After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, he attended dental school at the University of Detroit Mercy. Immediately following dental school, he pursued post-graduate education at the Medical College of Ohio in Toledo in a general practice residency. He stayed on for a second year as a fellow so that he could receive a master’s degree in dentistry. His thesis was based on caring for fearful dental patients.
He began private practice in Brooklyn in 1995.
Dr. Jacobs takes a great amount of pride in keeping with the latest in education for the benefit of his patients.

His involvement with the Institute continues through attendance and participation with his Pankey study group that was formed over 10 years ago. The study group consists of Institute attendees who are highly committed to the best dentistry they can provide. They are from all across the country, spending time on clinical skills, philosophy, personal growth and most recent, nurturing the formation of additional study groups.
