About Dr. Fergus

I am so blessed to love my job. As an orthodontist I get to meet wonderful people of all ages, work alongside loving and caring people, and bring smiles to the faces of all my patients. Since I was 12 years old I have dreamed of helping people love their smiles as my own orthodontist had helped me love mine.

I consider myself one of the luckiest people in the world to be able to wake-up every morning and live my dream. Having the opportunity to be a part of my patients’ lives during the transformation of their smile is the best feeling in the world. I love being an orthodontist.

Outside the Office

I am originally from a small town outside of Nashville, Tennessee, called Springfield. After graduating college from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, I attended the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis for dental school. During dental school, I meet my wonderful husband, Dr. Jay Fergus, who is a dentist in Jonesboro and is originally from Osceola, Arkansas. In dental school I was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society, the highest honor society among dental graduates, and upon graduating I was fortunate to be asked to continue my dental education, specializing in orthodontics. I completed my orthodontic residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, where I completed three years of specialized orthodontic training following dental school. I am also a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics – a distinction that less than 20% of practicing orthodontists actually receive.

My husband and I have two sons, who are both growing like weeds! We also have our beloved Maltese-Beagle mixed puppy who is 16 lbs of wild hair and energy. We both have a passion for college football, and it is no secret I am partial to my Tennessee Vols—Go Big Orange! But otherwise, you will always find me cheering for the Razorbacks or the Red Wolves . . . unless they are playing Tennessee.

We love the outdoors and that is why we have made The Natural State our home. Northeast Arkansas has the small town feel I grew-up with and love, but with big city opportunities. We could not have picked a more perfect place for us to plant our roots and raise our family.
