Dr. David L. Jones

Dr. David L. Jones was born and raised in Martinsville, Virginia, where he graduated as the “Senior Scholar-Athlete” from Carlisle School in 2001. During college at the University of Virginia, he played on the club golf team and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Biology in 2005.

Dr. Jones attended dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Dentistry in Richmond. While there, he served for four years as the Student Coordinator for the Virginia Dental Missions of Mercy projects, which provide free dental care to our underserved populations in Virginia. Dr. Jones graduated at the top of his class as a member of the prestigious OKU National Dental Honor Society.

After receiving his dental degree, Dr. Jones continued his education at the Medical College of Virginia in the VCU Department of Orthodontics – one of the most respected orthodontic programs in the nation. In residency, he treated over 200 patients, giving him extensive experience with braces, Invisalign, and difficult cases requiring collaboration with other dentists and dental specialists. Upon completion of these additional two years of specialized post-graduate training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, he received his Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) along with his Certificate in Orthodontics. Dr. Jones was then asked to join the private practice of his orthodontic professor in Richmond as an associate, where he practiced for two years. While there, he acquired tremendous knowledge in clinical efficiency for adult and adolescent orthodontic treatments, aesthetic orthodontic treatments including Invisalign for Teens and Adults, clear braces, and interdisciplinary restorative cases.

Dr. Jones and his wife, Justine, relocated to Roanoke in the fall of 2014 when they acquired Dr. McCorkle’s practice. They are so happy to be back in Southern Virginia in a family-friendly community to raise their son, Lawson. In their free time they enjoy exploring the Roanoke Valley, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.
