James A. Hosner DDS

I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in the small town of Vicksburg near Kalamazoo. I played the trumpet in band as well as basketball and tennis. After graduating with a B.A. from Kalamazoo College and my D.D.S. degree from the University of Michigan, I happily moved away from the cold to sunny Fort Myers in 1984.

My wife Tamara, and I love our 3 daughters, 1 son, and Jill the dog. We like taking family vacations to Disney World and national parks. I jog to stay in shape and like to play and watch tennis, basketball, Meeeeeechigan football, and catch a movie or two. I have enjoyed practicing dentistry in Lee County for over 36 years and especially like cosmetic procedures where I can use my artistic ability to improve smiles. GO BLUE!
