Meet The Doctor

Dr. Jenn Dixon

NEW OWNER OF FAMILY DENTAL CENTER OF MACON

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

I graduated from the University of Georgia. After that, I obtained my dental degree from the Medical College of Georgia’s School of Dentistry. I am originally from Marietta, Georgia, but have been practicing in the Macon area since 2000. I originally owned Ingleside Dental Associates for 15 years. After I sold that dental practice, I practiced at Dental Care Center for 3 years and at Ambrose Pediatric Dentistry for 2 years. I am married to my wonderful husband Michael and am the proud mother to my three young children, Ethan (16), Barrett (11), and Mason (20 months). In my free time, I enjoy the beach, fishing, and relaxing with family and friends. I love animals and enjoy cheering on my Georgia Bulldogs during football season.

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!

Kristen joined the team when Dr. Jennifer Dixon bought the practice. After working together at a previous dental office, Kristen was excited for the opportunity, knowing that she shares the same passion for helping patients achieve a beautiful smile, as Dr. Jenn and the Family Dental Center team.  Kristen has a background in Retail Management, but decided to stay at home when she had her daughters. After nine years as a stay at home mom, she went back to work for a dental office, as an insurance coordinator. She uses that experience to help answer any questions patients may have about insurance, treatments and procedures. She loves to interact with the patients and make their dental experience as pleasant as possible.

Kristen is married to her wonderful husband Derrick and they have two beautiful daughters, Alyssa and Ansleigh. She loves to spend time with her family and craft in her spare time. She loves animals and cares for all the animals on their “farm” and the occasional stray.
