Dr. Jessica Edwards was born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota. A true Gopher at heart, she attended the University of Minnesota for eight straight years. As an undergraduate, she majored in Anthropology and then went on to receive her DDS degree in 2019. During dental school, she spent a semester of her fourth year studying abroad in Bergen, Norway, practicing dentistry while learning the Scandanivaian perspective on oral health care. Upon graduation, Dr. Edwards moved to Salt Lake City to complete a one year hospital based General Practice Residency program at the University of Utah. Her main goal for her patients is to help them achieve a healthy smile that they are proud to have. Dr. Edwards relocated to the Des Moines area with her fiancé and their dog. In her free time, you can find her in the kitchen, working out, travelling, exploring the local food scene or spending time with friends and family. She can't wait to see you soon at Kimball and Beecher Family Dentistry!
