Dr. Elizabeth Lucas was born and raised in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She attended Mississippi State University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences. Following her undergraduate education, Dr. Elizabeth attended the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi and received her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree. Dr. Elizabet then moved to Birmingham, Alabama to begin her one year General Practice Residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and since has made Alabama her home.
During Dr. Elizabeth’s time in dental school, she participated in many student organizations; such as, the Mississippi Association of Women Dentists, American Student Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. She served as her class’s representative for the School of Dentistry Ethics Council and was President of the Student Professionalism and Ethics Association. She also was awarded the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Student Award and the Dental Lifeline Network Outstanding Student Award.
Dr. Elizabeth met her husband Dr. Frankie Jones in dental school, and they married in April 2022. Frankie practices General Dentistry in Jasper and Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Dentistry is a family affair for Dr. Elizabeth, as both of her parents and sister are all general dentists practicing together in Mississippi. Watching the way her family cared for their community inspired Dr. Elizabeth to follow in their footsteps to become a dentist. When Dr. Elizabeth is not “talking teeth” with her family, she enjoys spending time with her two dogs (Kate and Petey), oil painting, spending time outdoors, and creating in the kitchen.
Dr. Elizabeth takes a personable and gentle approach to dentistry and strives to make her patients feel comfortable and heard in the dental chair. She values the relationships with her patients, and enjoys using her creative skills to design unique treatment plans catered to the patient’s specific needs.
Luma Dentistry’s focus on treating patients with the highest level of care in a tight-knit, growth promoting community is one of the many reasons why Dr. Elizabeth chose to join Luma Dentistry. Dr. Elizabeth is honored to be a part of the Luma Dentistry Community.
