Dr. Jim MacNaughton

General & Prosthodontics

James R. MacNaughton

A common question I am frequently asked isn’t about dentistry at all, but what kind of hobby I love to pursue in my spare time!

Away from the office, one of my favorite pursuits is furniture making. I suppose if we were living in Colonial times, I would probably own a cabinetry shop (near Paul Revere’s Silversmith Shop) and have a dental chair next to the hearth!

What I love about fine furniture making is what I value in dentistry. It is a commitment to precision; a passion for quality and sincerity in one’s craft.

It is hard to describe the feeling of seeing a beautiful grain in a piece of wood, just as it is hard for me to describe how happy it makes us feel at MacNaughton Dental when a patient smiles – at their perfect smile.

My Patient Care Philosophy Matches My Approach to Life

The values that I embrace in my practice match the values I hold true in every aspect of my life.

  • The Quality of Our Work – There can never be a compromise in the quality of our treatment. We take our time. We don’t rush. We never forget the value of each patient as a person.
  • Treatments with a Conservative Focus – We always start with the simplest and best approach. “Fancy” or “Flashy” is not us; excellent, precise dentistry perfectly defines who we are.
  • Technology – We choose technologies only if they are right for our patients. We adopt a new technology only when we are absolutely convinced of its efficacy.
  • Experience – We highly value experience in our practice. We continually perfect our skills and we love to teach.
  • Patient Focused Approach –We don’t overbook appointments, we don’t “process” people, and we always focus on you.
