Meet Dr. Blake Jones
Blake Jones is from Idaho Falls, ID, where he grew up enjoying the outdoors and sports. Blake attended Brigham Young University in Idaho, graduating with a degree in Biology. In 2001, Blake took a two year hiatus from his studies to serve a church mission in California and Peru and now speaks fluent Spanish. Shortly thereafter, Blake married his high school sweetheart Jenny.
Dental school sent Blake and his family to Cleveland, OH where he attended Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine from 2006-2010. Blake received a Health Services Scholarship from the United States Air Force while in Dental School and commissioned as an officer in the USAF in 2007. Following graduation he accepted a position in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska. The AEGD strengthened Blake’s skills in advanced dental procedures such as root canal therapy, surgical procedures (wisdom teeth extractions and implant placement), intravenous sedation, treatment in sleep apnea, and orthodontics.
Following residency, the Air Force transferred the Jones family to England. They served a three year tour at RAF Lakenheath, near Cambridge, UK. Blake enjoyed his career in the Air Force and contributed greatly to the mission of the 48th Dental Squadron. He managed programs in community outreach and education, preventive dentistry, forensic dentistry, children’s dental health month, and supported the specialists when manning was low. He particularly enjoyed his time in the Pediatric clinic, where he developed a love of working with children. The Jones family loved traveling around the United Kingdom and Europe and will forever remember their time “across the pond.”
Upon completion of his Air Force commitment in 2014, Dr. Jones joined forces with his England dental colleagues in North Carolina where they would raise their children in “the country’s best place to raise a family.” The Jones family is very happy to call Raleigh home.
Blake and Jenny have six children (3 girls, 3 boys) that have been born all around the world. They love playing sports, hiking, biking and raising their kids together in the home, woods, and community. They love serving others in the community (scouts, sports, and in reaching out to the needy) and in their church. They have a strong faith in God and recognize His hand in blessing their lives.
