Jennifer Rowland : Dental Hygienist

I have been a RDH since 2005, graduation from John A. Logan in the Hygiene program, and attending the assisting program at JALC. Prior to that I received an associates in Dental Technology at SIUC in 2001. I have worked with Dr. Baker since he came here in 2007, and also worked with the preceding dentist, Dr. Brown, for almost a year before Dr. Baker came. I love Dental Hygiene and see a long and happy future in this wonderful career choice! When not at work I am a wife and a mom to 2 beautiful daughters doing all that needs to be done! I value family time and where they are, that is where you will find me! I also attend Church and teach Sunday school as well as childrens church. For fun I enjoy the local wineries and a great girls night out with friends.
