Dr. Jennifer Finney
Dr. Jennifer Finney grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY and received her undergraduate degree in psychology at State University of New York at New Paltz. She went on to attend University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, where she graduated salutatorian of her class and became a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society.

During her residency she gained thorough training and hands-on experience in dental implant placement and surgery. She also worked extensively with medically complex patients and received her license in sedation dentistry.

She has been working in the region ever since, providing high quality and caring dentistry and loving every minute of it. Dr. Finney is a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Society, the 8th District Dental Society and East Aurora Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Finney is married to her husband, Matt, a Lockport native and has a baby boy, Lincoln born this past August. In her free time Dr. Finney loves being outdoors, is an avid Crossfitter and loves spending time with her family.
“I love being a dentist because every day I am given the opportunity to make an impact on someone's life. I can think of nothing more rewarding, whether it’s getting someone out of pain or giving someone back their smile who has been afraid to smile for years. Dentistry is not so much about teeth as it is helping a person as a whole.”
