Your West Lincoln Community Health Partners


Lincoln dentists Jodi Day


Dr. Jodi Day 

I believe dental care should be tailored individually to each person. Providing quality care is my number one goal, and I also think patients deserve personalized attention so they could have an active role in determining the course. This involves presenting options for treatment so that you can make an informed decision regarding the treatment you are comfortable with.

Our dental health is closely connected to our overall health. The latest research and medical findings clearly state that dental problems create inflammation that negatively impacts the rest of the body and can complicate undesirable medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart problems, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis and more. It is a partnership to achieve and maintain oral health for the rest of your life. I am passionate about preventing and treating dental problems for my patients, which in turn benefits their overall health. I am proud to be my patients’ health partner.

I understand that sometimes patients want to treat their dental problems, but are very scared to see dentists. Our compassionate team is trained to cater to patients afraid of getting their teeth worked on and help them overcome their dental anxiety. I want your experience here with us to be relaxing; having an open line of communication is important.  I strive to make dental appointments a positive experience for all, no matter the condition of your teeth or the time between appointments.  Read more here about my approach to dental phobia and making patients feel comfortable and embarrassment free at our caring dental place.


Education and Continuing Education

Before becoming a dentist, I graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center as a dental hygienist. After several years in the dental field, I knew I wanted to do more for my patients, so I went back and completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Through my education and career thus far, I have learned that individualized patient care and quality dentistry go hand in hand. I strive to provide gentle care to my patients while ensuring that I keep them informed every step of the way.

Being aware of and educated in the most recent advances in dentistry and dental technology is imperative to providing exceptional care to patients. Because of this, I attend multiple hours of continuing education courses each year. Continual development of my education helps me keep my patients comfortable while producing beautiful results.

When I am not working with patients, I’m spending time with my husband and two boys. One of my most favorite things to do is watching my sons play baseball. I also enjoy reading, running, doing yoga to stay mentally and physically healthy.

When I’m not with patients, I enjoy maintaining an active style. Exercising and eating healthy are important to me. Discovering insightful books and traveling are hobbies I’ll always find enjoyable; however, spending time with my wife and our three children is the best part of any day for me!
