I’ve always been good at science and music, and I ended up not going into music, so science was that. And I’ve always loved the dentist, loved going to them when I was a child. And so I was thinking, “Where do I want to go with what I know?” And that was dentistry.
And so as soon as I decided that, that was a straight track. I like helping people. It feels good to do something I’m good at and make a difference, feel like I’m contributing. And so I think that’s my favorite part.
Meet a Caring Dentist With a Personal Touch
Dr. Jessi LaPointe is a Corpus Christi native who has always loved going to the dentist. It’s part of why she became a dentist herself. She also loves being able to combine her loves of science, art, and helping others into a profession. Dr. LaPointe received her bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences from TAMU-CC and went on to Baylor College of Dentistry (now part of Texas A&M University) where she earned her DDS. She began practicing in 2012 and joined our team in 2018.
Patients love Dr. LaPointe because she is gentle and understanding. She doesn’t pass judgment, and you’ll love her positive attitude! In fact, helping patients thrive is the best part of Dr. LaPointe’s job! In her free time, she enjoys reading and crafting. She is also very active – she ran two half marathons in 2019 and is training for more in the future!
