Meet the leader of the Hometown Dental team, Dr. Jennilee Jamison.
Dr. Jamison was born in High River and raised east of Okotoks on acreage in Mazeppa. She and her three younger brothers attended both Blackie and Highwood High Schools. After high school, Dr. Jamison attended the University of Lethbridge and succeeded in receiving her B.Sc. Co-op degree in Biochemistry. After U of L, she moved to Vancouver to attend dental school at the University of British Columbia. During her first year of dental school, Dr. Jamison was enrolled in the Canadian military dental officer training program. She attended boot camp during dental school and upon graduation from UBC, was posted to CFB Edmonton 1 Dental Unit and promoted to Captain.
During her time with the military, Dr. Jamison was sent on many courses in both Canada and the US, and also did temporary assignments at other bases such as Yellowknife, Shilo and Suffield. Her most memorable assignment was Pacific Partnership 2011, which was a humanitarian mission with the US Navy. She travelled from Australia to Timor Leste, Micronesia and finished in Pearl Harbour on the USS Cleveland. During the mission, she treated many patients who did not have access to regular dental care.
While she was posted to Edmonton, Dr. Jamison also worked in a private practice in her evenings and weekends. She retired from the military after 7 years and worked full time for one year in the same private practice in Edmonton before deciding to move back home. For two years prior to Hometown Dental opening, she worked in both Calgary and Okotoks as an associate.
In her spare time, Dr. JJ is busy with her family that includes 5 nieces and nephews, her two labs Duke and Daisy, volleyball, slo-pitch and riding her Harley or side-by-side. Dr. Jamison is excited to finally be starting her business at home and for the Hometown Dental adventure!

I am so thrilled to join the Hometown Dental Team after leaving the dental industry to have my kids. I was raised in High River and absolutely love living on our farm on Gladys Ridge.

I’m excited to welcome old and new friends from the Foothills area to our beautiful office.
