Jesus I. Patiño Jr. DDS, MS
Dr. Patiño was born and raised in the Bay Area, from Oakland to San Lorenzo, California. He has always appreciated growing up in such a culturally diverse area. He contributes his ability to communicate and relate with all of his patients to his ingrained Bay Area roots.
At the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) he earned a B.S. in Health Science and was a member of the Banana Slug’s men’s basketball team. After his graduation from UCSC, he was accepted into the prestigious University of California, San Francisco School of Dentistry (UCSF) where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). While at UCSF, he received multiple scholarships and awards for his academic success and held many leadership positions, including a national position with the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) which focused on the recruitment of minorities into dentistry. Dr. Patiño chose to enrich his dental education by pursing his passion of orthodontics and applying to residency. He matched at his top choice and stayed at UCSF to complete his additional 3 yrs of specialty training in orthodontics. While in residency, he was the chief resident of his class and received the Colgate-Palmolive Company Dental Residency Scholarship from the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA). Upon completion of his residency training, he also completed his Masters degree in Oral and Craniofacial sciences.
Since completing his education, Dr. Patiño achieved the highest level of certification available as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He was also asked to return to UCSF as an Assistant Clinical Professor training the residents in clinical orthodontics and patient care. He had his research from his thesis published in the Taiwan Journal of Orthodontics, entitled “A Comparison of Two TAD Techniques (Miniscrews Versus Miniplates) for Treating Class III Malocclusion and The Associated Skeletal and Dental Effects”.
Dr. Patiño enjoys spending his free time with his family and friends. He enjoys playing sports, hiking, weight lifting, running, and cooking. Dr. Patiño is excited to create esthetic smiles, functional occlusions, and an enjoyable orthodontic experience for his patients at Precise Orthodontics.

A note from Dr. Watanabe
I will like to thank all of my patients for allowing me to have a wonderful career as your orthodontist. There was not one day that I woke up and dreaded going into the office. On the contrary, I looked forward to meet and greet each and every one of you and check on your clinical progress towards a beautiful smile. I feel blessed and fortunate to have had the longevity in the career that I truly love. Although I still maintain my passion for Orthodontics, I have reached the point in my career where it is time to pass the torch and to turn to the next chapter in my life. That being said, I would like to introduce Dr. Jesus I Patiño Jr. who I have chosen to be my successor at my practice in San Ramon. I am grateful to have found an outstanding young man and clinically gifted Orthodontist in Dr. Patiño.
Dr. Patiño comes with the highest recommendations from two of my very dear friends from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), one being the former Chairman of the Division of Orthodontics. Dr. Patiño comes with the highest qualifications and is skilled in all phases of orthodontics. Most importantly, he is committed to maintaining the same high quality, outstanding service, and attention to detail that you have come to expect from my care. In addition, he is an excellent communicator, kind, caring, and very personable.

"Dr. Watanabe is a great doctor who listens to the patient."
"Dr. Watanabe and the whole ‘brace team’ have served my family brilliantly!"
"I highly recommend Dr. Watanabe."
