Dr. Jason Rice
Dr. Jason Rice has been drawn to the arts and sciences his whole life and was originally interested in pursuing architecture and orthodontics, both of which require an eye for detail, puzzle-solving mentality, and artistic ability.
After spending two years in an orthodontist’s chair undergoing his own treatment, Dr. Rice knew that the field of orthodontics was going to be the intersection that would allow him to do good work helping others while also allowing him to blend the art and science side of dentistry.
