Jack D Clifton, DDS
Making a Difference
“Dentistry was the perfect career choice for me because I love working with my hands and I love working with people. There is an art involved in creating something for someone that becomes part of the healing process. My patients know that I don’t just treat teeth, I treat people. That’s why I believe in giving you all the information you need to make informed decisions about your dental care. I don’t believe in cutting corners. That’s why I use only the best labs and the finest-quality materials. I want my patients to have the best care. I have great respect for them and their individual needs. I enjoy helping people improve their self-esteem and making a difference in their lives.”
