently become a product evaluator and consultant to several dental manufacturers.
On a personal note, Dr. Jones was raised in Wheeling, WV and graduated from Wheeling Jesuit College with a BS in Chemistry. After graduating he relocated to St. Petersburg, Florida, where he met his wife Holli, a Wilmington native.
After working in pharmaceutical and medical equipment sales for 9 years, he was hired as a regional sales manager for a dental manufacturer. After 3 years of spending 30-40 hours a week in dental offices, he knew he had found his true calling. With his wife's support, he quit his job, sold their house and enrolled in dental school. They decided to relocate back to North Carolina to be closer to both their families.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Jones is busy raising 3 daughters, 2 dogs, 2 cats and an assortment of fish.
