My Story

Dr. Jenna Katz Schwibner with her FamilyHi, I’m Jenna Katz Schwibner, a lifelong resident of Vero Beach, a quiet town on the east coast of Florida’s Treasure Coast. As an owner of Dental Partners of Vero Beach, I lead a team dedicated to providing our patients with what we call “Complete Dentistry for Complete Health.” Our comprehensive approach to dental care focuses on the teeth and the relationship between the entire mouth and a patient’s overall health. In addition to comprehensive general, cosmetic, and implant dentistry, my practice specializes in Airway and Sleep-Centric Dentistry and Orthodontics for patients of all ages.

I became a dentist to make a difference in people’s lives. While seeing a patient’s reaction to a life-improving cosmetic restoration is incredibly rewarding, I always felt that I was only scratching the surface of making a true impact. Following dental school, I pursued many years of higher education to achieve advanced certifications with organizations such as the Dawson Academy and the American Academy of Physiological Medicine & Dentistry, and I earned a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry. I learned from my journey that while cosmetic and restorative treatments are essential, they will not be successful in the long term until the foundation of your mouth is optimized.

As my studies progressed, the Foundation First philosophy was born.

The late Dr. Peter Dawson was widely regarded as the most famous dentist in the world. His Dawson Academy teaches an approach to dental health based on the relationships between the teeth, jaw, and facial muscles. A newer element to the curriculum is airway, which quickly became particularly interesting to me. I completed additional specialized training with the leading airway organization, Airway Health Solutions, and studied directly under their lead clinical director, Dr. Ben Miraglia.

My Foundation First approach is based on the belief that optimal dental health starts with the airway and that underdeveloped jaws are an evolutionary defect exacerbated by Western culture, diet, and conventional medicine. This can wreak havoc on our teeth, sleep, and overall health.

I developed this platform, Foundation First Sleep & Airway Dentistry, to provide information and education to patients, the parents and grandparents of pediatric patients, and medical and healthcare professionals. This website and its content are being shared in the hope that we can spread this information and knowledge to educate and benefit as many people as possible.

Please take some time to browse through the articles, external websites, our original articles, educational videos, and recommended reference books. From my practice, we will share testimonials, before-and-after photos, and a vast amount of information on what we do, why we do it, and how we accomplish life-changing outcomes.

My goal and passion are to help individuals breathe and thrive to be the best version of themselves.
