Julie Jayasekara has been part of the dental industry since 1990. Her journey began as a dental assistant. Her passion for dentistry led her to NYU College of Dentistry where she earned her degree as a Registered Dental Hygienist. After graduating, she began practicing in NYC and the North Shore of Long Island, with a specialty in comprehensive periodontal care.

In 2018, Julie and her husband relocated to Maryland, and she joined Shady Grove Dental Care. During the Covid 19 pandemic she took the opportunity to become certified in Orofacial Myology, which is a postural training of the tongue, lips, and cheeks. She enjoys providing a safe comfortable dental experience and emphasizing the importance of how the health of your mouth, teeth, and tongue can affect your overall general health.

Julie is married, has a daughter, and two Shih Tzu dogs. She loves French European antiques, history, and exploring quaint small towns. “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight “. – Phyllis Diller
