Dr. Jessica McConnell

I am excited to be the owner of Midtown Smiles Dental Care. A Raleigh native, I graduated from Athens Drive High School in 1983. From there, I went to NC State and graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science in zoology before earning my dental degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry in 1991.

For 25 years, I practiced in Fuquay-Varina at a practice that I bought in 1994 and sold in 2018. I thought that I was ready to retire but found that I missed dentistry and the relationships that went with it. I was lucky enough to find Midtown Smiles Dental Care at the right time.

There are so many things that I like about dentistry. I enjoy making people happy by enhancing their smiles. I enjoy making people feel better by getting them out of pain. And I enjoy improving the overall health of my patients by improving their dental health. Most importantly, I enjoy the relationships that I develop with my patients.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Kurt; my children, Isabella and Will; and my pets, Piper, Buckley and Zoe. I love to travel, read and run.
