Transparency is important.
Dental care shouldn’t be confusing or anxiety-inducing. We educate our patients on all of their options and we thoroughly explain procedures beforehand.
Do what’s right.
That means not over diagnosing dental work. Not all procedures are necessary for everyone. And sometimes, it’s not financially feasible for a patient to have all of the recommended work done all at once. We will always help you find a treatment plan that fits your needs. No gimmicks. No sales pitches. It’s that simple.
Community is everything.
No matter your age, race, gender, where you live, or your taste in music—you’re welcome at Wooten Dentistry. Period.
Dr. Jonathan Wooten
Dr. Wooten has been practicing in the Columbus community since 2011. He specializes in family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in Clintonville, Ohio.
I became a dentist because I enjoy helping people in a tangible way. If someone comes to me in pain, I can fix it. If a person is unhappy with something about their teeth, we can find a resolution. It’s gratifying to solve a problem through good results. If I can relieve someone’s discomfort, then I’ve done my job.
