Meet The Doctor

Dr. Jenn Dixon


Dear Patients
Hope everyone is having a great start to 2021! My name is Dr. Jenn Dixon and I have some exciting news to share! I have recently purchased Family Dental Center, the former dental practice of Dr. Charles Ross. Family Dental Center, located at 3706 Mercer University Drive, has been successfully serving the dental needs of Macon and the surrounding area for over 40 years.
Dr. Jenn Dixon

A Little Backstory

Dr. Jenn Dixon graduated with her BSA degree in 1996 from the University of Georgia. She then obtained her DMD degree in Dental Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia’s School of Dentistry in 2000. Dr. Jenn is originally from Marietta, Georgia, but has been practicing in the Macon area since 2000. She originally owned Ingleside Dental Associates for 15 years. After she sold that dental practice, she practiced at Dental Care Center for 3 years and at Ambrose Pediatric Dentistry for 2 years. She is married to her wonderful husband Michael and is the proud mother to her three handsome sons, Ethan (17), Barrett (12), and Mason (3). Dr. Jenn is not only a dedicated mother to her 3 sons, but also to her 5 fur babies: Jaimoe, Lexie, Chank, Kiki, and Buddy. She also has 6 chickens and even a pet turkey! In her free time, Dr. Jenn enjoys the beach, fishing, and relaxing with her family and friends. She also enjoys cheering on her 2021 National Football Champions, the Georgia Bulldogs, and enjoys watching her 2021 World Series MLB Champions, the Atlanta Braves!

A New Service That I Will Be Providing

At Family Dental Center I will be introducing Oral Sedation. Dental patients with generalized anxiety, prior dental trauma, or generalized fear of the dentist can take oral medication in order to reduce their anxieties. The sedative effect allows more dentistry to be completed in fewer appointments, as well as allowing more complex procedures to be performed in less time.

Farewell Dr. Charles A. Ross, DMD, PC

Dr. Ross and I have worked closely together to ensure a smooth transition. Thank you to all the wonderful, loyal patients for making Family Dental Center such a huge success over the last 40 years! Please call Kristen, Michelle, or Scarlett at 478-474-2557 for your next appointment or if you need emergency services. I look forward to fulfilling all of your dental needs & hope to see y’all soon!
