What an INCREDIBLE achievement!!! 👏 Trying to find adequate words [or where to even begin] in expressing appreciation for her many contributions and commitments over those years is extremely difficult, as her part of our whole is exceptionally remarkable!

Jenn has had a dedication to the practice that is truly a source of inspiration and is profoundly valuable! She is a delight to work alongside of and her experience as well as, knowledge of dentistry both clinically and administratively is as impressive as her effortless kindness and positivity! From the patients whom she considers family as she's been a part of their lives over these many years, to our staff who looks (up) to her for guidance and an unwavering support.

If you know Jenn you've experienced first hand her contagious optimism and eternal smile! Jenn can always find a solution to any situation and approaches every task with zeal, only wanting THE BEST for the patients and practice! Over 25 years Jenn has become such a solid part of what our practice exemplifies, we adore her and she is absolutely one of the greatest things about Weston Dental! 🎉🙌💜🦷
