Jennifer D. Keyser, DDS
Dr. Keyser was born and raised in New Enterprise, Pennsylvania. She attended Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Pre-Dentistry. Dr. Keyser continued her education at the University of Maryland College of Dental Surgery, Dental School, completing her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1997.
She moved to the Atlanta area in 1997 to pursue her surgical training and completed internship, residency, and fellowship training at Emory University in 2003. Dr. Keyser joined the teaching faculty in the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and in reflection has found the teaching of residents to be one of the most gratifying aspects of her career. She returned to her native Pennsylvania in 2004 and remained in Private Practice with Oral Surgery Associates of Central PA until May of 2017 where the lure of the South and the beauty of Fayette County brought her and her family here once again to join South OMS.
Her love of teaching and commitment to her faith led her and her family to serve as short-term missionaries for 9 months in Cameroon, Africa through the Samaritan’s Purse organization in 2012-2013. While assigned to Mbingo Baptist Hospital, Dr. Keyser trained general surgeons in the management and treatment of oral and maxillofacial pathology, facial trauma, and head and neck surgery. Her great love of missions continues to thrive today.
Dr. Keyser is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. She is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Surgery with Emory Univerity, a member of the Georgia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, and the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
She enjoys all aspects of practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery including dentoalveolar surgery, oral pathology, oral rehabilitation through dental implant placement, facial trauma, and management of temporomandibular joint disorders.
Dr. Keyser and her husband currently reside in Peachtree City and have 3 children.
