Jennifer Caruso

DMD, FAGD

Dr. Caruso, known to her patients as "Dr. Jenny or Jenny", grew up in a very small town in Eastern North Carolina.  As a young child, Dr. Jenny had several influential dental experiences including root canal treatment and braces that quickly and easily inspired her to pursue dentistry.  Also, as a young girl, Dr. Jenny remembers her father telling her that she was 'very meticulous' and that she could use this skill as a dentist.  That idea stuck in her head as she studied at Kent School in Connecticut and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  In 2000, Dr. Jenny spent a life-changing year as a volunteer in Tucson, Arizona working as an AmeriCorps leader.  In 2006, she graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.   

Dr. Jenny is first and foremost passionate about helping people.  The oral health goals for her patients are comprehensive in nature.   She has a strong dedication to continuing education which allows her to better serve her patients.  Dr. Jenny has achieved Fellowship status with the Academy of General Dentistry and is involved in the Mastertrack program to earn her Masters with the Academy.  Dr. Jenny and her staff's mission is to provide an enjoyable, relaxing, and friendly environment for her patients.  

Dr. Jenny and her husband, Tyler, have two young sons, Wyatt and Blake.
