Jessica Williams

Lead Dental Assistant, EFDA

Jessica is from East Orange, New Jersey, but has resided in Georgia since 2003. After graduating from Dental Assistant school in 1998 her career took off with a passion for Oral Surgery and Cosmetic Dentistry. Her favorite procedure to help with is restoring anterior Crowns and Veneers because it can change a patient's smile and how they feel about themselves.  Giving a patient confidence with their new smile is the most rewarding.  Jessica is married with one child and two fur babies. Her favorite quote from Aristotle "Excellence is a habit."

Twenty years and counting, she is loving the journey that she is on.  She has built great relationships with patients over the years and will continue to connect in ways that are memorable.  Her secret to getting ahead is getting started!

Sheetal Gajjar

Insurance Coordinator
