Meet Dr. Jennifer Blume Matelis

Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, health care providers and others to promote the benefits of good oral health to children and adults, caregivers, teachers and many others. This is also a good time to welcome the newest member of our professional staff. We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Jennifer Blume Matelis, a general dentist recognized for achievements in operative and prosthetic dentistry. She is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland Dental School and a native Washingtonian.

Dr. Jennifer Blume Matelis is a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society, Gorgas Odontological Honor Society, and Gamma Pi Delta Honor Society.  During her education at Dental School, she received numerous honors for scholastic performance and exemplary achievement in operative and prosthetic dentistry.

Dr. Matelis served for three years as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy Dental Corps.  While in the service, she completed a post-doctoral degree in Advanced Education in General Dentistry.  She served as a clinic director at Camp Pendleton Marine Base, California.

Following her military service, Dr. Matelis joined a successful third generation family dental practice in Gaithersburg, Maryland where she practiced for 11 years.  She has trained at the prestigious Dawson Academy in Florida and is an active member of the American Dental Association and the Maryland State Dental Association.  She has grown a tremendous patient population through word of mouth, referrals from patients, lectures and corporate outreach.  Dr. Matelis has been chosen by her peers as a TOP DENTIST and was featured in Washingtonian Magazine’s Best Dentists issue.

She currently resides in Potomac, Maryland with her husband and 4 beautiful children.  In her spare time, she enjoys mountain biking, hiking, photography, the Washington Capitals, and watching an endless array of children’s sporting events.

Starting your child off with good dental care can help protect their teeth for decades to come. Dr Matelis is pleased to be part of our legacy practice and looks forward to offering you outstanding oral care.

  • We can’t say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Ensor is a consummate professional– warm and caring with the kids, and clear and reassuring with the parents. Dr. Johnson is a hit with all the kids (and parents!), makes them feel comfortable, and explains things clearly. The staff are equally helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this practice. Have been going there for 10 years. After a tour of the facility we were escorted to the kids area where the kids had a blast playing with the toys. It was great that they allowed brother and sister to interact and support each other through the cleaning. As my son has a lot of anxiety and difficult behavior they were super patient and amazingly good with him!

  • My son has been a patient of Dr. Ensor’s since his very first dental appointment and he is now 12. She is an excellent dentist with a very gentle and calm demeanor. I recommend her highly! The dental practice is very attentive to children’s comfort, so if a child needs sunglasses to block the overhead light, or a little extra time to relax they adjust their approach to be sure children receive appropriate care and have a positive experience. I love Dr. Ensor! We also see the orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. He is so gentle, funny and nice that children of all ages really respond well to him. It is great to be able to make appointments to see both the orthodontist and the dentist on the same days and receive coordinated care. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ensor.

  • We rave about our orthodontist, Dr. Johnson. Three members of our family are currently his patients (mom and 2 kids) and we could not be happier. His personal attention to each patient (including calling on evenings and weekends after installing a new device just to make sure everything is ok) shows his genuine concern for his patients. Everyone there, from the office staff, to Cara (the billing wiz), to the techs — everyone is delightful to deal with. Not to mention that Dr. Johnson’s work is amazing. Highly recommend!

  • My son actually didn’t want to leave! Since my son has special needs it has been really hard to find a dentist that understands his special needs and how to take that into account when providing services. Dr. Lewis, was great with him! Not only did you have a wonderful and productive dental visit he didn’t want to leave! My kids have been seeing Dr. Ensor since they were 2yrs old. They are 15,16, 17 now. Dr. Ensor is wonderful, knows my children, is quiet and calm, and goes above and beyond. Yesterday my middle daughter met with Dr. Jessica Weber for a crown. Again, FANTASTIC!!!!! Front desk staff is efficient and warm, hygienists are top-notch. The office itself is modern, spacious and bright. We travel from Frederick to Bethesda to see these wonderful Drs.

  • Thank you for the tender services and above-and-beyond kindness that you show Ryan at every visit. Your practice’s willingness to embrace children living with disabilities and tend to their needs while allaying their fears is exceptional. We can’t thank you enough for all you do for Ryan and our family.

  • Dr. Weber is an extraordinary dentist! She is excellent at communication, putting the patient at ease and thorough. I had a huge fear of dentists from bad childhood experiences and her manner and professionalism has set me at ease. Now my whole family sees her!

  • We have brought our two daughters to Drs. Ensor, Johnson, and Lewis from the very beginning. (They have always seen Dr. Lewis, who is outstanding.) Our girls, now 5 and 7, absolutely adore Dr. Lewis and the rest of the staff. I can’t say enough good things about this practice; the facility is gorgeous, the friendly staff genuinely loves children, and the reminder emails and texts sent from the front office are extremely helpful. In fact, my husband and I like the practice so much, we recently decided to become patients ourselves! (We used to go to a different practice just for adults, but now we, too, go to EJL) It’s very convenient for our entire family to go to one practice! In short, we could not be happier. Best dentists we’ve ever been to!

  • Both, my husband and I loved brining our kids to Drs Ensor, Johnson and Lewis’ office. Everyone was very patient with our kids and explained every step to them, making them feel at ease. They let us stay with our children the entire time, and justified the procedures. In addition, they have a big play room and kids leave with a goodie bag feeling like they left a birthday party. We are very thankful.

  • Dr. Doshi’s bedside manner is incredible. She had my 5 year old smiling and laughing while he got two crowns and was in the chair. How many dentists sing to their patients to keep them calm? She is wonderful!!
