Dr. Jonathan Dizon is a Filipino-American, born and raised in Southern California. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in biological science from the University of California, Irvine, he explored the field of dentistry. He shadowed his personal dentist and began volunteering in a pediatric clinic for children from low-income families in Los Angeles. He’s attracted to the hands-on, dynamic, scientific, and artistic aspects of dentistry, but his favorite part of dentistry is building relationships with patients and working together to improve their health, smiles, and overall confidence. In 2015, he moved to Phoenix, AZ and attended Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health where he received his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry. Wanting to be able to provide the best care possible, Dr. Dizon continued his development as a dentist by completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at St. Vincent de Paul Dental Clinic where he obtained advanced training in oral surgery, implant therapy, CAD/CAM dentistry, endodontic therapy, and removable prosthetics. Dr. Dizon recently moved to Austin, TX to be near his long-time girlfriend and join Renken Dentistry. He is excited to be a part of the Renken team and care for our patients The Smile From Within Way.
From the beginning of his journey into dentistry, Dr. Dizon developed a desire to care for those who are underserved. He has worked in community healthcare clinics from Philadelphia, PA to Seattle, WA. Over the last few years, he has helped restore smiles at AZ Mission of Mercy and gone on humanitarian trips to the Dominican Republic. One of his favorite things about doing dentistry in the DR is starting off the day with breakfast on the beach and a quick dip in the ocean.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Dizon enjoys traveling and trying the local food and brews, playing music, and doing HIIT workouts. Since high school, he has played guitar on the worship team at church. He enjoys mud/obstacle course races and has completed the Spartan Trifecta. Brand new to Austin, he is excited for dance floors to open up again and learn Texas Two-Step.
