Jess Ayres, R.D.H., M.S.

Jess Ayers, R.D.H., M.S. grew up in Amarillo and graduated from the Amarillo College Dental Hygiene Program in 2010. She worked chairside for 6 years before returning to school to earn her BSDH from Texas Woman’s University in 2017. Jess loved working chairside, but her ultimate goal was to be a leader and a mentor for future dental hygienists. With a dream to work in higher education in a dental hygiene program, she continued her education with Texas Woman’s University. In 2019, she graduated with a Master of Science with a major in Health Studies with honors. Before completion of her master degree, Jess started working at Amarillo College as a Lab Manager. She teaches the Dental Materials lab, is a clinical instructor, a Preclinic lab instructor and helps with numerous projects for the program.

Jess is married and has three daughters. When she’s not acting as a dental hygiene superhero, she enjoys spending time with her family and working out in her home gym.
