Meet Your Flagstaff Dentist
John L. Bacon, DDS
Dr. John Bacon has been serving Flagstaff, Arizona as a local dentist for over 25 years. First opened in 1987, Dr. Bacon’s dental office has been a long-term home for an experienced and friendly staff, a comfortable atmosphere, and satisfied dental patients throughout Flagstaff and Northern Arizona. Come and visit us! We make your dental visit as gentle and comfortable as possible.
With a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Pacific in 1982 and a graduate from the prestigous University of Minnesota’s School of Dentistry in 1986, Dr. Bacon is fully qualified to meet all of your dental health and hygiene related needs. Dr. Bacon keeps up with current dental techniques, assuring you the most up-to-date treatment.
Dr. Bacon listens to what you want and will communicate with you making sure you understand everything prior to providing care. Their primary concern is your dental health. Dr. Bacon’s dental office is prevention-oriented. If not already in good dental health, he knows what to do to get you there and maintain your health to minimize future needs. Many patients that came in with multiple problems now visit just to get their teeth cleaned, and are seldom in need of more dental work.
Dr. Bacon takes many relevant continuing education courses. He is particularly interested in integrated health care and the effects of oral health and its relation to overall health, in particular cardiovascular health. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf, skiing (both cross country and downhill), and hiking. (He has a 6 year old Golden Retriever that insists on a long walk through the woods daily that has little care about Flagstaff’s sometimes unpredictable weather.) He consistently wins 1st place at the county fair with the roses he grows at his Leroux dental office. He is learning to speak Spanish and often visits Mexico. This year he caught a 10 foot long sailfish in Zihuatanejo (a small town in Mexico about the same size as Flagstaff).
Dr. Bacon was voted Best Cosmetic Dentist in Flagstaff in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Flagstaff Business News. Check out the before and after photos to see why he was voted Flagstaff's Best Cosmetic Dentist!
