Dr. Jarvis would like to add a short message for her patients:
Dentistry has been an important part of my life since I was young. Having two parents who are both dentists, I learned from a young age about the importance of good dental hygiene. I also remember practicing on my parents and knowing that this was what I wanted to do to help others. I have had the privilege of working side-by-side with both of my parents and learning from the years of experience that they have accumulated. I am proud to call myself a dentist and a caring professional to all my patients.
I have enjoyed seeing patients in Columbus, Indiana, for over 43 years. I have shared funny stories and sad moments with them. We have laughed and cried at the circle of life that we have all experienced together. We have truly been blessed with an amazing network of families and friends. Since August 1st, I have slowed down seeing patients on a limited basis. I have let my daughter take over the day-to-day operations so that I can enjoy traveling, playing with grandchildren, and working in my woodshop. I know all of my patients are in good hands.
Ever since my daughter was a little girl, she has been following my footsteps and is already on her way to making dentistry not just her job, but her passion. When you come to see her, she is not doing work; she is doing what she loves, and it shows in her attention to detail and her comforting touch. She truly wants to make you feel at home and safe—not just a patient but a friend. I am proud to have watched her work alongside her mother and me and keep our family practice growing into the Columbus area for years to come.
