Dr. Gary Jones

Collins Family Dentistry wishes to welcome Dr. Gary Jones back to our practice. Dr. Jones is a native of Catawba County, and he actually built his dental practice in this same location in 1993. After an early retirement from our practice in 2019, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Jones back “home.” Our practice is just that to him, as he’s excited to treat old friends, as well as meet our wonderful new patients. Dr. Jones has a love for all things outdoors. He’ll gladly spend hours talking about hunting, fishing, and golf. His newest role is that of “grandpa” to Bowen, as well as a second grandson due in January. Welcome Home, Dr. Jones!
