We value our patients, plain and simple. At Ross Dental Studio, we believe that the most important thing is that our patients feel heard, and we promise to deliver pressure-free dentistry that suits every patient’s budget. Our goal is to become the premier dental office in our area, and we plan on doing that by using the latest dental technology and the finest materials to treat and educate our patients about their dental health and how it relates to their overall health.
Dr. JaTerra Ross grew up in Chicago, IL. She has always been fascinated by dentistry, even though she grew up being terrified of the dentist! She chose a career in dentistry to help eliminate the fear and anxiety often associated with dental offices.
After high school, she earned her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Southern Illinois University in 2009. Dr. Ross then worked as a hygienist for about five years before she felt the calling to pursue her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree and graduated cum laude from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in June 2019.
Dr. Ross loves to learn the latest techniques in dentistry by taking continuing education courses. She is also an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association. When Dr. Ross isn’t caring for her patients, she loves to spend time with family, travel, attend concerts, and exercise.
At your first appointment, we’ll make sure you feel welcome and comfortable before we do any treatment. Next, we’ll take some diagnostic X-rays, and perform a comprehensive oral exam that includes an oral cancer screening and periodontal probing. Once we have all our diagnostic records updated, we’ll clean your teeth and go over any findings with you. Your comfort is important to us, so if you feel anxious at any time during your appointment, let us know.
At Ross Dental Studio, the patient experience is everything. Because we want you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible, we offer many soothing amenities to make your visit more pleasant.
Using the latest in dental technology helps us make your visit faster, safer, and more efficient. Digital dentistry equipment like digital scanners, panoramic imaging, and intraoral cameras produce images we can view on a computer screen in seconds, which can be enlarged to show great detail. Digital dentistry uses minimal radiation for your safety and peace of mind. Our technology saves you time, because we don’t have to develop films, and also results in less waste to help make our office more environmentally friendly.
