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

She has won seven International Tennis Federation (ITF) women's circuit singles titles in her career and nearly cracked the top 50. In 2001, she reached her only WTA singles final in Hobart (which 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 2002, she won her only WTA doubles title at Strasbourg with Jelena Kostanić. However, she has 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]
