Dr. Jennette Bick received her undergraduate degree in Biology from George Mason University in 2006 and upon graduation was awarded the Bruce and Marian Johnson Award, which is given to the student matriculating into a medical profession, who the faculty assess to have the greatest potential.
She went on to receive the US Army’s Health Professions Scholarship and her dental degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 2011. Upon graduation Dr. Bick was selected by the faculty and inducted into the Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, for which only the top 20% of the graduating class can be considered. She was also commissioned as a Captain in the US Army and went on to complete her graduate training from the United States Army’s Advanced Education Program in Periodontics at Fort Gordon, GA in 2015. Dr. Bick received her Master’s Degree in Oral Biology from Georgia Regent’s University the same year.
In 2016, Dr. Bick challenged and passed the American Board of Periodontology. She is committed to maintaining her Diplomate status within the Board throughout the remainder of her days, and will continue to recertify every six years.
Her first assignment after residency was to Fort Leonard Wood Missouri, where she served as the Chief of Periodontics, Officer-In-Charge of the specialty dental clinic, and Deputy Commander. It was during this assignment that Dr. Bick was selected as an Iron Major, which is an honor reserved for less than 100 of all medical professionals each year within the Army. She was also selected to serve as the Officer-In-Charge of the US Army’s Pediatric Dental Mission to Honduras, and was subsequently recognized by the Honduran President for the team’s efforts in treating underprivileged children in Tegucigalpa.
In 2018, Dr. Bick was invited back to Fort Gordon to serve as an Assistant Program Director for the US Army’s Periodontic Residency Program, where she served for two years. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Bick was called upon to serve as the Officer-In-Charge of Snyder Dental Clinic on Fort Gordon, which is responsible for the dental care for the thousands of Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines stationed and training at Fort Gordon.
One year later, she was selected as the youngest Commander to assume command of the Fort Belvoir Dental Clinic Command, which encompasses the dental assets at both Fort Belvoir and Fort Myer. Today, Dr. Bick focuses her practice on traditional periodontics, to include disease control and soft tissue grafting, sedation, wisdom teeth extractions, implants, and pathology.
Throughout her career the Army has afforded Dr. Bick the opportunity to serve the Dental Corps as the action officer for the Female Physician’s Course and be a guest lecturer and / or mock board examiner for both Army and civilian Periodontic residency programs and Advanced Education Programs in General Dentistry (AEGD) throughout the country. Outside of the Army Dr. Bick plays an active role in the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and serves on three separate committees, including the Volunteer and Awards Qualification Committee, the Nominating Officer Committee, and the Sedation Committee. She is the wife of Dr. Brandon Coleman and is the mom of three beautiful kids, Hannah, Myles, and Connor. She is looking forward to the day when she can finish her career in the Army Reserves, practice alongside her husband, have the ability to be involved in every aspect of her children’s lives, and sit in the same pew at church every Sunday.
