Welcome Dr. Doll
The Fredonia Health Center is pleased to introduce our new dentist – Dr. James Doll!
Dr. Doll grew up in the San Diego area, enjoying the surf, sand and sun. It was here, as a youth, that he first gained a desire to one day practice dentistry. Coming from a family where money was tight, Dr. Doll was appreciative for a mother who gave all she could to give her kids the best possible life. “My mother was single she worked nights and yet she knew that I didn’t smile much because my teeth were crooked and I had some cavities. She knew it affected my self-esteem, my schooling, and my life. She committed herself to my smile and me. It is something for which I will ever be grateful.”
After a few trips to the dentist and braces, Dr. Doll’s life was never the same. He desired from then on to pursue a career in dentistry and positively affect others’ lives as had been his own. “I was grateful for a dental clinic that offered a sliding fee plan. It made dentistry affordable for our family. It changed my life.”
Dr. Doll later graduated high school and headed to Utah to start his college career at Brigham Young University. He would later progress in his dental education at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health where he graduated with accolades and honors, including a certificate in Dental Public Health and Hanau Corporation’s “Best of the Best in Prosthodontics” Award. He, his wife and three children love this area and are excited to call it home.
He enjoys all aspects of general dentistry including:
•Sealants and treatment for kids
•Fillings and restorations
•Emergencies and treatment of pain
•Crowns, Bridges, Veneers
•Removable Partials, and Full •Dentures
What is a sliding fee program?
The Fredonia Clinic accepts most dental insurance plans. For those who don’t have dental insurance, a sliding fee program is available if you qualify. A sliding fee is a federal program, which simply allows you to get a discounted dentistry based on your income. For some individuals, this discount can be up to 50% off of the price of dental care. This applies whether you live in Arizona or Utah.
We also can set up a payment plan to complete your required dental care.
