James P. Watson, DDS

Dr. James Watson is a native of Rochester and a 2006 graduate of Lourdes High School. He attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry in Lincoln, NE. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2014 becoming a fourth generation dentist in his family. Dr. Watson furthered his dental education by entering an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. This program provided him advanced training in fixed (crown & bridge), removable (dentures), and implant dentistry. Dr. Watson received his AEGD certificate in June of 2015.

When away from the office, Dr. Watson can be found bike riding, hiking, skiing, and wakeboarding. You may also find him attempting to play golf. Unfortunately, he has not been blessed with the Watson golf genes; they apparently all went to Tom and Bubba. He is also an avid Nebraska Cornhusker Football fan. Go Big Red!

Dr. Watson is the “middle” child of a medical family. His older sisters Jennifer and Michelle are a veterinarian and optometrist respectively, and his identical twin brother is currently an ophthalmology resident at the University of Minnesota.
