Dr. Jennifer DeCota is a general dentist, who previously practiced in the office, with a passion for treating children. This led her to limit her practice to primarily children, with a focus on early intervention of risk assessment based treatment. She developed a 20-year preventative plan designed to interactively manage dental risk factors and deliver children to adulthood without dental problems. Not having to manage dental problems, which will have to be maintained for the rest of the child's life, sets the child up for a lifetime of good dental health. Dr. Jen has been a member of the Seattle Study Club and has taken courses at The Dawson Center and The Scottsdale Center. Even though she is not currently practicing, she remains a member of the St. Louis Dental Society, Missouri Dental Association, and American Dental Association. She is also an active member of F.O.R.C.E., the first and only extended orthodontic continuing education program patterned after a graduate school education and presented by qualified, credentialed specialists with clinical and university experience.
