Dr. James Raymond
Dr. James Raymond recognized at an early age the amazing gift his father was able to share with his community, and the appreciation and many friendships that developed through a lifetime of service in dentistry. Dr. Raymond is now the fifth dentist in his family, with his father, uncle, brother, and sister sharing in the profession.
Dr. Raymond attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated from the honors program with a B.S. in Biology and attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. From his initial courses at Tufts, Dr. Raymond developed a passion for restorative dentistry, excelling in crown, bridge, and implant prostheses, as well as esthetic dentistry. He continues his professional studies attending local monthly study clubs (Spear Study Club and Pima Study Club) and traveling to the Kois Center in Seattle and Spear Education in Scottsdale.
Beyond his work at the office, Dr. Raymond is passionate about his involvement in dental outreach programs, both within the United States and abroad. During his most recent mission trip, Dr. Raymond spent 10 days in the Dominican Republic, providing free dental care to underserved children.
On the weekends, you will find Dr. Raymond either trail running in the Catalina or sitting atop Mt. Lemmon, pondering the existence of pine trees in the desert with his fiancée, Jessie, and dog, Rudy. Apart from spending time with his family, Dr. Raymond loves traveling, basketball, surfing, golf, and playing guitar.
Spousal support therapist (to Dr. Raymond) and tree-ring scientist extraordinaire. She uses tree ring data to reconstruct past climates, particularly related to temperature and storms. We think it’s very cool, but she says it’s sometimes warm.
