Dr. Jean G. You

Pediatric Dentist Dr. Jean YouDr. Jean Guevarra You is a native of Northern New Jersey and graduated magna cum laude with Bachelor’s degrees in both Biology and Psychology from Ramapo College of New Jersey. She then completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) at the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, one of the top dental schools in the nation and among dental schools worldwide. She devoted much of her spare time as a pre-doctorate towards helping underserved women and children through her work with professional non-profit organizations.  

Following her dental education, Dr. Jean continued her training in the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry at the prestigious Columbia University – New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. At Columbia University, Dr. Jean received extensive training in working with children of diverse backgrounds including those with complex medical conditions and special needs in the outpatient, emergency and operating room settings.

Dr. Jean is part of a small group of specialty trained pediatric practitioners who underwent the rigorous process of becoming Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. These additional requirements include passing a complex written qualifying examination as well as an in-person oral clinical examination. Pediatric dentists who have become board-certified have demonstrated an advanced clinical and scientific mastery of pediatric dentistry.

When given the opportunity, she enjoys combining her love for travel and dentistry by volunteering for dental mission trips to help treat disadvantaged populations around the world. Dr. Jean has participated in outreaches in Buffalo, Tennessee, the Dominican Republic and the Philippines.

Dr. Jean strives to make every dental experience positive, fun and educational for children and parents alike. She hopes to help children and families establish a dental home to attain smiles they can maintain for a lifetime.

She is certified in both Basic Cardiac Life Support (B.C.L.S.) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (P.A.L.S.). Dr. Jean stays current in the field through active membership in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association and the North Carolina Dental Association.

Prior to making her way to Apex, Dr. Jean treated children in private practice for several years in both Connecticut and then in Massachusetts. Needless to say, she is thrilled to be able to call the research triangle home! Outside of dentistry, Dr. Jean enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Geoffrey You, and their adorable Shishon, Mochi. They are super excited to be joining the community. She cannot wait to meet you and your family at their next visit!
