Orthodontist Dr. Jimmy Glenos is a native of Florida, having grown up in Orlando. He earned a Bachelor of Science in zoology with honors at the University of Florida. During his undergraduate years, he became very interested in dentistry while volunteering at Shands Teaching Hospital at the College of Dentistry in Gainesville.
Dr. Glenos attended the University of Florida College of Dentistry, obtained a Doctorate of Dental Medicine, and was one of the first few students to graduate early — in less than four years. During this time, he developed a love for orthodontics for children, teens, and adults while working in the department of orthodontics.
He went on to practice family dentistry in St. Augustine and was selected to attend the two-year postdoctoral program in orthodontics at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where he earned his certification as a specialist in orthodontics. Upon completion, Dr. Glenos returned to St. Augustine to establish the first full-time orthodontic office, and since then, has enjoyed creating beautiful smiles for many local dentists, their families and staff, and adults and children in the community.
Dr. Glenos is a board-certified orthodontist for children, teens, and adults, which means he has achieved the highest possible level of recognition as an orthodontic specialist. This requires the orthodontist to undergo an additional series of high-level examinations, both written and oral, and present clinical cases to expert examiners of the board during a clinical exam.
Only about 20% of all orthodontists ever achieve this designation. Choosing a board-certified orthodontist helps ensure a caregiver that is committed to the highest standards of treatment and exemplifies a practitioner’s commitment to continue to stay abreast of the latest advances and excellence in patient care.
Dr. Glenos was recently named among the “Top Orthodontists in North Florida” by Jacksonville Magazine. The recommendation identifies him as having reached the highest level of ethical standards and achievement.
Below are some of the organizations of which Dr. Glenos is a member:
- Florida Association of Orthodontists, past president
- St Johns Orthodontic Study Club, past president and charter member
- Southern Association of Orthodontists
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Board of Orthodontics, College of Diplomates
- St Augustine Dental Society, past president
- American Dental Association
- Smiles Change Lives
- Rotary Club of St. Augustine

Dr. William “Jimmy” Glenos also enjoys volunteering his services at the Wildflower Clinic in St Augustine. He and his wife Karen have two children and a cat named Kitty. They are members of Flagler Memorial Presbyterian Church, where they have both served in various leadership positions.
Dr. Glenos is a supporter and member of many local clubs and organizations, and is involved in numerous team and club sponsorships for the local schools and the community. Besides anything to do with orthodontics, his other interests include travel and spending time with Karen, family, and friends, fishing, hunting, water skiing, kiteboarding, and attempting to fix anything that breaks!
