Meet Dr Jacob Smith

Dr Smith graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours before starting his career as a Lieutenant in the Navy. Over the first two years in the Australian Defence Force, he was mentored in all aspects of clinical dentistry by numerous specialists in the areas of endodontics, 

prosthodontics and periodontics. After those years of initial training Dr Smith progressed onto the fleet team where he spent a brief period as the Acting Fleet Dental Surgeon.
