Our philosophy behind our treatment protocols

Our entire philosophy is established to achieve the best oral health, functionality, and dental aesthetics.

We understand that cranial, facial, dental, and oral problems must be evaluated, understood, and ultimately managed to achieve facial and individual beauty.

Therefore, the challenge of combining the triad of phonetics, function and aesthetics has always been the primary therapeutic goal of leading dentists in Cape Town.

Smile makeovers require a healthy start.

Digital Smile Design can only be used when the teeth and gums are healthy and in the correct position.

Cosmetic outcome is dependent on many factors, and we consider everything.

How did OptiSmile Cosmetic Dentistry start in Cape Town?

I returned to the City of Cape Town, South Africa, after 32 years abroad in London, San Diego and Perth to build this state-of-the-art dentistry facility spread out over 500 square meters.

My inspiration for returning to South Africa was threefold.

  • My high school sweetheart Robyn Zinman lived here in Sea Point, and after 37 years apart, we were reunited on Facebook. So, I returned to the beautiful Western Cape and the African continent to be with her again.
  • My dad and mentor, Dr Louis Yudelman, was a well-renowned dentist in Johannesburg and practised dentistry to the highest standard for 57 years. He inspired me to make OptiSmile the centre for cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers in Sea point.
  • Cape Town, the Indian and Atlantic oceans, Chapman’s Peak cycling route, the Cape Winelands, Sea Point Promenade, Nelson Mandela’s children, and Africa’s rainbow nation were calling me back to the land of my birth.

What about all your Google reviews?

With our passion for dentistry and people, we have connected a unique team of highly qualified specialists and dentists under one roof. We are working together to achieve the best treatment for every patient. This shows in our reviews on Google if you search for “best dentist Cape Town.”

Our practise is unique, and our reviews on Google have more reviews than any other practice. It’s not about the number of reviews. Take time to read the last five or ten Google reviews and see what people have said about achieving their best-optimised smile. I trust this will help you make up your mind. So, call email or WhatsApp today for an appointment.
