Meet our Doctor

Jesse L. Ritter, D.D.S.

Docotr Jesse L. Ritter

“Partnering with patients to improve their overall health, dental health, self esteem and overall quality of life are some of the reasons why I love dentistry.”

Dr. Ritter attended Penn State University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in 2006. He then went on to attend professional school at the University of Maryland Dental School where he graduated in 2010. He then completed a 1-year residency to receive advanced training in General Dentistry at York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania.

His commitment to advanced dental education hasn’t stopped there. He is a firm believer in Continuing Education (CE) and since completing Dental School has taken over 300 hours of CE. Most notably, he has completed advanced studies at the prestigious L.D. Pankey Institute, known for it’s emphasis on comprehensive diagnosis, advanced treatment and technical dentistry. Thirty hours of CE are needed per two years in Maryland to maintain a dental license. He strives to complete 100+ hours per year. He feels he owes it to his patients to constantly improve his skills and expertise.

Outside of dentistry, he enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife Saleha, golfing, skiing, reading, exercising and cheering on the Ravens.
