Meet Dr. Jessica Swoboda

Creating Optimal Oral Health

Each of my patients presents unique challenges: they come to our practice seeking a healthy mouth and smile, and we work with them to achieve that goal. Because we create patient-tailored treatment approaches, we’re able to address each person’s specific concerns in a way that works for them.

I thrive on the relationships I develop with my patients. Hearing their stories and learning who they are beyond the treatment chair is important to me. I emphasize clear and open lines of communication, and encourage each patient to talk with me about their concerns. The more I know, the better I can care for them. — Dr. Jessica Swoboda
