About Our Office


At Oxford Pediatric Dentistry, we offer the full spectrum of pediatric dental care. We focus on evidence-based dentistry and offer many fast, effective, and minimally invasive treatments. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease of childhood, and prevention is always our number one defense against dental decay. That’s why our team spends time educating children about the importance of proper oral hygiene.

Our team is trained to provide dental care to children from infancy through the teenage years. We are distinctly skilled in the care of special needs patients. We also offer cutting-edge, non-invasive procedures for the treatment of dental decay.

About Dr. Campbell

Dr. Jerry Campbell was born and raised in Collierville, TN. He spent his summers visiting his grandparents’ farm in Oxford and developed a love for the town and Ole Miss. Following in his parents’ footsteps, he attended Ole Miss where he met his wife, Billie Claire, and graduated with a Forensic Chemistry degree. He continued his studies at the University of Mississippi Medical Center where he received a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences before attending the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis. After graduating with honors and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, he completed his advanced education with a specialty in Pediatric Dentistry in Springfield, Missouri through New York University Langone. 

Dr. Campbell and his wife followed their hearts back to Oxford. He has been practicing as a pediatric dentist since then in North Mississippi. Owning his own practice in the town he loves has been a dream for years. The pandemic delayed that dream, but it has now come to fruition. 

Dr. Campbell is excited to offer pediatric dental services to the families of Oxford. He looks forward to staying on the cutting edge of pediatric dentistry through continuing education and participating in many state, regional, and national pediatric and general dental associations.


Dr. Campbell and his wife recently welcomed their first child, Lillie Grace. They have many wonderful furry family members including three Labrador Retrievers, three cats, two horses, and four goats! In his spare time, he enjoys cheering on the Rebels and many outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, and riding ATVs, as well as blacksmithing, traveling, and spending time with his family.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?


To become a specialist, the American Dental Association (ADA) requires pediatric dentists complete an extra two years of additional training after dental school. This focused training increases a dentists technical ability, specific knowledge of primary teeth, and behavior management skills, ensuring they are prepared to manage the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. A positive experience from the beginning, guidance for dental growth and development, and avoiding future dental problems is all paramount to lifelong oral health. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.


Primary teeth, or baby teeth, are important for proper chewing and eating, providing space for the permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position, and permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles. Primary teeth also affect the development of speech and add to an attractive appearance. While the front baby teeth last until 6-7 years of age, the back teeth (cuspids and molars) aren’t replaced until age 10-13. It is very important to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Neglected cavities can and frequently do lead to problems which affect developing permanent teeth.
