Dr. Jennifer Smith
Dr. Jennifer Smith joined the OX Orthodontix team with a background of valuable training and experience treating patients of all ages. She is proud to now be a part of OX Orthodontix, creating beautiful smiles and welcoming newcomers to our patient family!
Dr. Smith graduated Magna Cum Laude from Temple University with a bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in Spanish and then went on to receive her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania, with honors.
During her time at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Smith received several awards and was selected to complete a research fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in the Facial Reconstruction Center. This fellowship provided her with the opportunity to assist with the orthodontic treatment of patients with various craniofacial abnormalities and syndromes. She attributes her desire to pursue a career in orthodontics, in part, to this incredible experience.
After practicing general dentistry for several years, Dr. Smith returned to the University of Pennsylvania to earn a specialty certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Since completing this training, Dr. Smith has practiced in both orthodontic and pediatric dental offices in Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Maryland, providing comprehensive care to children, teens, and adults.
Dr. Smith originally hails from Philadelphia, PA, but currently resides in Howard County with her husband, Robert, and six-year-old son. When she’s away from the office, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, yoga and cooking.
