"I was pleased to have received such quality care and service"
100%Reviewed 09 May 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Cosmetic Dentist Consultation
I was pleased to have received such quality care and service. My recommendation goes without saying and is completely unconditional.

The price here is a little steep but if you can bear with that then you should definitely give them a chance. The clinic was very clean and modern looking, the staff were very friendly and I was pleased with the overall presentation of the clinic. The reception area does require a little improvement though.

"I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne is"
100%Reviewed 01 Dec 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne is. I went to him for just a consultation and in just 2 days I had already started treatment. I was a bit shy and embarrassed because the work that needed to be done on my teeth was extensive but both him and his team made me feel so calm and comfortable. I am so happy I went to him, he is very knowledgeable and gave me the most information than I ever got on my teeth. Most importantly he is kind. I would recommend him to anyone.

"I was really blown away by his professionalism"
100%Reviewed 16 Mar 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Crowns
I had an appointment for implant treatment and because I have had so much bad luck with dentists before I was so apprehensive and was expecting the worst, but I must just say WOW! Dr Johan was awesome, he made me feel so comfortable and listened to what I needed. He didn't rush the appointment and explained the procedure so thoroughly that I now know what I can get done and what is possible. I was really blown away by his professionalism and how he took the time to explain everything to me. The cost was much less than I expected and I look forward to finally getting my treatment done.

The staff was great. There was a slight problem with my appointment scheduling, but nothing major and honestly I have rarely met such nice people, they even watched my baby while I was busy with the dr!!!!!!!! And they one of the receptionist mare her asleep for me! I am so nlown away by this clinic. I am so glad I went there and I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking of getting dental treatment done.

"I highly recommend his services to anyone"
100%Reviewed 09 Oct 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I can’t believe it is almost a year ago when I started my dental implantology procedure with Dr.Hartshorne. I am ecstatically pleased with the end result. My sister is always staring at my mouth – she cannot believe it –it looks unbelievably like my natural teeth! I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a professional with in depth knowledge on dental implantology. He surely is a true professional with a kindred spirit. My journey started with an enquiry to him regarding replacing 4 front missing teeth. I had a consultation with him and after listening to him and checking up on his credentials I was beyond pleased. the procedure was not painful at all. I now wonder why I had not done it earlier on in my life. Aesthetic Dentistry is like planning to build your dream home. (In this case, the dream smile).
The dental assessment is the most important part. From there onwards you can make an informed decision to do it/not/financially plan towards doing it. Surely, cosmetic procedures are not cheap but hey it is still much cheaper in SA than in other countries. The end result is the most pleasing of all. People cannot believe the natural look. I frequently have been commented on my "beautiful teeth" and walk away with a grin on my face. Doctor Hartshorne, I still cannot believe the unbelievable work that you have done. To me this process was so simple, but I’m sure it was not – bearing in mind the 10 years since the teeth has been missing and the amount of bone loss/degeneration, the complexity of placing the implant, etc. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for me. I really appreciate it!
