Hi, I’m Shaahir. I am formerly from Kwa-Zulu Natal, I qualified in Dentistry at the University of the Western Cape, subsequently completing community service in the Free State before returning to the beautiful city of Cape Town.
I completed a post-graduate Diploma in Aesthetic Dentistry and various courses ranging from aesthetics and minor oral surgery to digital dentistry. I am actively involved in non-profit community dentistry, treating patients from 42 beneficiaries in and around Cape Town monthly, generally involving treatment under IV sedation for the disabled, underprivileged and those most in need. I pride myself on being easily approachable, engaging, patient and gentle whilst treating my patients with passion, dignity and pure compassion. Outside dentistry, I am a franchise owner of nano ceramic protective coatings across the automotive, aviation, marine, industrial and home industries. My hobbies include travel, music, good food, great company, and occasionally a bit of a speed freak! Joining Optismile, a world-class facility in South Africa’s most stunning city, is an honour and privilege. The team at Optismile is sure to leave you with an experience like no other!
