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.

Meet Dr. Jenn's Team

Lisa Harris, R.D.H.
Dental Hygienist

Lisa Harris is an MVP here at FDC! After 41 years practicing hygiene with Family Dental Center, Lisa’s patients truly are an extension of her family. Her patients truly love her and have shown their admiration for her through the years. Lisa remains loyal to her dental patients and dental family, and has no plans on going anywhere! She is rejuvenated and excited to learn new techniques and to continue to grow and prosper with her amazing and talented new dental team! 


Lisa graduated from Macon Jr. College in 1983. She received outstanding Academic Achievement in Dental Hygiene School. Lisa loves to show the value of a good dental homecare program. One of her many passions is showing before and after photos to patients to show them how rewarding regular dental hygiene care can be!


Lisa and her husband Eddie have 1 son, Blake, and a daughter-in-love, Kelly. They also have 2 adorable grandchildren, Reese and Halle. Lisa enjoys baking, working in her flower beds, and spending time with her 2 sisters and their families. When all the families get together, you can be sure that there is plenty of good food and fun times to be had!

Whitney Kirk, R.D.H.
Dental Hygienist

Please help us extend a warm welcome to Whitney Kirk, our newest dental hygienist here at Family Dental Center. Whitney graduated #1 in her class, both clinically and academically, from Albany State University. She received her Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2019 and ever since then has been successfully serving her patients’ oral health care needs! 

One of the many reasons you will enjoy being a dental patient in Whitney’s chair is that patient comfort is her number one priority! Not only will she make your dental visit educational, but she will make it fun along the way!

Whitney is a wife and mom to a sweet little girl and mom to two fur babies: Rocky River, the King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and Nova Caine, the spoiled rotten, want to be dog-cat. Outside of the dental office, you will find Whitney enjoying the outdoors, either walking or kicking up dust on a four wheeler somewhere in the woods! Whitney also has a hidden talent because she can sing like nobody is listening! If you’re lucky, she might just sing you a song during your cleaning!
