About Us

Our Doctors

Drs. Jason and Jean Larsen are a husband-and-wife team who share a passion for dentistry and work together seamlessly. They are dedicated to education and committed to caring for your smile. Jason and Jean both worked as associates in private practices before opening their own dental office in Dallas. They are loving the freedom of ownership as family time is very important to them. Jason and Jean have two children, Nathan and Madison, and a loyal family dog. On weekends, they can often be found exploring local attractions such as zoos and museums, or getting out in nature.

Meet Dr. Jason Larsen

Jason earned his undergraduate in neuroscience and behavior from the prestigious Columbia University in 2004 before attending NYU for his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and graduating in 2010. He continues his education as often as possible, taking courses on CAD/CAM and endodontics, and advanced courses on dental implants. Jason is Level 2 certified in oral sedation. He is a member of the ADA and AGD. He enjoys problem-solving and handling complex cases, such as extractions and root canals. When not caring for patients’ smiles, he loves watching football with his family (Go, Vikings!), walking the dog, building computers, working out with P90X, watching movies, and playing soccer and golf.

Meet Dr. Jean Larsen

Jean was born in China and lived in Germany and Canada before attending the University of Maryland, Baltimore County for a BA in biology. Until college, she dreamed of being a professor, but a prerequisite science class made her fall in love with science. She began volunteering in shock trauma every Saturday from 11 PM to 7 AM the next morning, but knew medicine wasn’t for her, so she switched to working for a local dentist. Amazed at how he interacted with his patients, Jean aspired to deliver the same level of care. While attending dental school at NYU, where she met Jason, she worked in many outreach programs and participated in a faculty practice that treated patients outside of the educational setting. She loves the rewarding profession of dentistry—She can transform a life by transforming a smile. Her favorite part of dentistry is when a happy patient says, “Wow, I didn’t know my smile could look like that!” Jean is a proud member of the ADA, AGD, and American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
