Scott Jackson, DDS
Dr. Jackson was raised in a small town outside of Jackson, Mississippi (Florence, MS). He always knew he wanted to serve in some way, and after high school, he decided to join the U.S. Navy soon after September 11, 2001. He served onboard the USS Jacksonville (SSN 699), which is a “fast-attack” submarine. Dr. Jackson was stationed in many different areas, including Norfolk, Virginia; Great Lakes, Illinois; and Kittery, Maine.
After his service in the military, Dr. Jackson wanted to continue that service while pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a dentist. When he finished his time in the military, he decided to go back to college to make that dream become a reality. He graduated from Belhaven University (Jackson, Mississippi) with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. Immediately after completing his undergraduate studies, Dr. Jackson was accepted to Loma Linda University School of Dentistry’s Doctor of Dental Surgery program. He was chair of the Ethics Committee through all four years of dental school. While attending dental school, Dr. Jackson made many lifelong friends, some of which were his very own patients who still contact him to this day.
Being from a low-income family and struggling to afford dental care as a kid, he has always been passionate about serving those who genuinely do not have the means to pay for it. He has served at many underprivileged schools in the greater Los Angeles area and has also served on an international mission trip to Valle de Angeles, Honduras, in fall 2014.
He also met his wife Holly while attending school. Holly, a middle school music teacher, is originally from Hemet, California. One of Dr. Jackson’s favorite things to do when he’s not providing dental care to his patients is to go and listen to how amazingly well Holly’s kids perform in their bi-annual musical concerts. He and Holly share another passion, which is rescuing stray dogs. They have two rescues: a 10-year-old Chihuahua named Gracie Lynn and a two-year-old Border Collie named NOLA.
On February 17, 2018, Dr. Jackson and his wife Holly welcomed their precious baby girl Ellen ("Ellie") Grace Jackson into the world. Then on September 26, 2019, they welcomed their second daughter, Nora Anne Jackson.
Like many southerners, Dr. Jackson is a passionate football fan and also enjoys hiking, weight-lifting/cross-training, deep-sea fishing, and hunting. The most important things to him are his faith in God, his wife, and his two girls. He takes extra pride in the relationships he develops with patients and in providing them with the absolute most comfortable experience possible. He loves his patients like they are his very own family and believes that is the way it should be. Dr. Jackson continues to take as many continuing education (CE) classes as possible to offer his patients the most relaxing, most up-to-date treatment available.
