"Dr. Jan Belote is a wonderful Christian professional with a caring heart and attitude towards our patients and our staff," Dr. O'Keefe said. "Our reunion and combining of our offices has been so great for both of us and our patients. We have combined knowledge and experience that is better for all."

Dr. Belote served as state coordinator for the Association of Women Dentists and as alternate to the board of trustees for the Mississippi Dental Association. Since its inception in 1995, she has worked with the Donated Dental Services Program of Mississippi, an organization committed to providing dental care treatment to the elderly and those with special needs.

Dr. Jan Belote In the Community

Dr. Belote has been married to Charley Belote for 28 years. Charley is a cancer survivor who owns and operates Belote Contracting. They have one daughter, Gracey Cole Belote. Gracey is graduating from Brandon High School this year and plans to attend Millsaps College in the fall.

Dr. Belote attends St. Peter's Episcopal Church. She is active in the church and also at Gray Center, the Episcopal Camp and Conference Center based in Canton, Mississippi.

In her spare time, Dr. Belote enjoys reading, writing, walking, karate, youth work, water sports, snow skiing, travel, cooking, and crafts.

Two Highly Skilled Professionals Committed to Patient Care

Having two highly skilled dental care specialists at the practice will be a major benefit to all patients who visit Family Dental Care.

"Jan practices dentistry the way I do and we have worked together in the past," Dr. O'Keefe said. "She provides excellent dental care and believes in the continued growth of our practice through continuing her dental education as well as her spiritual growth."

Advanced Dental Care Techniques and Technology

Dr. O'Keefe also noted that the state-of-the-art technology at Family Dental Care will be especially helpful to those who undergo treatment. "We have a broader spectrum of dental techniques, which is an advantage to our patients. This normally means fewer referrals out of our practice."

"Danny has always kept current with the latest advancements and technology available, and it's rewarding to use equipment we have at this office," Dr. Belote said. "For example, I love using the dental microscope. My family laughs when I come home talking about what I was able to see through the microscope each day, but what I can see using the microscope improves my clinical outcomes, and that's no laughing matter."

Dr. Belote added that she was also excited by the practice's use of CEREC technology, a special CAD/CAM unit that can mill a customized dental crown from a digital impression in just a single visit to the practice. "It's really a facility to be proud of," she said.
