Meet Dr. Jon Lucas
A bio with a twist…credentials of course, but more personal information for a “personal touch”. My wife’s name is Anne. We have 3 children: Olivia (born 2007), Jonathan (born 2009), and Katherine (born 2011). I attended the University of Mississippi and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a major in biological sciences and a minor in Chemistry. I attended the University of Tennessee-Memphis for dental school where I graduated in the top 10% of my class. To round out my SEC schools, I attended my orthodontic residency at the Vanderbilt Orthodontic Center where I still serve as an Assistant Clinical professor of Orthodontics. I initially opened my orthodontic office in Cool Springs in October of 2001. I currently practice in Brentwood, off Moores Lane, and in Belle Meade across from Kroger. We currently have the distinction of being the only Elite Invisalign office in the area which basically means we are in the top 1% of all invisalign providers. I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Tennessee Association of Orthodontics, The Southern Association of Orthodontics, Tennessee Dental Association, American Dental Association, Nashville Dental Association, Millennium Study Club and recently lead a Spears Study Club. Additionally, I serve on the board of Daystar.
On a less serious note, but more personal note: Other things I love and enjoy: my wife, my kids, my mother and father, my job, my staff, running, marathons (most notable: Boston Marathon), biking, triathlons (Notice I did not include swimming…trying to learn to love it!), seeing old friends, making new friends, Ole Miss, the Grove, my in-laws (seriously), brother and his spouse, sister and her family, my God, our church, sweet tea, chocolate chip cookies, fruit, steak (med. rare to rare), fried chicken (although I don’t eat much), the beach, seafood gumbo, a little singing in the office, dancing (and trust me, UNINHIBITED!), Newton, Mississippi (hometown), Neshoba County Fair (look it up), my fair cousins (Stubbs & Tannehills), football, baseball, basketball, Predators, Titans, all genres of music (of course country!), Lightning 100, Nashville, TN, Alpine Camp for Boys, mowing my grass, Ponte Vedra, holidays, Tampa Rays, the thought of running an ironman (3 young kids…that’ll have to wait), pound cake slightly under cooked, taking trips with my family, taking trips alone with Anne (my wife), laughing a lot, out loud and often…”The practice of orthodontics”, the art of creating beautiful smiles and the many wonderful relationships I am able to develop with the patients and families I treat.
