Learn what makes him passionate about being a dentist.
A smile is often the first thing you see when you look at a person. Which is why it is important to entrust the health and beauty of your smile to a highly skilled dentist who puts your care first. Dr. Jonas Ashbaugh, Owner of Blue Sky Dental Group, is that kind of dentist and his dedication to his patients is apparent in every detail of his practice.
“Dr. Jonas” opened Blue Sky Dental Group in July 2017. He always knew he wanted to settle down in north Florida with his family and was excited when the opportunity presented itself to open his own practice here. He studied at the University of Florida and later went on to dental school at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. After graduation he enlisted in the US Army and became a Captain, providing dental care to soldiers and their families.
For Dr. Jonas, one of his greatest joys in life is the look on his patient’s faces when they see their dental work come together. He shared the story of a patient who was born without four teeth. He required extensive dental work over a period of time, including braces and grafts. In the end Dr. Jonas was able to pull it all together and give this man a new smile. He will never forget the day the man saw his smile after completion of all that work. It literally transformed his face. Dr. Jonas says it was a privilege to serve him. While not all cases are that dramatic, it is the ability to help people that gives Dr. Jonas his passion for dentistry.
A combination of low stress and high-level technology reflects the philosophy of care at Blue Sky Dental Group. When you enter the office you instantly recognize it as a place where patient care and comfort are highly valued. From the beautiful modern design of the waiting room, special touches like bottled water and fresh coffee to the courteous and attentive staff who greets you.
Patient rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs where you can watch Netflix, snuggle up with a pillow and blanket while using our wireless headphones to relax with the sounds of your favorite music. The aroma from warm, scented towels provides the perfect ending for your visit.
Dr. Jonas believes cutting edge technology contributes to a more productive and comfortable dental visit. In well-appointed treatment rooms, Dr. Jonas provides state-of-the-art care using digital x-ray machines which subject patients to much lower levels of radiation than traditional x-ray machines. They also have 3D x-ray technology, which gives us a more in-depth view of dental tissues.
