Our Wonderful Team

Dr John Jacob

Dr John qualified at the University of Queensland Dental School in the mid 1970s. He completed ten year service with the RAAF, learning from many specialists and taking time out to research many projects and treatment plans.

John met his lovely wife Janette during that time, and they travelled the world together, before starting their family of three children.  John and Janette decided to raise their family in a country town, and settled in Atherton in 1989, when the Robert Street Dental Practice was purchased.

Dr John has undertaken further study in the areas of dental implants and dental surgery, offering areas of complex treatment, placement and restoration of dental implants and removal of wisdom teeth under general anaesthetic.
