North Caddo Medical Center welcomes Cristin Jackson, DMD. Dr. Jackson signed a contract with NCMC on June 15, 2021 for full-time employment as the medical center’s primary dentist. Dr. Jackson will be the sole medical provider of NCMC’s newest service line, Vivian Dental. The dental practice will be in the Vivian Medical & Surgical Family Practice Clinic.
Dr. Jackson recently graduated with her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in Louisville, Kentucky. She is originally from Shreveport and completed her undergraduate at the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Her graduate program was completed at Louisiana State University Shreveport, where she earned a Master of Science in Biological Sciences.
Vivian Dental will provide general dentistry services, which include preventative care, fillings, root canals, and more. Dr. Jackson’s clinical rotation experience includes pediatrics, endodontics, periodontics, and other areas that will benefit the new practice. There is no opening date at this time; however, NCMC plans to begin accepting patients in a temporary building behind their main facility. Construction is currently in progress to provide a permanent structure for Vivian Dental in the Vivian Medical & Surgical. The construction is expected to be completed by January 2022.
Dr. Jackson’s husband, Ricky Jackson, Pharm-D, is originally from Vivian and a North Caddo High School graduate. The couple is looking forward to being a part of the community and NCMC Family.
Vivian Dental and Dr. Jackson will accept all insurances, including Medicaid. Private pay will also be welcomed.
