About Dr. Jon Robinson
Family and Community
Dr. Robinson grew up in Grants Pass and is the youngest of four children. He enjoyed his youth playing sports, skiing the slopes of the beautiful Oregon mountains, and fishing the local rivers and lakes with his father and siblings. Shortly after graduating from high school, he moved to Ecuador to serve a voluntary church mission. Upon returning home from Ecuador, he continued his education, earning undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral degrees from three highly-esteemed universities.
In 2004, after completing his 30-month orthodontic specialty residency, Dr. Robinson and his wife moved back to Grant Pass, build a home and established Robinson Orthodontics. They and their five… yes 5 daughters… are so pleased to now be back in the home town of his youth. They are happiest when they are spending time together as a family. Summers are spent enjoying the warm weather while boating on our beautiful lakes, running down balls on the soccer field or tennis court, and enjoying an occasional round of golf. Spring and fall are spent out on Oregon’s many rivers and lakes - trout, steelhead and salmon fishing and carrying on the traditions of his youth. His family’s newest winter activity is snow skiing at Mt. Ashland and Mt. Bachelor.
Dr. Robinson is actively involved in his church. He provides leadership to the youth and helps facilitate youth programs. As an orthodontic practice, he sponsors and supports a variety of local charities, events, athletic teams and our schools .
“I feel extremely blessed to have one of the best jobs in the world! It is so rewarding to increase the self-confidence and self-esteem of children and adults alike by helping them love to smile. I am so fortunate to have the unique opportunity to get to know each of my patients and watch their personalities and lives change as their smiles are transformed into something truly beautiful! The people of our community have been so good to us, and It gives me great pleasure to be able to give back to the community I have called “Home” since my youth”.
Education and Continuing Education
Dr. Robinson attended Brigham Young University, where he graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Psychology. Upon graduating from BYU, Dr. Robinson was excited to learn that he had been accepted at one of the top dental schools in the nation – The Oregon Health and Sciences University. He graduated from the OHSU School of Dentistry with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree.
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Robinson moved to Utah, where he and a fellow colleague established a dental partnership that quickly became one of the premier cosmetic dental practices in the greater Salt Lake City area. It was during this time in Utah that he met Kelly – his best friend, soul mate, and the love of his life.
While cosmetic dentistry proved to be something that he loved and excelled at, his true professional passion was in the field of orthodontics, and so after 8 years in the business of esthetic dentistry, Dr. Robinson once again decided to advance his education and apply for orthodontic residency. He and Kelly were thrilled to learn that the renowned Loma Linda University had accepted him into their prestigious orthodontic program. The newly-wed couple packed up their belongings and moved to sunny Southern California, where they began their new life together, embarked on a new career path, and started their new family.
Upon completing the rigorous 30-month orthodontic specialty training program at LLU, he received his Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. During his dental education, Dr. Robinson completed research that has been referenced multiple times in published professional journals.
Dr. Robinson is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists as well as the American Dental Association and the Oregon Dental Association. He is also a past president and current member of the Rogue Valley Dental Society. In 2007, Dr. Robinson received the distinction of ‘Board Certified Orthodontist’ from the American Board of Orthodontics. He has always strived to be the best at what he does, and he is committed to furthering his education to remain on the leading edge of the orthodontic profession.
“Because the field of orthodontics is constantly evolving, I place a high premium on continuing my education. In order to provide my patients the most technologically-advanced treatment that an orthodontist can offer, I attend continuing education courses several times a year, and I constantly employ the most advanced techniques and materials available to our profession.”
What does all of this mean for you, our patients? It’s fairly simple! It means that the patients who receive orthodontic care from Dr. Robinson can feel assured that they are receiving orthodontic treatment from a certified orthodontic specialist that excelled in all areas of his specialty training. It also means that his patients can feel confident they are receiving technologically advanced, high quality and efficient orthodontic treatment. Perhaps most importantly, it means that his patients know that they are going to receive the beautiful smile they’ve always desired.
Prior to becoming an Orthodontist, Dr. Robinson practiced Cosmetic Dentistry for eight years. The experienced gained during this early time in his career is something that he uses every day now that he is an orthodontic specialist.
“Not a day goes by that I don’t draw upon the knowledge I gained as a practicing dentist. Whether it’s evaluating a patient’s dental condition, or communicating complex, inter-disciplinary treatment with my dental colleagues, there is no substitute for having done it myself for all those years. I’m so grateful for the experience I gained as a dentist prior to specializing in orthodontics. I’m a much better orthodontist because of it!”
Dr. Robinson has been in the exclusive practice of orthodontics since 2004 and is dedicated to providing quality care in a fun, happy and upbeat environment. It has been said that "The highest compliment a doctor can receive is the referral of your friends, family and business associates.” He feels honored to have treated and received countless referrals from previous patients, our community, professional colleagues and dentists alike.
