Dr. Jason Wanuck
Dr. Wanuck, or Dr. Jason as the children know him, is no stranger to Northern Palm Beach county. Dr. Jason moved to the area in 1974 and attended the Benjamin School and Palm Beach Gardens high school. After a fantastic four years at Florida State University (go Noles!), Dr. Wanuck completed a BS degree in biological sciences. Upon graduation, he continued his schooling at the University of Florida where he completed his DMD degree in dentistry.
After a one year advanced education in general dentistry residency (AEGD) in Jacksonville, Florida, Dr. Wanuck returned to Jupiter and practiced as a general dentist for three years. It was at this time that he discovered his passion for providing care to children and decided to return to school to complete an additional two year pediatric dental residency at Nova Southeastern University and Miami Children’s Hospital.
The course was an intensive clinical program that concentrated on sedation and hospital dentistry, behavior management and a medical approach to preventing and managing dental disease. Dr. Wanuck is certified in PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), a steadfast member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (www.aapd.org) and has diplomate status with the Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Even with a busy private office, Dr. Wanuck takes pride in the opportunity to develop a relationship with each child.
He aims to know them individually and enjoys the chance to interact with them. Instilling confidence and trust with your child is his primary goal.
Dr. Wanuck and his wife Lara live in Jupiter and are proud parents to their three young sons. Free time is all about family. Occasionally, Dr. Jason finds spare time to enjoy playing golf with friends, going to the beach, reading, travelling and rooting for the Seminoles, Marlins and Jaguars!
