Jeremy Manuele, or “Dr. J” as he’s often referred to, is a Las Vegas native who graduated from Community College High School. In keeping with his lifelong goal of becoming an Orthodontist, he received his Bachelors degree and Doctor of Dental Medicine from UNLV graduating summa cum laude, and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society. After graduating from dental school, he was accepted to Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, where he completed a two year residency in the specialty of Orthodontics and received extensive training in all aspects regarding the mechanics of orthodontia. Dr. Manuele also volunteers part-time teaching at UNLV School of dental medicine.
Inspired by the service of his grandfather and step-father, Dr. J joined the Army National Guard when he was 17. Nine months after being married to the love of his life Nicole, he was deployed to Ramadi, Iraq for an 18 month deployment. He served our country with the 222nd field artillery unit as a “gunner” and currently is serving as a Captain in a local medical unit. Dr. J, his wife Nicole and their 4 beautiful children Bailey, Carter, Maycee, and Weston are excited to be back home in Las Vegas. On the weekends, there’s a good chance you could run into them hiking at Mt. Charleston, biking through Red Rock Canyon, camping at Valley of Fire or at one of the kids’ recitals or sporting events. Dr J is most knowledgeable in the latest orthodontic techniques and current research. More importantly, his high level of empathy, professionalism, effective communication and personal integrity impressed Dr. Hamilton so much that Dr. Manuele is the first orthodontist in 25 years to be offered an Associate position at Hamilton Orthodontics. When working together, Drs. Manuele and Hamilton create a synergy that both doctors feel is at a level above their own individual efforts and are excited about transforming your experience at Hamilton Orthodontics.
We are delighted for you to meet Dr. J and welcome him as part of our Hamilton Orthodontic family.
