  1. Henry L. Jackson, Jr. Portrait

    Henry L. Jackson, Jr., DDS

    General Dentist

    At Harvard School of Public Health Summer Program in Quantitative Sciences, Dr. Jackson, Jr. learned how science and math can have an intimate relationship, and he pursued an undergraduate degree in mathematics followed by an academic scholarship to pursue post-graduate education at the New York University College of Dentistry. To become a true master, he knew more was needed of him and completed a residency program in Brooklyn, New York where him and his team treated almost 48,000 patients in just twelve months. After this arduous, yet rewarding journey, he is more prepared and motivated than ever to combine his scientific acumen and artistic skill for the rest of his life, and give you the perfect smile you have always desired.

    Recently relocated to North Carolina, Dr. Jackson Jr. hails from the big apple. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, he is the first doctor in his family, but has a long list of accolades. An avid learner with the desire to master his passions, he taught himself the art of music at a very young age.

    He wrote and produced songs in a homemade studio which received tremendous applause from his fans. He wanted to share this talent with his community and performed as his church’s solo drummer every Sunday since his teens. Unbeknownst to him, this was the same church where he would propose to the love of his life several years later! On other days, he trained in martial arts, boxing and Jiu Jitsu, but he had one more interest – science.

    Say hello to Dr. Henry Jackson, Jr.!
