Jenny Jeon, DDS, MS
Hello! My name is Dr. Jenny J. Jeon, and I am an Orthodontist at Dr. Lili & Associates in Huntington Park, California. It's a pleasure to meet you!
My journey to becoming an orthodontist started from an early age. My mom is also an orthodontist and seeing the beautiful smiles she gave to her patients inspired me to be an orthodontist.
I was born in South Korea and moved to Southern California when I was eight years old. From high school, I was accepted to the Accelerated Seven-Year Dental Program at New York University.
At NYU College of Arts and Sciences, I graduated magna cum laude with Presidential Honors as Bachelor of Arts in Biology. Then I went on to graduate with top OKU Honors from NYU College of Dentistry as Doctor of Dental Surgery.
I then pursued a three-year Orthodontics Residency at UCLA Orthodontics, which was my first choice for their world-class clinical and research training. There, I served as the Chief Resident for two years and received my Certificate in Orthodontics.
During residency, I also pursued a Master of Science in Oral Biology with my thesis on the Effects of Botulinum Toxin Injections in the Masseter Muscle, which was selected to be presented at the annual conference for American Association of Orthodontists!
I am also a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, and California Association of Orthodontists. I also serve as a New Dentists Representative in the Korean American Dental Association and as a Diversity Officer in the American Dental Association Institute for Diversity in Leadership.
In my free time, I pursue my passion in fitness through CrossFit; in music through singing and playing violin; in family and friendships through new experiences; and in public health education through Instagram, TikTok and YouTube (@drjennyjeon).
I look forward to meeting you and transforming your smile!
