I had my first visit/consultation today and I couldn’t be more pleased with your office. Not only was it clean and easy to find but everyone in that office was so wonderful and friendly. I'm feeling confident and excited about getting braces, that alone made the visit worth while. Thanks again, and see you soon, Dr. Jacobson!

I'm absolutely pleased with my new smile. Dr. Jacobson and his team were very friendly and treated me like family every step of the way. I really appreciate them & all they have done to correct my teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Jacobson and his team to anybody looking into braces. I smile all day everyday now!

Five stars for Doctor Richard Jacobson, SinusCenterLA, Dr. Amoils and their entire team! I had headaches, sinus and nose congestion and mild sleep apnea and it is 100% gone. What a difference! It is amazing what a good nights sleep can do. They have state of the art navigational equipment that makes the procedure soooo much easier with much less down time vs traditional surgery. I couldn’t be happier and recommend them highly.

By staying on the cutting edge, we are able to give the best care, hands down. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing you are happy. Let us know if we can do anything else for you. Best, Dr. Jacobson

I have nothing but great things to say about my treatment with Dr. Jacobson! I've been a patient since 2015 and I'm very happy with my results. I had a really complicated TMJ issue, and other doctors told me it would take 3 years to prep me for surgery. Dr. Jacobson was able to get me ready for jaw surgery in just one year. He is a true artist and expert in his field. He is also one of the kindest doctors I have ever come across! Thank you for my beautiful smile!
Hi Rosa, we are pleased to have excelled in getting you the beautiful smile you deserve. It's been our pleasure to help you for all these years. Thank you for the high complements, it means a lot to us. Sincerely, Dr. Jacobson

My family has been coming to Dr. Jacobson for generations, and if he is still practicing I will bring my kids to him. What he did for my mom is remarkable. His work literally changed my life. I had a substantial overbite and other issues as a child that he not only fixed, but did so in a way that didn't ruin my childhood. Between attention to detail, patience and quality of end result there is none better. He is also a really nice guy to boot. Worth every penny, truly an artist.
Hi Alon, I deeply appreciate your feedback. It means a lot to have the trust of your family through generations. Our team is happy to hear that we have changed your life. That makes our work very rewarding. It's always a pleasure to take care of you and your loved ones. We'll see you next time. Best, Dr. Jacobson

Dr. Jacobson has been a dream. My TMJ issues went unchecked for years and definitely caused me some problems. Dr. Jacobson and his team have completely fixed the issue, and I truly feel like a new man. Also, he has really great facilities. The fact that everything was top of the line/state-of-the-art really made me feel more comfortable that I was exactly where I needed to be. Thank you, Dr. Jacobson

His is a beautiful office and there are many skilled workers always bustling about. I was amazed... Everyone was extremely kind and accommodating. The brain damage I suffered impacts my short-term memory and I can rarely recall anyone's name, especially when confronted with a large office full of pretty faces. I can't imagine the number of times I've called one of them by the wrong name, but they never miss a beat, never bat an eye. Dr. Jacobson is a master of his craft!
Hello Adam, we appreciate your kind words. It's rewarding to hear that you feel cared for here, our top priority is to give our patients the utmost care. We look forward to seeing you next time. Regards, Dr. Jacobson

I never used to smile before Dr. Jacobson, but now I'm all teeth! Although I did have to wait for about 20 minutes, Dr Jacobson was charismatic, engaging and made me feel like he truly cared. He showed me high-tech images and videos to show how he could move my teeth and correct my bite. His offices are state-of-the-art, like nowhere I've been before. I trust Dr. Jacobson with my smile, and I highly recommend his expertise. Thanks Dr. J!
Hi Vince, thank you for the positive feedback. We're so happy you have a smile you don't want to hide! We're proud to be able to give people great care. Sorry about the wait, we hope to do better next time. Best, Dr. Jacobson

Dr. Richard Jacobson is hands down, the finest Orthodontists in Los Angeles! He and his office come highly recommended, and my personal experience with both him and his incredible staff have been nothing short of truly exceptional. The perfectionism and excellence with which he runs his practice shines through in so many ways that it would be impossible to express everything that he deserves to have expressed about him in this limited review...suffice to say - he's fantastic!!!
Hi Steve, I'm thrilled to provide great care for you. We're flattered to hear that you feel we strive for perfection. It's important to us that you are treated like you deserve. Looking forward to seeing you next time. Sincerely, Dr. Jacobson

It's been an absolute dream to be under the care of Dr. Jacobson. His high level of confidence and attention to detail is what every patient would want from a doctor. His offices are state-of-the-art and like no other doctors office than I've ever been in; extremely cutting-edge equipment and a great staff. I had a complicated TMJ issue, but I couldn't have been more comfortable with an at-ease mind while under his treatment and care. Two thumbs up, 10 stars, and so on...Thank you Dr. J!

Dr. Rick Jacobson and his staff are streets ahead of any other orthodontic group I visited. Their professionalism and attention to detail is inspiring. They took my ugly teeth and awful smile and created a major transformation in my look, my bite and my general oral health. I now have a great smile that I get compliments on. The office staff were caring and very professional. From the moment you step in Dr. Jacobson's office you know you're getting top-notch care. I feel lucky to have found them
Hello Jay, we're happy to have given you a great smile that you get compliments on! It's encouraging to hear that you find our practice inspiring. I'll let everyone know to keep up the great work. Feel free to contact us if there's anything else you need. Best, Dr. Jacobson

Great Doctor! Great place! Highly recommended! My Daughter been going to Dr. Jacobson to get her teeth straightened. She had to have a partial Jaw reshaping that did that worked wonders for not only her general health, but also her self-esteem. Her breathing and sleeping habits have also greatly improved over the years! We thank you Dr. Jacobson for your attentiveness and care!

Dr. Jacobson is absolutely the best! My wife and I both suffer from TMJ (my own being much more acute than my wife). Although we needed different treatments, Dr. Jacobson ensured that we both got our issues taken care of. Thank you, Dr. Jacobson! We're forever grateful!
Hello Sam, I'm happy to have been able to help you both with your conditions. I take great care to make sure and treat everyone as an individual in order to best treat you. I am happy to hear that you are both doing well and I have been able to help. Feel free to call if there is anything else I can do. Best, Dr. Jacobson

I could not find a better doctor than Dr.Jacobson. Extremely knowledgeable in his filed. It is five star care in all respects. I had a previous bad experience with my teeth and bite that he was able to fully resolve working with his team of specialist. What a difference!! I'm very grateful that I found a doctor and staff that care that much. I highly recommend them.
Hi Jennifer, Thank you very much for this kind review. I'm thrilled to hear that you have been pleased with our dental care and I'm very glad that we've been able to find a treatment that worked! Looking forward to seeing you next time. Dr. Jacobson
He was a very nice man. Took care of all my needs in the same day. I have been suffering from tmj so I made an appointment. As soon as I saw him he took 3d photos of metro see what was going on. The he was able to make impression and have my retainer ready the next day. Pretty impressive
