Jay Lala is an Iowa native originally from Cedar Rapids. Jay attended Mount Mercy College and the University of Iowa Dental school where he graduated in 1988. Jay completed his residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry in 1989 in Iowa City. In 1993 Jay opened Central Park Dentistry here in Mason City and quickly became recognized as o­ne of the top dentists in Northern Iowa.


When Jay isn’t seeing his dental patients he enjoys snow skiing, water skiing, sporting clays, golf, ATVs, and hunting with his Golden Retriever. If Tommy Bahama ever holds an amateur golf tournament we’re pretty certain Jay will be there sporting his best Magnum P.I. inspired outfit by Tommy B. Go Jay! If you are a current patient or plan o­n becoming o­ne you’ll know (or quickly learn) what we mean by that comment! Jay is not your typical strait laced dentist. Be prepared to smile or even laugh during your dental visit. Jay’s carefully selected staff and partners are all receptive to patient’s fears and concerns.


Going to the dentist should be enjoyable and no more stressful than getting a hair cut. Jay learned early o­n how to treat fearful patients and this is just o­ne of many attributes that make Central Park Dentistry such a successful practice today. Dr. Lala will be working in Sheffield on Thursdays.
