Born and raised in Wheelwright, Ky, Dr. Jackson attended the University of Louisville for his undergraduate degree and later the University of Kentucky for both dental school and his pediatric residency. As a part time faculty member at the UK College of Dentistry and proud alumnus of both Kentucky schools (although he cheers on the Cardinals over the Wildcats every chance he gets), Dr. Jackson has been a tremendous resource for aspiring pediatric dentists within each program.
“This partnership improves not only your life but the lives of your patients,” said Dr. Jackson. “You’re still intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of your practice without being bombarded with the minutia and the things that, truthfully in dental school, you’re not taught to do. You can really get back and focus on what most people went into dentistry for — take care of patients.”
It is clinicians like Dr. Jackson — those committed to the continuity of patient care — who have made such a significant impact on the lives of their patients and the communities they serve.
Dr. Jackson, his wife and two sons live in Lexington, Ky. He is active in the community and currently serves as board chair of Delta Dental of Kentucky, chair of the Lexington-Fayette
County Board of Health, board chair of Fayette Education Foundation, and President of the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry.
