James A. Weaver, DDS, C. Orth.

In 1986, Dr. James A. Weaver established the premier private orthodontic practice in Tucson. You may have noticed that Dr. Weaver’s initials are J.A.W. — hence the practice’s name, Dr. JAW Orthodontists.

Dr. Weaver has great pride for being an orthodontist in his hometown of Tucson, Arizona. He studied at Northern Arizona University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry with a minor in mathematics. He then attended Baylor University Dental School, graduating in 1984, and moved to New Jersey for two years of orthodontic training, earning his certificate in orthodontics at Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1986.

In addition to having created thousands of smiles through traditional braces and Invisalign® during his 30-year career as an orthodontist, Dr. Weaver also specializes in treating TMJ and dental-caused sleep apnea. His practice is limited to orthodontics, dentofacial orthopedics, orofacial pain and temporomandibular disorders.

Continuing education is integral to Dr. Weaver’s philosophy of providing unsurpassed patient care. Dr. Weaver strives to utilize the best combination of cutting-edge technology and tried-and-true techniques to provide better, more efficient treatment results for his patients. Dr. Weaver is an esteemed member of the orthodontic community and has been fortunate to lecture at many local and regional dental societies during his 30 years in practice. Dr. Weaver has expanded his practice considerably over the course of 30 years. In addition to having Dr. Laura Robison-Rabe and Dr. Kyle Rabe join the practice, he has also opened offices in Oro Valley and Sahuarita. The ambiance at each of Dr. JAW’s offices is a direct reflection of Dr. Weaver’s unique personality – professional, inviting, fun, upbeat and friendly.
