Upon graduation from high school Dr. Jennifer attended the University of Pittsburgh where she earned her Bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) in Neuroscience.

Dr. Jennifer is board certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and is a member of the following: American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, Dental Society of Western Pennsylvania, United States Dental Institute, and Academy of Laser Dentistry.

Dr. Jennifer's practice philosophy of highest possible quality of care is enabled by her love for children and a core belief that her patients should be treated as she would like her own children to be treated. When choosing to go into the healthcare profession, pediatrics was a natural fit for Dr. Jennifer, who eases her patients through treatment by singing songs, storytelling, and listening. Dr. Jennifer feels rewarded knowing she provided the best possible care, and of course, when she sees her happy patients showing off their beautiful and healthy smiles.

Dr. Jennifer resides in Wexford with her husband, Dave, and four children Zachary, Dominic, Rose and Anthony, where they enjoy spending time at a local park, swimming, or just playing in the backyard. Dr. Jennifer's favorite activities are jogging, fitness improvement, reading fiction novels, and going out for dinner and a movie.
