Meet Dr. James Lynn Davis

dr-james-photoI attended Bradley University where I got my undergraduate degree in Biology.

I earned my DMD degree from the School of Dental Medicine at Southern Illinois University in Alton. At the time, I was a member of first graduating class of the new dental school.

I served as a dental resident at John Cochran VA Hospital in St. Louis, MO in 1975-76 before relocating to Peoria, IL with my wife, Susan.

I opened a practice in Peoria, IL in 1978. My wife and I have two sons, Ryan and Greg. Ryan is a periodontist with offices in Peoria and Bloomington, IL.

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 International College of Dentists.

In addition, I serve as a faculty member of the OSF St. Francis General Dentistry Residency Program.

I serve as volunteer dentist at the Peoria County Health Department, Heartland Community Health Clinic, and Dental Lifeline of Illinois.

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.

Listen to “High Tech Dentistry: Interview with Dr. James Lynn Davis, DMD” audio podcast on BlogTalkRadio (about 26 minutes in length).
