Jahnelle D. McLennan, DDS, graduated from University of Maryland, College Park with a bachelor’s degree in biology and received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Howard University College of Dentistry. Prior to joining Nathanson Dental in 2019, she practiced in Washington, D.C for a private practice.
Graduating in the top ten percent and becoming a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honors Society, she was the most awarded graduate of her class. Dr. McLennan achieved the Dean’s Award, for top academic achievement, excellence in clinical skills, and exemplary character, the Delta Dental Award, for traits of leadership and embodiment of the mission of serving the underserved, the Frank M. Lapeyrolerie Memorial Award, given by his family, for demonstrating exceptional ability in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the Washington Dental Studio Award for excellence in Esthetic Dentistry, and the Whip Mix Corporation Award, for dedication to the study and clinical application of Prosthodontics.
Dr. McLennan understands that each patient has individual needs and deserves individualized care. She is more than dedicated to providing innovative services and is excited to care for each patient. She continues to dedicate herself to education in the field and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the International Dental Implant Association.
If Dr. McLennan is not indoors enjoying drawing or painting, you can find her in the wilderness camping. She is an avid reader, animal lover, and all around environmental enthusiast. A Maryland native, she enjoys the company of her family and friends the most, especially cheering her young nephews on from the sidelines and at school events. Giving back, especially to children, is also a passion of hers as she’s completed volunteer work serving local communities and even abroad in Guatemala, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico. A self-proclaimed foodie, Dr. McLennan can be spotted at restaurants all over Maryland and DC, or just enjoying some local fare with her fiancé and rescue pup.
