Certifications and Continuing Education: 200 hours American Orthodontic Society1, Invisalign, Implant Seminars, Creating Patient Loyalty
12 years in dentistry, 9 years with Family Dentistry
Dr. Jernigan completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2000 from the University of Memphis and subsequently graduated from dental school in 2005 from the University of Tennessee College of Health Sciences in Memphis. Upon completing his education, Dr. Jernigan set his sights on Dallas and soon began practicing dentistry with a well-known corporate dentistry group. After spending three years sharpening his skills, he believed he could provide better patient care clinically and administratively at his own practice. He founded Family Dentistry in 2008 (originally known as Smile Builders Dental Center and then Tu Dentista). Although our name has changed to better reflect the communities he serves, his philosophies on education, prevention and an exceptional patient experience have remained constant. He is proud of the practice and reputation he has built and is extremely proud of his team – several of whom have been with him since the beginning. When not taking care of patients, Dr. Jernigan enjoys traveling. Scuba diving in Mexico and snow skiing in Colorado are two of his favorite past-times.
