Jared T. Kent, DMD
Being a dentist affords me the opportunity to help those in need, and to make a positive difference in their lives. I wake up every morning grateful to be able to do what I do on a daily basis, and I look forward to building relationships of trust with my patients and their families. I love to meet new people, and being a dentist allows me to meet new people every day. I am proud to know that patients trust me to give them the best treatment possible; I will never take that trust for granted.
Although I take my career seriously, I try to not take myself seriously. I enjoy speaking with my patients, getting to know them, and sharing a joke or two. In my experience this creates a comforting atmosphere to those patients who may be a bit nervous going to the dentist. I am rewarded when my patient leaves the practice smiling.
Since I grew up playing competitive team sports, I learned from firsthand experience the importance of working together to meet a goal. Every member of the Gwinnett Family Dental Care team plays an important role. We all work hard together to achieve the same goal: Exceptional Patient Care!
