Dr. Jodi Tenney was born in Ohio but considers herself a Texan after moving here at age 10. She grew up in Plano, Texas and attended college at Texas A&M University in College Station. Upon finishing her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences, Dr. Jodi went on to complete Dental School here in Dallas at Texas A&M Health Sciences Center/Dental School. She then spent two additional years there obtaining a specialty degree in Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Jodi has lived in the Stonebridge Ranch area in McKinney for about 15 years. She has three children that have grown up here as well. Ethan, the oldest, attends University of Arkansas, Olivia, the middle, attends Florida State University, and Rowan, the youngest, attends McKinney Boyd HS. They also have 3 dogs, two Goldendoodles and a Havanese.
In Dr. Jodi’s free time, she enjoys running, swimming, and cycling, and has even competed in a few Half Ironman Triathlons. She and the kids love to go skiing together and spending time at the beach as well.
Working with children has always been a passion for Dr. Jodi. She draws from her motherly experiences with her own children to be able to provide compassionate care to her patients. In the past few years, she has also gone on to take several additional courses in working with the CO2 laser to provide top notch soft tissue surgical care to her patients. Even her little newborn patients have benefitted from this “gentler” type of service for the tongue and lip frenectomies that Dr. Jodi can now provide. The office purchased its own state of the art LightScalpel CO2 laser a few years ago and is one of the few offices to have this great tool in the north Texas area! Dr. Jodi is now able to perform everything from frenectomies and gingivectomies, to removal of gum lesions with little to no bleeding at all!
