Meet Our Dentist, Dr. Jake Hester, DMD

Dr. Hester is a Diplomat and Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Hester is an adjunct clinical assistant professor with the University of Florida, faculty member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, vice president of Gulf Coast Runners, and race director of the Barron Collier Companies Half Marathon. Dr. Hester’s favorite aspects of being a pediatric dentist are hearing the belly laughs from the kids he treats and the relationships he builds with his patients and their families. He enjoys telling his three boys long cheesy stories, date nights with his wife, supporting her on her ultra-running adventures, cuddling with their two dogs, and getting a little exercise.
Come on over and Dr. Hester will make your tooth alright, alright, alright.
