Jennifer Dent (born Jennifer Hopkins on September 2, 1981) is an American professional tennis player.

She has won six International Tennis Federation (ITF) women's circuit titles in her career and nearly cracked the top 50. In 2001, she reached her first single final in Hobart (meantime she lost to Italian Rita Grande). In 2003, she played some ITF women's circuit events, reaching the final in Atlanta and the semifinals at Dothan-USA. In 2005, she won her first doubles title at Strasbourg with Jelena Kostanić. However, she has so far never gone beyond the second round in any of the four major tournaments that make up the Grand Slam. She last played in an ITF tournament in October 2005 in Bangkok.

She married Taylor Dent on December 8, 2006 in Sarasota, Florida. On January 26, 2010, she gave birth to a baby boy, Declan James Phillip Dent.[1]
