Casey Jones believes that having a smile that looks and feels good can be life changing. As a graduate of The Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health she has a passion for helping people understand the importance of oral health as part of overall health. She is a life-long learner and considers it her super power to be able to give people their smile back.
Prior to becoming a dentist, Dr. Jones was a professional dancer touring the nation and the world in productions such as “My Fair Lady” and “West Side Story.” She recently moved to Wilmington from the Berkshires, and is so excited to be here! Most of her spare time these days is spent helping to raise two spirited (and incredibly adorable!) little ones. She could not do what she does without the help and support of her husband, Steve.
