About Your Dentist

Daniel Jones, DDS

Dr. Dan Jones loves helping his patients improve their smiles and their self-esteem. He wanted to become a dentist because he enjoys interacting with people and using his hands. Dentistry was a natural career choice for him.

Dr. Dan completed his undergraduate training in only three years, then graduated from the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry. In dental school, he was an honors student, a member of the admissions board, and a member of the student discipline board.

During his 33 years of dental practice (over 25 of those right here in the Fort Smith area), Dr. Dan has provided comfortable, honest dental care. His direct approach – with a little bit of personality thrown in – immediately sets our patients at ease.

Dr. Dan served as president of the Board of Trustees at the UMKC School of Dentistry and currently serves as a deacon at East Side Baptist Church.  He is a member of the Roy J. Rinehart Memorial Foundation, the Northwest District Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the Fort Smith Dental Association.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, relaxing at the lake, and playing tennis.

Casey Tate. Jones, DDS

Great dental experiences as a child led Dr. Casey Jones to choose dentistry as her career. Later on, after only three years at Missouri State University, she received early admission to the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry.

Dr. Casey has now helped patients smile brightly for over 30 years. She uses humor to create a relaxed atmosphere that helps ease our patients' anxiety. The best part of her job is actually seeing her patients overcome their fears.

Dr. Casey is a member of the Roy J. Rinehart Memorial Foundation and previously served as a member of the Board of Trustees at the UMKC School of Dentistry.

Outside of the office, Dr. Casey enjoys playing tennis, square dancing, and spending time at the lake. Since 2001, she has also taken part in several medical/dental mission trips to Senegal in west Africa.
