WELCOME to Dr. Robert Jacob's orthodontic office.

Freeway Close - Located in Kearny Mesa

We have a smile for you!

 We have been designing great smiles for San Diego since 1971  located  in Kearny Mesa with easy  access from the 163 and 805 Freeway.  See  the Contact page for a map  and directions. We put you and your family  first. Let us bring out the great smile in you and your children! We work  with you to provide excellent care. Braces can be expensive in time and  cost. We invite you to our office for your orthodontic needs or for a  second opinion! 

 Our team builds new smiles for children, teens and adults. Care can be  as uncomplicated as a replacement retainer, a small touch-up, or as  complex as remaking an entire face including oral and plastic surgery.

 Dr. Jacob also provides special care for infants and children with cleft  palates and other facial problems through Rady Children's Hospital, San  Diego, Kaiser Permanente and Navy Hospital.

 Dr. Jacob was trained at  Northwestern University and received specialty  training in infant care at  New York University.   He is the only orthodontist on staff at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego where he has been Department Chair of Dentistry. Also he participates with the international cleft care team of ConnectMed International. Other positions have included being  an instructor for both UCLA Department of Pediatric Dentistry and for Lutheran Medical Pediatric Dental Training Program.

Dr. Jacob also serves as a consultant to the State of California, California Children's Services and Delta Dental of California.

 Our team includes skilled staff with more than 40 combined years working with Dr. Jacob to make your care unique to your needs.  We design and build better smiles, better health, and  greater self confidence.

 We have several types of braces to suit your requirements. Our office is  contracted with most insurance plans, PPO and HMO.  Payment plans are flexible and designed to fit your budget.
