He is a prosthodontist – specialising in the restoration and replacement of teeth – and in 1985 was among the Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic team that received the first formal training for dental implants in the UK, which became his area of special interest.
Dr Jacobs co-authored the textbook Dental Implant Restoration: Principles and Procedures which was published in 2011 and contributed to another textbook on the restoration of natural teeth. He has also been published in medical journals. His prosthodontic work at Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic includes fixed, partial and removable dentures, implants and general aesthetic dentistry such as crowns, bridges, full mouth reconstructions and aesthetic restorations.
He is a member of the American Academy of Osseointegration and the American Dental Society of London, and registered on the American Embassy Dental List. He has lectured throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and worldwide on Implants and was a consultant for Biomet 3i one of the largest implant companies in the world.
Following the acquisition of Harley Street Dental & Implant Clinic, Dr Jacobs has also been awarded the position of Regional Clinic Lead at Portman, assisting our other dentist in the South East area with clinical issues and compliance.
