Dr Jacob Chan
Jacob is a graduate of the University of Melbourne, and has since gained great experience working in public and private practices across metropolitan & rural Victoria. 6 years of his career was spent working in Castlemaine, and as a result, he has also come to know many wonderful patients from Gisborne, Daylesford, Trentham, Kyneton and Woodend.
Jacob practises and enjoys all areas of general dentistry, with a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, where his creative and artistic side can shine! Jacob is a strong believer in prevention and educating his patients. He doesn’t merely look at his patient’s mouths and teeth, but embodies a more holistic and personalised approach to oral health care. Jacob takes special care to tailor his advice to each patient and as such, enjoys building strong long-term relationships with his patients. He also has a very gentle chair side manner which nervous patients really appreciate and compliment him on. He treats all his patients with a genuinely caring and empathetic attitude.
Jacob is a member of the Australian Dental Association and is constantly studying and striving to expand his knowledge. He is an accredited provider of Invisalign and has completed further studies in orthodontics with the Progressive Orthodontic Seminars (USA). He has also completed IAADent’s comprehensive Implant training, and is undertaking IAADent’s comprehensive Orthodontic course. He has previously been a demonstrator for dental students at Latrobe University (Bendigo campus) and hopes to get back into teaching once time allows!
Outside of dentistry, Jacob appreciates vintage cars and enjoys cooking. Being a father has also taught him a lot of new skills and expanded his already worldly knowledge to include a large repertoire of nursery rhymes and Wiggles songs, as well as the art of tying his daughter’s hair. This is a skill which impresses his wife very much! Aside from English, Jacob is fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese & Malay.
