I’d definitely visit them againAnonymous, Malmesbury, 17 04 18

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.

My smile still looks top notch.Mel, Cape Town, 06 06 16

I went for dental bonding to close a gap. Everything was clearly explained and all the options were given to me. It was successfully done. No, hassles. My smile still looks top notch. The reason I chose it because it was close to home and there was no consultation fee. First stepping inside the building I was surprised by how busy it was, which told me that people trusted this place. I was also happy that all the latest dental procedures are available here. The dentist who took care of me was friendly and professional. Thanks, KDC. Awesome work.
