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.

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. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

Overall a stunning experience at Optismile. On my first day I filled out the patients information sheet and within the first 5mins of my appointment I was referred to Emma King for Phillips Zoom Whitening. Emma offered me a bunch of options and we settled on an at home treatment plan. I am almost finished with my whitening process and can say I am extremely impressed with her service and the product!

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

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.
18:55 03 Jan 20
Had the most incredible experience at OptiSmile Sea Point today. Emma King from Zoom Whitening did an unbelievable job at whitening my teeth. I am absolutely thrilled with the results! I will definitely be back! Thank you Clifford and Emma!

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!

I have visited the OptiSmile practice numerous times and have only had positive experiences. The staff at reception are friendly and the doctors are truly passionate about the work that they do. The technology available to both patient and doctor is world-class. Rest assured that you will receive the best treatment available when visiting OptiSmile! Doctor Yudelman takes great care to ensure that his patients are comfortable and having the best possible experience. Hygienist, Emma King, is the best I have ever been with. She doesn't pass any judgement and is very efficient. Overall a wonderful, five-star experience!

I was traveling to South Africa for a holiday and needed to have some dental work done. After seeing the great reviews for optismile I decided to send off an email and inquire about an appointment and procedure for an inlay on a broken molar. . I didn't expect a response right away as it was Friday after business hours but Clifford himself wrote back assuring me he could help. And all the subsequent communications were amazing. We chatted over WhatsApp even having a phone call to discuss, his kindness and knowledge put me at ease. Not to mention the amazing response times on WhatsApp, I was truly amazed. I was given an apointment time that wouldn't interfere too much with my travels and when it finally came time to get the work done (inlays and filings) the friendly staff, amazing views, gorgeous facility and the reasuring words from Clifford got me through all that in a jif. And no sensitivity afterwards either! I had my teeth cleaned by Emma as well and it was the most effective and gentle cleaning I've ever had. My gums stopped bleeding just a day after that cleaning (and I've had cleanings done elsewhere that did not help) Clifford is really capable, passionate and genuinely nice person who I'm really glad I put my trust into. It will be tough to find this level of service elsewhere. Thanks again to the team at Optismile 🙂

After a year of monthly visits I can honestly say I never had a single bad experience. Always met with friendly smiles from the ladies at the front counter. Dr Harris was incredible always explaining everything in great detail, and happy to answer any questions I had. Emma was always so very friendly and bubbly and just made your visits fun. Dr Kaveer was great always so profession! Overall a great experience with the whole team thanks for brightening my smile 😉

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!

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.

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!

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 😬.

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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!

SAExpat from Chicago - stopped in on the off chance and ended up having veneers and work done with Dr. Kaveer and whitening with Emma. Up there with the best in the USA with the added benefit of being super nice. Would highly recommend and if one could say dental work was an enjoyable experience this would be it. My teeth look amazing thanks to them. Their expertise is first rate and they are the nicest people you would meet. And for my USA friends having your work done in Cape Town will save you more than enough to pay for your trip - couldn't ask for more.

I made a booking to have my teeth whitened with with Emma at Optismile using Philips Zoom whitening products. What an absolutely fantastic experience, I was quite nervous not knowing what to expect. Emma is amazing, extremely professional and an expert in her field. It did not hurt one bit and and I had virtually no sensitivity. The Optismile practice is wonderful too. I am extremely happy with my results and I cannot believe that I was lucky enough to have this experience and through Emma donate to helping animals and a good cause. I am smiling from ear to ear.

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.

I want to start off by saying thanks to Dr Clifford for taking me in to learn under your practice at OptiSmile.

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

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!

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.

I have had the most amazing experience as a tooth whitening patient of Emma KingHer insight and knowledge in the field reflects her passion for striving for only the best. Her approach to management of her patients is clearly customized for the individual patient. Something that rarely occurs for procedures of this nature I was absolutely blown away with the very obvious difference the very first exposure to the procedure had made to my appearance and more importantly my confidence. I look forward to continuing with further management as I am certain that it will only be good Bid shoutout to Emma King and Optismile

There isn't a week that goes by when someone doesn't compliment me on how brilliantly white my teeth are thanks to the work of Emma at OptiSmile. I am seriously impressed with their outstanding customer service and the results really are incredible.I could not have hoped for a better outcome.

I had a dental emergency late at night and knew there was no way I could go to work and face the world in that state. I started searching online for a dental office in my area and stumbled upon Optismile.. .... boy was I lucky and in for a treat. I filled their online booking form and immediately got a WhatsApp message from the actual doctor. Time was about 22:00 we chatted about my issue and he immeditely booked me to come in for treatment. I walked in and was greeted by a friendly staff. I was even given a tour of the facility by the doctor. They worked on my smile and the results exceeded my expectation. I honestly have to safe they are the best in town. I've lived in the US and I've never had such great service and in such great facilities and the cost was just right. Thank you Doctor Yudelman and Ratan not forgetting your dental assistant that held my hand and made sure I was okay throughout the whole experience. I'm truly a happy customer:) Thank you all.

Emma is one of those unique specialists you’d be lucky to meet. She is an expert in her field, takes a professional interest in her clients and exudes energy and passion for what she does. She is meticulous, highly knowledgeable, client service orientated and a true professional who inspires confidence. Emma ensured that the Zoom teeth whitening process was painless, interesting and even brought a fun element to the overall experience! Prior to the teeth whitening Dr Harris worked his expert 'magic' on my teeth using Invisalign Orthodontics aligners; the results were remarkable and the process was seamless. Both Emma, Dr Harris and the Optismile team have exceeded my expectations at every level! They are way ahead of the curve and I cannot recommend them more highly!

Dr. Kaveer Ratan and everyone else at Optismile have honestly become like family.You're treated most wonderfully from the minute you enter their doors and it does not stop, even after you've left.My dad had severe sensitivity and discomfort in his mouth for pretty much all my nineteen years on this earth and today my daddy literally danced with joy when he received the call that his dentures were ready for collection!From the incredible treatment (medically and in every way imaginable), the competent and lovely team, the magnificent view of the ocean from their practice, their convenient location (where you can quickly grab a bite to eat or do some grocery shopping, all in one), and even blankies on hand, just in case.Optismile is fantastic: we always leave with smiles on our faces as well as in our hearts.A big thank you to Dr. Ratan, Juliette, and the entire team at Optismile. You guys are truly exceptional.

I had to book an appointment with Dr Yudelman in March for an urgent issue. I'm from France, living in San Francisco, CA but was traveling in Cape Town... It's probably the best dentist experience I never had, quick communication with the team to book my appointment, spotless facility, latest technology equipment, incredible views and lastly a very awesome Dr! He spent 30mn on my 3D X-Ray explain me the work who has to be done, took pictures of all my teeth with a professional equipment and sent me a email with all this... I had to do 1 filling urgently but ended up doing 2 more, during the whole procedure, Dr Yudelman checks on you, explains what he's doing, etc. All these little things change the experience from an average service to a stand out service. Let me put it this way, I'm thinking about keeping Dr Yudelman as my dentist and come all the way from San Francisco, he's not only the best dentist in Cape Town but probably one of the best worldwide! Cheers

Clifford has impressed me from day one. He is thorough and explains what is going on throughout any procedure. He is concerned about the comfort of the patient and is extremely caring. His staff are professional but very gentle and kind . My dealings with Juliette have been so special as she is always helpful and considerate. Acorna is a great assistant to Clifford and she ensures my comfort with a beautiful smile and warm understanding.Wow ! For a dental experience which feels like a restful break .... well that is something! Thank you all Dr.Yudelman and staff ! Shelley Friedman

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!!

So incredibly chuffed with my teeth whitening experience at Optismile with Emma king.The excellent service began upon booking. I received a reminder the day before my appointment with a google map link to Optismile. Making my trip their an absolute pleasure.I was a bit nervous, as I had my teeth whitened a few years back and recalled them being a bit sensitive afterward. Emma explained and reassured me that with her method of application and the Zoom product, this would not happen. She was completely right! I have 0% sensitivity & I am 100% ecstatic with the results. Thank you so much Emma King. I am absolutely thrilled with my Optimum Smile!

I want to just write a review on my experience with OptiSmile..I’m currently travelling and had a really bad toothache but was trying to soldier through, on way to the gym I passed OptiSmile and walked in on the off chance just maybe someone could take a look as I was worried about it being something serious but had no expectation of being seen or anything!I was greeted by such a lovely young lady called Juliet who was so so helpful and made it possible for me to see a dentist of which they performed an extraction there and then!The facilities are immense .. it’s so so clean and the dentist Dr Kaveer Raven was exceptional .. the treatment was the best I’ve recieved and a day later I’m completely fine and pain free and I’ve had my wisdom tooth out!Not only that the lovely Juliet followed up with me this morning to see how I was - I can honestly say I’ve never recieved any service like this before!If I were ever to read this review I would think it was from someone connected as it sounds over the top but it is actually my real experience with them and you can see I’m a real person from my Instagram account @sal_insta1Thanks again guys you’ve saved my holiday and travels and can’t thank you enough! I will be in for the whitening service also!Thanks

It was my first time at OptiSmile. I was greatly impressed by the service and I will definitely go back over and over. The practice was clean and hygienic. All staff members was friendly and very helpful. My favorite was Emma King (Oral Hygienist). You feel very comfortable and relaxed while she is working on your teeth. I will travel from Johannesburg just to see Emma for a dental appointment. That's how much confidence and trust I have in her. *****

The most professional and competent dental practice I have ever been to and a pleasurable experience from beginning to end. Booking was fast and efficient and I called back to be offered a cancellation that was thought to perhaps be at a better time for me. Dr Yudelman is also a true professional and his pride in his work is evident. He explains each step of every procedure and utilises the most advanced dental technologies in his work. Such levels of professionalism and commitment to customer care are comforting and make a trip to the dentist something to be anticipated and no longer dreaded

When I read reviews on a facility, having far more than the competitors and all are 5’s, I’m usually a bit sceptic... Pity the system does not allow you to give a 5+ rating. When your job is your passion and you’re pretty good at, it is how I’ll describe optiSmile. A large part of one of my teeth broke off and also lost the filling. As a visitor to Sea Point I found optiSmile through Google. My luck returned as I was informed that they could assist. From the moment I arrived until I left after 2 hours with NOW the best looking tooth in my mouth, my first feedback to my friends was WOW! With reference to staff, doctors, setup, technology and results you have a created a place you can be proud off. optiSmile is definitely No 1 on my recommendation list. Thank you Dr Yudelman.

I for one find the prospect of going to the dentist terrifying and sometimes embarrassing if I've neglected my dentist visits in a while. However, OptiSmile staff were 1. Incredibly welcoming and friendly and 2. Professional and delivered amazing results. They use top technology and equipment, made me feel instantly comfortable genuinely care about the client and their concerns and needs. Definately worth every penny! Thanks OptiSmile! See you next year! Very impressed

OptiSmile is excellent in every way. My son chipped his tooth at 6pm on a Saturday night. We were not patients at OptiSmile but found the OptiSmile number following a desperate search for an emergency dentist. Cifford was at the practice within 15mins of taking my call. He immediately gained the trust of my 7 year old son, sealed the tooth to protect it, and within the week had fitted a permanent cap to the tooth that looks exactly like the old tooth. He also picked up other dental problems that had been missed by another dentist at a check up we had a month before. OptiSmile use the latest technology and very importantly a "magic wand' for the anesthetic so my son did not feel a thing. Clifford has a fantastic bed side manner and explains everything he is doing visually through scans and x-rays - full transparency so you know exactly what you are paying for. In addition his pricing is very much in line with other dentists we have visited despite, in my view, offering a far superior service. OptiSmile is definitely the dentist my family will be using going forward.

I had a fantastic experience at OptiSmile yesterday. I had a bit of a dental emergency and they managed to squeeze me in on the same day. Juliet at reception is an absolute darling - friendly, professional and willing to help! Dr Ratan was also brilliant - he spent 2,5 hours working on my teeth, including 30min he spent working past 5pm when all the other staff had already gone home. And then not to mention the lovely ocean view from the dentist chair.... Thank you OptiSmile!

Second time I came to see the oral hygienist here. I was so impressed the first time I asked my wife to book us in whilst on holiday (we emigrated to Australia recently). The lovely ladies at front of house are very welcoming and take care of all your admin needs. My appointment was with Emma King who is very professional and put me at ease (like most people visiting the dentist or oral hygienist isn't high up on my excitement list). The service was amazing and the actual clinic and views are beautiful as well.Would definitely recommend them.

I am a flight attendant, landed in Cape Town with an unexpected pain in one of my tooth. I opened google and searched for the best dental clinic in town... well, the previous reviews lead me to Opti Smile... I walked in and met Juliet, who welcomed me with a lovely smile and did her best to squeeze me in between appointments. Then Dr Clifford took great care of me, with his human warmth and outstanding professionalism, taking the time to explain to mw step by step all the procedures and alternatives. I also highly recomend this clinic to everyone! Thank you all and see you soon! Eugenia

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!

As a person who is petrified of the dentist, it is always a huge deal for me when I actually make an appointment and stick to it. From the moment I walked in to OptiSmile I felt at ease. What a beautiful set up! Dr Yudelman was incredible! It is very seldom that I feel at ease when going to the dentist, however this time my anxiety was almost none existent! Thank you Dr Yudelman and your fantastic team for making me feel comfortable and for explaining everything during the check up. Such amazing service. So amazing that I am actually somewhat 'excited' to go back!

This practice is friendly, clean and all equipment is completely high tech. Although I may be a little broke for the next few months, I'd rather have that than appalling teeth. Looking forward to my next few sessions with Dr Yudelman and beautiful looking teeth!

Dr. Yudelman is a fantastic dentist. I got him recommended after a bicycle accident and he repaired several of my front teeth, put in four crowns, and replaced all the old amalgam fillings. His high tech equipment and attention to detail is amazing. And the dental practice makes it so comfortable and nice to be at the dentist.Now that I don't live close anymore I travel all the way from Norway to go to this specific dentist! And I can really recommend it for others too - a holiday in Cape Town combined with a trip to the dentist. With the high tech equipment they have crowns can be replaced in a day and Optismile offer a range of other dental services too. Check out the website!

I had a pretty major dental emergency while on my honeymoon and had limited options for where to turn. Clifford and the staff at OptiSmile fit me in the same morning, and within a few hours my issue was resolved. Clifford was friendly and extremely helpful, and willing to go above and beyond. I would recommend for anyone with dental needs big and small to seek the expertise of Clifford and his practice.

I had a problem with toothache for over a year now, went to 3 different dentists with the first one telling me I need multiple fillings and the second saying I need braces then finally going to Dr. Ratan who fixed my toothache with such a simple procedure involving no fillings or braces. The friendliest staff who talk you through everything, they are there to help you and not just take your money like I have experienced with many other dentists. Highly highly recommended! Would go no place else

I have had extensive dental work done over the years and my experience with OptiSmile has left me feeling as if the field of Dentistry has moved into an entirely new age. OptiSmile is in the process of redoing over a decade's worth of dental work on my teeth and my experience has been wonderfully painless. Dr. Clifford Yudelman is 100% attentive to my needs as a patient and is by far the most enthusiastic dentist I have met to date. He seeks a level of perfection that I appreciate above all else. The staff are friendly, accommodating and quick to respond to enquiries. Knowing how hard it can be to find a good dentist, I would 100% recommend this practise to any of my friends and family. Bravo OptiSmile.

I was on vacation in Cape Town, with a friends wedding to attend and my bridge fell out! It was on the weekend and Dr Yudelman agreed to come in and refit it for me. He did an awesome job, and the bridge now feels like it did when it was originally fitted over 10 years ago.The service was professional, courteous and in super facilities - the best I have ever seen. I can't recommend Optismile and Dr Yudelman highly enough. Thank you 🙂

We will be back in April/May for more work and would highly recommend this team to anyone who a) wants the best dentistry available and b) the most cost effective treatment in particular if you are travelling from the USA. The cost savings more than cover the airfare and accommodation expenses. Plus you get to enjoy one of the most beautiful and friendly cities in the world

Everyone from Reception, the assistants, Dr Clifford Yudelman and his associate Dr Harris Smeyatski were incredibly accommodating and friendly while being professional. The facilities are almost space-age modern and clean, I was gawking half the time and was able to relax knowing that I was in good hands without a care in the world as my dental issues were taken care of. Well done OptiSmile!! I'll be back...

I was most impressed with OptiSmile and highly recommend them. Like most of us, I normally loathe going to the dentist but was amazed to leave feeling inspired by the whole experience.To start with the staff were warm and welcoming and enjoyed spending time in the newly designed waiting room, which one could easily work from if you had brought a laptop along with you. I also loved the modern interiors with stunning ocean views and was blown away by the ultra high tech equipment.With 30 years of experience under Dr Clifford Yudelman’s belt, I felt lucky to have him as my dentist! He is a true perfectionist and passionate about his practice. The entire visit was was very interesting and painless and I actually left learning a little more about my teeth.

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.

What a great experience going to the dentist - for a change!I knew without a doubt that I was having the best dental treatment available. Having a filling was pain free, trauma free, and within a few hours I was having lunch !Thank you for looking after me team OptiSmile

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

Overall experience - fantastic! Half the usual time in the chair - painless.I was one of those people that avoided "the dentist" for years. Luckily I found the OptiSmile practice. I was very nervous knowing how long I had avoided getting my teeth fixed. All my fears were dispelled by the friendly, non-judgemental staff. I was actively encouraged to vocalise any sensitivity during the procedures, Each niggle was attended to with immediate empathy - my absolute comfort was top priority. Very soon I was able to relax and enjoy the incredible view from the dentist chair.I also discovered that dentistry has moved far beyond the times when injections and fillings were painful.High tech equipment ensured that instead of spending weeks waiting for crowns to be made, my old ugly amalgam fillings and old fashioned crowns were replaced in one sitting; resulting in half the number of injections and time in the chair. I highly recommend this practice. Having a healthy smile is incredibly liberating!!!!!!!! Try them now for an instant face rejuvenating, smile-make-over.
