Dr. Jane Ligums
Dr. Ligums derives tremendous satisfaction in helping dental phobic patients to become good, happy dental patients. Aside from her goal of making the dental visit less traumatic for apprehensive patients, she takes pride in creating cosmetic transformations for patients who were once insecure and self-conscious about their appearance to helping them want to smile all the time.
Dr. Ligums joined the Great Smiles family in 2016 and has over 32 years of experience delivering comprehensive dental care in private practice and in hospital dental settings treating both adults and children. She is well trained in many aspects of general dental care, and continues to actively pursue dental education and hopes to obtain her Masters in the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Ligums enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, but especially looks forward to most surgical procedures including extractions, bone grafting, implant placement, crown lengthening, etc. In 2015, she completed a Mastership course in Implant Dentistry, obtained her Certificate in Implant Training and her Certificate of Training for Invisalign.
