Dr. Jason Graves was born and raised in Utah by two hard-working parents. His father has worked his whole career in accounting while his mother has worked for the United States Postal Service for 20 years. Having been raised by parents who were no strangers to hard work and discipline, qualities like an exceptional work ethic, honesty, integrity, and respect for others have been instilled in him since childhood. He is second in a family of six children (five boys, one girl). Two of his younger brothers are also dentists.

Dr. Graves received a degree in business management from Utah Valley University.  He was able to graduate CumLade and was able to work a full-time job in the commercial printing industry while attending school full time.

Dr. Graves then attended and graduated from the prestigious Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.  He graduated near the top of his class and loved spending time out of class doing volunteer dental work in the community clinics and organizing a recreational softball team with his class.  He was the recipient of the Callahan Memorial Student award, which is given to the top clinical dentist in his class.

Because providing advanced dentistry is important to Dr. Graves, he regularly takes continuing education courses designed to keep him at the forefront of the dental industry. He loves to evaluate and use the most up to date dental technologies and tools that allow each appointment to be as pain-free as possible.  He approaches dentistry with common sense and values the input of each patient. This allows him to customize treatment plans that meet their individual goals and objectives.

Dr. Graves has received multiple awards for his work in dentistry and in the community. In 2016, he and his wife were honored to be the Pinehurst Parks and Rec. “Volunteers of the Year” for their assistance with multiple youth league teams they coached.

Dr. Graves loves being part of the Sandhills community and treasures any opportunity he has to serve this area and improve each patient’s life. When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Graves enjoys spending time with his family. He loves to golf, coach, and volunteer at church.  He and his wife, Rebecca, have four children who they are constantly chasing between various activities (baseball, golf, basketball, swimming…). They also truly enjoy giving back to the community and building lasting relationships.  With Rebecca’s help and support, they have been able to create a work environment that allows our team and patients to feel like part of the family.  

Dr. Graves is someone who is down to earth and will always involve the patient in their oral health care choices.  He is truly passionate about what he does and loves the practice of dentistry.
