Dr. Kirsch – Dentist on the Upper West Side
Meet Jacob J. Kirsch, DDS
I firmly believe dentistry is more than just creating oral health for my patients. It’s about developing long-term relationships with each person, becoming partners in improving and maintaining their dental and overall health. I strive to establish open lines of communication and trust with each patient: they need to feel comfortable telling me about their care goals and concerns. They also need to trust me to deliver treatment that will help them develop a healthy, incredible smile.
Being a dentist means I am able to make positive changes in the lives of remarkable people. Whether I am eliminating dental pain, restoring function, or creating a beautiful smile, that person is going to be happier at the end of the treatment. It’s truly a joy to spend my days helping people. I can’t imagine a better profession!
My Education & Commitment to Continuing Education
I attended Brooklyn College, CUNY, and then was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at New York University Dental. After receiving my DDS, I completed a residency at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn Heights, NY.
I’ve been practicing dentistry since 1993 and each year pursue many hours of continuing education. This is a constantly evolving field, and my patients trust I will provide them with leading-edge care. Continuing education ensures I exceed their expectations.

My Dental Team
I’ve assembled an incredible group of people for my dental team. Each is warm and personable, and they are all experienced professionals, as well. Together, we work hard to make sure each patient has a positive, painless visit, and leaves with a happy smile.
In the Community – Teaching Children About Oral Hygiene
I know it’s essential to educate children about their dental health. Learning how to properly brush and floss is important. It’s also important that kids understand how keeping their teeth healthy means their bodies will be healthier, too. I volunteer my time visiting local schools, teaching the children how to keep their smiles in great condition.
