Restoring smiles, Changing lives!
My name is Dr. Natalie Jackson, and it has been my pleasure to serve the people of New Orleans as a general dentist since 2007. On behalf of our team, thank you for your interest in our services and welcome to NOLA Smiles Dental Solutions!
My background in dentistry is relatively unique, where my position as a DLT before becoming a general dentist has equipped me with two distinct, complementary perspectives. Think of it as being both an architect and a builder, but for the mouth. As such, I am able to diagnose, plan, prepare, manufacture and deliver the lifelike prosthetics that my patients will depend on for years to come. It’s been my passion to stay ahead of the cutting edge in order to provide the best experience for my patients, so I continuously pursue research, collaboration and investments in technology.
Whenever possible, I leverage my diverse education and modern equipment to offer my patients effective solutions to their dental problems. “Restoring smiles, Changing lives” is more than just a tagline in my practice, as I focus on providing the following advanced dental services for my patients:
I am pleased to offer my services in a warm, professional environment with compassion, good humor and a gentle touch. No one can achieve great results alone, however, and I am thankful to have an excellent team of committed professionals supporting my work. The brand of dentistry we offer is amazing and transformative – when lives are changed and self-esteem, career and relationships are improved it is truly heart-warming and makes all of the effort worth it!

What do our patients have to say about us?
What should I expect at my first visit?
Your first visit with our team begins with a review of both your medical and dental history, as well as a discussion of what you want for your smile. We want to address not only your immediate concerns (e.g., “I just broke my tooth”), but also the long-term goals you may have for your oral health and appearance (e.g., “I want to be able to confidently smile again”). Your feedback will allow Dr. Jackson to make recommendations that are designed to help your smile in the context of your unique circumstances and preferences.
Your Comprehensive Evaluation with Dr. Jackson also includes an assessment of the following dental problems and conditions:
In order to provide Dr. Jackson with the ability to properly assess your current situation, we utilize digital radiographs (“x-rays”) and photographs. Many dental problems and conditions cannot be adequately diagnosed solely with a manual examination. For situations involving Dental Implants and/or Orthodontics, we also utilize our 3D imaging process to take advantage of the best possible information for the planning of your treatment options.
Your first visit will result in a proposed plan of treatment by Dr. Jackson that seeks to provide you with a beautiful, natural, lasting smile. At that point, you will be able to discuss the financial and timing aspects of your treatment with Alaina, our Treatment Coordinator. Once you’re ready to proceed, we will do our utmost to provide you with an exceptional experience as we serve you!
