If you talk to his peers, they will tell you that Dr. Richard Jacobson is widely considered to be one of the finest orthodontists alive. A Master of his craft, with over 10,000 cases served. Dozens of awards and citations. Both a teacher and innovator, constantly giving back to the profession.

But his patients don’t tell you that.

They tell you about his energy. His infectious laugh. His curiosity.. His passion for the work…the science…the art of creating a perfect smile. They tell you they wish all their doctors were like him.

And then, they tell you to go and see him.

Which is why Dr. J’s practice has become the premiere destination for people from ALL walks of life, and their families, from ‘far and wide’ including Hollywood professionals* both above and below the line: Word of mouth. But don’t take our word for it.
