I am currently on vacation in Cape Town, suffering with acute dental pain. The front of house staff at OptiSmile arranged an appointment for me at the last minute to suit my needs. The dentist with... whom I had my first consultation was thorough and excellent in her approach. What was most impressive however was her willingness to ask her colleague for a second opinion given the complex nature of the problem. For me, this is a sign of a true professional who collaborates with a colleague to come to the best outcome for the patient. Dr. Yudelman, the owner and colleague in whom the first dentist sought counsel, was equally thorough in his approach. Moreover, given that I am continuing on my travels along the Garden Route, he provided details for me to stay in touch with him in relation to my progress and if needs be, to arrange follow up treatment through a recommendation of his along the Garden Route. The service I experienced at this practice was nothing short of exemplary. If you are a resident of Cape Town or simply a tourist with a spot of bad luck in need of dental help, I could not recommend OptiSmile at SeaPoint more highly.read more

When I first walked into OptiSmile I had no confidence and no hope that my teeth would ever look the way I wanted them to look but Emma King brought all the confidence back. She is professional,... friendly and patient. We've whitened my teeth with Philips Zoom and they are whiter than ever! I'm forever so thankful.read more

Living in Europe I struggled to find a good dentist. Now each time I am back in Cape Town I make it a priority to always fit in a visit to see Clifford at OptiSmile. I have a couple of problem teeth... but after the first visit (3 years ago) the problems are now under control which brings me comfort in a way I have not had before. This is thanks to the high expertise and the state of the art technology OptiSmile uses. Highly recommendedread more

I simply cannot fully express the amazing experience I had with OptiSmile. The background is I have avoided the dentist for 10 years due to fear after a bad experience. To add to my anxiety I wanted... some cosmetic work. From my initial appointment with Clifford Yuddelman, the owner, through the procedure and post procedure follow ups I was made to feel comfortable and valued as a customer. I am now the proud owner a new smile which has made a marked, positive impact on my life. I fully endorse OptiSmile.read more

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

After looking at the before and after, I was like "Wow! Whitening my teeth is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made." I can honestly say I am more confident, even in my walk. I speak... up. I smile more! Days are so much more fun when you smile more! It's weird, but my teeth also has an effect on people now. 🙂 OptiSmile and especially Emma King, made this experience the best!!! You don't have to spend a fortune on getting your teeth whiter. Make an appointment with Emma King, I promise you, you won't be disappointed.read more

If there was an option of giving a 6/5 review, I would. After going to many dentists in different countries, I've never experienced anything like OptiSmile. I would rather fly to South Africa and... get my teeth done my Dr Yudelman, just for peace of mind. OptiSmile is miles ahead of the game. From the minute you walk in, you feel instantly at ease and welcome. (Not something I have ever felt, walking into a dentist) This is all thanks to their amazing team and the beautiful practice - filled with natural light. Dr Clifford Yudelman is an outstanding dentist. I felt NO pain. Not even from the numerous injections (something I'm petrified of) OR getting my gums lasered!!! If anything, I felt far too relaxed! Lying back in a comfy chair, with an incredible sea view and a blanket to keep me warm, listening to music, knowing that I was in an experts hands. I had a CEREC done, all in one sitting. While Dr Yudelman walked me through the entire process - the technology is state of the art! I was talked through the entire process and made extremely comfortable. I cannot recommend this clinic highly enough. So friendly, efficient and extremely professional. Thank you for looking after me, and fitting me in at such short notice!read more
