Dr John Rebenque

D.D.S.

John decided to become a dentist at a fairly young age. It was heavily influenced by his Auntie whom he was fortunate enough to watch and observe.


John loves the artistic aspect of dentistry that no one really considers. The dental profession put together the things he values most; artistry, teaching, and the generic helping others in need.


These realisations helped him pave a pathway to where he is today.


From training to be a dental technician in years 11 & 12, to undergraduate and post graduate study to becoming a fully fledged dentist.
