Jessica Kidwell (Dental Assistant/Patient Coordinator)

I moved to the DC area from California with my husband who just retired from the military and my son Jayden. I was also in the U.S. Army before making the transition to the dental field. Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine working with a better group of people! Everyone is so nice and patient, and they’ve really helped me feel at home. I enjoy helping patients feel better about their dental care by providing a calm atmosphere and getting to know them on a more personal level.

I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, cooking and getting to know the DC area.
