Life & Hobbies

When I am not practicing dentistry, I love to spend time with my beautiful twins Alexander and Cassandra and my supportive husband Francisco.  We love to play soccer, volleyball and to ride our bicycles every time the weather permits.


I also love to spend quality time with my mother, my five sisters and four brothers who are very close to me.  They are my moral support every time I need them.

Jamie Covington, DDS

"Dentistry is a perfect amalgamation of art and science. We treat disease and mitigate pain with science while taking an artistic approach to improving the aesthetic appeal of your smile. "

My Mission

"I strive to not only provide exemplary dental care but to educate and be educated by the community I serve. Furthermore, I am committed to extending access to dental care for all members of my community, including those that are usually underserved."

Life & Hobbies

When I am not practicing dentistry, I love to spend time with my family in Chicago and my dog Anastasia. In my free time, I enjoy artistic pursuits such as drawing and painting. I also like to work on my side project; creating a scholarship in memory of my late father, Dr. James A. Covington DDS, who came from an underprivileged background and became a doctor against all odds.
