What Our patients Say

Ilenia P.

“Dr Jakob is highly competent, knowledgeable and professional. My experience in his office was excellent. He knew how to treat my conditions, he was honest and confident. My root canal was the easiest dentist treatment I have ever received. I felt no pain during the procedure nor after. His staff is very careful and competent as well. His office is clean, and has state of the art equipment. His administrative staff is also very kind and professional. I can only speak highly of Dr Jakob and his practice, and I will recommend him to anyone forever.”  

Paul A.

“I was traveling and needed an endodontist for an emergency root canal due to a suddenly infected tooth. Dr. Jakob’s wonderful staff was very understanding and was able to fit me in despite my limiting travel schedule. Once I came in, I realized that the genuine kindness and care extended throughout the entire staff all the way up to the doctor. Dr. Jakob took the time to answer any and all questions, had a very gentle and professional touch, and made sure to make the whole procedure as painless as possible (literally!—I was truly amazed at how smooth and painless a root canal could possibly be!). Needless to say, I hope my teeth always remain healthy, but if I ever do need another root canal, I would unhesitatingly travel halfway around the world just to have it done by Dr. Jakob. He has earned my trust, respect, and highest recommendation.”
