A dynamic entrepreneur, Dr. Jack Yang is a compassionate, people-oriented, and caring general dentist skilled in all areas of family and cosmetic dentistry. He has a special interest in dental implants, especially the digital all-on 4/6 procedures and digital cosmetic smile makeover. He also happens to be highly competent in oral surgery; some of his specialties include wisdom teeth removal, implant, and full arch dental implants. Additionally, he is highly experienced in both children’s and adult orthodontics with the philosophy of ‘Extract for the Face, Not for the Space.’
Born and raised in a beautiful place called Taiwan (also known as “the Formosa”), Dr. Jack left for New Zealand to study when he was just 11 years old. He eventually completed Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Queensland. Furthermore, his commitment to learning and engaging in structured education programs has steered him to completing a 3-year Master of Clinical Orthodontics through the City of London University in 2018 as well as a Diploma in Implant Dentistry with EduQual in 2021. He proudly holds a Post Graduate Diploma in both Dental Implantology (EduQual) and Clinical Orthodontic (OrthCoL), FiADFE, as well as ICOI Fellowship (International Congress Of Oral Implantologists). Dr. Jack always keeps up-to-date with any new developments in dental medicine and regularly attends educational seminars nationally and internationally.
Dr. Jack enjoys all components of general dentistry with an emphasis on ensuring his patients are as comfortable as possible at all times. He also takes pride in ensuring his patients feel at ease and answers any questions they may have. His holistic approach to integrated patient treatment places special emphasis on minimal intervention dentistry and preventative oral health regimes. Furthermore, he believes a planned and steady approach to all dental treatment is the most beneficial to all his patients.
StarCentral Magazine recently caught up with Dr. Jack to discuss his journey in the industry, and here’s what went down:
What are you currently doing to maintain/grow your business?
Constant marketing; utilising social media and our website for marketing, getting involved in the community, and collaborating with other industries and influencers.
What social media platforms do you usually use to increase your brand’s awareness?
Mostly Facebook and Instagram.
As a dentist, what are your thoughts on a great smile?
A great smile is an investment in yourself. Fashion comes and goes, but beautiful teeth are always on-trend. Your self-confidence flourishes when you no longer have to hide behind imperfect teeth.
Teeth are my passion. I specialise in general dentistry and cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry as well. I want my clients to look and feel their best when their treatment is complete… and tell all their friends about it!
I’m always striving to learn more about modern dentistry to achieve the best results for each patient.
At the end of the day, it’s their confidence that is at stake, and that’s what matters most in shaping their new smile. No two cases have been the same in all my years of practicing dentistry. From the most straightforward procedures to the most complex, each person is as unique as the result they’re looking for.
But the biggest “wow” moment for me is when I hold up that mirror to the patient so they can check out their new smile. That’s the icing on the cake.
What is your main tactic for making more people aware of your brand and engaging your customers?
Social media and participating in the local community group, “Rado.”
We do specialised work in Dental implants, full-arch implants, soft tissue grafts, Pinhole Surgery, Cosmetic makeover, and Infinity veneers – we help people get their dream smile by eliminating all obstacles that are stopping them from getting one, whether it be financial obstacles, physical and health obstacles or emotional obstacles.
What form of marketing has worked well for your business throughout the years?
Social media and Google ads.
What is the toughest decision you had to make in the last few months?
Cut my days off to concentrate on business expansion.
What money mistakes have you made along the way that others can learn from (or something you’d do differently)?
Invest in what you are good at. I have made a lot of investments over the year, and trusted agents and friends who persuaded me to invest in all sorts of things such as crypto, properties, shares, stocks, managed funds, etc. But nothing beats what you are best at, which is the love for dentistry for me.
What new business would you love to start?
My dental academy centre. I’m in the process of finding a location now; it will incorporate a teaching facility, live surgery setup, general anaesthetic facility, recovery room, and ten-chairs practice. It’s like a dental day surgery. I am also just about to launch my own brand of Oral Care Product, Denfinity! Which includes electric toothbrush, water flosser, and many more to come, so stay tuned!
If you could go back in a time machine to the time when you were just getting started, what would you do differently?
I would invest more in dentistry rather than off-track to some other avenues. I have wasted so many resources on things that I am not comfortable with or good at.
What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Success is like being pregnant – everyone says congratulations, but nobody knows how many times you got screwed!
Other advice I’ve been given before was failing to plan is planning to fail, stop waiting for things to happen, go out and make them happen instead, and never dream of succeeding; work for it.
What advice would you give to a newbie Entrepreneur setting up their first business?
Every day is a hustle and full of obstacles.
Do I get tired?
Yes, of course, I do… but, do I give up? No way!
