Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Joseph C. Jackson, Jr. was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He graduated from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1964 with a BS degree in both biology and chemistry. Dr. Jackson received his dental degree (D.D.S) from Howard University in Washington D.C. in 1969 where he was given the Dean’s award for superior academic achievement, excellence in clinical skills, and exemplary character. He was selected as the Top Intern in 1970 in the United States Air Force (USAF) where he did his dental internship. He went on to get his Certificate in Orthodontia from Howard University in 1974.

Dr. Jackson is a member of the Florida Board of Orthodontics, and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) in March of 1988, a feat accomplished by only a small percentage of orthodontists nationwide. He has served as secretary of the United Way of Pinellas County, and also served as president of the Boy’s and Girl’s Club of Pinellas County, an organization in which he remains very active. When he has time off, “Dr. J” enjoys golf, fishing, and traveling with his wife Monique.

Dr. Jackson understands the importance of keeping up-to-date with current trends, and so he regularly participates in continuing education classes.

Dr. Jackson is associated with:
