Dr. Jones is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry in order to further refine his skills and expand his expertise. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. Earning the prestigious Fellowship distinction takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must complete over 500 credit hours of continuing education, earn 350 of those credits in live courses, and pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.

Jeremy Sant, DDS

“Making one person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world.”

Dr. Sant discovered his passion for dentistry after observing the detrimental effects of poor dental care while living in the Philippines, where many people suffered constant oral pain and felt shame about the appearance of their damaged teeth. Dentistry is instrumental in maintaining not only optimal oral health and overall systemic wellbeing but also one’s self-esteem and dignity.

To Dr. Sant, there is nothing more important, or more beautiful, than seeing a patient smile with a renewed sense of self-confidence. 

My Mission

“My mission in dentistry is to improve lives by providing exceptional treatment using the best techniques, treatments, and technology to elevate oral health, build beautiful smiles, and boost my patients’ self-esteem and confidence. I want all of my patients to enjoy healthy, happy smiles and share them freely with the world.”
