Professional from beginning to end. Thanks for the great service.
I'm on holiday in Cape Town. I walk by this place everyday on the way to the gym. It all looks brand new, clean and very high tech. I was intrigued so asked for some prices which were reasonable especially compared to London. I decided to try it out and booked in for a clean. I was impressed with the level of service and how meticulous Dr Yudelman was. I liked it so much that I went back the next day to replace an old metal filling. Shame I don't have more time in Cape Town otherwise I'd be there a few more times. I rarely give anything 5 starts but this place gets my thumbs up
A professional and excellent experience. Dr Clifford is clearly passionate about his role and offers exceptional service. An in depth consultation before having my check up. Dr Clifford put me right at ease after I explained my fear of going to the dentist.
The staff are very friendly and informative.
The office...just WOW! Advance technology used and the views from the office over looking the bay are lovely.
Overall experience was fantastic, thank you Dr Clifford and Denise!
OptiSmile is the cleanest, friendliest and most hi-tech dentist I've ever seen. I came in for a cleaning and the service was second to none. Highly recommended!
Not yet sat in the chair and customer service already impressive. Missed my appointment and only received care and attentive, genuine concern. Pretty rare nowadays!Looking forward to first treatment.
During our vacation in CT my wife broke off one of her upper front teeth last night. As bad as that event was as positive was the experience at Optismile. The service was defintely first class, from being greeted at the reception to the perfect treatment of Dr. Ratan. The fracture is absolutely invisible. Thank you for all your help. Now she's smiling again!
The service is impeccable. I spoke to Juliet, literally the best assistant, who tried to assist in booking an appointment for my Impacted wisdom. The dentist could clearly see that my tooth was to close to the nerve by an X-ray I sent via what’sapp. They referred me to a specialist at a near by hospital instead of forcing a consultation to say the same. Extremely grateful and highly recommend OptiSmileThanks Kasha
I have to compliment you again on the incredible customer experience at OptiSmile. From the moment I walk through the door, the communication and interaction with yourself, your colleagues and personnel. And off-course the meticulous approach you have to your work and top quality service received.
Excellent service! Clifford and the team are friendly and professional and make a huge effort to place you at ease.Highly recommended!
Very thorough, professional service. They have all the newest technology in order to accurately diagnose and assess problems. They are also very honest and will give you the best advice for your unique situation. I highly recommend visiting OptiSmile.
Very good service from very friendly staff .Work is done very professionally with high tech equipment .My encounter with optismile was very positive and will definitely keep coming back with any dental needs .
If I had only one word to describe my experience at OptiSmile, it would be incredible! From the minute I walked in, I was warmly greeted and welcomed with a smile by the staff. I felt so welcome and relaxed. Dr. Yudelman was my dentist and he was fantastic! I've been to several dentists throughout my life and he was the best. He paid great attention to my needs and concerns. He was friendly and warm. He really listened to my concerns and was able to create a very personalized plan for my teeth. All of the staff is very experienced and all of the technology is very advanced. At one point, Dr. Yudelman called over Dr. Harris to take a look at a problem tooth. Dr. Harris was extremely busy and still took the time to come over and check on me. The service here is fantastic and everyone takes great pride in making you happy. I 100% recommend OptiSmile to everyone!!
Definitely a 5 star dental practice , all the processes were smooth and efficient from making the appointment via whatsapp to meeting the dentist. They are very convenient and professional. I am very happy with the incredible services I received from the dental team at Opismile.
Friendly and Professional Dentist with excellent facilities. Really happy I found them and wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great service and great results!
Surpassed any expectations I've ever had dealing with a dentist or practice. State of the art equipment and facilities (with lovely view to match) coupled with really personal friendly service. Impressive.
The best experience! I was visiting from Sydney, Australia and began having severe toothache. My sister recommended that I see her dentist, Dr Clifford Yudelman who saw me immediately. After a full scan/X-ray, he diagnosed an abscess inside an incomplete root canal. He referred me to an endodontist, Dr Tony Ashberg, who did a brilliant job of redoing the root canal, and treating the abscess. A return visit to OptiSmile and I was given the a clear. Excellent service, awesome facilities and staff, thank you Dr Yudelman!
The level of service I received on Monday was phenomenal. I felt proud about the mission and vision Optismile engages. The office space is innovative full of technology to assist you with all your needs you require for your dental treatments. The indepth information on each option I have now to suit my needs and apply to my budget was spectacular. Thank you to the Staff and a special thanks to Wedaad and Dr Clifford. Once again Thank you so muxh
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!
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.
Best experience at the dentist by far!
Beautiful atmosphere, amazing staff and superb service. Definitely going to be a returning customer! ✨
Great all round. Lovely location with easy parking. Beautiful views. Clean and modern space. Friendly staff and fast service. Efficient booking. And the work itself is fantastic. Highly recommended
I received invasilign treatment for a tooth that had twisted in the wrong direction and caused my front teeth to shift and protrude forward. I was overly impressed with the professional service and the lack of surprises during and after my treatment. Everything played out exactly as explained and my teeth are the kind of straight I've always wanted. Dr Smeyatsky made me feel informed and relaxed during my visits. A big thank you to the practice for being professional and friendly during my invasilign treatment.
Excellent work and service. The dentist came in special on a Saturday to fix this visiting sailor’s tooth! Technologically advanced and beautiful office overlooking the Atlantic Ocean!
I am a dentist practicing in Sydney, Australia visiting Cape Town. I stumbled upon one of the most beautiful practices I have ever seen and decided to to walk in. I was greeted by the most kind and patient dentist Dr Clifford. He happily gave me a tour and of the amazing facility and we had a long chat about dentistry.I would highly reccomend if you are looking for a new dentist with a great gentle personality!
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.
Incredible facility with outstanding service. Dr Yudelman and his staff make all the effort to ensure that clients are comfortable, well looked after and acquire all the value for their money. Professionals of the highest caliber and altogether, great people. I would recommend this facility to anyone and everyone.
Cannot stop raving about the service I received from Optismile. Like most people, I was apprehensive at first but Dr Yudelman and his entire team restored my teeth to a standard I couldn't have ever imagined. The advanced technology and methods they use put me straight at ease, knowing that I was receiving the best care from experienced professionals who are evidently passionate about what they do. I was also blown away by the customer service, available to answer questions, and schedule emergency appointments when ever I needed. Optismile deserves all the praise it is receiving.
I am so relieved that I went to Dr Yudelman! I had such a rough time trying to resolve an issue that was created by a previous dentist. He took so much care and carved extra time out to get the source of the problem. He made sure to explain everything to me in detail. He was gentle. He considered the whole picture and even looked into my ongoing migraine issue & had Dr. Harris consult me on that, offering a possible solution. Additionally, his pricing was seriously reasonable. Cannot recommend Optismile highly enough. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Love this dentist! He's so gentle and kind
Best Dentist ever!! Been with Dr. Yudelman and his team for the last 4 years. Such a good service, very professional and forthcoming.
I don’t believe you’d get better care or service anywhere in the world!I was a patient of Clifford Yudelman prior to moving from Sea Point to Montagu. I had an emergency 2 months ago and was unable to see the local dentist as fully booked but managed to get an appointment at a village close by.Problem not properly resolved and a week ago it flared up again…..badly! Waiting period to get back to see the previous dentist but when things got serious I contacted Clifford. I hadn’t seen him since prior to lockdown and even though I was 200km away he went out of his way to assist me, getting an appointment with the local dentist the same day, sending all my information on record through to the new dentists room and constant contact to keep me posted as things were unfolding. His prognosis was correct too and I’m now on strong antibiotics and know my problems will soon be a thing of the past.Clifford, I really can’t thank you enough for your help and outstanding care, and as I started off my review will end the same way….I don’t believe you’d get better care or service anywhere in the world! THANK YOU!
The staff was super welcoming and took great care of me from the begining of my dental procedure with opti smile till the end.The Doctor made sure I was comfortable throughout to procedure and gave me a big smile makeover, I still cannot believe how beautiful my smile is. I still have more procedures to do but I am happy with the service and will definately go back.
On 21 December I broke my temporary denture plate and contacted Optismile's 24 hours service. Despite the late hour Clifford contacted me to ascertain the problem. I sent him pics of the broken plate and he referred me to a Dental Laboratory The lab on the 22 Dec took 5 hours to completely restore my plate doing a superb job of strengthening it and reworking it to fit properly. Far better than it had ever been before. Clifford kept in touch during the whole process without there being any recompense for his time. I must admit I have not come across a similar service in Jhb and am delighted that such a service exists in CT. All strength to its continuing success. Many thanks Clifford for your innovative concept and your follow ups Kind regards L
Really professional and friendly service.
The most professional service and work you could ever ask for. The team literally went out of their way to make sure that I was looked after and kept me up to date on everything I needed to know.The practice itself must be one of the most beautiful in the world with views over the Atlantic coastline and Robben Island.Thank you very much to Dr Shaa, Beatrice, Dr Yudelman and Akhona for the wonderful experience and breath-taking results.I'll definitely be back.
Optismile is by far the best dental practise I have ever been to. From the moment I walked in I was made to feel welcome and put at ease. I am quite nervous about dentists but everything was effortless from Buhle coming to meet me to Dr Natalia van Niekerk explaining everything to me in detail and putting me completely at ease. She and Buhle took the time to get to know me, understand the issues and my goals and treated me with compassion and like a person. I have dealt with many dentists in various parts of the world for a very long time but Dr Natalie, Buhle and the team at Optismile are setting a whole new level of standards and service that I don't believe is matched anywhere else and for once I have a positive view of dentistry and for the first time I am Optimisitc about my smile. You cannot go wrong with Optismile.
The dental, hygienist and orthodontic services are absolutely excellent. The staff are extremely helpful, polite and friendly. Making appointments is slick and easy. Nothing is too much trouble for the team. Everyone is friendly, compassionate and highly professional. The premises are spotless, with flawless facilities up to date with the best tech and equipment. I have truly never experienced better dental and orthodontic care. The team are stellar professionals, experts in their field.
I had such a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience at OptiSmile.Fazlin made sure that I felt comfortable, before the procedure, and really personalized the experience for me. I will definitely return. Great service with a smile 😁
I had a really pleasant experience with Optismile. I had gone in to see them after I was in agonising pain with a horrible toothache. I used their whatsapp line to get a hold of them and they were great with immediate response time and putting me in touch with a Dentist for a online video consulation. On the same day I was able to see the dentist and get treatment after which I was booked in for a tooth extraction. The tooth extraction was absolutely painless and as comfortable as possible. Dr Shaa Hurribance was very thorough and calming, explain every procedure every step of the way. It was all so quick and easy. I would definitely recommend their services.
Excellent team! Friendly and professional. Best service! Thankyou 👏🏻
OptiSmile epitomize what mastery is all about; great service, real knowledge and a bubbling passion that is evident from everyone in the clinic. These guys care about their craft, and it is lovely finding people like this. And they are a great dentistry team too, who manage ones dental health requirements in a dynamic and broad way. Well done and I would recommend them unreservedly.
My appointments with the hygienist at Optismile have always been great. It is the most thorough yet gentle cleaning that I have ever experienced. My teeth always feel amazing after they’ve been cleaned. Thank you to all the Optismile team - you make it a real pleasure to visit the dentist!
Hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist! Everyone is so friendly, the quality of the service is unbeatable - everything is explained to you in detail. The views are amazing and they will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable, whether it’s taking a break during your appointment or giving you a blanket because it’s cold! (Can’t forget the amazing sound system they have where you can play any music you want during your appointment!!)
Some years ago, OptiSmile is where I went to sort out some major problems with my teeth - I had to undergo four weeks of tough work to restore my teeth just before my wedding. I can say that the work that was done here was wonderful, the dentists are well trained and really worked carefully and thoroughly.Now, present day, they're still a great office, building on their great reputation, I mostly use them for cleaning and small dental services, they do really great work, I always remember the day I walked in and the fear of a million suns was quenched because of the wonderful attitude people have here towards their patients.Fazlin has been cleaning my teeth since day one and she's always been one of the kind spirits that I always remember from this office, and she only improves on every visit.No lasting teeth sensitivity, pain or problems.
Friendly, professional & gentle, thank you kindly!
Invisalign treatment produced unbelievable results with very skew teeth to start with. The treatment is more expensive than 'normal' braces but absolutely worth it.
Clifford is amazing. The best dentist in South Africa.
Dr Harris is world class!
Great experience. Halfway through my course and impressed by the change I can see! Dr Harris and the staff are super friendly and knowledgeable, and take great care in explaining the process and any questions.
Highly recommend Dr Clifford Yudelman and the staff at optiSmile!
Dr. Shaa: Best dentist I ever had, hands down!
No better dental office than OptiSmile!I’m originally from Germany and according to Google and common opinion, dentists in Germany are supposed to be one the best in the world, however, I have never been to a German Dentist who’s getting even close to the quality and competence of OptiSmile!I came to OptiSmile for the first time in 2021, after struggling for a long time with uncomfortable bite and some other issues. So I went among other things through an Invisalign treatment with Dr Harris.I’m absolutely amazed by Dr Harris knowledge and dedication in his field as well as for Dr Clifford’s attention to detail for every single teeth. Also, I always felt welcomed by every single staff member. I’m not exaggerating if I’d say, I’d fly to Cape Town for OptiSmile from other parts of the world!OptiSmile definitely more than just a dental office, I couldn't recommend it more!
I came to right place a friend told me where I could get a million dollar smile😁and just had my teeth done very happy with the results and people are friendly and make you feel at home very happy.
The most incredible care and personable treatment! Fantastic team doing brilliant work and creating fabulous smiles! Would highly recommend for Invisalign 😁
Dr Cara Loubser was fantastic!I absolutely fear going to the dentist, but she made it such an easy experience. This is saying something after spending close to 6 hours this week at the dentist.THANK YOU, THANK YOU, DR LOUBSER!!!!
I went to Optismile last week for the first time and was booked for dental cleaning by a beautiful lady by the name of Fazlin. Not only did she do a superb job, but she also spent ample time before and after my treatment educating me on optimum dental hygiene.What a fantastic experience I had in the most beautiful dental practise I have ever visited.Clearly the management spend a lot of time and energy training their staff and other professionals because I got the impression that no one misses a beat.I'm looking so forward to see Dr Clifford Yudelman next month for my dental check-up.Optismile you have a new client / patient for life!Thank you and keep up your fantastic work.Hardus BesterBantry Bay, Cape Town.
I went from having really crooked teeth that I was ashamed of to having near perfect teeth within 6 months with Invisalign. The experience was quick and easy. Optismile is really great - super friendly, organised and helpful. Thanks Dr Harris for the experience! I will definitely be back for all my dental needs.
Amazing experience! I have been to the dentist all around the world. I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences. From their efficient what’s app booking process, to a tele consultation before I decided to move forward with them. To actually getting the work done. The office is modern, has the latest technology and the staff is amazing. I will definitely be coming here any time I am back in South Africa. Thanks OptiSmile!
Wonderful, professional and approachable team with a genuine interest in your well being and happiness. Pleasure to deal with.
Who would have thought that visiting the dentist would feel like a treat! From a streamlined, simple booking process, to a thoughtful and welcoming reception staff, to a professional and detailed assessment. Perfect for nervous patients, or doctor-weary old hands (and teeth). Highly recommended.
Had a very very good experience and I'll definitely recommend them.
Absolute exceptional professionalism, compassion and workmanship! I get my teeth cleaned here regularly, and recently had some bonding for my front teeth to smooth out the surfaces and remove the discoloration. I am wildly impressed!
My international clients have travelled the world and have visited a few dental practises, this was by far the best experience ever! The surgery is incredibly beautiful inside, staff are so kind and professional and Dr Harris was simply amazing! Thanks so much
I saw Dr Clifford Yudelman after the board hit my front tooth while surfing 3 days earlier and I needed a small repair on the retainer that is behind my teeth.I travel around the world and found Optismile in Cape town through Google!A huge recommendation to the whole team, everyone was friendly, but especially to Dr Clifford Yudelman and Akhona the dental assistant!They did a great job explaining every step!I would come back here anytime!Thank you so much for your help!
Very professional and friendly. Felt relaxed throughout the entire experience. Would strongly recommend.
First time I’ve enjoyed going to the dentist!
Best experience ever at a dentist. Normally I dread my dentist appointments but OptiSmile will leave you excited for your visit. Can’t go wrong with Optismile!
Claire did a brilliant job refitting my cap that popped out on my flight to CT. She was quick, efficient and reasonably priced. Saved my holiday!!
Definitely the best practice I have to been to by far. My dental anxiety is gone. The place is organized, clean and the staff is extremely helpful.Thanks Dr Shar and his wonderful assistants who provided me with a pain-free experience. Will definitely recommend anyone to go to this practice.
All staff were extremely friendly and made me feel super comfortable!
First dentist visit in a (insert extremely) long time. What a pleasure it was! Comfortable, professional and welcoming experience from start to finish. High-end equipment makes it all the more interesting and comfortable. Very satisfied with the cleaning (Dr Shaahir) and Invisalign consultation with Dr Harris. Looking forward to the next visit.
Great staff and excellent results
A visit to the dentist was always a necessary and unpleasant thing, until i went to OptiSmile. They organise everything so well, the staff is incredibly friendly and the visit itself felt like i went to a spa: I came back home relaxed and recharged and it felt like I bought myself a wellnesstreatment instead of a dentist appointment (no joke!). This was actually the first time in my life that my dentist checked not only my teeth but my whole facial wellbeing, and explained everything so well. Highly highly recommend going here!
Couldn't be happier with the Invisalign treatment outcome from orthodontist Dr Harris Smeyatsky and cosmetic finishing by Dr Clifford Yudelman. Exceeded my wildest expectations in half the time expected. The American Invisalign processes is not cheap, but great teeth is best investment one can make. Try it!
Best experience I've had, the whole team is amazing thank you Dr Shaa, a very patient, kind and professional Dr. My mouth feels clean I will definitely be back.I would give 10 stars not 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Great reception staff and excellent dental staff. Dr Harris has been fantastic, professional and friendly which has been great for my daughter. Highly recommend the entire practice.
Incredibly friendly and competent people, world class facility! Highly personalised experience that takes care of all the normal dentistry stress!
Amazing facility, great staff and amazing treatment by Dr Shaahir & Beatrice has Optismile as hands-down the best dentistry facility ive ever been too. It is worth every penny spent and as long as it is up and running i will not be going anywhere else !! Thats for sure !!!
Thank you to Optismile and especiaply to Dr Harris. I am so very happy with my Invisalign smile. I would always recommend you as the best Dr. You have been so wonderful and caring. Thank you for bringing out my teeth's full potential 😉
Wow this dentist is literally the best one I've ever been to! They give you a break down of everything you need to know about your teeth and how it would look after treatment. Fantastic!!
Absolutely amazing, state of the art, friendly, welcoming, modern, efficient, passionate, one-of-a-kind, warm, clean, world-class dental facility. Teeth heaven!!! Results much much deeper than just physical smiles! There's pure heart there. And ridiculously well priced. You can stop looking around, you've found THE BEST. The rest of the world will have a hard time catching up to OptiSmile. Well done to everyone there! <3
Thank you to Dr. Shaahir and Beatrice who did a fantastic job and made me feel welcome and comfortable, they even play your favourite music to make you feel at home. I would recommend everyone to give Optismile a visit!
I would give 10 stars if I could - my Invisalign experience with Dr. Harris has been nothing short of an incredible miracle. I struggled to smile before my treatment as I was so self conscious but the team at Optismile made me feel so comfortable and treated me with the utmost care. The results speak for themselves... Dr. Harris is brilliant - I'll be recommending Optismile to as many people as possible! Thank you guys so much!
When I enter at optismile I was feeling scared but the smile the stuff gave me and the warm welcome then I started to loosen up all I want to say thank you so much optismile for bringing back my smile thank you
Best dental experience with super friendly and professional staff . Dr Mandy and her assistant were incredible and provided the most comfortable chair experience I’ve had to date . I highly recommend the practice
I can’t say enough about the professional quality of care I received here. I am originally from the states and have had implants done there, coming to Capetown, I was a bit nervous that someone would be able to pick up where my periodontist in the states had left off. Dr.Mandy and her assistant Beatrice were amazing. I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to dental work and they did all they could to work with me on that. I left happy and relaxed and will consider them for all my dental needs and cannot recommend them highly enough.
Optismile the best place to bring back you smile,,can't stop smiling 😁😁amazing experience I've got ,very friendly
Doctor Mandy is the sweetest dentist i have met in my life. I will never go to a different dentist again. She is an absolute gem. She was so patient and understanding and it was almost like a psychologist session and denistry in one go. I was yapping on about my stressful life and why i am grinding my teeth etc.gave great advice and very professional. It was a really pleasant experience.
Amazing experience at OptiSmile and quite possibly the best dentist I've been to. The entire experience from the X-rays to the treatment is incredible and you are kept in the know the entire way through. Would highly recommend this dentist.
Today I had yet another great experience at OptiSmile,. Between the state-of-the-art equipment and the great care that they take, they really do take the anxiety out of a trip to the dentist .
Clifford and Harris are the best in town for sure!
Visiting the Dentist can be an anxious experience for some people but wait till you visit Optismile - it will leave you wanting to see your Dentist more often than not. Dr Yudelman's practice came highly recommended by a friend and after much deliberation, decided to book our appt. It turned out to be a very efficient and admin focused pre-appointment which eliminates the whole form completion process when you arrive at the practice. The appt booking is streamlined and the experience at the practice is clean, soft and open. Dr Yudelman is very professional and explains what he's doing and what to expect as he moves through the check up process. The receptionist is warm and welcoming and they have a very rigid hygiene process when you enter the practice, even giving you a free surgical mask to wear. The place feels like you're walking into a casual Scandinavian 'remote-working' environment. I loved it and cannot recommend it enough! Oh yes, and my teeth look great!
During Stage 4 Covid-19 National Lockdown, I developed a dental emergency and urgently needed a dentist. I contacted Dr Clifford Yudelman, principal dentist and founder of OptiSmile and he speedily and effectively arranged a consultation for me with Dr Tony Ashberg, an endodontist at OptiSmile.It was with skilled expertise that Dr Tony found the cause of the pain previously difficult to diagnose correctly. In order to optimise treatment, both doctors collaborated with each other and did not hesitate to refer me for oral surgery which turned out to be very successful. This high level of collaboration inspires confidence. Their friendly approach, empathy, kindness and high level of care was very comforting and re-assuring.After the initial visit, I required further interventions and have been treated with the same level of expertise, care and warmth. What impressed me was the state-of-the art diagnostic technology for dental treatments.I would sincerely like to thank the team at OptiSmile for their five star treatment. It is with the greatest confidence that I can recommend a visit to this practice.
I had a dental emergency while staying in Cape Town and showed up here first thing on Monday morning desperate for some help. I was treated so well and saw a Dr almost immediately. They are a very kind and knowledgeable group, I was grateful to have found them!
The staff and specialists at OptiSmile are amazing. They did a fantastic job-professional and very kind and considerate. Their offices/rooms are impeccable and state of the art. I felt that i was in very good hands! Will definately recommend them.
I must say that I am overly impressed with my experience at Optismile... From the initial phone call to my actual visit was an absolute pleasure. Dr Clifford, the owner was my initial appt... And the pride and passion he showed towards his business is refreshing. The set up is beyond average advanced technology and everything was clearly explained and made me feel I was in the right place and with the right professionals. I would highly recommended Optismile to anyone In Need of a dentist or any work required regarding your teeth and smile.
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 recommended
Highly recommended! ThanksDr. Yudelman for helping me out with my emergency tooth break today. You and your team are absolute rockstars!
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.
I hadn't been to a dentist in over 5 years and had a very bad experience when I was young so I was a bit worried.I had now gotten a cavity that I could see and knew it was time to book a visit. I chose Optismile because of their great reviews and they absolutely deserve 5 stars! The venue has a great location/view and is very clean, staff is friendly and their work is amazing. I have already recommend optismile to my whole family who will all go in january!Clifford promised me that there would be no pain during the removal of my cavity and filling process and he was 100% correct!
Firstly Thank you Optismile, for the warm welcome and professional attention to detail, the friendly atmosphere, clean environment. Dr Clifford Yudelman and his lovely assistant was extremely patient and caring with Sara my 11 year old daughter whom was in pain but at the same time super anxious. 5 star treatment and highly recommended.Once again thank you and God Bless.
Most amazing dental experience I've ever had! Super modern high-tech facility with a beautiful vie . Most importantly, Dr. Yudelman is exceptionally skilled and has a very warm personality.
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.
Professional, warm and state of the art equipment
State of the art dentistry. Had a painless tooth extraction and the dentist was quite informative about what he was doing. Almost fell asleep in the chair. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL experience. Professional & SUPER friendly. By far the best dental practice I’ve been to.
Honestly, OptiSmile is my favourite. Friendly, efficient. The staff is so accommodating and warm welcoming.Best. Thank you!
When people hear the word dentist it conjures feelings of angst and discomfort, but from the second I walked through the doors of Optismile I felt like I was flying first class through a Sci-fi movie. The friendly smiles and unrivaled pleasant nature of Dr Clifford made me never want to leave. Pair that with the futuristic and premium machinery, I don't see myself going to another dentist ever again. If I could give them 6 stars I would!
Definitely a 5 star rating from me!After having to rush in for an emergency root canal treatment and being in severe pain for about 4 days, I was seen by Doc Kaveer who was not only professional but definitely knows how to talk you through everything that he is doing!From meeting him in the reception area to the completion of the root canal (which I was terrified to have done due to everyone telling me how painful it can be to have a root canal) he made me feel comfortable and really made sure that everything was okay throughout the procedure!Not only does Doc Kaveer know what he is doing they also have the latest dental technology and equipment at optismile to make sure you are well looked after!Oh and the ocean helped of course!Thanks again Doc Kaveer!!! Pain free and smiling!#optismile #rootcanal #seapoint #bestdentist

I want to start off by saying thanks to Dr Clifford for taking me in to learn under your practice at OptiSmile. It takes passion and confidence in your work for someone to do so, and I was positively surprised by your ability to teach with enthusiasm. I have learned a whole lot from this team and admire your skill and expertise. Looking forward to seeing you all in the future!
Had the best experience with Clifford, who fixed my cracked tooth. Professional and kind, which completely cured my fear of dentist 😉 He took all the time needed to make me feel comfortable and was really good at telling me everything that was going on at all times. Would recommend Optismile to everyone!
It was a pleasure spending time with Dr Clifford Yudelman as an intern for the charity, Dental Wellness Trust! The dental practice is immaculate and the whole team here looked after us extremely well, letting us utilise the facilities for our dental screening programme.It's always great when dentists support charities and go out of their way for projects such as this.
Not your average dental practice. They make the impossible possible. These people are rock stars !! Looking forward to my next visit 😀
Not very often that you can say you had a great root canal, but I sure did! For a person who dreads the dentist, struggles to numb up and gets shakey at the thought of sitting in a the chair, I couldn't be happier that I found you and your team! Dr Ratan, thank you for having patience, educating me and saving my tooth! Bright smiles all the way!!
Dr Kaveer Ratan and Dr Clifford Yudelman were amazing with my son who had an accident on a weekend, and broke his front tooth in half. They dealt with him and me (a hysterical mom) so professionally, they were honestly a God send. Thank you so much. Hugely appreciated!!
Dr. Kaveer Ratan has saved my vacation. Optismile is an outstanding, up to date and high tech dental office. Getting my fractured denture fixed means so much. Thank You.
I travelled from Australia to renew my smile at optiSmile in Cape Town. I was extremely impressed with their friendliness and state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. My special thanks to Dr Kaveer Ratan for his brilliance, dedication and caring manner. I am thrilled with my results and would highly recommend optiSmile for all your dental requirements.
I had a great experience at this state-of-the-art facility. I will definitely be back for a cleaning.
Love the new site - so fresh and so clean
I have used this dentist first in Perth, Australia, where I had a bicycle accident and needed to fix many of my teeth. Now I have been at the new practice in Cape Town (travelled specifically from Norway as soon as the practice opened!), and it is absolutely fantastic. State-of-the-art technology, very friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. I really recommend it.
Wow! This has to be the most beautiful, state of the art, friendly and professional dental office.
Dr Yudelman makes visiting the dentist a pleasurable experience!!
Just had a guided tour of this amazing high tech dental practice looks incredible wishing my old friend all the success in this new venture
Service excellence from a long line of dentists and photographers...
