A trusted dentist in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and provider behind the exceptional dental care at Hale Family Dentistry, Dr. Jonathan Hale is an advocate for patient care with a unique background in dentistry. The award-winning dental practice started by Dr. Jon Hale in 2017 has earned many accolades over the years including multiple Best Dental Office in Fort Wayne and most recently, Best Dentist in Fort Wayne 2022 by the Journal Gazette.
A native of Fort Wayne and graduate of Northrop High School, Dr. Jonathan Hale began his dental career in Zephyrhills, Florida after dental school. While in Florida, he was able to focus solely on perfecting his skill and building his dental experience on a wide range of dental treatments. In the summer of 2017, he moved back to his roots in Fort Wayne, Indiana to raise his family and start his own dental practice.
He sometimes misses sunny Florida but doesn’t have any regrets. He believes the Greater Fort Wayne Area is a community that has a unique opportunity to make an impactful difference. Once a month, he lends a hand at St. Martin’s Healthcare in Dekalb County, just north of Fort Wayne. This clinic, dedicated to offering dental care to underserved communities, aligns with his commitment to service. Furthermore, his passion for hockey, exemplified by his participation in a local league, has inspired him to support Turnstone’s sled hockey team during their competitions.
Dr. Hale knows first-hand the importance of having a caring and compassionate dentist. As a child, he spent more time in the dental chair than most people will their entire lives! Due to a genetic disorder, many of Dr. Hale’s teeth never erupted, which required a full mouth makeover that took most of his childhood years to complete.
He remembers his childhood dental experiences very well. The feeling of being comfortable coming into the office, welcomed at each appointment, and the overall care was exceptional. The patient-focused care that was provided to Dr. Hale as a child inspired him to help others achieve a confident smile like his dentist was able to do for him. People often tell him that they enjoy his calm presence and laid-back attitude.
Dentists have fun, too!
When he’s not taking care of his patients, Dr. Hale loves an active lifestyle! He can be seen riding on two [bicycle] wheels around town or cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightning. An IndyCar and Nascar enthusiast, this dad-of-two also makes time for family fun with his boys. To ensure that every patient gets top notch service and care, Dr. Hale stays up–to–date by frequently attending continuing education courses – a true passion in providing top-notch dental care.
