Dr. James Snyder was born and raised in Martinsburg, WV. He is a graduate of the West Virginia University School of Dentistry, having completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry at Shepherd College. Dr. Snyder began his career as a staff dentist at the Veterans’ Administration Medical Center, Martinsburg WV. He then went on to open a private dental practice in Martinsburg. During this time he also served as a consultant at Western Maryland Hospital Center, eventually closing his practice and continuing as Director of Dental Services at Western Maryland Hospital Center for 11 more years. Missing his connection to his hometown, he reopened his Martinsburg dental practice, with a major renovation of his office, opening July 1, 2014. His wife, Edith, a graduate of WVU School of Nursing and Pittsburgh native, also works in the office.
Jim and Edith have four adult children and one young grandson. They also have two dogs, 3 cats, a rabbit, one rooster, and too many chickens---all leftover from raising children! Dr. Snyder’s other interests include photography, reading and sports (particularly the Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers). He is excited to once again be back in his hometown of Martinsburg serving the dental needs of his community.
