Dr. Jacqueline Stump was born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia.  Having grown up in a large extended family, Jacqueline was blessed with strong female role models that laid the foundation for her to strive for excellence and purpose in her professional career and personal success.  With two uncles who are dentists, Jacqueline had the unique opportunity to learn at a young age how changing one’s smile can dramatically improve one’s overall health and wellbeing.

In 2008, Dr. Jacqueline completed her undergraduate studies in biology and chemistry at The University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida.  She then attended West Virginia University School of Dentistry, graduating with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree in 2012.  After graduating dental school, she had the privilege to train and work with her two uncles and brother in private practice in her hometown of Charleston.

As the only female partner at Howard & Howard Dental, Jacqueline is committed to mastering the latest in dental techniques and innovations.  She strives to bring a youthful perspective, energy and passionate approach to a long- respected practice.  Her dynamic leadership qualities coupled with being part of a compassionate team, allows Dr. Jacqueline to create beautiful smiles for her patients while also improving their dental and overall health. Dr. Jacqueline is actively involved in organized dentistry at the local, state and national levels, such as the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.  As an associate member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry she is dedicated to the highest levels of education and excellence in field of total facial esthetics.  

Dr. Jacqueline enjoys maintaining an active lifestyle outside of the dental office and strongly believes that her ability to preserve and beautify her patient’s smiles starts with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  She enjoys staying centered by taking Pilates and teaching TRX training.   Being able to practice dentistry in the community that helped raise her, she considers herself fortunate to be involved in multiple local organizations and charities that are committed to improving Charleston and surrounding areas.  She is a dedicated and effective advocate for the arts and culture.  Her time, creativity, and generosity to The Clay Center for the Arts & Science, a not-for-profit cultural institution, in Charleston, W.V. is evident not only by her serving as a member on the Board of Directors, but with her work the last eight years volunteering on several development and fundraising committees.  In 2019 and 2020 Dr. Jacqueline served as Co-Chair for Carnaval, one of the largest fundraising events held at The Clay Center, allowing the Center to continue the great legacy of providing support and funds for quality STEM education and cultural programs.

The fierce and fearless female role models that help shaped her life, instilled in Jacqueline the passion to give back to her community from an early age.  Dr. Jacqueline has also been diligent in her efforts to educate the community on issues of domestic violence.  For a decade, Jacqueline has worked tirelessly as one of the lead Chairwomen for the “Girls Night Out” event, bringing awareness that domestic violence and abuse comes in all forms and can happen to anyone.  Proceeds from Girls Night Out benefit the YWCA Resolve Family Abuse Program, providing shelter and support for victims of domestic violence.
