Orthodontic treatment isn't just about straightening teeth — it's about trust, expertise, and a commitment to your smile's success. At Summit Orthodontics, we embody these values every day.

If you’re in or around Jackson or Charlotte, get ready for an exceptional orthodontic journey with a practice that puts you and your family first.

Leadership You Can Count On

Dr. Jessica Backinger, fondly known as "Dr. B," is your trusted orthodontist. Born and raised in Jackson, Dr. B returned to her roots with her husband, Douglas, to start a family here.

She is a graduate of Kalamazoo College, University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry, and the Orthodontic Department of Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (formerly UMDNJ).

Dr. B's commitment to orthodontics extends beyond her practice. She teaches part-time at the University of Detroit Mercy's orthodontic department and shares her expertise through national lectures.
