Jan Gabus, D.D.S.

Dr Jan GabusDr. Jan Gabus

To know Dr. Gabus is to appreciate his talent and his Mid-Western background that shines through in everything he does—from his curiosity to his caring personality.

Dr. Gabus grew up in rural Nebraska, attended the University of Nebraska Dental School and, after graduation, joined the Navy. He wanted to develop his dental skills and see the world while he did it.

For five years, he cared for his Navy patients in 18 exotic locations and while in the service, he met and married his wife Freddy.

After the Navy, a big question loomed—where to settle down. Freddy grew up in New York City and assumed they would go there. He felt rural Nebraska would be a good choice. But after many serious discussions, they compromised on California (not a bad compromise).

Being a product of the '60's (very idealistic, very altruistic times), Dr. Gabus wanted to do good things for people; so he opened a practice in East San Jose. His goal: to treat low-income and welfare patients the same as paying patients. With that philosophy, patients came streaming through the door. Serving this population was very gratifying, but with low fees it was a struggle financially.

After a few years, Freddy and Dr. Gabus had another series of serious discussions, and they decided they had to move on. Fortunately, Dr. Gabus knew a dentist in Menlo Park who wanted to retire, and he was able to take over the practice. From day one, he felt he had died and gone to heaven. And 30 years later, he still feels the same.

Never one to rest, he studies current dental literature, participates in two very active dental study groups, and attends dental courses—all to further his professional knowledge.My bike In 2009, he founded the Constant Growth chapter of BNI, a worldwide networking group for small businesses. In his free time he bicycles and hikes and enjoys his family.

To stay healthy and to do his part to help the environment, he commutes by bicycle, another dream come true. When you come to the office, the bike you’ll see under the office stairs is usually his.
