Simply Orthodontics: Sunbury
Dr Skilton has been involved in orthodontics since 2003. He is an expert in the field and shares the vision of creating beautiful, healthy smiles for his patients.
Dr Skilton undertook his dental degree at the University of Otago (New Zealand), graduating with numerous awards for clinical and academic excellence. From there, he ventured to Far North Queensland to work as a dentist in the government service in Cairns and the remote areas of the Sunshine State. Much of his work there involved flying into remote communities with the Royal Flying Doctor Service to provide dental care.
After his adventures in the north, Dr Skilton joined the Graduate Program at the University of Melbourne to specialise in the field of orthodontics. He graduated from this program with a published thesis and numerous awards and recognition for his research. Jon also gained the prestigious prize for Clinical Excellence from the Australasian Society of Orthodontists for presenting the best clinical cases as a student.
Dr Skilton is published in the dental literature, has presented at numerous events and teaches at both Melbourne and La Trobe Universities.
He enjoys gardening, cooking and travelling.
Dr Jason Yap studied Dentistry at The University of Melbourne where he received numerous awards and scholarships during his dental training.
His early years as a dentist were spent serving the rural communities of Gippsland, and later on as a clinical demonstrator and supervisor for dental students at The Melbourne Dental School.
Jason completed his specialty training in Orthodontics at the University of Queensland, after which, he returned to Melbourne and joined Simply Orthodontics.
Jason maintains his passion for teaching, serving as a visiting demonstrator at Melbourne University and Latrobe University, and is actively involved in the Australian Dental Association mentoring program for new graduate dentists in the industry.
When he is not creating confident and beautiful smiles, Jason maintains his work-life balance by jogging, playing tennis and indulging in golf as well as dining out with friends and family.
He is a devoted Essendon supporter, and looks forward to his beloved Bombers winning their next premiership flag!
