Meet the Orthodontist
Dr. Jessica Nardone grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and began her post-secondary education at McMaster University. She went on to attend the University of Toronto where she obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, and was recognized with awards for outstanding performance in Clinical Orthodontics, excellence in academic achievement and involvement in extra-curricular activities, and most valuable player on her dentistry soccer team.
Dr. Nardone comes from a large extensive family and just recently, she and her husband welcomed a new baby boy! Because she is the oldest of four sisters in her family, and because her youngest sister has autism, she has always had a keen interest in helping children with special needs. This inspired her to spend one year at SickKids Hospital in Toronto providing dentistry services to children with chronic medical conditions, acute illnesses, developmental delays, craniofacial anomalies, and acute emergencies.
From there, Dr. Nardone returned to the University of Toronto to complete her specialty training in the field of Orthodontics where her true passion lies. She believes that dental health, smile esthetics, and tooth and jaw functional relationships are integral components of one’s overall health and well-being. Through having braces herself, she has experienced the extent that a smile transformation can make on one’s own self-esteem and wellness, and feels that bringing about this change in others is very exciting and always rewarding!
Outside of the office Dr. Nardone enjoys chasing soccer balls, cheering on the Raptors and the Leafs, going to live concerts, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She plans to get her son on skates as soon as he learns to walk!
