Dr. Jim Ward has been practicing dentistry for 47 years. He acquired his undergraduate and attended dental school at the University of Washington; graduating in 1964. Dr. Ward has owned practices in both Bellevue Washington and Kona Hawaii. Shortly after retiring he decided to return to the profession because of the compelling nature of the progress that dentistry has seen in the past 20 or more years. “Being able to put a tooth back after one has been lost is too exciting a procedure to walk away from.” Dr. Ward met Dr. Macks while inquiring about the need for a volunteer dentist with Pierce County Dental Society. He is board licensed in California, Hawaii and Washington. Dr. Ward is also certified in Cerec crowns, Zimmer implants, and Mini implants.
