Stephanie Jenkins, DDS

I graduated from Meredith College in 1992 and UNC Dental School in 1996. Before opening my practice in 1998, I worked at Murdoch Center and completed one year of associateship in a private practice. I was born and raised in the Carolinas and have enjoyed living in the Triangle since college. My husband, Greg, and I have two sons, Jack and Ryan. I have truly enjoyed my over fifteen years in dentistry. I am proud of our practice and my wonderful staff. In my time away from work I enjoy surfing, exercise, reading, live music, time at the beach and spending time with my family.

Linda Brown

Office Manager

I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL and moved to Durham in 2001 to work with Dr. Jenkins. North Carolina has become home to me and I love the climate compared to Florida. The changing of seasons is a major plus for North Carolina. Reading, crafts and spending time with my grandchildren, Justin, Destinee, Kourtney, Jack and Ryan are among my favorite things to do in my spare time. My working experience has been mainly with the public as an office manager, supervisor of support staff and receptionist. I enjoy my work tremendously.

Susan Gray

Dental Hygienist

I was a dental assistant for 18 years at the UNC School of Dentistry-Dental Faculty Practice in the Prosthodontic department. Upon leaving the department in 2000, I entered the Dental Hygiene Program at Guilford Community College in Jamestown, NC. I graduated and completed the dental boards in 2002. The career change has been a positive influence in my life. I am married and we enjoy caring for two great dogs Tanner and Cole. Other activities include music director and pianist for Little River Presbyterian Church; also gardening, exercising and reading.

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Jenkins and the staff and meeting the patients.
