Snells Beach Dental

Meet Our Team

Snells Jaco Minnaar
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.

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. 

Snells Beach Sharon

Sharon graduated from the University of Otago in 2003 and is a registered dental hygienist. In her role, she enjoys when patients become motivated to achieve ideal oral health and also meeting people and working with supportive team members.

When not in the practice, you can find Sharon, gardening, tramping and playing tennis.
