Hope Jackson – Operations Director, Registered Dental Hygienist, Certified Orofacial Myologist
Hope attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 2003. She has been working in dentistry since 1997, while still in high school. She is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists Auxillary, while working towards a fellow accreditation. She’s also earned her LANAP Advanced Laser and Dawson Academy Functional Occlusion certifications and has received her Orofacial Pain Continuum in 2018 at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. Hope’s passion for full-body health and learning has led her to specialize in myofunctional therapy and treatments to address orofacial pain, TMD, and growth and development. She studied myofunctional therapy through multiple educational avenues, becoming a certified myologist in 2020 through the IAOM. Her passion for education means that her long list of certifications and specializations is always broadening and diversifying, ensuring that the patients at Jackson Dental know that every possible treatment is considered before she makes her co-diagnosis with the doctors.
Working alongside her husband, Dr. Christopher Jackson, they both strive to provide patients the very best in oral health care for a smile that lasts a lifetime. Hope wears many important hats around the office, including myofunctional therapist, treatment coordinator, and operations director. She loves working with the talented, caring Jackson Dental team to help patients understand their oral health condition and show them all of the wonderful ways they can make a difference in patients’ lives. Hope says the practice is distinct in the way the doctors and team truly care about the people they treat, along with their unmatched expertise.
Together, she and Dr. Christopher enjoy raising their four children. Hope spends her free time with her family – outdoors – camping and reading while enjoying a great glass of wine. She says life is about people — loving people and ultimately God. She’s passionate about her faith in God and His plans for everyone. Her family is very active in the church and the community.
