David C. Jackson, DMD

Dr. Jackson was raised in Fort Lauderdale where his love for dentistry began by spending time in his father’s dental practice. He went on to study biology at Stetson University in Deland, Florida, where he met his wife Kelli and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Dr. Jackson then went on to attended Nova Southeastern College of Dental Medicine, where he was accepted as part of the Prosthodontic Honors Program and graduated with his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Upon completion of his doctorate, he continued his education and training by completing the general practice residency program at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center. Dr. Jackson obtained invaluable experience during his time at the VA, which shaped him into the well rounded, compassionate practitioner he is today. He has also spent time offering his services to underserved communities here locally at the Christian Care Community Center and abroad at an orphanage in Baja, Mexico.

Dr. Jackson is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Florida Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.

At Balanced Dental, Dr. Jackson believes in developing relationships with his patients which allow him provide comprehensive care tailored to fit into the lives his patients. His experience in general dentistry, including fixed and removable prosthodontics, dental implants, endodontics, extensive oral surgery and periodontal surgery allows him to offer a full range of restorative and preventative treatments to you and your family, all under one roof.

Out side of work Dr. Jackson loves to spend time with his wife Kelli, their three children. He also enjoys taking advantage of the recreational pursuits our area is known for: golfing, surfing and fishing.

Alyssa Carman – R.D.A.

Alyssa may not be a Florida native but she has adapted to the Florida life with style. Originally from Montauk, NY, she moved down here with her family and has grown up in and around Stuart, FL. She has a true passion for what she does and a far reaching understanding of the dental field. Educating patients on the importance of dental care and assisting them in reaching optimal oral health are of upmost importance to her. At Balanced Dental, she is an outstanding member of our team that is always willing to assist in any facet of the practice.

When Alyssa isn’t providing patients with outstanding care at Balanced Dental, you’ll find her outside enjoying all that our area has to offer. She enjoys boating, fishing and spending time at the beach. When it comes to football season, you’ll find her cheering on her beloved New York Giants.

She has a tremendous drive for her work, providing patients with the knowledge and care in any way she can. We are delighted to have her as part of our team because Erika is very enthusiastic and treats patients like family.

When Erika isn’t providing exceptional patient care, she is enjoying her time with her husband Patrick, her 3 daughters, Alyssa, Adrianna, and Addison. She also enjoys shopping, being outdoors, boating and being at the Florida beaches.
