A natural drive for excellence emerged early in Dr. Marilyn Jones’ academic background. She graduated from Pasadena High School with honors. Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos accepted her into their freshman honors program. With a minor in English and a bachelor’s degree in biology-chemistry, she earned a teaching certificate and taught high school chemistry in Texas. She holds a master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Houston. Initially an assistant professor of chemistry at San Jacinto University, Dr. Jones eventually held a similar role at University of Houston.
Dr. Jones’ mother, who was a nurse, instilled deep health-related values in her daughter, igniting a lifetime passion for healthcare. Dr. Jones’ dental career began in earnest with acceptance to University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 1979.
Since that time, her thirst for knowledge has never been quenched. Dr. Jones continues to study dentistry and related advances in healthcare to provide the highest level of modern dentistry possible. She has studied extensively with Dr. Omura, a recognized pioneer in therapeutic acupuncture, and had the privilege of assisting him in 19 years under this tutelage. She has presented with Dr. Omura at conferences across the globe, teaching his Bi-Digital O-Ring test technique. In 2010, she spoke, as Visiting Associate Professor of Holistic Dentistry in the International College of Acupuncture and Electro Therapeutics, at the Japanese Symposium in Tokyo and at the Symposium at Columbia University in New York.
