Jessica Jordan, DDS
Dr. Jessica Jordan hails from a small town outside of Nashville, Tennessee. She attended White House High School where she graduated Valedictorian. She then matriculated to Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Ky for undergraduate studies. While at WKU Jessica created and co-founded the university’s first dental pre-professional club. She named it the “Pre Dental Society”, and the club is still active today. Also, while at WKU, Jessica participated in Microbiology and Biology research that allowed her work to be published in the Journal of the Kentucky Academy of Science. Due to her interest in research, Jessica was given the opportunity to participate in a study abroad program in Belize, Central America. Dr. Jordan learned a great deal during her time in Belize, but most importantly the trip revealed her passion for traveling. Since then, Dr. Jordan has visited over 10 different countries across the world. After she graduated Cum Laude from WKU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and a minor in Business Entrepreneurship, Jessica moved to Memphis for Dental School at the University of Tennessee.
While at UT, Jessica participated in many clubs and activities. She was secretary of the Student National Dental Association, a delegate for the American Student Dental Association, a member of the Baptist Campus Ministries, and an American Association of Women Dentists member. In her second year of dental school, Dr. Jordan accompanied the Baptist Campus Ministry on a mission trip to Ecuador. This trip allowed her to provide care to an underserved community while spreading the message of Jesus Christ. The following year in dental school, Jessica was selected for a national program with the Indian Health Service. She spent the summer performing dentistry on an Indian reservation for the Swinomish Tribe of Seattle, WA. Shortly after that, Dr. Jordan graduated from UT with her DDS.
Although Dr. Jordan continued to live in Memphis after her graduation in 2015, she spent her first years out of school practicing in Arkansas. Dr. Jordan enjoyed her time working in Arkansas, however practicing in Memphis allowed her more time to spend with her fiancé. In December 2018, Jessica married her handsome fiancé, Marcus, an Air Force Veteran of 15 years. The newlyweds purchased their first home in midtown and enjoy traveling, concerts, and spending time together.
