Prefers to be called Dr. Kopacz or Dr. Jennifer. In 2008, she and her husband moved back to Rochester to be closer to family.
Dr. Kopacz is an experienced and compassionate general dentist with nine years of private-practice experience. She is fully knowledgeable of, and confident in, all aspects of general dentistry, with a special emphasis on aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry and special skills in restorative dentistry.
Dr. Kopacz is known and respected for her warm “chair-side manner,” winning personality, exceptional attention to detail, and continual drive toward perfection. A working mother, she recently returned to the Rochester area to raise her two young children. At Nicosia Dental, Dr. Kopacz is a true team player who’s confident in treatment planning and case presentation which, in turn, inspires confidence in her patients. The doctor takes pleasure in treating the needs of all patients, from toddlers to seniors.
And here’s an interesting fact or two: Dr. Kopacz’s father was a patient of the senior Dr. Nicosia who founded the practice, and Dr. Kopacz’s aunt was a dental assistant in the office during that same time.
