Providing Complete Dental Care since Establishing Our Office 1980
James A. Mitchell
“For me dentistry is a passion! It is an exciting profession with an explosion of new technology, technique and materials. But my favorite reason for loving my profession is the people. Every person is interesting and has a story and dentistry gives me the privilege to get to know them and help them. I enjoy helping people with their basic preventive dental care but I especially like a challenge: the complex restorative patient, the fearful patient, the detailed cosmetic patient or the dentally neglected patient. Helping these people gives me a great deal of satisfaction.”
Born in Ann Arbor, MI, Dr. Jim moved to Fort Myers as a child, which in Southwest Florida terms, makes him a native. After high school, he attended the University of Florida where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a dream of becoming a dentist. It was at Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta, Ga where Dr. Jim met and married Dr. Yolanda.
Partners in work and in life, Dr. Jim and Dr. Yolanda raised their three children in Fort Myers and the family has expanded to include four grandchildren and two puppies. They enjoy frequent trips to the Florida Keys where they can relax, fish and snorkel.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, Dr. Jim is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the West Coast District Dental Association, the Lee County Dental Society-president emeritus, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Academy of General Dentistry, and Volunteers for Project Dentist Care: a program that provides dental care for the less fortunate of Lee County.
He is also an active member of the Southwest Florida community, donating his time to many area organizations including the Dr. Piper Center for Social Services.
