    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. 

    Moving from the Navy Dr Smith worked in a small number of private practices honing his skills in implant, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Dr Smith has also shown a desire to continually undergo education to provide the most up to date dentistry for his patients studying courses in a variety of fields. Recently Dr Smith has graduated with Distinction from Charles Sturt University with a Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology and is in the process of completing a Master’s Degree in Aesthetic Dentistry with the prestigious Kings College in London.

    Outside of work Dr Smith enjoys spending time with his wife and children.
