While in dental school, Dr Jackson cultivated interests in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as oral surgery and public health. He is motivated to serve each patient’s unique needs by restoring overall esthetics and function of the dentition.
In his spare time, Dr Jackson enjoys spending time outdoors in the mountains or at the lake with his family and golden retriever (Beckham), attending sporting events and concerts, and traveling.
