New Era Dental was founded by two Buffalo natives, Dr. Jessica Blakely and Dr. Camille Megna-Acorlor. Our goal is to provide a professional and positive atmosphere for the patient looking for a permanent or long term dental home to address comprehensive treatment needs. Comprehensive treatment needs include cleanings, exams and patient education, restorative treatment such as fillings, crowns and bridges, pediatric care, sports guards, root canal treatment, dentures, and extractions.
Dr. Blakely is a proud Buffalo native. She was educated in the Buffalo public school system and is a graduate of City Honors High School. Dr. Blakely relocated to Washington, DC for 8 years while she completed her undergraduate and dental studies at Howard University. She graduated in 2010 from Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, DC with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. She then returned to Buffalo to complete a General Practice Residency program with the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and Kaleida Health. Upon completion, she began working in a group practice in the Buffalo area. In addition, Dr. Blakely is a part time clinical instructor for 2nd and 3rd year dental students at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Blakely is also an officer in the US Army Reserves working as an Army Dentist.
Passionate about giving back, Dr. Blakely mentors young girls interested in becoming a dentist in a group called Future Dentist Mentors. She was also a member of Mayor Brown’s 2013-2014 Dental Task Force, a group committed to improving the dental health of Buffalo area children.
In her free time Dr. Blakely enjoys, blogging about dentistry @RealJessDDS, spending time with family, traveling, attending church, staying fit, and cheering for the Buffalo Bills.
