Dr. Jordan grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Warren Central High School, where she was a member of the Speech and Debate team. After graduation, she studied at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology. She also participated in an exchange program in the Dominican Republic and studied Spanish while volunteering in the dental clinic with dental students and at a local hospital working with women and children.
Dr. Jordan spent her summers during her college years working at the mall. It was there she met a man whom asked if she had ever thought about a career in dentistry. It was a life-altering moment as he turned out to be the assistant dean of the dental school and a lifelong mentor to Dr. Jordan.
She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and participated in dental outreach programs for children in the community, such as Lessons in a Lunchbox: Healthy Teeth Essentials and Facts About Snacks Program in an effort to educate and prevent tooth decay. During dental school, she discovered that if she could start with children at an early age, she could help alleviate their dental fears as well as prevent decay. With that goal in mind, Dr. Jordan received her certificate in pediatric dentistry from Metrohealth in Cleveland, Ohio, and then went on to obtain her board certification in pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Jordan strives to create a positive dental experience for children and to establish healthy habits that carry them into adulthood, so possibly we can have children growing up not fearing the dentist but wanting to be a dentist. Dr. Jordan enjoys mission work and has returned to the Dominican Republic since graduating to provide dental care to children and adolescents in need. She is also an avid yogi and plant-based foodie.
