"The experience so far is great"
5 50Reviewed 23 Jul 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
So far I can only praise Dr Hartshorne for his work so far. This is a journey for me. I have been treated by him for about 8 months for 3 dental implants and the experience so far is great. I know this is expensive, however, I have trust in Dr Hartshorne ability and work.

Happy with service so far.

"They were good. Everything was done well"

Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning,Restorative Dentist Consultation
A friend of mine told me about this dentist and then I went to Google and found them. My first appointment was to fix a broken front tooth, and I had a cleaning the second time around.

The clinic was okay, much like every other dental practice. They were good. Everything was done well. I’d like to go back for teeth whitening as well as braces. I had to travel to get to the clinic the first time, but I’m based in Cape Town now.

"I’d definitely visit them again"

Treatment Received: Dentures
I saw Dr Johan on a tv programme for the first time. He looked like a nice guy, so I thought I’d approach him. The doctor made me a set of excellent dentures. No aftercare or follow-ups were needed.

The staff were highly professional, and the service, top class. I’d definitely visit them again. The doctor sent me a quote before the appointment. The dentures were worth the money.

"I’m happy with the end result and didn’t have to go back for follow-ups"
3.5 50Reviewed 22 Feb 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Teeth Whitening
It was so easy to book an appointment with Dr. Johan and his location was also great. I had a teeth whitening treatment done here. The price was quite expensive, but there aren’t many alternative clinics in the area I live.

I was very satisfied with the clinic when I arrived. I’m happy with the end result and didn’t have to go back for follow-ups. Everything - service, treatment, clinic, staff - was fine.

"I was pleased to have received such quality care and service"
5 50Reviewed 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"
5 50Reviewed 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.
