Our team at A2Z Dental Clinic work together to provide a professional, friendly service within a modern and inviting environment. Starting out simply with a team of five, our practice has organically grown to now be home to a staff of nearly 20 including three dentists and an onsite dental laboratory.
(BChD Pretoria, ADC Sydney)
Jannie is the practice owner who established A2Z Dental Clinic in 2012. Working by the philosophy of doing things right the first time, Jannie strives for perfection for his patients and the practice.
Earning his dental qualifications in South Africa in 2000, Jannie moved to the UK in 2001 where he completed the Bould Course of Orthodontics at the University of Bristol while working part time in an Orthodontic practice in Torquay, UK for five years.
Although Jannie loves orthodontic work, he is also passionate about general dentistry and so works in both disciplines at the practice. On request, Jannie can provide patients with the option of having treatment under general anaesthesia at one of the local hospitals.
Away from work, you’ll find Jannie spending time with his family whether it be through their involvement in local sporting clubs, camping, fishing or enjoying the outdoors.
Dr Caitlyn Foote
(BSc, DMD. Perth)
Having grown up in the Perth hills, Caitlyn graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2017 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree.
Caitlyn moved to Geraldton in early 2018 to join A2Z Dental Clinic. Working within the team environment of our private practice, Caitlyn relishes the opportunity to continuously acquire and hone her dentistry skills.
Caitlyn enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and prides herself on providing quality dental care in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. She appreciates the opportunity to work with a diverse range of patients, but finds having the ability to put dentally anxious patients at ease, and to help them improve their oral health and confidence particularly rewarding.
Outside of work Caitlyn loves to cook and bake for her colleagues at A2Z Dental Clinic, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
