Meet Dr. Smith

Dr. Jennifer Smith was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA.  She attended Temple University, obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.  She continued her education at the University of Pennsylvania, earning a Doctorate of Dental Medicine, graduating at the top of her class.  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’s interest in orthodontics led her back to the University of Pennsylvania to complete her residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.   Since graduating in 2013, Dr. Smith has practiced in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland, providing a wide range of orthodontic treatments to patients of all ages. 

Her professional affiliations include the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, Maryland Dental Association, and Maryland State Society of Orthodontists.


Dr. Smith currently resides in Howard County with her husband and two children. When she’s away from the office, she enjoys traveling, yoga, trying new restaurants and spending time with family and friends. 


She is thrilled to be joining AGO and looks forward to working with the team to create beautiful smiles and incredible experiences for our patients!
