Early dental care is essential for overall health and quality of life. Good oral hygiene helps kids build stronger self-esteem and confidence which carries into adulthood. 

My team shares this passion and dedication. Composed of diverse individuals, we’re committed to providing an exceptional patient experience. 

We want our patients and your family, to feel welcome in our office and confident you’re receiving knowledgeable and compassionate care.”

—Dr. Jarrett Caldwell (Dr. JC)

Passionate About Caring for Smiles

Dr. JC’s mother, an emergency room physician, encouraged him to explore the field of healthcare as a possible career.

In college, his mentor was a practicing dentist, and Dr. JC had the opportunity to shadow him for a few years. That’s when he knew dentistry was his calling.

While attending dental school, Dr. JC enjoyed working with kids of all ages, which led him to pursue a dual specialization in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. Now he loves creating positive feelings in children and appreciates the energy and excitement his patients bring to his days!

“Kids are completely honest and authentic. You never have to guess where you stand with them, and I appreciate that the most!”

—Dr. JC
