Why She Was Nominated

Drs. Batsevitsky and Jones have been friends since they met in dental residency at Tufts, and a friendly, approachable attitude resonates throughout their practice. “We’re regular, down-to-earth girls who just happen to love doing root canals,” Dr. Jones says. “We let our patients see our personalities, not just our white doctors’ coats.”

Philosophy

“I’m whatever dentist my patient needs me to be, because we want to give every patient the experience that is best suited for them,” Dr. Jones says.

Exciting New Trend

Microsurgical apicoectomies.

Something People Don't Know

Dr. Jones was once a broadcast journalist at her local Fox affiliate. “I wanted to be Diane Sawyer,” she jokes, “but I realized that industry wasn’t going to be a good fit long-term.”
