Meet Our Team
Dr. James Strawn
Dr. James Strawn DDS has lived in Florida most of his life. He attended dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University because Florida did not have a dental school. After serving as a dentist in the Air Force for two years, he returned to Florida to open a practice more than 25 years ago. It is not uncommon for Dr. Strawn to treat the kids and grandkids of people he served way back. He deeply values the relationships that have been built, and always welcomes new patients. It’s a warm, family atmosphere.
