This month is the grand opening of Bartram Dental Center just east of I-95 on CR210. The new facility offers a state-of-the-art, full-service dental office with expanded services including implant therapy, adult orthodontics and sleep treatment. Bartram Dental is also home to its very own dental assisting school. The doctors, Dr. Jason Lewis, DDS, FAGD, and Dr. Royce Barlow, DMD, live and work in St. Johns along with their families.
Having been in business since 2005, Bartram Dental Center is all about positivity, compassion, teamwork, and family with the goal of providing patients with the best possible outcome. We had the opportunity to meet the dentists and their team, and tour this beautiful new dental practice right in the heart of northern St. Johns. When you step through the door of the new offices, you feel the relaxing comfort of a beautiful home and a welcome feeling pervades in every detail of the decor and energy of the staff.
Why did you choose St. Johns?
Dr. Lewis: We love the family-friendly spirit that thrives here in northern St Johns County. We see it daily with our patient family and our own family’s life. We are raising our twin sons Carson & Connor here and appreciate the world-class public schools, opportunities for youth sports, and the friendliness of our neighborhoods. We know that we are blessed with an amazing quality of life here. We also did a lot of research before we moved to Jacksonville, and determined that St Johns County had the best school system. Traci was a high school math teacher, so it was important for both of us for her to have a great school district to work in.
What is your practice’s mission?
Dr. Lewis: We made an investment years ago in becoming a “Complete Health” dental practice. There are only a select few Complete Health dentists in the U.S. It involves training, resource commitments etc. For our patients it means we are focused on helping them maintain their very best “complete health” -- not just ideal “dental” health. Patients see our Complete Health mission when we ask about their sleeping habits, diet challenges, new medications, other health issues. We believe the mouth is the gateway to your overall health. We can help people with issues way beyond having a beautiful and fully-functioning smile. Our mission statement is ‘We create healthy, happy people, one smile at a time’.
What is important to you in providing dental care?
Dr. Lewis: We want our patients to relax and have a pleasant dental experience knowing that we will be compassionate while we expertly address their issues. We are fully aware that patients experience “dental anxiety” and we work to make sure that is minimized. We make sure you know what to expect and we are focused on minimizing any discomfort. Many patients also benefit from various forms of sedation dentistry. Ultimately, we know that patients need to have a pleasant experience if they are going to continue to be a member of our patient family. Overall, the most important aspects to me in providing dental care are the patient experience, as well as the team experience. If you have a happy team, patients can sense this, and it makes them feel more comfortable in our office.
What do you want your patients to know?
Dr. Lewis: We want our current and "future" patients to know that we are committed to providing state-of-the-art dental services from our brand new facility just east of I-95 at CR-210. Our modern new office is designed with the patient experience in mind. We want you to be relaxed and confident that our dentists are going to successfully treat you. We want our patients to know that Bartram Dental is locally-owned -- our dentists live here and intend to be leading Bartram Dental for years to come. Any member of our team of dental health professionals at Bartram Dental could work anywhere, but they choose to be a part of our very special Practice. Customer service is a lost art in the medical profession, and it is our passion to bring it back.
How do you work together as a team to help patients?
Dr. Lewis: Recently, we had a patient referred to us by another patient, who has very severe dental anxiety. We listened to her concerns, and presented clinical and financial options to help with her anxiety about dental treatment. We offered this patient conscious sedation, which is a form of sedation that involves taking a couple of pills. When I followed up with the patient after treatment, she was ‘blown away’ about how wonderful her experience was (she had an extraction and 2 dental implants placed) and she was looking forward to coming to her future dental appointments. She loved our customer service and overall work environment. We also communicated with her medical doctors to keep them informed of her treatment and how this procedure could impact other areas of her health. This type of experience is one example of many that fuels our passion as an office to provide exceptional care to our patients.
How do you keep up with current dental technology and education?
Dr. Lewis: Our dentists and other dental health professionals are routinely enrolled in training classes and coursework to make certain we are providing our patients with the latest advances in Dentistry. It's part of who we are at Bartram Dental to fully embrace modern technology especially when it reduces patient discomfort and dramatically improves patient outcomes. We also make sure we are up to date for our assisting school. We are very proud of the men and women that have graduated our Florida Department of Education approved program. We are honored that they have chosen us as a resource to better their lives and the lives of their future patients.
What are some of the best new treatments people may not know about?
Dr. Lewis: Our newest laser technology allows us to treat cavities and other minor procedures without anesthesia. We also have 3D X-ray technology that gives us information about the patient’s airway. Speaking of airway, our laser technology will also eliminate snoring by treating the palate area. This can be done without anesthesia as well. That is life changing!
What are some special features you offer patients at your office to make their experience enjoyable?
Dr. Lewis: Starbucks only wishes their coffee was as good as what we offer (haha). In the mornings, we make freshly baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies to give to our patients as they leave (there’s no job security there!). During treatment, the patient has the option to watch one of their favorite shows on Netflix, Disney+ or Hulu. We also offer warm, scented towels as a finishing touch to your visit with us. Lastly, we have a beverage bar that includes coffee, water, and Gatorade. You may just want to sit next to a fireplace and drink a nice cup of coffee or tea in one of our cozy sofas and relax as well!
How do you help people who are embarrassed by their smiles?
Dr. Lewis: Our dentists will work with you to develop a “realistic” plan that will get you the beautiful and fully-functioning smile that you deserve. We will make sure you understand every step of the process and we will always be mindful of your budget. We also "listen" to your concerns and goals. We fully appreciate that we are working with you to create a smile that will last a lifetime.
Do you live in St. Johns?
Both Drs. Lewis and Barlow along with their wives and families live in St Johns County. Dr. Barlow and his wife, Jamie, are natives of St Augustine. Many of our team members are proud St Johns County residents as well. We all appreciate this very special place.
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not working? Dr. Lewis and his wife Traci, the Practice Manager, enjoy spending time with their twin sons. Their boys are very active in youth sports including baseball, basketball, flag football, etc. which keeps them busy. They also enjoy spending time at home and enjoying all the outdoor activities available in Northeast Florida. Dr. Barlow, his wife Jamie, and their young daughter enjoy spending time with family and friends, riding bikes, going to the beach, and watching Georgia Football.

A Unique Medical Practice Focusing on Optimal Health & Flawless Beauty
Dr. Quinn is a mother, healer, teacher, woman advocate and unbound believer in the mind-body power to accomplish whatever your heart desires.
A single mother of four daughters who are living beautiful lives on their own terms, Dr. Quinn’s mission and commitment are to be a catalyst to empower her patients to do the same. That means welcoming the choice to put self-care at the top of their priority lists, perhaps for the first time in their lives. Patients value the results they welcome. And most importantly, they treasure the way Dr. Quinn makes them feel by how she treats them. Perceptive, compassionate, and intuitive, Dr. Quinn sees the real you even if you can’t. And she sees the possibilities to create powerful transformation at the moment so you can imagine new possibilities for yourself.
Dr. Quinn has been in love with all things beautiful, colorful, and aligned for a lifetime. And she knows that there is so much more to embrace to create a vibrant, healthy, beautiful life from the inside out. When she is not practicing medicine, she is practicing yoga and meditation. She is the walking-talking poster child for what it is to be a woman in mid-life or better who is loving the impact she makes for clients, one important, transformational treatment at a time.
As women, it is our birthright to be radiant. The body is an incredible structure that, if we listen properly, tells us what it needs, and especially what it doesn’t. Rather than simply covering up symptoms with prescriptions, I believe in finding the root of the problem by getting to know my patients and working alongside them in order to identify what imbalances are creating illness, pain and discomfort
L.A. Quinn M.D. is founded by certified ACOG, American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine physician Dr. Linda Quinn, M.D., FAARM, ABBARM. Over the years, Dr. Quinn has taken a multi-layer approach to provide patients with optimal health and flawless beauty. Specializing in regenerative medicine and cosmetic procedures, Dr. Quinn combines science and beauty to create miraculous results.
Everyone has the desire to look and feel younger, and at L.A. Quinn M.D., it's never been easier. With innovative procedures, including Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and EuroThreads Lifting, your body does all of the hard work for you. "I've always sought-after natural alternatives to aesthetic and anti-aging procedures whenever possible," explained Dr. Quinn. "It's an ongoing passion of mine to provide patients with a variety of options that, when coupled with the power of their bodies, help to halt and reverse the aging process."
L.A. Quinn M.D. has recently introduced Euro Face, Neck, and Body Thread Lifting and volumizing to their list of services. The innovative procedure activates collagen growth. Time is seemingly reversed, leaving behind little to no scarring, instant results, and no downtime for those looking to achieve a firm, sculpted appearance. EuroThreads places resorbable surgical sutures below the skin, which will be fully absorbed in four to six months, leaving behind zero scar tissue. The threads help tighten and replace lost volume, providing patients with a sculpted and youthful appearance in various areas, including the face, neck, and body, such as abdomen, knees, and arms. Results can be seen immediately and will continue to improve over the next several months as new collagen growth is stimulated underneath the skin. The results reset the clock and can last up to 2 years or more, depending on the patient's skin, health, age, and overall lifestyle.
L.A. Quinn M.D. also offers natural facelifts using PRF and PRP therapy for patients seeking a natural approach to radiant, glowing skin. PRF Natural Face Lift procedure is best for those struggling with age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. The PRF facelift procedure creates filler from your body's plasma to achieve both volume and silkier skin. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, PRF thickens and tightens thinning skin while effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines and targeting dark circles and skin spots to create a more youthful appearance over time. PRF's effects are long-lasting, providing noticeable results for up to two years.
PRP and its components are the body's primary defense in the repair and healing process, helping restore, enhance, and rejuvenate the body. During PRP therapy, these cells are directed to troublesome areas, encouraging the body to repair physical ailments that typically don't respond to traditional methods. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy has become increasingly popular. It is used to treat various conditions, including hair loss, facial rejuvenation, acne scars, stretch marks, tendonitis, joint pain, and more.
"The body is an incredible structure," explained Dr. Quinn. "Using our own body in conjunction with these procedures is a natural alternative to achieve firmer, radiant, and more youthful results."
As a mother of four daughters, and expert in anti-aging medicine, Dr. Quinn has spent over fifteen years perfecting her practice to provide patients with a plan tailored to their specific needs. She is a catalyst to empower her patients to create powerful transformation and live their lives as the best version of themselves. Perceptive, compassionate, and intuitive, Dr. Quinn sees the real you even if you can't.
L.A. Quinn M.D. specializes in regenerative medicine and hormone balance, including laser therapies, micro-needling, fillers, PRP Treatments, hair regrowth therapies, stem cell therapies, Kundalini Yoga, meditation, and more.
