Meet Our Team of Dentists


Dr. Jennifer W. Thornton
Dr. Jennifer Thornton is the daughter of a dentist and a dental hygienist, she showed interest in the dental field at a young age and it culminated in her pursuing a dental career as well.   In 2002, she married Brian Thornton - who she met while completing her training at the University of Washington School of Dentistry.   She thoroughly enjoys providing care at our office, and has known many of the patients since she was very young.   Some of Jenny's favorite hobbies are quilting and sewing

Dr. Brian Thornton
Dr. Brian Thornton, husband to Dr. Jennifer Thornton, joined the practice on his completion of Dental School at the University of Washington in 2003.   Brian brings another aspect to the office, his gift of artistry.  The walls of the Poulsbo Dental Center have become a gallery for the display of many of his recent and favorite paintings.  In addition, his artwork and reproductions have been used in several fundraisers for locals schools and the Washington Oral Health Foundation.  Dr. Thornton feels his artistic abilities enhance his dental skills leading to very pleasing results.

Our office is unique in this connection of the dentists. We feel it brings a comfortable and stable foundation on which we can develop and build lifetime relationships with our patients.

Each of our dentists received their training from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, and hold memberships in the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the Kitsap County Dental Society - in which they are actively involved.  Continuing education and advancement in dental knowledge, skills, and techniques is a high priority for all three dentists, as they strive to continually provide the best care possible.  The following is a little about each of them individually.
