The American Dental Association (ADA)

The American Dental Association (ADA) exists to empower the profession of dentistry and to assist it's members in advancing the overall oral health of their patients. Together with over 163,000 members, they have been driving dentistry forward for 160 years. The ADA is also a strong advocate for public health – fighting oral cancer and combating the opioids crisis – and they are teaming up with industry partners to help patients stay healthy from the dental chair to daily care at home.

The Florida Dental Association (FDA)

The Florida Dental Association (FDA) is a state constituent of the American Dental Association (ADA), which represents dentists throughout the country. Florida has six district dental associations that represent the interests and activities of dentists in those areas. Each district association is comprised of affiliate (local) societies that have separate membership policies and programs, but typically work in conjunction with their district dental associations. As such, they function as what is called a tripartite (three-part organization). By joining one level, doctors get the benefits of all of them — the “Power of Three,” which underscores the mission of the ADA, FDA and its district associations to “help members succeed” by delivering programs, services, continuing education and advocacy to maximize value and service on every level.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of comprehensive cosmetic dentistry and encouraging the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care. The AACD offers superior educational opportunities; promotes and supports a respected Accreditation credential; serves as a user-friendly and inviting forum for the creative exchange of knowledge and ideas; and provides accurate and useful information to the public and the profession.

The AACD includes more than 5,000 dental professionals, laboratory technicians, educators, and researchers from 70 countries worldwide. This global perspective allows AACD members to gather information from the international field of cosmetic dentistry. With the formation of the Accreditation and Fellowship Programs, the AACD offers the most stringent and respected postgraduate certification in cosmetic dentistry to both dentists and laboratory technicians.

The Southern Academy of Prosthodontics Award

Essay contests were held for senior dental students beginning in the early 1970’s. This was later changed to the awarding of a plaque to the outstanding senior dental student in the area of prosthetics from each of the Schools of Dentistry within the Academy’s geographic borders. This award continues today supporting excellence in prosthetics. To receive this award is acknowledgement of a student being the best in not only his class, but in all classes, in all schools within the area.

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry Award

As the leading organization in implant dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry is the home of the leaders in the profession. The Academy and its Foundation have recognized the accomplishments of clinicians, researchers, students, and volunteers in the field of implant dentistry through various awards.

Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society

Omicron Kappa Upsilon is a national dental honor society founded for the purpose of encouraging scholarship and advancing the ethical standards of the dental profession. Members, elected from the top 20 percent of the graduating class, show potential for professional growth and serve as examples among their peers. Students who, in addition to scholarship have demonstrated exemplary traits of character and potential qualities of future professional growth and attainments, may be elected to alumni membership by the active members of this component chapter.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
