“The best thing about practicing orthodontics is the ability to share in the rewards of treatment with your patients. After the braces are removed, it’s sometimes dramatic how much an adolescent’s confidence improves with his or her new smile. Adult patients always take great satisfaction in fixing their problems and finally achieving that perfect alignment they had been looking for.” – Dr. Izzi
Dr. Jason Izzi is passionate about the field of orthodontics and his ability to improve the health and well-being of others. He grew up with a medical background. His father is an orthopedic surgeon who has practiced medicine for 40 years in the same location Dr. Izzi now shares.
Growing up with his father, Dr. Izzi saw many examples of how his studies and hard work gave him the skills to help others. He took that very seriously throughout his dental education and still enjoys the aspect of medicine that allows him to learn and improve his skills continually for the benefit of his patients.
Education and Experience
Dr. Izzi chose to pursue a career in dentistry and spent ten years in Boston completing the necessary degrees. He earned his undergraduate degree at Boston College. He received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from Tufts University, where he was awarded a merit scholarship. To specialize in orthodontics, Dr. Izzi attended Boston University and completed two years of study in orthodontics and craniofacial orthopedics.
At Boston University, he studied under Dr. Anthony Gianelly, a world-renowned lecturer, author of several textbooks on orthodontics, and founder of the bi-dimensional technique. Dr. Izzi now practices that technique along with several others to provide the most efficient treatment possible.
After completing his education, Dr. Izzi moved back to Rhode Island. He opened two practices, in the areas where he and his families had grown up. It is with great satisfaction that he uses what he learned to serve those communities.
Outside the Office
Dr. Izzi grew up in Lincoln, Rhode Island and lived in North Providence for ten years before moving to North Kingstown in 2008. Outside the office, Dr. Izzi likes to spend time with his wife Kimberly, their children, Santino and Jayci, and their two dogs and two cats.
