Dr. Bob Kostich
Grand Cayman, Dentist
I was born in Belgium (a long, long time ago) and grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. While touring Europe after high school, I decided to stay and study in Belgrade. I graduated as a DDS in 1983 at the University of Belgrade faculty of Stomatology and gained my membership in the faculty of general dentists, Royal College of Surgeons (UK).
I spent one year as a dentist in the Air Force before returning to South Africa, where I worked for government dental services before opening a private practice in 1988 in Johannesburg. In 2006, I arrived in the Cayman Islands with my beautiful wife, Svetlana (Lana), and my two daughters, Pavla and Katarina, who are now both College students.
I was drawn to work at Smile Dental Clinic, because their philosophy on caring for patients matched what I was doing in South Africa. Smile Dental also had up-to-date technologies, sterilization and materials and the staff are knowledgeable, certified and compassionate.
I love my profession and have committed myself to a lifetime of learning as you can see with all my memberships and associations that I am a part of. I have also spread my knowledge by lecturing at courses and congresses in South Africa on High Tech in Dentistry and Smile Simulations. I also gave a talk on Oral cancer to the Cayman Island Cancer Society, I am skilled in all areas of dentistry, but my main interests are in Implantology and Esthetics.
When I’m not at Smile Dental Clinic, you’ll find me reading, watching movies, playing poker (for fun not money), golfing and watching sports (which I am too old to play now!).
My experience here has been exceptional and serving the people of the Cayman Islands has been a pleasure. I joined Rotary Sunrise Cayman Islands in 2007 and have been involved in a lot of community activities, fundraisers and International programs.
