Want a million-dollar smile? Then meet Dr. Jack Yang, a high-profile dentist skilled in Oral Surgery and Cosmetic dentistry.

The Sydney-based dental practitioner works his magic from the bright and airy Infinity Dental Care and Beyond Infinity Dental Clinics in the heart of The Hills District. He has a special interest in Full Arch Implant Surgery and Cosmetic Dental Veneers.

For Dr. Jack, it’s all about minimal intervention as he helps create perfectly natural smiles using a comprehensive approach to patient oral treatment, with a particular emphasis on preventative oral health regimes. Jack believes a planned and steady approach to all dental treatment benefits all his patients.

He attained his Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Queensland, and impressively, he proudly holds two postgraduate diplomas in Dental Implant (Edu) and Clinical Orthodontics (City of London University). He keeps up to date with new developments in dental medicine and attends educational seminars nationally and internationally. He’s also an ICOI Fellow (International Congress of Oral Implantologists).

We sat down and talked teeth with Dr. Jack Yang, and here’s what he had to say:

Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do?

My name is Dr. Jack, and I’m a cosmetic dentist who creates smiles.

I’m not just passionate about my calling; I’m obsessed. I want to give people the dream smiles they’ve always wished for. I want them to unlock their confidence by highlighting their great dental features.

People have great smiles; some just don’t know it because they’re fixated on a tiny flaw. Well, I take pride in focusing on the details, no matter how long it takes. It’s time I put in away from the clinic that counts. The late nights while the kids are sleeping, and I’m at work trying my best to give a client their smile back – to transform them.


What does a smile mean to you?

A smile is a powerful thing.

You can change someone’s day when you smile and be their light at the end of what seems to be a never-ending tunnel.

Smiles relieve stress. They help with success because they open doors you didn’t know existed and make people comfortable around you.

Smiles are assets.

So, stand strong. Flex those muscles at the side of your mouth and show your teeth.

Nothing will stop you when you do.

How does transforming someone’s smile change life?

I’m obsessed with detail. As a cosmetic dentist, I have to be. To me, my patients’ teeth are like an artist’s canvas. A canvas that could be a great masterpiece. I believe that with precision, I could create something meaningful for my patient. I could create ART.

There is power in beauty, and a beautiful smile is a magnet. It’s a force of attraction, of chemistry, of opportunity. You could go places with a good smile in your pocket. Those pearly whites are instant self-esteem boosters.

And it’s not just about having good teeth; it’s all the tiny details combined that make your smile light up a room and spread happiness all around.


What’s the best part of your job?

That would be the fact that we are transforming people’s smiles and giving them a positive change in life. We’re not just fixing teeth; we’re fixing lives! That’s why we wake up every morning, day in and day out.

What’s the hardest part?

Not being able to help more people, there are so many people with the same problems we face daily. I’m always saddened when patients come in for their first appointment. There’s always an initial embarrassment to smile, no confidence in socializing with others, and an inability to function or eat properly.

It shouldn’t be. And it hurts that there are so many people out there who are living through this.

What significant life events have made you the human being you are today?

The first would be leaving home when I was 10, moving to a foreign country all by myself, and staying at someone’s house. I had no clue who they were and where they were from, and on top of that, I couldn’t even speak a word of English.

It was terrifying, but it made me.

Is the dental industry evolving in this day and age?

Of course! You do remember, back in the day, we used to take this gooey putty-like mould material to make a copy of your teeth in models. Nowadays, we have a digital scanner, like a barcode scanner, which we place inside your mouth and take a digital picture of it. Then a 3D printer prints out an exact copy of your mouth or teeth.

This has eliminated the discomfort, inconvenience, and anxiety for many patients. On top of it, it’s efficient, clean, and hassle-free.

Dentistry is so advanced now that we are using technology to help us diagnose, treat, and improve our dental treatment accuracy. This can be seen in dental implants, orthodontics, crowns, and bridge work. Everything is seamless, and it’s all about sharing and using digital data.

How is your company adapting to the Coronavirus in its daily operating model?

What Corona? We are back to normal now. However, we are still implementing some of the original safety measures we used back in Covid days. Strict sterilization protocol, alcohol and hand sanitizer use too. Also, unwell patients are advised to stay home until they get better.

What has it been like for your company’s employees?

Everyone is adapting to it very well; everyone’s sick of staying home and not working, so we are glad we can work.

However, back in Covid days, we had restricted working hours and many procedures we could not do, and we didn’t enjoy it. We love to smile and socialize with our patients; it’s our practice. But back then, none of that was allowed. Masks were always on, and not just one mask. We went double-layered – an n95 first, with a regular mask over the top. Now, our staff are so much happier and so are all the patients.

How do you balance the need to respond to a crisis like COVID-19 rapidly while at the same time keeping a long-term, resilient course?

We had to follow the government’s guidelines. It was tough, but we made it through, we did it for the good of the community or country, and now we are over that hill.


During Covid, many small businesses were badly impacted. How did you cope with business interruptions during the last three years?

One word, team!

I have a great team of doctors, nurses and a behind-the-scenes supporting cast. What you guys see on social media is just the tip of the iceberg. Without my team, these life-changing moments we have created would not have been possible. This starts from my marketing team endlessly promoting us, showing the public how good we are and what can be achieved with us and only US.

Let’s not forget the nurses. My nurses are led by my mothership of the practice, Mel, who works relentlessly, training, and managing. She’s the one who ensures my teams are properly educated and know how to care for our beloved patients.

The doctors, what would we do without them? We have Dr. Troy on smile alignments, aka “The King of Invisalign.” No matter how twisted your teeth are, he will find a way to align them. There’s Dr. Jeni, the cosmetic dental expert, who prepares the most beautiful veneers and is so particular about what she wants, and pays attention to detail. Dr. Jeff, an all-rounder, loves a bit of everything and his standards are always above and beyond. There’s also our master implant surgeon, Dr. David, who is skilled in all aspects of soft tissue surgery and full arch implants. He is a great lecturer on dental implants. Then there’s Andy, our prosthesis. Andy specializes in denture perfection and anti-aging dentures. And saving the best for the last, we have our beloved oral health therapist Kate. Her gentle hands and thorough work have won all our patients over.

So, without these people, the last three years and what you called the “hard times” would’ve been much harder. We could not have coped! All these people are my backbone and provide support both mentally and physically. I love my team and am forever grateful I have a talented group of people I can rely on!

What do you think you came into this life to learn, and what do you think you came here to teach?

I always tell my associates and staff that money, cars, or houses aren’t so important to me. The legacy I leave behind is what is important. So, when I’m gone, I want to feel that I was useful to someone or this world. There’s this saying, “heroes come and go, but legends are forever.” I want forever.

That’s why I love teaching and sharing my knowledge with younger dentists or nurses. Seeing them perform or do better than me is more heartwarming than myself striving alone.
