About Us

Meet Your Orthodontic Health Advocate

Every journey starts with a single step, and orthodontic treatment is no different. We love being part of the process and think you’ll appreciate it as it unfolds, too.

We look forward to witnessing your smile and confidence blossom before our eyes!


What Sets Us Apart?

Dr. Shih has a bachelor’s degree and a master's degree in engineering which has allowed him to have a deeper understanding of tooth movement. He has maximized efficiency which means a smoother treatment for patients like you. 

Jacksonville Modern Orthodontics supports your community. Part of your braces support Communities in Schools to help at-risk students graduate.  Dr. Shih regularly donates his time reading to kids at Wood Acres Elementary school, tutoring kids STEM-related classes like robotics camp at DuPont Middle School and provides free dental care at Sulzbacher dental clinic.

Your Orthodontic Team

At Jacksonville Modern Orthodontics, we're passionate about providing the best possible orthodontic care. We understand that a healthy smile can be life changing, and are here to help you achieve your most beautiful smile! We're happy to answer any questions you have along the way and work with you to get the smile you deserve.


Community Involvement

We are passionate about equal access to education. We are a proud partner of Communities in Schools to support students who are at high risk of dropping out. Each time we put on braces, $40 will be donated to help students stay in school. Currently, the funds purchase graduation gowns and fees for those who otherwise could not afford to walk.
