Dr. Jake Gerard

“Some patients ask, ‘Well, can’t I just wait? You’re just lining up the teeth. These teeth are straight.’ So, I think a lot of people don’t see that it’s more than just lining up teeth. It’s the size of jaws; it’s the airways. We want to educate patients about the big picture.”
~ Dr. Gerard

Dr. Gerard chose the field of dentistry because he enjoys working with people and having the ability to change their lives for the better.

He received his bachelor’s degree from Idaho State University and his dental degree from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has been practicing dentistry since 2008 and enjoys staying on top of the advances in his field, pursuing continuing education in implants, sleep dentistry, early orthodontics, growth guidance, and Invisalign®.

Dr. Gerard and his wife Kayleen have two girls and three boys. They love spending time outdoors, including camping, backpacking, mountain biking and off-road motorcycling. Dr. Gerard also served a two-year mission in Iowa for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
