Dr.Jerome and his team were extremely polite and caring. My original orthodontist is in Monterey,CA and despite that they were able to see me and fix a bracket that had broke. They were so gentle and informative with the care that they provided. The office was clean and well organized. I would highly recommend this office to others seeking friendly and caring orthodontics.

Dr. Jerome and his staff are professional, kind & always so helpful. Their knowledge & experience, combined with their skills & service made this an easy choice for our family. Two of our children and I have had amazing results with Dr. Jerome’s treatment plan & our younger daughter can’t wait to start Invisalign too! The environment is really fun & friendly, we felt at Home as soon as we walked in. I really love how dedicated Dr. Jerome is to his work & patients. We highly recommend Signature Orthodontics!

Lynn P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jerome is fabulous. You can trust his expertise and wonderful care. Dr. Jerome does what he says to help you, is caring and kind, is highly skilled, listens carefully, and will see things through so that your results are the best! Signature Orthodontics has the latest, up to date facilities and equipment including a 3 D scanner. Dr. J’s staff; Brooke, Diana, and John are excellent at their jobs and this office is a very pleasant place for sure. Over the years my 2 kids and I have received orthodontic care at 3 other offices and I can honestly say that our experience at Dr. Jerome’s has been exemplary.

Shane H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’d like to preface this by saying the following. I’m not a huge social media guy, and I actually just created my Yelp account, specifically to make this review. Secondly, I can’t believe there are only 16 reviews for Dr J. He should have 1600! My wife and I had always thought about getting Invisalign. We’d go to the dentist and see the adds and pictures, but never gave it too much though and figured it would cost way too much. About two years ago, my fiance at the time met a lady by the name of Dr Femme Ambrosocio who is a pediatric dentist and she told my fiance to check an orthodontist named Dr Jerome who was located in her same building as her practice. We’ve both been fortunate so far in our lives to have relatively healthy and straight teeth. Neither of us had had braces or crazy dental procedures. After seeing Dr. J and consulting with other friends, my fiance decided that the price was good and that the payment plan was actually affordable. Long story short, she got half way through her tray process and we had enough saved up again in our HSA plan to where getting my teeth done too was an option. After my consultations and couple emails back and forth with Dr. J, I decided to do it. I helped rationalize the expense by telling myself that this was also a healthy decision as to avoid crowding and bite issues in the future, as no one is getting younger. Dr. J. is a military veteran as am I. His office is amazing! Clean, high tech, awesome staff and he often even has Star Wars movies playing on the big screens throughout the entire office. Now over a year later and finished with all my trays, I can tell you that as long as you can afford it, I think Invisilign is amazing and I couldn’t imagine the process being any better anywhere else. Thank you Dr. J. from Theresa and I. You will always get our glowing recommendations whenever the chance comes.

I have 3 children and 2 of them where in need of orthodontic services. I am sure the 3rd will need it as well sometime soon. About a year and a half ago we did some research and got 2 other opinions/quotes before choosing Dr. Jerome. We chose his office as he seemed to really care about my daughters and their needs. He makes you feel like you are important to him and he truly cares about providing you with A+++ service. I would highly recommend choosing Dr. Jerome’s office! He has taken great care of my girls!

AC. G. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Without a doubt, this is the best orthodontist in town. Not only is Dr Jerome very professional, his office is one of the nicest dental/orthodontic offices I have ever come across. Signature Orthodontics uses the highest quality materials and Dr. Jerome and his staff provide excellent service and quality care.  Everything in this office seems is the latest in technology and I can say that from the moment I walked in I felt very comfortable and at home. I just feel that Dr. Jerome cares a lot about his patients and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else for my orthodontic treatment.  Dr. Jerome is awesome!

Jen E. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot even tell you how long I searched for the right orthodontist for my kids. We had 2 going in for braces at the same time & I went to every single orthodontist in the Carmel Valley/4S Ranch/Solana Beach area. I was even inching into PQ & Poway, because as any mom in Carmel Valley will tell you the orthos here really have you in a vise. We went to all the evaluations & got all kinds of crazy plans and outrageous estimates. We were just about to pull the trigger on what we thought was the best deal for the money with the best orthodontist for our kids…and then we got an bottom of the 9th referral to Dr. Jerome. Walk off home run! Dr. J was perfect. Super personable, great with the kids, spent extra time answering all our questions and concerns and really went the extra mile to make sure we weren’t going to have to pay for “fixes” that we really didn’t need. The price was right, but I think more than that the person was right. He’s been amazing. He’s flexible with scheduling and is able to fit us in at times that work with the hectic schedules of overbooked middle schoolers. It also makes it easier for us knowing that girls don’t hate going to the orthodontist. They like their doctor, his staff and the office. I wouldn’t say they look forward to it — but they always come home with a fun story and in good spirits. We love Dr. J and cannot even imagine trusting our girls’ smiles to anyone else. Also, as an aside for the 92130 parents…the drive into 4S Ranch really has been so easy. I know that all the Carmel Valley orthos tell you that you need to be close, but I’ve found that we always get the appointment time we want, parking’s easy, & it’s only 10 minutes away from PHR.

I’m so glad I found Signature Orthodontics! Dr. Jerome and his staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They go above and beyond to help you! Their office is always clean, welcoming and has all the latest technology. They also make great recommendations for any dental services they don’t provide. I drive all the way up from La Jolla and don’t mind at all because they are that amazing! I love my new smile and highly recommend them!

Catherine H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could give Signature Orthodontics 10 stars, I would. Dr. Jerome, John, and everyone in the office is outstanding. Dr. Jerome uses the latest Invisalign technology (and I believe he’s currently a Diamond Provider), he’s proficient with it, and he provides thorough and meticulous orthodontic care. I had braces as a kid but my teeth shifted through adulthood. I initially tried Smile Direct Club, but it didn’t work for me at all. My teeth didn’t shift properly, the trays were horribly uncomfortable, and since all of the service was virtual, there was no way to fine-tune the adjustments as needed. I decided I needed a real orthodontist. I found Signature Orthodontics on Yelp, and signed up the same day of my consultation. I worked with Dr. Jerome using Invisalign for about a year and am absolutely thrilled with the results! Even as an adult, you would be surprised how important a confident smile is, both personally and professionally. One thing I really appreciated about Dr. Jerome’s office was that all of my visits were perfectly consistent: everyone was always friendly and happy, the space is clean and modern, and the care is always excellent. It is also easy to make appointments and they do their best to accommodate busy schedules. Most importantly, Dr. Jerome is thorough, careful, skilled, and just a genuinely great and funny person. That goes for everyone in the office. If you are on the fence about getting Invisalign, Dr. Jerome will not disappoint. Totally worth every penny.

Sandra N. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son just ended 2+ year treatment. He had a unique situation – no adult incisors. Dr. Jerome guided us every step of the way. He kept us informed and gave us his professional advice how to correct. Appointments were always booked in a timely manner & very quick visits but never busy for us to ask questions. The office staff was always very professional & kind. Brooke should also be commended for her assistance in scheduling and friendliness. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Jerome for your ortho treatment! We couldn’t be happier with the results!

Kristan P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Where do I start? Dr Jerome and his staff are phenomenal. As a dental hygienist I feel that I can be a little picky, but this office is great! To start, the office is really nice. It’s clean, professional and suitable for both child and adult patients. I decided to get braces as an adult and I was a little nervous that I would be awkward coming in. I was wrong, the office does have children coming in and out but it feels very comfortable for me too. Brooke and Diana are up front and from the moment you walk in, you feel welcomed. They do such a great job in everything from helping you decide what kind payment plan to use to what kind of ortho treatment fits your lifestyle best. These girls are so sweet, I love that they remember little things I brought up through out my appointments to chat about when I visit. Next in the back, they are efficient and friendly. The assistants are gentle and very skilled at their work. Dr Jerome is awesome. He is precise and very picky with his work. I love that in a dentist that I am trusting to help me get my perfect smile. He explains everything that he is performing as well as expectations from adjustment to adjustment. I really appreciate his way of working, it allows me to feel confident in my treatment and my choice of coming into his office. I will definitely be referring my own patients as well as friends to this office.

Tamara D. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Jerome is a fabulous orthodontist and his office and team are first class. My son is nearly done with his Damon braces (in just over a year) and I will start invisalign soon.  I have visited other orthodontia offices that did not make me feel comfortable, so chose not to use them.  After meeting Dr. Jerome at Signature Orthodontics I can assure you that there is no high pressure, they have state of the art technology, a spotless office, a caring staff and tremendous integrity. I highly recommend Signature Orthodontics for kids and adults.

Anina P. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so glad I found Signature Orthodontics! Dr. Jerome and his staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They go above and beyond to help you! Their office is always clean, welcoming and has all the latest technology. They also make great recommendations for any dental services they don’t provide. I drive all the way up from La Jolla and don’t mind at all because they are that amazing! I love my new smile and highly recommend them!

Greg L. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been very pleased with the service and most of all the welcoming environment. I’m an adult with braces and the treatment has been great. Gentle service. Respectful of my goals and diagnoses have been direct and sincere. What really impressed me was the open environment, cleanliness and the use of technology. They’re office works on apple (iMacs) and for me that is an indication of how important state of the art technology was to Dr. Jerome. If you want fair, honest, respectful and gentle service I can’t think of any place better

Andrew C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for Invisalign treatment at the recommendation of my dentist and have been very satisfied at how well the treatment has gone.  Dr. Jerome and his staff are great and all my appointments have been straight forward.  I have been wearing Invisalign for only about 5 months as of this review and it really is night and day the results I’ve been having.  His office has all the latest technology and during my consultation he answered all my questions and showed me how my progress would go during the treatment.  If you are looking for a great orthodontist, I highly recommend Signature Orthodontics.

Nick K. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had to go in to get my permanent retainer fixed on short notice, Dr. Jerome took care of it the next day. I was in and out in 15 minutes and he even comp’d the procedure since it was so quick. He also provided options to get rid of this pain in the butt retainer and ensure my teeth stay healthy. Will definitely be going back and recommending him to all my friends and family.

Jouet P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


First I would like to start by saying Dr. Jerome is amazing! I have been to MANY other dentists and had braces twice (both times having a relapse with my open bite) all before I came to see Dr. Jerome. He set my mind at ease that his treatment plan would work when the others had not… And he was so right! I was referred to him by a few of my friends who also had wonderful things to say about the doctor. I am now a patient of Signature ortho and could not be happier with my decision to get Invisalign for the LAST time… I am on tray number 13 out of 20 and I can already tell the difference between my previous experiences and this quality treatment. I am very happy with my choice and you will be too! The office is new, comfortable, clean, and welcoming. Brooke at the front desk is really sweet and always reminds me of my appointments! Really great customer service and incredible ortho! I would and have recommended Signature ortho to my family and friends! Highly recommended!

Sara C. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so happy with how my teeth turned out. Once you walk into the office you have the most positive vibe from everyone. You’re definitely in the hands of people who know what their doing. My cousin goes here and so do most of my friends because of how friendly the atmosphere is and how nice your teeth turn out. Dr. Jerome wants what’s best for you so he will perfect your smile; You can take my word for it, my smile has been getting compliments all day. I walked into school and everyone loved how my smile looked after my braces. The time I had my braces felt like it went by a lot faster than it did because I always looked forward to my appointments. If I could give more than five stars I would because I genuinely loved my experience there.

David Tresslar (Source: Google)


Dr Jerome and his crew were great. I had braces as a teenager but lost the retainer years ago so my teeth moved again. He hooked me up with a good price and my teeth moved back into place pretty quickly. His office was very flexible with appointments. Definitely recommend for anyone interested in getting Invisalign.

Mora M. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I placed my trust in Dr. Jerome and his office – signing contracts for my son and myself, to follow an Invisalign treatment plan. Honestly, I could not be more impressed. Dr. Jerome is skilled and knowledgeable and his staff is professional and pleasant. The office building is gorgeous and their office suite, seems to possess the latest cutting edge technology. They take care of all the insurance busywork and use a very efficient scheduling system. My son and I both recognize not only a remarkable improvement in our smiles – but in our bites as well! I highly recommended Signature Orthodontics. ~ Mora Mangiameli

Minerva J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I Just want to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Jerome and his great staff, and give the 100 stars he deserves. He has been by far the most kind, caring, honest and professional dr I’ve ever met, and trust me it’s been a few. Dr. Jerome went beyond my expectations and gave me back the confidence of smiling, which for me is not just the way I look outside, it’s the way I feel. I am really happy with the results of my treatment and my beautiful teeth, my almost 1 hour driving for my appointments for more than a year and a half was worth every minute for the quality of his job. I must not forget to mention the state of the art technology of the office! I am extremely satisfied and I highly recommended Dr. Jerome’s services.

Christian M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Signature Orthodontics is the place to be if you’re looking for perfect teeth and to be taken care of like family. My wife and I set up a consultation appointment after being referred by one of our friends, and we didn’t look back after meeting Dr.Jerome. He stayed late after his office closed to see us and gave both my wife and I a great deal for our treatment. My wife finished her treatment in half a year, and I finished mines in 20 months (my teeth needed much more work than hers did). We both had great results and couldn’t be happier with our experience at Signature Orthodontics. Aside from the great results, they are always courteous and the staff always treats you as their top priority from the moment you step through their doors. Also love the office and all the state of the art technology, and how clean and orderly it is there. It was worth the 30 minute drive for every appointment and would continue to recommend the wonderful staff at Signature Orthodontics.

David Traina (Source: Google)


Highly recommend Dr Jerome. He set me up with Invisalign and the experience was as smooth as I could have hoped. What I like most is that he’s a perfectionist – he went the extra mile (insisted on it) to get my smile absolutely dialed in. The staff is also great – super responsive – and the office is NICE.

Jamie S. from Julian, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Experience Ever! Dr Jerome makes you feel like family as soon as you walk in. He takes the time to explain your options and offers great payment plans. His office is so nice, modern and comfortable. His staff is also great! Today felt like Christmas to me…I finally can afford the braces that my daughter needs. She is 18 now and I want to send her out into the world with a beautiful smile. Dr Jerome is making this happen for me and my daughter with an affordable payment plan. If you are looking for an orthodontist – stop looking and make an appointment with Dr Jerome. You will be so happy you did. I know I was.

Lilia G. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


EXCELLENT experience with Dr. Jerome, I wish I could give him more stars! I spent a few weeks looking for an orthodontist for my 2 children and when I met Dr. Jerome back in 2013, I immediately knew that he was the right one. He is very professional, his office is just amazing! (my kids love going there, they feel very special as soon as we get there), his rates are very competitive and the staff couldn’t be nicer. Dr. Jerome has the most welcoming and professional staff. Since the very beginning Dr. Jerome has been incredibly nice (he is happy and positive all the time). He always takes time to talk about the treatments’ progress and to answer any questions the kids or I may have. A couple of times we have needed to see him on weekends and he has been there for us! A few days ago I needed to have my permanent retainer fixed and he did it free of charge!! and I’m not even his patient. (He is amazing!) My son (13) just finished his treatment, and he looks absolutely amazing! His smile is incredibly beautiful and his teeth look perfect! We are very happy with the results. My daughter (12) is going to start her phase 2 treatment soon and she can’t wait. I’m very glad that I found Dr. Jerome, working with him has really been an awesome experience! Highly recommended. Thanks Dr. Jerome!

Let me start with saying that Dr. Jerome and his staff are the most wonderful people I have ever met. I am originally from alaska but decided to come down to california for a destination wedding. I made a horrible decision and ate red curry the week of my wedding. Needless to say my clear bands were dyed an aweful orange yellow and I did not want to take my wedding pictures with horrible looking teeth. I must have called at least 8 orthodontist to see if my bands could be changed but most did not call me back and two wanted to charge me an office visit of $120. My funds were low due to the wedding and I was hoping for something around $50 for this 5 minute procedure. Luckily, I made a last attempt at calling and ended up with Dr. Jerome at Signature orthodontics. After explaining my situation, he told me to come in and he would do it for FREE since I am getting married. I was surprised by his generosity but even more so when I walked into his office. His office is beautiful, clean and high tech, the type I would have thought would charge me an arm and a leg. Walking in, I was immediately welcomed by very friendly staff. Dr. Jerome changed my bands himself, a work that my orthodontist at home leaves to his other staff members. He was very gentle and kind. If I lived here in San Diego, I would quickly switch to his services. Dr. Jerome cares about his patients and sees them as people. He can relate with people well and understand circumstances. Although he has nothing to gain, he still offered to perform a service without charge which is more than I can say for the first 8 orthodontists I called. I highly recommend his office if you are looking to be treated like a valued patient instead of just a number in a crowd.

#myorthodontistisbetterthanyours Dr. Jerome and the entire staff are wonderful. From the very first appointment to my Invisalign follow ups I’m always greeted with respect Everyone is always Pleasant the office is clean, and up to date they have state-of-the-art equipment…. take the time to visit you will definitely be impressed!

Melissa C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


my 1 year journey to a new smile! So happy to complete this process, but even happier that it was with Dr. Jerome! Aside from all the praise of how awesome the office itself is, the staff is just as awesome! Brooke and Gracie are always able to work with your schedule and easily reachable through phone or email. John and Sherri were always great and able to answer any questions I had. Dr. Jerome is always available and personally checks your progress at each appointment. Highly recommended and encouraged by me and all of my fellow patients.

I am writing this review to share with those of you who are about to make an orthodontist decision my thoughts on how I chose Dr. Jerome. To start with, unfortunately, I have 3 children (that’s not the unfortunate part) and all three required braces (that’s the unfortunate part). To make matters worse, we moved several times over the past 10 years and I had to go through the process of selecting a new orthodontist 3 separate times now in 3 different parts of the country. As a result, I’ve learned a thing or two about what to look for when selecting an orthodontist for my child. First of all, Dr. Jerome’s office and orthodontic facilities & equipment are truly state-of-the-art but what really impressed me most was Dr. Jerome’s confidence in and passion for what he does… which was really refreshing and in contrast to some of the other orthodontists in the area I also interviewed. I really appreciated Dr. Jerome’s availability to me as a parent and to my son as a patient… he stayed after hours to be able to meet with me and my son on our initial visit because it was the only time my son and I could meet with him that day. Dr. Jerome then called me a couple of days later just to make himself available and he gave me his personal cell phone number and invited me to call him anytime with any questions or concerns I might have. One time I called his office and he was with a patient so I left a message with his assistant Brooke and within 15 minutes Dr. Jerome emailed me a detailed comprehensive answer to my question. He was (and is) always willing to spend as much time with me to answer any of my questions and to just visit with me and my son. And speaking of his assistant Brooke, she is equally as accessible and accommodating and when she says she will follow up with you (just like Dr. Jerome), she will follow up with you. Furthermore, as for cost, I did my due diligence visiting 5 different orthodontic offices in the area before making my decision and I can assure you, Dr. Jerome was the most cost effective orthodontic provider. Both my son and I are very happy with the care we’ve received to date and I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Jerome and his practice if you’re considering where to go for your child’s orthodontic care.

Monica F. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Getting Invisalign with Dr. Jerome was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I always wanted to fix my teeth but I was too nervous. A friend of mine suggested Signature Orthodontics and persuaded me to give them a chance. From the first consultation, Dr. Jerome laid out my options but didn’t didn’t make me feel pressured. He simply explained how he could help. I decided to go with Invisalign and there hasn’t been a day since that I regretted that decision. I got married 3 months into starting Invisalign and even noticed changes by my wedding date. Dr. Jerome and his staff are amazing and the results I got are amazing too. I finally have a smile I want to show off. It was completely worth it and I highly recommend this office!

Summer J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everything about my experience was seamless from start to finish. The process to be seen was so easy and quick, I love the text reminders. The office was immaculate and the staff were all very friendly. Katey is AMAZING! She explained things so well and made sure I understood the recommended treatment plan. The technology of their X-rays and 3D imaging helped me really see what needed to be done. Dr. Jerome was very professional and friendly and took the time to answer my questions thoroughly. They were very reasonable with costs and I was able to start my son’s braces journey the same day! I highly recommend them for all orthodontic needs. Very honest and efficient.

Raffi M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my son’s first day of his last year… his senior year… of high school… and I noticed how nice his smile was… and it just reminded me of the OUTSTANDING orthodontic care he had with Dr. Jerome… and his entire staff.  It’s been over 3 years since Dr. Jerome completed his orthodontic care of my son… and it’s just nice to be still SO HAPPY about my son’s smile and to have had such PLEASANT EXPERIENCE and OUTCOME.

Heidi W. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a very unique & challenging mouth from a boat accident and I have been so happy with all aspects of Dr. Jerome’s office. Seriously- no waiting ever, super clean facility, all the staff are very friendly and Dr. Jerome takes his time making sure everything is throughly explained and looked at. His pricing seems to be on point for the level of  attention, care and equipment. He has state-of-the-art technology; last time I was in for an appointment he mentioned just coming back from a seminar for Invisalign. Always good to hear doctors who stay on top of the latest methods. All in all- I have gone thru Ortho with a diff dr. prior to my accident and experienced many many dental offices following and Dr Jerome’s stands out at the best, no doubt!

Mounia J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ok, this is a long overdue review! My fifteen year old just finished her treatment (right before school started) and we are so happy with the results! But most importantly the staff is great! Brooke and Gracie are so awesome and on top of things. They always work around my daughter’s busy schedule, and those appointment reminders! soooo helpful! And John is so nice and good at what he does, he made the whole process very comfortable and smooth. Dr. Jerome is always at every appointment checking for progress and answering any questions we have, and he is so good with kids…and the technology is amazing, the office is spotless and welcoming. I am so glad we found Signature Orthodontics, thank you for making my daughter’s smile prettier…….And see you soon for kid number two.

Ashley R. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had my braces off for probably 10 years and have had the same retainer ever it was pretty gross. I came here for a new retainer because it was close to my house & in the new medical building. BEST ORTHODONTIST EVER. I wish I could’ve come here when I went through braces, the expander…all that. The office is new, clean, state of the art technology, and everyone is SO friendly. One thing I hated about the orthodontist was the horrible molds they took of your teeth. Obviously I had to get a mold for my new retainer, but this time, it was super quick & totally not horrible. If you’re looking for an orthodontist, COME HERE. There’s a reason why virtually everyone gives it 5 stars!
