Dr. Jae Grymes grew up in Washington, DC and attended the University of Delaware (Go Blue Hens!). After college, she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Maryland. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Grymes completed a General Practice Residency at Harbor UCLA Hospital in Los Angeles. Deciding to dual specialize, she completed a two year residency in pediatric dentistry at Children’s Hospital Colorado and a three year residency in dental anesthesiology at Stony Brook Medical Center.
Dr. Grymes is committed to being a lifelong learner and regularly attends continuing education courses. Additionally, she is dual board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and American Dental Board of Anesthesiology. She is an active member in several dental organizations, including the American Dental Association and Delaware State Dental Society. Dr. Grymes maintains current certifications in Basic Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
Her treatment philosophy focuses on a collaborative relationship between patient (and/or parent) and provider. Her practice is evidence based, detail oriented, and centered on patient education. Dr. Grymes believes that compassion and a gentle touch are fundamental to an exceptional patient experience.
Outside of dentistry, you can find Dr. Grymes biking or doing yoga. A self-professed nerd, she loves reading and enrolling in courses to learn something new. Excited to settle back in Delaware after years away, she welcomes any suggestions for local places to explore.
Dr. Grymes is thrilled to be a part of the Emerald team and cannot wait to meet you and your family!
