A native of Canada, Dr. Howell completed her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Genetic Engineering at McMaster University and her Master of Science in Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University. A research opportunity at the National Institute of Drug Abuse in Baltimore, Maryland, brought her to the United States, where she pursued drug addiction studies while her husband completed his Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins.

An avid lover of science, Dr. Howell felt her research career was want for one critical element: the ability to directly impact human health.

Having worked as a dental assistant for several years during high school, she revisited the prospect of dentistry as a career that would allow her to fulfill these passions. After several shadowing sessions and discussions with local dentists, Dr. Howell applied to dental school and has never looked back.

Graduating Doctor of Dental Surgery, Magna Cum Laude, from the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 2010, Dr. Howell subsequently completed the Harvard-BWH-MGH General Practice Residency. Then she was offered a position at the Massachusetts General Hospital’s dental group as an attending and general dentist, where she oversaw dental residents and treated both healthy and medically compromised patients. Her husband’s appointment as faculty at NYU Langone Medical Center brought her family to New Jersey in late 2015, where she began working as an Associate General Dentist for Malo Smile USA, developers of the All-on-4® protocol, ultimately assuming the role of Clinical Director in 2016.

In her spare time, Dr. Howell enjoys spending time with her husband and three energetic young children in the outdoors, reading, cooking, and gardening.

Dr. Howell remains indebted to her mentors, who have supported her and fostered her growth both personally and professionally throughout her career. She is excited to embark upon her next journey, Green Leaf Dentistry: dental care rooted in compassion, trust, and clinical excellence. She welcomes you to Green Leaf Dentistry and looks forward to serving you and your family’s dental needs.

I can't say enough about Dr Howell! She is professional and compassionate and most importantly, empathetic! She works quickly and efficiently but takes the time to evaluate and diagnose so you never feel rushed even if she is crazy busy!

Dr. Jenny Howell and her team at Green Leaf Dentistry are unparalleled professionals. They ensure that you are entirely informed about the procedures you are having - what they will entail, why they need to take place, and what to expect afterwards.

She was the best dentist. I was so nervous and she made me feel calm and relaxed. She explained everything and always made sure I was ok.
