Jennifer Fields, DDS
Welcome to Simply Smiles! Thank you for choosing our office for your family's comprehensive dental care. I am excited to have the opportunity to be your dentist. Dentistry is an ideal profession in my mind. I love the way that it blends art with science, while giving me the opportunity to work with my hands and meet a wide variety of patients every day.
I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and graduated from The Blake School in 2001. Following this, I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating with distinction with a B.S. in Biology and Certificate in Business in 2005.
After receiving my undergraduate degree, I continued my studies at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, where I obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2009 and have practiced ever since as a full-time general dentist in both private practice and public health settings. This has given me the opportunity to gain invaluable experience working with patient populations that have a wide variety of dental needs. It has included seeing many children, treating an assortment of dental emergencies, and providing comprehensive care with a preventive-based approach. I focus on providing patients with thorough examinations, and enjoy explaining treatment options, and educating patients on how to achieve optimal and lasting oral health. Delivering high-quality care in a comfortable setting is always my number-one priority.
As an active member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry, I value the importance of lifelong learning. I have completed more than 450 hours of continuing education since graduation and am working towards my Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and have taken courses on a wide variety of topics, including completion of the University of Minnesota's Post-Graduate Program for Esthetic Dentistry.
Outside of the office, I enjoy all aspects of outdoor life in the Pacific Northwest. You can find me hiking, waterskiing, kayaking, downhill skiing, scuba diving, and exploring the many beautiful areas nearby with my husband, Derek. We are fairly new to Washington and love to cook while entertaining family and friends. I am especially excited about all of the fresh fish and local produce that this area has to offer!
