Dr. Jennifer Loveland, DMD
Dr. Jennifer Loveland, DMD was born and raised outside of Yellowstone National Park in Rexburg, Idaho. As the daughter of a dentist, Dr. Jen knew she would one day be in the dental field. Dr. Jen attended Idaho State University where she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 2006. As she practiced as a dental hygienist for 5 years, the desire to do more dentistry continued to grow. Dr. Jen attended the inaugural class of Roseman University of Health Sciences in Salt Lake City, Utah and graduated in 2015. She practiced one year in Salisbury, NC working for Dr. Richard Dest, providing a broad spectrum of dentistry.
As a mother of four, Dr. Jen knows how to care for children as if they were her own. Her oldest boy was diagnosed with autism in 2011 and understands the challenges many parents are faced with in today’s busy and demanding world of trying to raise children.
In her free time (not much when you are a working mother!), Dr. Jen loves to spend time with her immediate and extended family. Much of her time is spent preparing for the upcoming holidays by creating and making home decor with her daughters. Dr. Jen also loves to play the piano and the violin and was a talented basketball player. Dr. Jen grew up fishing on Yellowstone Lake with her father and loves the opportunity to get outdoors, not to mention finding a comfy recliner to read a good book.
Thank you for allowing our family to take care of your family’s dental needs!
