Meet Dr. Jeannette Jimenez

I enjoy helping people. I feel like, in my profession, many people are scared or nervous when they hear they will need a root canal, because previously root canals have gotten a bad rap.

Making a patient feel comfortable and helping get them out of pain are my top priorities. When a patient leaves my office saying, “Man, that was the best root canal I have ever had,” or even a simple, “Thank you so much. That is not what I expected at all,” it makes my day better. It’s rewarding to know I was able to bring a good experience to something that has a rumor of being a terrible thing.

That dedication to patient care, to making endodontic treatment painless and free of worry, is shared by my team. Each person is knowledgeable, kind, and compassionate. They all work really hard to deliver our shared goal: making our patients feel at home and at ease in our care.

Education and Experience

I chose to become a healthcare professional because I am passionate about helping people lead healthier, happier lives. I have been a dentist for over 20 years and have loved every day and each interaction with my patients.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Puerto Rico and my Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) at the University of Puerto Rico School of Dental Medicine. I next completed a General Practice Residency (GPR) and Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) at Columbia University School of Dental Medicine. Remaining at Columbia, I then obtained my in-depth Endodontic Specialty training and residency.

As a practicing endodontist, my focus is always on the person who I am seeing and doing what is right for them. At my office, our motto is “Patients First,” and we hold ourselves to that commitment. We are honest, accommodating, and our quality is unbeatable. We have the latest technology at affordable prices and we continue to innovate.

We are a family here and we make sure our patients feel they are part of it. Knowing they are heard, valued, and respected can ease a person’s worries and reassure them that it will be okay.

Professional Memberships and Continuing Education

I am a member of the Georgia Dental Association and the American Association of Endodontics; with the latter I am on track to becoming a Diplomate of the organization. I also belong to the Spear Education Study Club in my community.

Through Spear, attending annual meetings, and taking continuing education courses multiple times a year, I keep current on the latest amazing advancements in endodontics. The specialty is very serious about research, which fosters innovation and produces new technologies, methodologies, and knowledge.

Patients benefit from my ongoing education as they are assured of receiving the most up-to-date treatment modalities utilizing the most advanced equipment.

Beyond the Practice

Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, I now live with my family in Marietta, Georgia. My husband Adrian and I have two daughters: Sarah who is in high school and Arianna who is in elementary school. Our family is rounded out with our malti-poo, Luna.

Above all, I am passionate about being there for my children. Time with them, and supporting their interests and activities, takes priority when I’m not seeing patients. I also enjoy exercising and traveling to visit my extended family as often as possible.
