Dr. James Jelinek: A Warrenton, VA General Dentist Who Offers a Wide Range of Services

Dr. James Jelinek is a general dentist who offers a broad array of services, thanks to his completion of advanced training in areas including dental implants and orthodontics. He was inspired to become a dentist by two things: his love of working with his hands and his own experiences with his family dentist, including orthodontic treatment. When he was younger, he enjoyed taking things like small engines apart and then reassembling them. He also developed an attention to detail when making jewelry and doing lapidary work.

Away from work, Dr. Jelinek enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and exercising, like swimming, windsurfing, and walking. He is also an instrument-rated private pilot and an amateur beekeeper.
