We are so happy to welcome Dr. Jacob Bleyer to the Bankhead family! Dr. Jacob grew up in southern Illinois and recently finished his residency at Texas A&M College of Dentistry. He is thrilled to be back in the Saint Louis area doing what he loves. He enjoys coming to work every day and has already experienced the rewards of making a difference in patients’ lives.
“It’s amazing to witness how people transform over the course of orthodontic treatment,” says Dr. Jacob. “I can’t think of anything better than watching someone marvel at their new smile for the first time — and seeing the confidence it brings them.”
Dr. Jacob learned the newest advancements in treatment techniques during his residency, including 3D printing, digital scanning and Invisalign. He looks forward to bringing bright new smiles to both children and adults while working with the Experts in the Art of Orthodontics.
Outside the Office
Dr. Bleyer loves travel and has been an avid scuba diver for over a decade. As a lifetime St. Louis Cardinals and Blues fan, he enjoys attending live sports events as well as music concerts.
“There’s nothing like the way St. Louis fans rally around their teams,” he says. “I’m so happy to live and work in such an amazing city.”
