Dr. Jenny Howell

Associate Dentist

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.

From the moment I walked in the door everyone in the office was very welcoming! I followed Dr. Ferraro from another office, and she’s more than worth the extra travel! She’s super thorough, personable, and very knowledgeable. I’ve had my fair share of unfavorable experiences with dentists, but she eases any anxiety about my visits. I highly recommend this office!

I simply can’t say how impressed I am and thankful with Dr. Ferrero and her staff. Her staff were very welcoming very kind.For the pass couple of years, I’ve had an issue with my wisdom tooth. I needed to get it extracted, but every dentist that I visit always gave me the same excuse we can’t remove it it’s right on the nerve. I became hopeless. dealing with the pain, until I went to Dr. Ferraro dental practice.
