Dentist

Dr Jaco Minnaar

Jaco graduated in 2001 from Stellenbosch University in South Africa with a B.Ch.D.  He relocated to Orewa with his family after nearly 20 years of private practice in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Jaco enjoys providing all forms of dentistry and always aims to put a smile back on his patient's face - literally and figuratively.

Jaco also used to work at Lumino Snells Beach before its closure.

Outside of the practice, he loves spending quality time with his wife and two children. Outdoor activities such as running, cycling, swimming and hiking are always on his "to-do" list.

Kellie Houlahan is a perfectionist and decided she wanted to be a dentist when she was 11 years old. Her best days in dental are when she knows almost everyone in her book.

Anything design-related really lights Kellie up. She says she's that crazy dentist that says look how good your filling looks with all the amazing anatomy and detail, yet it’s in the top back tooth where no one, not even yourself is going to see it.

Outside of work, Kellie enjoys spending time with her two young, adventurous boys, chilling on their rural property or off camping. She also tries to stay healthy so escapes to the gym when she's not busy cluttering up the house with another never-ending art project.
