Meet Dr. Jennifer Wade
Your caring Charleston periodontist.
Jennifer Wade DDS, MSD
Growing up in Christiansburg, VA, Dr. Wade was surrounded by dental professionals her entire life. Her grandparents were both dentists. In fact, her grandmother was one of very few female dentists at the time. So, you could say dentistry runs in the family.
She’s a board-certified periodontist and is certified in LANAP…Open a new window to the LANAP website…..
