Dr. Riley was a renowned educator and former full-time faculty member of the USC School of Dentistry with a passion for gnathology, the science of how teeth come together.

The time-tested principles that he learned early in his career have served him well. Dr. Jones is an expert in solving esthetic and functional problems due to tooth wear, damaged and lost teeth, as well as occlusion and bite disorders. Dr. Jones aims to balance health functions and esthetics using the latest in-office dental technologies. He has mastered the most current innovations in dentistry through continuing education at The Dawson Academy where he is both a Scholar and an Ambassador. The Dawson Academy is renowned for its courses in continuing education; dedicated to teaching a comprehensive approach to dentistry with concentrations in occlusion, temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and esthetic restorative dentistry.
