Jennifer Quist Giltner, D.M.D., M.S.

Dr. Jennifer Giltner fell in love with dentistry while working with her father, an oral surgeon. During dental school, she cherished the relationships she formed with patients. It wasn’t long until she discovered that orthodontics was the field where she most connected with patients. She loved creating smiles for her patients, who had become like close friends.

“From the very moment that I entered the Blue Ridge Orthodontics office, it was evident that the patients love coming to their appointments. I am thrilled to be able to call myself part of such a wonderful team, that creates beautiful smiles to last a lifetime,” says Giltner.

Dr. Giltner considers her hometown to be Colorado Springs, CO, but as the daughter of two retired Air Force officers, she has lived across the globe, ranging from Tucson, AZ to Okinawa, Japan. She is excited to settle in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. She and her husband enjoy skiing, white water rafting, traveling, and hiking with their dog, Aksel. They are also excited to begin camping, kayaking and road biking while exploring their new hometown.
