Jennifer Fong, D.D.S.

Endodontist

Born and raised in San Francisco, California, I attended San Francisco University High School and graduated in 2000.  My education continued at the University of California, Davis, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Genetics while being a member of the intercollegiate tennis team.  The health sciences were always an interest of mine and after exploring various health care professions through internships, I made the decision to pursue dentistry.  In 2007, I earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry.  After graduation, I furthered my dental education by completing a one-year General Practice Residency at the Veterans Affairs, Palo Alto in 2008.  The next three years were spent practicing general dentistry in the San Francisco Bay Area.  While general dentistry was enjoyable, I found Endodontics to be one of the most challenging, yet satisfying aspects of dentistry.  After electing to pursue a career in Endodontics, I spent two years in Boston and earned my Endodontics specialty certificate at the Tufts Postgraduate Endodontics residency program in 2013.  Currently, I am a diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics, and a member of the American Association of Endodontics, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and San Mateo County Dental Society.  Dentistry aside, I enjoy reading, tennis, swimming, cooking, playing outdoors, and spending quality time with friends and family.
