A Little Bit About Dr. Jessica Lawson
Jessica Lawson, D.D.S., not only focuses on your oral health, she focuses on whole body health and emotional wellbeing. That’s what a wholistic dentist does—she assesses and treats every aspect of your body and your mind, and she won’t start any treatment until she has a comprehensive understanding of who you are and what your goals are. Whether you’re looking for a prettier smile, an end to TMJ pain, sleep apnea treatment so you can sleep like a “normal” person, or just twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings, Dr. Lawson is the dentist in Urbandale who’ll treat you like family.
An Enduring Passion; a Commitment to Excellence
Dr. Lawson has always practiced dentistry, respecting the oral-systemic connection and how anatomy, medications, diet, and habits affect the comfort, function, and aesthetics of your oral health. For this reason and her love of medicine, Dr. Lawson decided early in her career to complete the Dawson Core Curriculum.
Dr. Pete Dawson and his team have taught dentists from all over the world how the muscles of the face affect the jaw joints, which, in turn, affect the dentition and comfort of the patient. Dr. Lawson prides herself on the education at the Dawson Academy she received because this has enabled her to treat patients’ oral health while improving their physical health and emotional well-being.
The Dawson Academy’s Concept of Complete Dentistry has allowed Dr. Lawson to provide her patients with the wholistic dentistry they need and deserve. As a graduate of The Dawson Academy, Dr. Lawson is one of only 10% of dentists in the country who practice the Concept of Complete Dentistry. She can identify the signs of problems before any symptoms or damage occurs, which means you can receive treatments in a more conservative and less costly manner. Surgery and high-cost procedures are always a last resort and rarely even necessary at Lawson Dentistry.
Dr. Lawson is one of the few dentists in Urbandale who works with teams of medical professionals prior to treating patients with complex medical conditions. She’s not just a treat ‘em and street ‘em type of dentist. She will spend countless hours evaluating your medical history and devising a treatment plan that ensures your whole health is protected and treated.
Lifelong Learning to Better Serve Her Patients
While studying for her Master’s certification in the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine to treat adults with sleep apnea, she became intrigued with pediatric airway disorders. She worked diligently to get certified to help children get treatment early on to avoid more invasive orthodontic procedures down the road.
Dr. Lawson has even received advanced training and education in implant dentistry. Simply put, there is no end to Dr. Lawson’s desire to learn constantly, teach her team the latest innovations, add to her already-impressive revolutionary dental technology, and devote her life to her patients’ health and wellbeing.
Dr. Lawson serves the community as a dentist, a volunteer, and a mentor. Even on her days away from the practice, she donates her time to the Saint Francis of Assisi school, serving lunches and volunteering in the art room.
