I think being a family dentist is very important. People have needs in their family whether they have a husband and wife, single parent, one kid, multiple kids—it doesn't matter. Families are important to me. I have a larger family: I have four kids. I think that being able to treat the entire family from early ages all the way through later years is very critical and it's fun, on top of that. It's nice to have variety with that and provide services that people can utilize and benefit from at every stage of life.
Watterson Family Dentistry even offers screenings and treatments for sleep apnea and TMJ disorders. In fact, we are the only Jackson, MI dentist office that provides oral appliances to treat sleep apnea.
And we’re happy to see your family members in dental emergencies. Thanks to our extended hours and talented staff, we can usually get them in for a same-day appointment.

Our Technology Helps Us Serve Your Family
We’ve invested in cutting-edge dental technology so we can offer your family the highest quality care. For example, we’re the only dental practice in Jackson, MI that uses a 3D X-ray machine. Among other things, it can help us:
- View your airway to help us diagnose sleep apnea
- Evaluate you for dental implants and identify the best areas for implant placement
- View your complete tooth structure and surrounding areas to perform quicker, easier tooth extractions and root canals
To use technology effectively, you need the training to back it up. Our doctors and support staff have taken many hours of continuing education to keep their skills sharp and learn the latest techniques.
Dental Sedation to Soothe Your Family’s Nerves
If any member of your family suffers from dental anxiety, they’ll be relieved to know they can get dental sedation if they need it. Dr. Watterson, attended the respectable Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation to gain advanced training in Sedation Dentistry.We offer two different forms:
- Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”
- Oral sedation in the form of a prescription medication
We can even use nitrous on children!
