Meet Dr. Melissa Jentz-Cote
Dr. Melissa Jentz-Cote grew up in Buffalo Grove, IL and moved to Geneva with her husband Mike to start the dental practice of her dreams. She attended Indiana University in Bloomington for undergrad where she received a BS in Biology. Dr. Jentz-Cote then went on to the College of Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She then became an associate in a busy practice in Lake Zurich, along with teaching in the emergency department at the UIC College of Dentistry. Dr. Melissa has been growing the Geneva Family Dental practice for nearly 20 years while nurturing her family as well. Mike and Dr. Melissa are the proud parents of their beautiful daughter Jordan Ann, now in middle school, who keeps them busy and active. Maybe one day she will take over Geneva Family Dental! Outside of work, Dr. Melissa loves walking her dog, playing tennis and pickleball, and shopping at farmers markets.
Dr. Jentz-Cote chose Geneva to open her practice because the people are so wonderful and genuine, the town is lively and beautiful, and Geneva is where she wanted to settle down, raise a family, and grow a family dental practice that she and the community can be proud of. She is very active in the community, volunteering to teach grade schoolers about dentistry during dental health month along with mentoring future young dentists. She is also involved with the Geneva Chamber of Commerce along with supporting many of the Geneva athletes including girls softball and boys basketball. Over the past several years, Dr. Jentz-Cote started having Geneva Family Dental support one local charity a month to help bring awareness to needs in the community. Dr. Jentz-Cote is so proud of her growing practice and is so happy to have such wonderful patients. Geneva Family Dental has grown so fast and the community has embraced us with open arms!
