Your Dentist

I graduated from the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town South Africa in 1997. I set up this surgery in 2005 and have made many friends since then.

​If you are nervous then I am the dentist you need because, I care, I’m gentle and I’m kind. I value the privilege to be a dentist and the trust you place in me.

I promise to do my best at all times, to be friendly at all times and to always greet you with a smile.
