On March 15, 2019 Dr. Andrea Jennings was elected to membership in Omnicron Kappa Upsilon, the national honor society in dentistry. She was chosen for this distinction by Roseman University faculty based on her scholastic achievement, professionalism and service to others.
Andrea grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and is an avid sports fan. She attended Denison University in Granville, OH, where she played four years of collegiate soccer and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After college, Andrea spent a winter season in Breckenridge, working for the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center as a winter intern and adaptive ski instructor. Though she thoroughly enjoyed the experience living in Breckenridge and working at the BOEC, she decided at the end of the season to return to Ohio where her family resides, and eventually chose to pursue dental school. She earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Roseman University College of Dental Medicine in South Jordan, UT, and was presented with awards for Distinguished Professionalism as well as Excellence in General Dentistry by dental faculty upon graduation. Dr. Jennings then completed a General Practice Residency Program in Colorado at Denver Health Medical Center where she performed comprehensive dentistry and administered emergency/trauma dental care to a variety of ages and populations, including patients with special needs.
Dr. Jennings is a member of the American Dental Association, the Colorado Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. She is thrilled to be back in Summit County, as it has been a dream of hers to return to Breckenridge as a health care provider for the community. She is excited to meet members of the community and to get involved again with the BOEC on a volunteer basis. Andrea has enjoyed volunteer experiences that have ranged from teaching adaptive skiing for a Disabled American Veterans clinic to a dental/medical mission trip to Cotui, Dominican Republic. She looks forward to life in the mountains and future adventures skiing, cycling, hiking, paddling and camping. Dr. Jennings recently celebrated a two year anniversary with the Breckenridge Dental Group, having joined Dr. Warner as an associate in January 2017.
