About Our Dental Team in Chapel Hill, NC

Dr. Jean Woods

Dr. Woods is originally from the Chapel Hill area and grew up on a farm with her parents, five siblings, and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. She completed two undergraduate degrees before going on to dental school: an associate of applied science in dental hygiene from Guilford Technical Community College and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from North Carolina Central University. She then received her Doctor of Dental Surgery from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry.

She is always striving to learn and describes herself as a “continuing education junky” in her beloved profession, working to stay on top of the latest techniques and developments to keep her patients healthy. She has also completed a mini residency for implant surgery at the Medical College of Georgia in 2005 and became a master of the Academy of General Dentistry in 2006, which requires dentists to complete 1100 hours of continuing education and pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.

Dr. Woods has been practicing dentistry in the area for over 30 years, originally starting as an associate doctor at an office in Charlotte before opening her private practice in her hometown on April 19, 1993. Her goal at our office is to educate patients and provide personalized, quality comprehensive dental care to all ages. With her comprehensive dental knowledge and experienced team, Dr. Woods is prepared to solve the most complex dental problems, all while keeping her patients comfortable and relaxed. She is proud to help save our patients time and money by delivering all their care under one roof without having to refer them out all over town.

Outside of the office, Dr. Woods enjoys horseback riding and currently lives on a horse farm. She also loves snow skiing and has raced on the amateur circuit for over 30 years.
