As our patient, you’ll receive personal attention from your very first visit until your treatment is completed. We want you to look forward to coming to our office because when you get here, you’ll be greeted and treated by people who care about you and your needs. Everyone here wants to make your visits comfortable, convenient, and pleasant.

Board Certification

By choosing an orthodontist who is board-certified you will be choosing a doctor that has gone "above and beyond."  Board certification is a voluntary process that less than 33% of orthodontists complete.  Board certification shows a commitment to a higher standard of patient care and treatment results.  Dr. Jones strives to give each and every patient a "Board Quality" smile.  She judges each case based on the high requirements of the board to ensure that each patient's smile is not only beautiful but a functional, healthy smile that will last a lifetime!  For more information see the American Board of Orthodontics website or additional information here

Modern Technology and Treatments


Orthodontics is continuously changing with the advent of new technology to achieve a more perfect smile faster, with less discomfort, and with more esthetic options.  At Willow Bend Orthodontics, we have invested in the latest orthodontic equipment so that we can provide you with the best orthodontic outcome.  Whether it is our new digital x-ray machine or our intral oral scanner (no more impressions!), Dr. Jones is committed to using proven modern techniques to achieve great smiles for her patients.  She attends Continuing Education frequently to ensure they are able to offer the newest and best technology to each patient. Also, Willow Bend Orthodontics' clinical staff are all registered dental assistants in Texas which ensures the highest level of care to our patients.

Pricing and Financing


The orthodontists at Willow Bend Orthodontists strive to provide excellent orthodontic treatment that is also affordable.  We are happy to offer no-interest financing with flexible down payment options and extended financing to provide the best financial option for each patient.  Unlike most offices, we are in-network for almost all major insurance PPO networks which means patients save 20% on average on their orthodontic treatment.  


Convenient Hours

Morning, Evening, & Lunch hour appointments

We understand that scheduling appointments can be difficult, so we have made it a priority to offer as many appointments before and after school and after work as possible. Consequently, in addition to regular work hours, we offer extended hours that include early morning, lunch time, after work/school appointments to work around your schedule when possible.  We also strive to schedule your appointments (no double booking!) in a way that ensures very little, if any, wait time.  We acknowledge how valuable your time is and that you want to get back to your life as soon as possible. 


Small and Personalized Practice


It is Dr. Jones’ goal to help each patient achieve a healthier and happier life by providing exceptional care that goes beyond their smiles.  As a result, Willow Bend Orthodontics is designed to provide individualized patient attention, rather than treating you like just another number at one of those mega-clinics. Our goal is to deliver our patients a positive environment, while providing high-quality and cutting-edge treatment.  Also, parents of patients are always welcomed back into the clinic area.  We encourage any questions that you may have about your or your child’s treatment and progress.  You should expect a treatment update at each visit.  Dr. Jones’ standard of excellence is evident in the quality of treatment results and also their outstanding record of patient satisfaction.    


Giving Back


Our office is always looking for ways to give back to our community because without our community we would not be here. This year we are excited to have sponsored the following groups and events:

  • Komen Race for the Cure
  • Operation Kindness: Pets for Vets
  • Seven Loaves Food Pantry
  • Girl Scouts of North Texas

Dr. Jones is also a provider for Smiles Change Lives. Smiles Change Lives is a national non-profit organization which promotes and provides access to life-changing, essential orthodontic care for patients from low-income families.

Transfer Patients


Many orthodontic offices do not accept transfer patients.  Not only does Willow Bend Orthodontics accept transfer patients, it is our goal to make a tranfer of treatment be as smooth as possible.  Dr. Jones used 22 different types of orthodontic brackets during her orthodontic residency which allows her to use the braces already present rather than replacing them.  If you are moving to Plano/North Dallas or need a new doctor please contact our office today! 972-732-1400
