Have had a great experience at the practice today! Emma was amazing and did a fantastic job with a professional teeth cleanse and explained in details all about teeth whitening. Dr. Clifford takes a... lot of time to meet his patients and has the highest standard to quality, consultation and the equipment I have ever witnessed in a dental practice. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Highly recommended!read more

This review is a little late as I've been going to Optismile for around 4 years now. You could say I've tested almost much every aspect of dentistry there and I really can't emphasise how... professional and meticulous Clifford and the Optismile team are. I've always been given the the very best options and advice. Clifford is a perfectionist, always trying to ensure minimal intrusion but maximum results. The clinic is equipped with the very latest equipment and tools and offers just about every dental service I can think of. I've been taking my daughters to Optismile for a few years too and even my youngest feels comfortable and at home with the entire team. Both kids have connected with Clifford in a way that makes them feel comfortable having her teeth treated, something they were nervous about previously. Finally, it's clear for anyone to see that Clifford has a real passion for the industry and for people. It shows in every aspect of this clinic from the minute you walk in.read more

Just got my teeth cleaned! The dental hygienist was gentle, unrushed and caring. The dental-hygiene operatory was spacious and facing the ocean, the practice is spotless, modern and brimming with... the most upto date dental technology. The admin staff is super friendly and accommodating. You would expect this in LA and New York, not Cape Town. Just wow!read more

I just finished my second and final appointment with Dr. Clifford Yudelman at Optismile. I moved from the U.K. to Cape Town 5 years ago and continued to visit my dentist in the U.K. as I was... apprehensive about finding a new dentist here. Well that was a BIG mistake. Clifford is not only the best Dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being seen by but he is also an artist, the Michelangelo of dentistry, with an eye for the smallest detail. And he’s a wonderful guy to boot! Beautiful work. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you to Clifford and the team at Optismile (special mention to Emma who gave me the best teeth whitening treatment I’ve ever had!). Can’t stop smiling 😬.read more

It’s been a while since my first visit (30/09/2019) and follow up appointment (08/10/2019), and while I’ve always gone for “economical” decided, after recommendations and seeing reviews that... I’d give OptiSmile a go. All I can say is I’m really pleased I did. From walking into the premises which are the most modern and up to date I’ve ever been in, helpful, friendly staff and meeting Clifford, I was blown away. Every detail of what would follow was explained and during my 2nd appointment I actually watched as an “inlay” for my tooth was made. It’s now been over a week and a half and all I can say is I’m thrilled I made the choice I did. You certainly get what you pay for! Thanks to you all.read more

I tried the experience without any real miracle expectation I must admit. But to my greatest surprise, I looked in the mirror one day after only a few months and saw a totally different me. I could... smile again with full confidence...It's a life changer! I would recommend it and do it over again if I had to. Thanks again! Simon M. Kinshasa, DRC.read more
