Meet Dr. Jennifer Turner

I feel fortunate that I have been blessed with a gift and the ability to improve the quality of life of the children I treat, whether I am performing full mouth dental rehabilitation or examining an infant at their first dental appointment. I want each child I treat to grow up to be healthy and happy, with a great smile to show for it!

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a negative experience! Because of their young age, I have the unique opportunity to help shape my patients' views and opinions of dentistry, as well as educating them about their oral health so that they will understand the importance of a healthy smile as an adult!

My team is an extension of my philosophy. We treat each child as we would our own. By treating our patients with warmth and compassion, we help invite a more pleasant and comfortable experience for them. We also reward our cavity-free patients by hanging their picture on our cavity-free wall and entering their name in a drawing for a gift card. We also post a picture of our two cavity-free winners each month on the Our Winning Smiles page of our web site!

Education and Continuing Education

I attended the University of South Carolina where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, graduating cum laude. My dental education was completed at the Medical University of South Carolina, where I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. I continued on to the Medical College of Georgia where I received my Pediatric Dental Training.

My passion for staying up-to-the-moment means my patients can expect and receive the highest quality and most advanced care in my office. I am committed to excellence, especially when it comes to patient care. I became a board certified pediatric dentist in 2008, passing a voluntary written and oral examination validating my training and knowledge of pediatric dentistry. I participate in continuing education classes all over the country each year in an effort to stay informed on the most current topics in pediatric dentistry.

Experience

I am licensed to practice the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry in South Carolina and Georgia. I currently have hospital privileges at Self Regional Healthcare in Greenwood and MCG-Children’s Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia. I am also a part-time faculty member at the Medical College of Georgia-Department of Pediatric Dentistry. I give several presentations and lectures each year educating other dentists and healthcare providers about current topics and the clinical practice of pediatric dentistry.

I believe it is important to stay involved with the greater dental community. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, South Carolina Dental Association, and the Upper Savannah Dental Study Club.

In the Community

I, as well as my staff, participate in numerous events and charities including Give Kids a Smile Day, Children’s Dental Health Month, Walk for the Cure, Special Olympics, and other local programs. We also volunteer many hours educating children and their parents of the importance of good oral health.

Outside the Office

I am originally from Lancaster, SC, and currently reside in Greenwood with my husband, John, our two daughters, Margaret and Catherine, and our dog, Lucky. When I’m not spending time with my family and friends, you can find me at Carolina Gamecock Football games, sailing, traveling, and learning how to play the guitar!
