Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Starting as a senior in high school, Dr. Jacobs aspired to be a dentist. He was always interested in the sciences and liked working with his hands, so the profession sounded like a good fit on the surface. After speaking with other dentists, his path was set, and he couldn’t be happier with the decision he made all those decades ago.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jacobs attended Virginia Commonwealth University/the Medical College of Virginia to obtain his dental degree. He moved to Newport News after briefly practicing in Florida to join his father-in-law, and this is the office he still works at today, now alongside his brother-in-law, our own Dr. Michael Link.
Over the years, Dr. Jacobs has consistently taken continuing education courses, enabling him to stay on top of the latest advancements in dentistry. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry.
