Dr. Jayne F. Scherrman

I joined this practice in 1992, after a year of teaching in New Orleans at Children's Hospital and the Louisiana State University Medical College School of Dentistry, where I did my pediatric dental residency. I graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 1989 and from undergraduate school at University of Iowa in 1985. I am an active member of American Academy Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, SEMO Dental Association and the local Dental Study Club. I grew up in Dyersville, Iowa, and am a middle child of seven. My father owned a Case IH dealership, which is why I talk tractor color to all my patients. I love every part of this practice. I am blessed with two children, William and Elizabeth. Our pets also play an important role in our family. Outside the office, I love watching my children grow and spending quality time with our family. I love helping those in need and enjoy sponsoring local scholarship funds. I am an aunt to 22 nieces and nephews. I enjoy cooking, listening to music and reading. I claim two half marathon medals - don't ask me about my times! I enjoy bike riding vacations. I completed the Big Dam Bridge 100 mile ride in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church. Cape Girardeau is a wonderful community to call home.
