She then moved to England with her husband and later settled in New Hampshire in 1996. She has three grown children and four grandchildren, all of whom are based in Europe. She and her husband Finn live in Amherst, and also enjoy escaping to their home back home in Denmark. She continues to travel a great deal, including spending over a year in India. Besides traveling, Gitte enjoys reading, camping and motorcycling with her husband and friends. She has worked with Dr. Brar since 2001 and loves educating and chatting with her patients.
Jen found her love for dentistry in an orthodontist office in 2004 while still in high school and never looked back. Since that time, she has worked in the general dentistry field and has experience assisting in general dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and implant dentistry. She earned her CDA in 2017 from the DANB (Dental Assisting National Board) and is currently studying for her EFDA (Expanded Function Dental Assistant) Certification. She started at Brar Family Dentistry in 2019 and soon became an integral part of Dr. Brar’s team. As avid animal-lovers, Jen and her husband Mark spend most of their leisure time alongside their dog, Rusty. They enjoy new experiences and hope to travel to as many warm places as possible!
Jennifer is the newest member of our team who recently moved to New Hampshire from sunny Florida. After graduating from Mech Tech College in San Juan, PR, Jennifer worked as a dental assistant for a few years before moving to Florida where she was hired at the College of Dentistry at the University of Florida to assist the dental students and residents. Soon after, she was promoted to Dental Assistant Supervisor. Her vast experience with dental students and residents, her qualifications and her personal traits make her a perfect fit for Brar Family Dentistry. She is out-going, personable and a very talented dental assistant. She and her husband, their 3 children and 3 dogs live in Nashua. In her free time, Jennifer loves to try new restaurants and explore her new surroundings with her family. She feels her biggest challenge will be getting used to the New England winters!
