Dagon with a tie Thanks for sharing your expertise Dagon H.C. Jones, DDS lives and practices dentistry in Davis.
Received his B.S. in Biochemistry with high honors from UC Davis before attending UCSF school of dentistry as a Regents Scholar.
Married with two teenage sons.
Enjoys Power kites (For which he holds the 12th place world buggy speed record), Board Games, Comics, Roleplaying Games, hiking, home brewing, and other stuff too.
My full name is Dagon Hurricane Casey Jones, I was named after the ancient god Dagon. Dagon was a god of grain and possibly fish. My parents were older hippies and my mom thought a fish god was appropriate because my zodiac sign is pisces. My middle name Casey, is from his father's nickname "Casey Jones" and Hurricane was chosen by my dad because it sounded cool. Many people recognize the name Dagon from the H.P. Lovecraft short story and the Cthulhu mythos.
There is also the town of Dagon not too far from Davis which, according to Wikipedia, contains no homes.

Mystery Picture I love this game. I walk around town and look at things thinking "That would be a great mystery picture"

2010-05-21 21:24:06 Is there theatre in the round in Dabis anywhere but the old stock pavillion? —JasonAller
2010-05-22 11:25:37 I don't use facebook, I would be happy to have you touch base ♥ —StevenDaubert
2010-05-22 21:12:42 Ah! It's a very very small world. Especially when you live in Davis! —WesHardaker
2010-05-23 15:29:28 Could we keep the photo from 2006 and add the current photo? With different file names so that it is possible to see both at the same time? —JasonAller
2010-05-23 15:42:21 Thanks —JasonAller
2010-05-23 16:58:29 I went thru several version, one having a bigger tooth, then I realized I could make it pretty nifty with the circle machine —StevenDaubert
2010-05-24 23:34:15 Thanks for the feedback....keeping tomatoes watered in small pots is a challenge. Every time these new tomato-growing gadgets come along, that is the first thing I assess: is the soil volume big enough for Sacramento Valley summer conditions? —DonShor
I will be bringing back some abalone from Fort Bragg, likely more than I can eat. If anyone wants some, post here and I will do my best to get some to you. I cant sell it so it will be FREE!
2010-05-29 19:28:12 Abalone! Yes, please! —DonShor
2010-05-29 19:38:58 I'd love some abalone! —WilliamLewis
2010-05-29 19:52:36 oooooh memememe! Abalone please! —OliviaY
2010-05-30 10:34:15 I used to chauffeur my mom's love interest (at the time) on his abalone diving adventures and in return for driving and lugging his weights to and from the beach I'd get an entire abalone to myself. Those were some good times!
We should have another wiki BBQ so you can bring some abs and share the love! —JenniferCook
2010-05-30 20:38:39 I will have about 3 or 4 abalone to spare. they will all be live (or recently dead) and in the shell. email me your phone number to dagonjones at gmail.com I will call you when I get home on monday and you can come pick them up from my home in east Davis. —DagonJones
I'll be at the shop in the morning and at oxford circle for a shop bbq at 4pmish. If you're able, bring the abalone by. Sorry I missed the wiki bbq, but it was my son's black belt test and we were not in any shape to bbq. you can stay and enjoy some short ribs. —Aaron.Curtin
2010-05-31 23:27:39 Thanks for the abalone! I pan fried it in butter and olive oil and seasoned it with lemon, salt, and pepper. Delicious! I'm going to bread the rest tomorrow and see how that turns out. —WilliamLewis
2010-06-01 22:15:10 I hate it when people call Davis wiki "Wikipedia" or "Davis Wikipedia" —DagonJones
2010-06-02 00:58:24 Why do you think its such a bad comparison? Obviously we have some different conventions, but we are similar too and I'm curious how people perceive the similarities and differences depending on their experiences with one or the other. WilliamLewis says that it would imply we require NPOV for example, but I would expect this to be understood as not a universal convention of wikis. What do you think? —NickSchmalenberger
2010-06-02 09:32:36 I agree that the Myspace pages are definitely her, but I was specifically referring to the Facebook links. I don't think that's her or her family, and the only confirming evidence besides the profile pic was a "Scott" with a different last name. —MIK
2010-06-03 09:55:02 psst... the istockphoto watermark is visible —JasonAller
2010-06-03 10:40:31 I drew the sprout used in the Seed logo. Feel free to use it. Or hit up wpclipart.com for Public Domain art. —JabberWokky
2010-06-03 11:15:46 Very cool! thanks! Plus my son is eternally grateful to you for the abalone.... —DonShor
2010-06-03 11:42:57 I need to talk to you about my teeth... should I just stop by your office later? —JenniferCook
2010-06-03 20:46:59 Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for the abalone... it was wonderful! We cleaned it that night and I seasoned it with just salt, pepper, lemon zest, and minced garlic. Seared it in olive oil and plated over rice. Delicious!!! Everyone enjoyed it. My kids liked it until I explained to them what an abalone was. —Aaron.Curtin
2010-06-04 08:42:52 AlexanderHo just showed me how to make them last night :) It's just a table with a background color. The image goes in the left cell of the table, with text in the right. You can use [[BR]] to create a line break in the text so the table stays nice and narrow. To see an example (and get the color), you can edit one of the Include pages, like TimeSink. You can use that or one of the others as a template, switching up the image and the text. —TomGarberson
2010-06-04 08:45:43 Oh, also... I'm not sure about free drawing tools, but [www.irfanview.com Irfanview] is a fantastic, simple, free image editor and converter. Stuff like cropping, resizing, shrinking file size, converting file types, and so on are very easy with it. It doesn't have any tools for drawing/color, though (that I know of). —TomGarberson
2010-06-04 09:01:22 http://www.gimp.org/
Supposed to be as versatile as Photoshop, but it's free. —hankim
2010-06-04 10:54:22 I use GIMP (which Han recommended up above). If you do an image in MS Paint, I'd be happy to color match it. If you use GIMP, I have a "Davis Wiki Notice Palette" of colors to work with. —JabberWokky
2010-06-04 12:35:41 I'm sorry, but I don't find any levity in legal threats. —WilliamLewis
2010-06-08 20:03:35 Sure. It's that professorial trigger itch. —CovertProfessor
2010-06-08 22:48:22 If he is 26 now and saw it in the late 80s he would have been at most 6 years old, right? —JasonAller
2010-06-08 22:58:35 The addition of that information to the other page might be a good idea. There was a LOT of context missing. —JasonAller
2010-06-08 23:13:16 Ever heard of a frat toga party using tiki torches? I certainly don't claim that Davis doesn't have the same problems that everywhere else does. —JasonAller
2010-06-08 23:19:53 I'm willing to give a six year old a lot of credit, even memories twenty years later, but I'm going to keep my mind open to other interpretations. First graders lack the benefits of experience and if you sit and talk with enough of them you can learn a lot and at the same time appreciate that they have a vastly different set of filters for viewing the world. —JasonAller
2010-06-09 17:00:45 Where do you think I could find a "quite neighborhood with extra insulation"?? Who wouldn't want that?? —CovertProfessor
2010-06-11 10:07:17 That is a great review. —JabberWokky
2010-06-11 13:31:52 The breaded abalone turned out ok. The problem is that I cooked them a bit too long and they turned out a bit tougher than they should have. Still delicous.
I've got the skirt frozen, still. I'm looking for a good soup recipie to use the skirt with. Any ideas? —WilliamLewis
2010-06-17 13:09:35 ;__; —StevenDaubert
2010-06-17 14:15:21 yeah, it's a crying guy ¬_¬ I've been supplanted —StevenDaubert
2010-06-17 23:56:15 I did mine on mspaint as well, it just didn't make the cut
hence the cryface ♥
I did a double take, I didn't remember it being so symmetrical and the tooth having the shading it did... —StevenDaubert
2010-06-17 23:57:46 did you make and erase part of the outer circle? I did bendy line freehand —StevenDaubert
2010-06-28 22:31:22 Just checking on how the bike is running. —Aaron.Curtin
2010-06-29 10:46:57 There was a LONG running mystery picture of a curved metal grate material. People started flailing about, trying to figure it out through wild guesses. I swore it was a bench (I still think there are benches made from the same material with roughly the same curve). Turned out to be a bottle recycling bin. Shortly thereafter, there was a similar metal mesh, and I thought it might be a bench. So now when one goes to the point where people have kind of stalled out, I toss out "bench". —JabberWokky
2010-07-17 14:01:50 rode by your office yesterday on the way to the library, I was pleasantly surprise —StevenDaubert
2010-07-26 23:06:54 Well, I must say I've been walking around that park since, um, longer than I'd care to admit since it would show my age. But I'd never noticed that particular feature before either. —WesHardaker
2010-08-01 22:49:59 I'm always fine with anybody editing my words on the wiki (although please remove the attribution if it's a really bit change). I used the term porn because that was what was being discussed. And it was a series of sexually charged erotic photos that were marketed as such, which readily fits into the classification. There is some really nice and tasteful pornography out there, and I think labeling it as such shouldn't diminish the artistic merit, just as there are some quite excellent commercial illustrators out there whose work clearly has artistic merit. For instance Alphonse Mucha and J. C. Leyendecker are clearly advertisements and wonderful art. The label of pornography shouldn't be negative any more than the advertising work of Mucha or Leyendecker. —JabberWokky
2010-09-27 14:06:47 Thanks for fixing my bold problem! Was it an easy fix? —matiasek
2010-09-28 09:43:20 No formatting for you! —TomGarberson
2010-10-13 09:11:05 That's a little large for an include. The idea is pretty good; at one point I considered a dinosaur. I just thought the parrot was a bit more subtle. —JabberWokky
2010-10-13 14:53:37 Dodo idea was awesome. —hankim
Reverted it back. I still think it's rather large compared to the other Includes. -jw
Why not just make it smaller, then? —cp
Horrible, petty reasons. :) Mostly because I really like the way the parrot turned out, I quite like the Monty Python reference, and I'm sorry to see it go. If nobody else resizes it, I'll retool the dodo later to match the others, but I was quite taken by how well that parrot image fit what I was aiming at (the other one I really like is the Andrew Jackson). But then, it's Dagon and Han's wiki too, which is fine by me. (When I set up my Davis Wiki, it'll have PARROTS! And FREE COOKIES AND MILK!!!) ;-P -jw
Well, I like the parrot, too. Any Monty Python reference is a good reference. So, I'm torn. For what it's worth, I miss the little green seed, too. But maybe that's just me. —cp
2010-10-15 14:46:14 Good friend is stupidly living with terrible jaw paint as a result of a) impacted molars or b) deep cavities
How much should he bring to a dentist to get it inspected, not work on? —StevenDaubert
2010-10-30 00:33:08 not off top but I do know of what your talking about ¬_¬
If I'm in that neck of the woods I will look at the address —StevenDaubert
2010-11-03 18:40:08 Where did you get that Zombie Baptist picture from? Looks a lot like the one I took. —jimstewart
2010-11-09 09:50:18 If you ask me, getting an anteater beats using ant traps. I'm sure Bekka knows someone at the vet school with connections to the anteater black market. Lemme know, I'll hook you up... but keep it on the DL. —TomGarberson
2010-12-03 01:55:04 Lord Dagon, I worship your effigy in my darkened cellar. —ScottMeehleib
2010-12-06 16:57:47 It's a private bar on the B Street Alley... mostly a late-night spot, but also host to lots of killer parties with live music... follow the music and drop-in, most of the regulars don't bite. —KemblePope
2011-01-11 16:34:10 Dagon is a cool dude. —JasperD
2011-01-20 23:37:28 Haha yeah, he's pretty cool. He mentioned that you recognized my name, and I said, "good, i'm finally becoming famous......or infamous." —JoePomidor
2011-01-30 21:55:32 Thanks for the heads up, but we used to watch Better Off Ted while waiting for everybody to arrive for a RPG somebody ran last year. The Jabberwocky presentation was great. Wasn't that the one with the roof garden as the subplot? I have (by coincidence) the same mugs they use at Veridian, black with red interiors. I kind of want to get some "Veridian" labels made to go on the sides. Fun series. I worked at a wildly successful startup that was purchased by a large financial organization that was eerily similar to Veridian. —JabberWokky
2011-02-02 10:57:17 It looks good to me. JW's addition is a good one, but it's probably just fine either way. —TomGarberson
2011-02-14 14:40:26 Hey Dagon, swing by the shop when you get a chance. I have some Dentistry questions for you. —Aaron.Curtin
2011-04-05 19:21:58 I know you're a homebrewer.
I've got 500 g of this stuff. I'm probably not going to use it all. Interested in some champagne yeast? —WilliamLewis
2011-04-25 20:47:27 Good, I am glad that you're planning on going! I wish I could, but even if I didn't have this Covert problem, I would still be out of town in any case. —CovertProfessor
2011-05-07 18:34:55 Nice to see you in person finally! —StevenDaubert
2011-05-08 22:18:10 If I come to you for dental work, which one will I end up looking like? —TomGarberson
2011-05-09 03:50:12 For sure!
Drinking is not my forte but I would love to make an exception
we can go to BnB and get pear cider, or some stone brewery
I could even harass my better half into joining us >:D —StevenDaubert
2011-05-09 08:18:00 Those orc teeth are revolting and awesome, but the werewolf teeth are dead on perfect. I'd be surprised if you couldn't make a whole bunch of custom fit vampire teeth if you advertised: vampire books are still selling like hotcakes at Borders. It seems like the trend is still going strong. —JabberWokky
2011-05-09 10:34:37 For the SCA, I'm all about history. It's part of the fun, because that's the hobby. That said, I do certainly enjoy fantasy as well, and have a Troll costume I've worn more than once, complete with a big green and gold cloak and a ragged, worn looking foam axe I built myself using a wooden handle from Ace Hardware downtown, foam board and paint from The Paint Chip. I put it together for a character I played in Dreamer's Ball. —JabberWokky
2011-05-19 10:37:41 That sounds like a good idea, although I'm not sure whether I'll get around to it in the near future. Most of the info is already on here one way or another, but it would be good to have it all in one place. Maybe a separate header on Bicycling Tips? —TomGarberson
2011-06-08 18:12:05 My family has several doctors who are friends of the family, many who are a generation older than I and who have retired or are retiring after a lifetime of practice. A perennial favorite topic during holidays was the pharmacological activity of grapefruits and how it was often a culprit in odd cases, even after years of daily consumption with no problems. It can even cause spontaneous hallucinations (which are rare, but I suppose doctors tend to hear about them), which got the wry observation that if the occasional side effects could be predicted, it would be a much more popular fruit. —JabberWokky
2011-08-15 19:24:53 Sure thing! —MeggoWaffle
2011-08-22 09:30:28 Thank you so much Dagon. Like I said, wished our meeting was under different circumstances, but the best part of the visit for me was your attitude. Never once condescending or with an "I told you so" attitude (even though you have been telling me to get in there for a couple of years now). Looking forward to our next meeting, in or out of the office. —Wes-P
2011-11-29 16:17:54 I am a staunch supporter of your observation re: Pho King. —JabberWokky
2011-12-16 14:12:11 was an orthodontist who no longer practices how does that sound?
what about waiting till it's re certification time THEN changing it to was —StevenDaubert
2011-12-16 15:52:33 why would you care to detract from the wiki? —StevenDaubert
2011-12-16 15:52:39 ??? —StevenDaubert
2012-01-05 14:18:30 I *do* hope you realize what an outstanding and wonderful public service you're providing about a topic that is confusing and scary to many. And also something those people need to know about. You're really helping the community. I've probably mentioned this before, but I figure you should be lauded once a year for Dental Questions. —JabberWokky
2012-02-03 12:13:38 the local rancher in woodland Yolo Beef or whatnot doesn't have tallow? How about the UCD meat lab? —StevenDaubert
2012-04-23 21:10:35 some EDH? —StevenDaubert
2013-05-20 12:40:52 You have opened a can of worms. Wait... are worms cute? Doesn't matter... a can of worms!!!
(Great idea for a page!) —JabberWokky
Are you not down or what Bro? Hank isn't cause he is "out of town" after "graduating" ~SD
