Jennifer Henley, DDS
Dr. Henley also graduated from the LSU School of Dentistry, then went on to gain additional training in oral surgery techniques and removeable prosthodontics. Her focus is on the connection between oral health and systemic health, including how diet and exercise improve overall well-being. She is able to offer a comprehensive evaluation of her patients’ medical conditions and how they pertain to their oral health. A member of the Ark La Tex Academy of Dentistry, she also volunteers dental services for the Dental Lifeline Network. For two years, she served as a clinical faculty member at the Lamar University Department of Dental Hygiene.
Dr. Henley set her goal of becoming a dentist at age 2, and after 25 years in the field she is still excited to make a positive difference every day in the lives of her patients. She and her husband Ron have four children. Their daughter is teaching English in South Korea, and their three boys keep them extremely busy with sports and extracurricular activities. She finds time to serve as treasurer for the Loyola High School lacrosse team and is an avid supporter of Loyola football as well as a committee chair for the Loyola Parents’ Association. Additionally, she is an active member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, where she serves as a lector and volunteer with children’s ministries. In her spare time, she loves to travel and is a big fan of the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans.
