When asked about his impact on the Roanoke Valley, Dr. Jones said:
“I have been passionate about the orthodontic profession from a very young age since my dad is also an orthodontist…. After becoming an orthodontist myself and owning my own practice, I have also found how rewarding it is to give back and witness the positive and profound impact we can make in our community here in Roanoke. As much as I love my profession, I also love the ability to support my patients in their activities and all of the wonderful local non-profit organizations in the Valley. As our office continues to grow, so will our dedication to our community that supports us!”
Dr. Jones is appreciative of the acclaim and the attention it brings to the benefits of service to one’s community.
“I was blown away to be included on the list,” Dr. Jones said. “The work that’s being done by others on the list is incredible. As Roanoke Valley residents and business leaders, it is our responsibility to put energy back into the community. I hope that others will be inspired and find ways to make even small differences where they live.”
