Dr. Jim Sands, is a General Dentist at our University Clinic, and brings over 17 years of comprehensive dental experience to the Shorewood Hills community.  Voted one of Madison’s top dentists since 2015, Dr. Sands is a seasoned professional dedicated to providing exceptional care.

Completing his studies with a BA in Psychology from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and a DDS from Creighton University School of Dentistry, Dr. Sands not only brings academic excellence to his practice but also instills a profound commitment to ongoing education.
