Meet Dr. Jennifer Perkins

Dr. Jennifer Perkins didn’t start out as a dentist. After earning a degree from Louisiana State University, she taught AP biology and chemistry. She then decided to pursue a career as a dentist, which is something she’d always wanted to do. Dr. Perkins still uses many of the skills she developed as a high school teacher, though: patience, problem solving, and communication, among others. She can explain even complex procedures in easy-to-understand terms.

After earning her DDS from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, she spent five years in a group dental practice before buying her first practice in 2000. Five years of working at what she calls an “insurance-driven” practice made her realize that ownership would allow her to do what she really wanted: spend more time building close relationships with her patients. Dr. Perkins wants to offer dental care tailored to her patients’ individual needs.

After 22 years practicing dentistry, Dr. Perkins still gets excited about restoring a patient’s oral function. It’s even better when she can transform a patient’s appearance by helping them attain their “dream” smile. She takes special pride in her ability to relax anxious patients and build their confidence by using dental sedation to complete their treatment. For many patients, dental sedation is a real game-changer!

So she can offer the latest dental treatments and techniques, Dr. Perkins frequently pursues continuing education opportunities through her memberships in these professional organizations:

  • American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • American Dental Association
  • Alabama Dental Society
  • Huntsville-Madison County Dental Society
  • Eighth District Dental Society

Thanks to her extensive training and years of experience, Dr. Perkins offers a full spectrum of dental services at her Huntsville, AL dentist office, including:

  • General dentistry
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Orthodontics
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Oral surgery
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
