She is committed to our patients by helping them have a wonderful experience in our office. Not only do we strive for optimal periodontal health, we feel it is important for our patients to be comfortable and at ease during their experience with us. Many of our patients are like family; she loves hearing their stories between visits. As a team, we love to laugh and have a good time both in and out of the office.

Dr. Britten and Meg met at the University of Florida, where they both received their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Yes, they are lifetime Gators!

Jen

​ As one of Dr. Britten’s surgical dental assistants, Jen strives to make our patients feel comfortable as she understands that coming to the dentist can definitely be an experience that causes anxiety!

Jen, along with her husband Brian and son Connor, relocated to Florida from New Jersey to be closer to her father. Outside of the office she enjoys reading, swimming and doing fun things with her son.
