Serving Chandler, AZ and surrounding areas. Follow us for special Twitter discounts & deals, dental news and tips! Dr. Jared Pope. It is always easier to talk to someone when you know and trust them. I’d like to tell you a little bit more about myself so we can start out our relationship better. I’m hoping that by having a trusting relationship, you will feel open and be able to share your concerns with me, so that I will be able to take better care of your teeth. I grew up in Sandy, Utah. My father and grandfather are dentist and my mother is a dental hygienist so I’ve spent lots of time at the dentist’s office! Their examples have definitely played a big part in my becoming a dentist. I live in Chandler with my wonderful wife Lynda, and our two daughters, Eden who is 13, and Maiya who is 10. I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy the outdoors. We are avid hikers, mountain bikers, and skiers. You can often find us out on the sand dunes, or hiking the Grand Canyon. After completing a successful service mission in Berlin Germany for the LDS church, I attended the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College, where I pursued a degree in Biology and a minor in German. I then attended Marquette University where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2002. While in dental school, I excelled quickly and was able to graduate early and attend many additional classes taught by experts in the field of advanced orthodontics and TMD (a jaw disorder). During my summer breaks from dental school, I was privileged to spend time volunteering in various dental clinics doing dental work and greatly expanding my experience in the field. Since graduating, I continue to take 20 – 30 hours of continuing education classes every year to be able to stay abreast of advances in technology. These classes have included topics such as implants, sedation, cosmetics, and other advancements in materials, procedures, and equipment. I have been practicing dentistry for over 10 years. I am fortunate to say that we have 3 offices now, two in Scottsdale and one in Chandler. My professional passion is to be able to conquer a person’s fear of going to the dentist. I believe that once a person can go to the dentist and have a good experience, their oral health will be improved for the rest of their life. It just takes one visit, and you like many others, will see that a visit to the dentist isn’t as bad as they thought, in fact it may even be enjoyable!
