Dr Jones and the staff at Arctic Smiles are the best. The practice is so efficiently and smartly run so that there is never any wait. Dr Jones is experienced, knowledgeable, personable and kind and his staff are the same. We like that he waits for the best time to start treatment to minimize the amount of time braces need to be worn. The office decor is themed according to its name and is very fun! My 5 year old daughter loves the office decor and considers it a treat to come along for her older sister’s appointments. Highly recommended!

We love Arctic Smiles Orthodontics! My daughter that has a heightened fear of dental work is always at ease at Arctic Smiles. Dr. Jones is very caring and professional. He always takes the time to answer my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. Their office is very fun and inviting and their staff is very prompt, kind and friendly.

We love Artic Smile.  Friendly staff and always on time. We never have to wait more than 5 minutes. The assistants are always prepared and knows each of their patients as well as Dr Jones. We had gotten a couple other quotes and decided on Dr Jones because of how personable he and the staff is.  We are in child #2 so we have been coming for a few years. It gets better every time.

My entire family sees Dr Jones. My son has been going to Arctic Smiles for a few years, I just started Invisalign, and my wife will be starting the same shortly. Dr Jones and his staff are absolutely the best! They are warm, attentive, honest, knowledgeable, and just the best at what they do. Even when I leave a message after-hours for a non-urgent concern (expecting a call back the following morning), I immediately received a call from Shelby the office manager. Now that is excellent patient care.

Dr. Jones and his staff are the best. We had two kids with braces at same time. Easy to obtain quotes and payments plans, highly qualified and super personable and kid friendly. Kids were always happy to go appointments. Dr. Jones and staff also support their local schools and give back to their community. Highly recommend Arctic Smiles to all families!!

A very over the top theme when you walk in that makes you forget you about to get braces. Lol. Seriously though, a fun theme to walk into. The place was clean and Dr. Jones had a great personality. We were referred there and they offered an honest and doable plan on being practice with little teeth issues to avoid major issues getting older. We appreciated their honesty and care and will be moving forward with their expertise.

My son has been an orthodontic patient for over six years and has been with Arctic Smiles since we moved here four years ago. Dr. Jones and his staff are awesome. Everyone is friendly, professional, and punctual. They always fit us in immediately if there is a problem with my son’s braces, be it a loose bracket, loose tooth, or pokey wire. We have had nothing but good experiences with Arctic Smiles.

Dr. Jones and his staff are amazing; friendly, fun and accommodating. I had two teens get braces at Arctic Smiles and we are very happy with the results. My daughters’ smiles are now beautiful. the process was efficient, and the prices very fair. I would recommend Dr. Jones in a heartbeat.

One of the best offices I have been to! Dr. Jones and his staff treat you like family. They are all very well educated, and make sure that you understand the treatment that you or your child have received at each appointment. The schedule is very accommodating, which is hard to find with many offices. One thing I am really impressed with is that Dr. Jones really takes the time to get to know his patients, which is something many doctors don’t do anymore. I would recommend Dr. J and his team to any and everyone!

Dr. Jones and his staff are consummate professionals. We experienced an out of hours wire detach from the brace brackets, which caused major discomfort, and Dr. Jones answered by personal cell and met us at his office within 30 minutes. Great customer service, great staff, always friendly and informative with treatment and process.

We just moved here from Atlanta and needed to get my daughter set up with a new orthodontist. I called Arctic Smiles after reading several reviews and researching other local pediatric orthodontist. Dr. Jones and his staff were amazing. I thought it was so great that the doctor came out to meet us before we were even called back…he just wanted to come out and introduce himself. I have never had a doctor do that. He was kind and personable. You could tell he really loves what he does! I would highly recommend Arctic Smiles Orthodontics.

Our family moved here one year ago while our oldest daughter still had her braces on. We were very concerned about keeping up her treatment since she was close to getting them removed.  Not only did they take over without hesitation, but they took the time to meet with us prior to her first appointment.   Now our daughter’s teeth are perfect and our son is underway.   After only six months we can already see huge improvements and will definitely be going to them for our youngest when her teeth need straightening.  We would recommend Arctic Smiles to everyone!

Best Orthodontist in Scottsdale! We did get through most of the process with a different orthodontist with my oldest but weren’t happy, then found Dr. Jones and Artic Smiles. He and his wonderful staff worked much better with my daughter and then both of my sons. Great office, great results and best of all for me didn’t nickel and dime through the process. For the Best Orthodontist and staff chose Artic Smiles!

Dr. Jones is awesome. Having used another practice for my two older kids, I can appreciate his kind and gentle personality. He is always happy and pleasant to see. My son has a great smile as a result of Dr. Jones work and he is currently treating my youngest. His staff is also amazing. Always pleasant when interacting with them. I highly recommend Artic Smile for your Orthodontic needs.

Dr. Jones and his staff are WONDERFUL! He treated my husband and I like family. Even through the chaos of our changing family schedule, his office was so flexible and accommodating to our needs. I would highly recommend anyone of any age to check out Arctic Smiles. If for anything, you should stop by the office to check out the inside – it’s amazing! We can smile with our teeth showing now 🙂

Anecia L. from Mesa, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jones is simply amazing. Not only were the results of my teeth exactly what I wanted but the process was a joy and cost was very reasonable. Nothing was ever painful like I anticipated braces to be. Dr Jones and his team are professional yet very warm and caring not only of your smile but your well being as a person. They take their time with you, listen to what you have to say and answer all questions clearly and effectively. I highly recommend going to Arctic Smiles!

K. T. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I don’t think anyone could come close to Dr. Jones. He is professional personable friendly and has a great staff.  He keeps it moving your in and out like clock work and you never feel rushed or ignored. My daughters teethed were a jacked up mess but within a few months her teeth look close to perfect. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that needs an orthodontist.

We couldn’t be happier!
