  • How did you get into this line of work?
How did you get into this line of work?

My father was a dentist and I always new that this is the direction my life would take. After practicing all over the world, I haven’t looked back since. One of my proudest moments was having my father visit OptiSmile and the vision he inspired become a reality for me.


  • What’s your favourite thing about working at OptiSmile?
What’s your favourite thing about working at OptiSmile?

It brings me great satisfaction to see how patients love the natural light and high ceilings, and relax very quickly when they enter OptiSmile Dental Care of Sea Point.


  • What story led to your becoming one of OptiSmile’s Sea Point dentists?
What story led to your becoming one of OptiSmile’s Sea Point dentists?

That’s a long story! After graduating at University of Witwatersrand Dental School in 1983, I went on to practice in London, UK for 4 years while taking my California Board exams.
In 1986 I relocated to San Diego, California and after working in a group practice for a short time I purchased a lovely family dental practice in a beach community very similar to Sea Point.

I travelled far and wide and fell in love with Australia, and in 2002 I sold my practice and moved to Perth, Australia.
After trying learn kite surfing I decided that dentistry was a better option for me and I started a practice in a small shopping centre in Nedlands.
I became an avid road cyclist and in 2014 completed The 3 Peak Challenge, a gruelling one day race that covers 250 KM and over 5000 meters of vertical climbing. It took 11 hours of non-stop pedalling. A month later I successfully completed another 250 KM race called The 3 Dams Challenge.

In spite of all this adventure, my family lives in South Africa and after returning 4 times between September 2013 and May 2014, I made up my mind to return to my first love way back from school days, family and country of birth.

In November 2014 I moved back to South Africa permanently.

After looking for premises I found the perfect location for a dental practice in the Point Mall in Sea Point. Three ocean facing chairs with coastal views to Robben Island and beyond. After working with 4 different designers to get the relaxing peaceful look and feel right, I spent 7 months building my dream practice, complete with all the latest, state of the art dental equipment.




Worried about finance? For procedures not fully covered by medical aid, there are a range of dental finance options to help make your investment in your teeth more manageable.

MASTERCHEF SA 2013

I was won over by the “crack a smile, not a tooth” Instagram bio and then I arrived at a space with state of the art tech, a sleek overview and a most sincere welcome. It’s this combo that makes Optismile a cut WAY above the rest.

Many people experience pain when their wisdom teeth come in, but there’s a reason why these molars are problematic. Key takeaways: – Our ancestors needed these “extra” teeth to chew hard roots and tough meats, and their jaws were larger to accommodate the teeth. – Modern diets don’t require big molars, so when these teeth […]
