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.

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.
