Your Penticton Orthodontist

Dr. Jonathan Paxon

Happy to be back in the sunny Okanagan! I grew up in Penticton, and after eighteen years away working and studying, I returned home. My father was a dentist in Penticton for 30 years, and I, too, found my way into the dental profession.

Orthodontics is a lot of work but also a lot of fun. I enjoy the challenge of designing unique, individual treatment plans to create amazing smiles, but the relationships formed with patients and families are equally important.

Education & Experience

I completed a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Trinity Western University in 2002, where I worked for several years.

I later returned to school to pursue graduate studies in inorganic chemistry at McMaster University.

I went into dentistry at the University of British Columbia and graduated with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry in 2013.

Immediately after completing the dental program, I continued to specialize in orthodontics. In 2016, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Master of Science in craniofacial science and a diploma in orthodontics.

I completed the national specialty board examination the same year and have been practicing as a certified orthodontics specialist since then.

Memberships & Affiliations

I am a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and maintain membership in the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists. I actively continue my education by attending numerous seminars, meetings, and study clubs.

Outside the Office

My wife, Kristine, and I stay busy with our four active sons. Andrew, Mitchell, Patrick, and Charlie make sure there's never a dull moment. We spend our time enjoying the beaches, mountain biking, hiking, and skiing that the Okanagan area has to offer.
