SLOWDENTISTRY

Because we know that our patients appreciate the Excellence we can achieve when we have enough time to do what we need to, we are one of the first South African dental practices to join the Slow Dentistry Global Network. By doing so, we have committed to the four pillars of Slow Dentistry: investing more time in each patient, focusing on hygiene, ensuring that the patient can follow the treatment steps and to take care of their general well-being. We achieve this by following a thorough approach, with emphasis on the patient and the quality of their care.
