Dr Jacob GrieveDr Jacob Grieve

Lead Dentist


After graduating with distinction from Otago University in 2002, Jacob gained valuable surgical experience as a Dental House Surgeon. This was consolidated further when he worked in a surgical team in Manchester, England.

As well as continuing working as a general dentist, Jacob teaches final year dental students for Otago University. Jacob is passionate about all areas of general dentistry but fosters a special interest in cosmetics, treatment of anxious people and wisdom teeth removal.

Jacob was admitted as a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS) and received the New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA) Outstanding Young Dentist Award in 2009.  He is the current President of the NZDA Otago branch, and a member of the NZDA, RACDS, the New Zealand Society of Sedation in Dentistry and the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.  He serves on a nation-wide Restorative Advisory Panel for Henry Schein, and mentors a group of new graduate dentists in the Graduate Professional Development Programme hosted by the NZDA.

When not in the office, Jacob enjoys cycling  on and off road. He also enjoys attending Equippers church and spending time with his wife Justine, their three children and one cat.

In September 2017,  Jacob and his family went on a dental and medical outreach mission to Tonga.  Read more about his experience, plans and goals for the Island nation here.
