Dr. John Simmons believes that every patient deserves the very highest level of expertise and service. He strives to deliver on that belief with extensive education, exquisite artistry, vast experience and meticulous precision, balanced with a gentle and caring chairside manner. His career spans more than 25 years, many of them dedicated to caring for families here and in surrounding communities.
After graduating from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry in 1982, Dr. Simmons served as a dentist in the U.S. Navy for several years. He later returned to the metro Atlanta area, where he has been in private practice for over 20 years. His general practice focuses on complex cosmetic restoration, temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and occlusal therapy.
Despite his impressive experience, Dr. Simmons is devoted to continuing his dental education in order to learn the newest procedures, therapies and techniques for the benefit of his patients. He has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education, and is a graduate of the L.D. Pankey Institute, the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study, and the LSU Esthetic Continuums I and II. Dr. Simmons is also a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, and is one of only a handful of Georgia dentists with a accredited membership in the AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry).
Although he is motivated by providing excellent patient care, such dedication does not go unrecognized by his peers. In the summer of 2004, Dr. Simmons was honored to have an article published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry. A year later he was presented with the silver medal at the AACD convention for the outstanding results he achieved for one of his patients.
It only takes one visit to see that Dr. Simmons has shared his caring manner and commitment to excellence with the Smiles by Simmons staff. His entire team works together to exceed patient expectations, and all have words of praise for Dr. Simmons. As one hygienist said, “Dr. Simmons is an honorable man and puts the needs of others before his own. He feels blessed, and desires to share the blessing whenever and however he can.”
Outside of the office, Dr. Simmons enjoys spending time with his lovely wife and three beautiful daughters, water skiing on Lake Burton in the North Georgia mountains, tending his beloved roses, and worshiping and serving at his church.
