Dr. Jonny completed his undergraduate studies at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia where he graduated with great Honor and Distinction. From there, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University-Medical College in Richmond, Virginia where he was awarded his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (D.D.S) in General Dentistry. While at VCU, Dr. Jonny was awarded the prestigious Health Profession Scholarship from the United States Air Force and was selected to attend the distinguished United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. At the Air Force Academy, Jonny ascended to the rank of Captain and completed his post-graduate residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.

During his active duty service, Dr. Jonny organized and promoted numerous community health outreach events for children and volunteered many hours to provide dental care to the under-served pediatric population. Through his volunteerism, Dr. Jonny found his calling and passion to work with children. Wanting to provide the best care possible for his pediatric patients, he pursued additional education to specialize in pediatric dentistry. Dr. Jonny went on to complete his Pediatric Dental Residency through NYU Lutheran at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage in which he received extensive specialty training in all aspects of pediatric dentistry, including comprehensive full mouth rehabilitation under general anesthesia in the operating room setting. Certified in BLS, ACLS and Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Dr. Jonny is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as well as the American Dental Association and New Hampshire Pediatric Dental Society.  He is a medical staff member of: Springfield Hospital, Valley Regional Hospital, Alice Peck Day Hospital, and Concord Hospital.

 

When asked why he chose the Pediatric Field, his face lit up with a bright, caring smile, “Because kids are so much fun to work with.   It’s so important to care for them early in life to not only protect and promote their health and happiness as children but it will also help them grow into happy and healthy adults as well - its NOT just about teeth.” 

“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.” - Mother Theresa

Dr. Jonny, who was born in Hanover, Pennsylvania and grew up in West Chester, PA, now calls Southwestern NH home with his wonderful wife of twelve years, Sara and their 2 beautiful daughters, Holden, who is 6, and Thompson,11.  After many moves due to education and military service, they are thrilled to finally have a community to call home.  On a limited basis, Dr. Jonny still practices at Spence Dental in Claremont and Grace Family Dentisry in Concord while Sara is the lead teacher for Parent-Child Classes at Monadnock Waldorf School.  As nature enthsiasts, they love all things outdoors, especially hiking and camping.
