David C. Jackson, DMD

DOCTOR
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 International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Atlantic Coast Conference, the Florida Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. As well as being a S.M.A.R.T Certified dentist.

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.

Outside 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.
