Meet The Doctors
Please welcome Dr. Jessica Smith to our dental team! Dr. Quist selected her because of her excellent dental skills and genuine care for patients. She graduated from Loma Linda School of Dentistry in 2009. She is ecstatic to move back to California after practicing dentistry in freezing Alaska for the past 8 years. Dr. Jessica and her husband Kevin, along with their two sons Corbin (age 4) and Alden (age 2) explored the West Coast from Alaska to California on a four month RV road trip. They visited friends and family while deciding where to make their new home. In the end, the Central Coast of California was the one place that felt like home to them and they are thrilled to join our community. Kevin is a computer engineer and is excited to explore the local technology companies. Patient care runs in Dr. Jessica’s family, her sister is a pediatrician in Southern California. Dr. Jessica has even helped out in her sister’s office performing laser surgery to correct infant lip and tongue ties to improve breastfeeding.
