Dr. Jennifer Meader has dedicated her professional life to helping people of all ages to achieve smiles that last a lifetime. And that means that not only do their smiles look great, but their teeth and jaws also work well together.
As a parent of teenagers, Dr. Meader appreciates the importance of good dental and orthodontic care (her husband, Paul, practices general dentistry in Mukilteo, Washington). Her greatest joy comes from being a mommy. Dr. Meader says “Before the day my daughter was born, my life was about me and what I wanted the world to give me. Since the birth of my first child, my life has been about what I can give to someone else. And that, I think, is why I have the best profession in the world.”
Dr. Meader’s journey as an orthodontist started in Eastern Kentucky, where she graduated as her high school’s Valedictorian. Following undergraduate studies at Lexington’s University of Kentucky, she continued her education at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry where she earned her Doctorate of Medical Dentistry. Following an additional three-year orthodontic residency at Morgantown’s West Virginia University, she earned her Master’s in Science while receiving her certificate as a specialist in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in 1993.
Dr. Meader enjoys living in the Puget Sound area and being involved in sponsoring local baseball and softball teams, along with other local organizations, for the past 20 years. When not crafting great smiles, she loves spending time with her husband and their two children, Olivia and Philip. She also enjoys tennis, cross-country skiing, and watching University of Kentucky basketball.
