Needville Family Dentistry

Dr. Jennifer Kunkel

I am originally from the Texas Hill Country and moved to Needville in 1992. In 2000, I graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). In 2001, I started my own practice, Needville Family Dentistry, on Hwy 36 in Needville.

I love what I do! I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, and the Greater Houston Dental Society. I enjoy attending continuing education classes around the country to improve my knowledge and skills and to keep up with the ever-changing and growing field of dentistry.

I have a wonderful husband, Cory, and five amazing adult children, Taylor and her husband, Jarrod, Cortney, Kate, and Cody. I actively participate in the First Baptist Church of Needville, as a board member at First Academy preschool, and work with both youth and missions. When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my family traveling, hiking, snow skiing, or just hanging out.

In 2019, I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Kampala, Uganda and serve the people by providing services and education to the families of children with special needs through Hope Speaks. is a wonderful non-profit organization that reaches the underserved areas of Kampala with speech pathology assistance and training. It was an eye-opening and life-changing experience, and I hope to go back soon!
