About Dr. James L. Davis

I’m a member of the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Association, and the Peoria District Dental Society which I served as president. I’m also a member of the Peoria City/County Board of Health. In addition, I serve as a faculty member of the OSF St. Francis General Dentistry Residency Program.

An avid Bradley sports fan, I met my wife, Susan, at Bradley, and both of our sons are Bradley graduates. For relaxation, I enjoy playing tennis, having served in local and state tennis organizations.

Davis Dental Diary

As a dentist, I find it important to keep my patients up-to-date on topics that I get the most questions about. In my blog, I discuss topics related to  How To Evaluate a Dentist, Correct Brushing and Flossing, Veneers, Implants, Teeth Whitening, Fluoride, Reducing Cavities, Oral Health, Teeth Grinding, Dry Mouth, Crowns, Sensitive Teeth, Bridges, Plaque, and much more. Take a look around to see if I can answer your questions.

Why I Became a Dentist

If you want to go even deeper into the heart of my dental practice, read my little article “Why I Became a Dentist” on my Davis Dental Diary blog. Listen to “High Tech Dentistry: Interview with Dr. James Lynn Davis, DMD” audio podcast on BlogTalkRadio (about 26 minutes in length). I explain how I got into dentistry, what’s new in dental services, and how high tech devices give patients more comfort and better results.
