Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in Sacramento
Dr. Jonker has established a solid reputation as a personable and straightforward surgeon. "I believe in providing the highest quality surgical care for my patients, while maintaining a safe and friendly environment for everyone," he says.
"Over my 35 years of practice, I've learned that if you treat soft tissue well, it treats you well," he says. "Careful and complete surgery, rather than being in a hurry – that's really important. During your initial appointment, you can expect a careful evaluation of your problem. I'll give you a logical plan for treatment, as well as some alternatives. After your surgery, I provide continued observation and care until your healing is complete."
Dr. Jonker serves as the director of the Central Valley Dental Forum, a branch of the Seattle Study Club, which is dedicated to continuing dental education. He maintains hospital privileges with Saint Agnes Medical Center and HealthSouth Surgicenter.

He serves on the Board of Directors of the East Fresno Rotary Club and the Fresno Chapter of LIGA International (The Flying Doctors of Mercy). He is happily married with two daughters and one stepdaughter.
