Dr. Jonathan Bouwer completed his dental surgery degree 12 years ago at the University of Western Cape in his native South Africa (2007). Driven by his desire to assist those in need, Jonathan started his career volunteering his services in remote rural communities.
He continued to work for nearly a decade in Cape Town & Krugersdorp as a general practitioner providing a wide range of care from complex restorative rehabilitation to laser dentistry and oral surgery & implants.
Although enjoying his work in private practice, Jonathan realized soon that he had a calling in the discipline of Periodontics.
Jonathan joined the Graduate Periodontics Program at the University of Manitoba (2016) under the mentorship of the world-renowned Dr. Anastasia Cholakis. He not only excelled in his studies, but he designed and completed his Masters research in the field of Guided Bone Regeneration, making him one of the few experts on this topic in Western Canada.
Dr. Bouwer has successfully completed the National Dental Specialty Boards (Royal College of Dental Surgeons), and is certified as a specialist in Periodontics.
Jonathan is a very active individual who enjoys spending time in the outdoors hunting & fishing as well as scuba diving and cycling. He prides himself in his cooking abilities and frequently showcases his cuisine to friends and family.
