Dr. Jillian Wolske

Dr. Jillian Wolske is a native of Jacksonville, Florida. In 1999 she began her career in the field of dentistry by fulfilling a lifelong dream of joining the United States Navy, where she enlisted as a Dental Technician. Her career began just like any other service member, attending boot camp, and specialized training then assignment.

During her enlisted career as a Dental Technician she had the honor of being stationed in numerous locations to include; Great Lakes Illinois, Wichita Falls Texas, and Key West Florida.

While serving in the Navy, she attended St Leo University, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Human Services with a specialization in Human Behavior.

In addition to earning her degree she was selected as the NDC Southeast Region Junior Sailor of the Year and in 2003 was awarded the Armed Forces, Health Professions Scholarship and a commission as an Officer.

After receiving her commission she was chosen to further her education at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN, where she graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2007. After graduating from dental school, she was promoted to Lieutenant and was assigned to 2d Dental Battalion, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. At Camp Lejeune she entered a yearlong residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry, studying extensively in all aspects of dental specialties, where she graduated second in her class. Soon after completing her advanced training she deployed with 2d Marine Logistics Group to Taqaddum, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Upon return from Iraq and after serving 10 years in the Navy, she settled in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she worked as an Associate for Wilmington Comprehensive and Cosmetic Dentistry. After a year as an associate she fulfilled a lifelong dream of ownership and purchased the practice from the owner.

What people say

Hi! I didn’t know where to send this kind of thing but I just wanted to say thank you to the woman (I wish I could remember her name) that did my teeth cleaning yesterday. I have been so self conscious about my teeth for months and it got to the point that I would avoid smiling or just wear my mask as much as possible because my teeth were so dang stained! Not only did the wonderful lady (again REALLY wish I remembered her name!!) tell me things I could do to prevent it, but she got rid of all the stain. When she first said that it was gone I was kinda skeptical like “did you really get all of it” but sure enough she did! I legitimately couldn’t stop smiling on the way back to work. I even sent a selfie to my wife to show her my teeth! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it and how much it means to not be scared to smile. So, thank you to Dr. Wolske and the awesome lady that helped get all that stain off. Y’all are seriously the best!!

thank you!


My husband and I have been going to Port City Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for years and love it! The staff is fantastic… so friendly and professional. I also love that I’m in and out in no time! We have multiple friends and family members that go here as well. I would highly recommend Port City Family & Cosmetic Dentistry!

I am a patient that gets deep root cleanings and scaling for many years before stepping into Dr. Wolske’s office. I would dread going to the dentist. My first visit I was surprised how well my visit went. My first cleaning I left happy with how gentle the dental hygienist was. I also left with a plan from Dr. Wolske to improve my dental care for the future. Everyone was wonderful that visit and every visit since. Unlike other dentists I did not end up with an extraordinary bill. I was also told by another dentist I needed to have work done that Dr. Wolske told me was 100% unnecessary. Now my whole family goes to Dr. Wolske!

Port City Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is the best dentist office I have ever been to. The high level of service and attention to detail is unmatched in my experience . Hannah, the dental hygienist who usually provides cleanings for me, has always been very friendly, very knowledgeable and does a great job every time. In addition Dr. Wolske is easy to work with and has always made me feel comfortable and informed about decisions I’ve made about my teeth. To top it off the office is very clean, has top of the line equipment and is decorated very nicely. I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone in the Wilmington area, you will be pleasantly surprised how well you’re treated.
