Dr. John (Jay) Reichheld

Dr. Jay came to the world of orthodontics the old fashioned way…he followed in his father’s footsteps!

Growing up in Lexington Dr. Jay attended The Belmont Hill School where he first became captivated by science and technology. Dr. Jay went on to Colgate University where he received a degree in Biology. Studying abroad at Colgate, he had the opportunity to examine art and architecture and gain a sense of classic esthetics. Looking back at this experience, it was at this point Dr. Jay recognized the value of combining art, science, and technology. Dentistry has often been said to be a career that combines these disparate studies. With that knowledge Dr. Jay attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Graduating with a DMD degree he went on to attend the Tufts graduate program and received a post graduate certificate in orthodontics in 1987.

Dr. Jay joined his father’s successful orthodontic practice in Lowell and Lexington. Now, with his brother Dr. Steve, his nephews Dr. Steve Jr. and Dr. Tim, and Dr. Brian Ting he continues to care for generations of patients. It is a real thrill to see the children or former patients and to continue a legacy of creating beautiful smiles for more than 50 years.

Dr. Jay is a member of several local and national dental societies including The American Association of Orthodontics, The Northeastern Society of Orthodontics, The American Dental Society, The Massachusetts Dental Society, The Merrimack Valley Dental Society, The Greater Lowell Dental Society (past president), and The Northeast Dental Society (past president). Dr. Jay is a Diamond Invisalign provider, Top 1% in the Nation.

Dr. Jay lives in Carlisle with his wife Linda. Many former and present patients will remember Linda managing the orthodontic office in the early years as an orthodontic assistant and treatment coordinator. Jay and Linda have three children.
