It really was a pleasant & painless experienceLeeAnne, South Africa, 21 07 23

I had my wisdom tooth extracted yesterday, and believe me when I say I was nervous and anxious as I haven't had a dental procedure done in years. Dr Moosa & Dr Ismail & team made me feel so much at ease. Dr Ismail is amazing at what he does the way he explains everything and talks one through the process. Before I knew it my tooth was out and I didn't feel a thing, I couldn't believe it. It really was a pleasant & painless experience. Thank you Dr Moosa & Dr Ismail & team for what you have done for me. I'll never forget it...you guys are truly amazing.

He is extremely professional and caringLuka, Slovenia, 09 01 24

I visited Dr Hartshorne twice during my stay in South Africa. Choosing a dentist while you're travelling is no fun but I can say I couldn't have wished for a better dentist. He is extremely professional and caring. Had it not for him, my trip would have probably been ruined. I highly recommend Dr Hartshorne and thank him for his time, effort, patience and care.

I am beyond pleased with my outcomeChristopher, South Africa, 17 01 24

WOW, Dr Jay personally answered my call when i phoned in over festive period looking for a dentist for some relief. He was busy with an emergency procedure but told me to come on through and he will assist. Not even a month later and a tooth that's given me endless problems and i was referred for surgical removement previously has been removed, painlessly i might add. I have had a root canal and the most functional and beautiful bridge was made and fitted for me. The man's a cross between an artist and a master but oh so humble and reassuring every step of the way. I am beyond pleased with my outcome, the timeframe, the advice and explanations as well as the overall service. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
