Dr Corne Smith
PDD (Aesthetic dentistry) (Orthodontics)
Dr Corne Smith graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2005. Originally from Gauteng, she always planned to move to beautiful Cape Town and started her private practice in Newlands in 2012.
During her time as an associate dentist, Dr Corne had an interest in aesthetic dentistry from the start and gained experience in CAD-CAM and minimally invasive reconstructive techniques since 2006. She did a post-graduate diploma in Aesthetic dentistry through the University of Western Cape, and a 2-year diploma in Digital Orthodontics through McGann Postgraduate School of Dentistry (USA).
Her special interest has since developed into focusing mainly on the combination of orthodontics and minimally invasive restorative techniques to restore both function and aesthetics conservatively. This is why Dr Corne Smith was one of the very first registered Invisalign providers in South Africa and is still one of the very few.
Being a passionate dentist, Corne has always been involved in several dental associations, and now serves on the Executive Committee of the South African Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry (SAAAD). She is also a member of ITI (International Team on Implantology), South African Academy of Computerised Dentistry (SAACD), SADA (South African Dental Association) and is registered with the HPCSA (Health Professions Council of South Africa).
She is one of the founders of The Bridge Program, training dentists and equipping them with the best clinical skills as well as the business aspects of dentistry. She has lectured all around the country spreading her passion for patients, revolutionary procedures and promoting oral health care.
Dr Corne also has an interest in the business side of dentistry and has grown her own business from a small start-up to successful practice in 6 years; employing two associate dentists, and also acquiring another practice in 2017.
