Jennifer S. Pritts, D.M.D
I grew up in Effingham, Illinois and went to Dental Hygiene school right after high school. During my dental hygiene school, I met my husband and we have been married 20 years and have 5 amazing kiddos. Before the kids, I completed a biology degree from Eastern Illinois University and attended Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, receiving my dental degree in 2008.  One of the kids was born before dental school, the twins were born during dental school and the little girls were born after dental school. 
 
Immediately after graduation from SIU SDM, I entered into the United States Army and began a 12 month Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. After completion of this residency, I worked in general dental clinic setting on Ft. Campbell from 2008-2013 and at a general dental practice in Clarksville TN at night and on Saturdays for a few years to gain some "real world" experience.
 
From September of 2010 to August of 2011, I was sent to Afghanistan and performed dentistry at FOB Sharana for the 4th Brigade of the 101st Airborne out of Ft. Campbell.  I separated from the Army in August of 2013 and made the move to Quincy, IL to purchase this practice from Dr. LuAnne McClean in November of 2013.  Since then, we have been operating as Quincy Dental Center. 

Sandra Cleveland, Registered Dental Hygienist
I grew up in Effingham, IL and moved to Quincy IL right after completing dental hygiene school. I met my husband here in Quincy. We have been married for 30 years and have 4 boys, all grown.
 
I have worked for the same dental practice for 33 of the 34 years of my career, the last seven years with Dr. Jennifer Pritts. One of my hobbies is to put up a large display of Christmas lights in our yard every year.  
 
Danielle, Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Troy Missouri. In 2016, I took a position at an office in Quincy, IL. Originally, I was planning on it being a temporary job as a way to have a change of scenery and new experiences. Little did I know, I would be in the Quincy area permanently. 

While working in Quincy, I was blessed to meet my now husband. He is from Camp Point, Illinois and we decided to settle here after being married.  My husband and I enjoy traveling with our camper and seeing the countryside. 

Kayla, Insurance Coordinator
 I grew up in Quincy, Illinois and attended a dental assisting program in 2004. The world of dentistry has been my passion ever since! I worked chairside with the dentist for many years and then decided to switch gears and use my knowledge in the administrative part of the practice. So, now you get to see me when you are checking in and out rather than when you are being treated. In 2017, I became a part of the Quincy Dental Center team.  When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, cooking and spending time with my husband and two kids.
Emily, Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Emily! I was born and raised in Quincy Illinois. I started my career in dentistry in 2021. My mother was a dental assistant while I was growing up. I idolize my mother so much and wanted to follow in her footsteps. I was given the chance to train chair side with Dr. Pritt’s. It was the BEST opportunity I could have ever been given. To be able to have a boss who is so kind and passionate about what she does is so inspiring! The job has given me more time with my son and significant other to do what we love most, which is going boating on the river and racing!

Kyra, Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Kyra! I was raised in Camp Point, IL. I moved to Palmyra, MO in 2022 along with my husband, Blaine and two beautiful children, Keynu and Kovah.

Here at Quincy Dental Center we deliver honest and compassionate dentistry; which is something I take great pride in! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. 

Kristie, Office Administrator/Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Kristie! I grew up in Quincy, Illinois. I started my career in Dentistry in 2011. I quickly fell in love with Dentistry. I love educating and helping patients understand the importance of their oral health. Over the years I was a dental assistant, but in 2021 I switched roles and now oversee the office to ensure we’re efficient and help things run smoothly. In my free time I enjoy working out, which is also where I met my husband in 2008 and married in 2014. We have two dogs, Scottie and Daisy. They have quite the personalities! I also love Jeep cruising, being outside, spending time with my friends and family, traveling, and pushing myself to learn new things!
