They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortableRobert, US, 03 10 22

4 years and Satisfied! Dr. Hartshorne is one in a Million.The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding. Undoubtedly the best dental-related experience I’ve ever had. From the first day I visited this office I’ve felt as though I’ve been cared for and treated in the best possible way. I had 5 Implants. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The result from my dental implants was great.. about 8 months later, one tooth seemed to be a bit lose, but he had warned me that it rarely ever happens, but if it does, feel free to come in, we'll take care of it, and he did. Also note that the office and operating rooms are incredibly clean. I also found it nice that they do everything from the consultation to the procedure at the same place. Modern Equipment in a nice facility with a doctor that knows his job was a game changer for me. The Money, was worth my Smile. Every visit was like visiting friends

The procedure was completely painlessWayne, South Africa, 23 01 17

Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extraction I was rolling around on the floor at 11:00 pm in excruciating pain and finally asked my wife to try make an after hours appointment. We met Dr Natha and his assistant, Luqmaan, at 1:30 am at the Kromboom Dental Centre. It turns out that I had to have one of my wisdom teeth extracted. The procedure was completely painless. I did not even need to take painkillers the next day. Dr Natha and his assistant were very friendly and also very professional. If you are not a fan of needles, blood, and anything generally "doctor" related, I highly recommend that you consider visiting Dr Natha.

Amazing, same day brand new teeth. The technology was mind-blowing. I was stunned for daysCarol, South Africa, 07 06 18

I had numerous procedures done. I thought I will not be able to chew. In only 2 afternoons the doctor did my whole upper jaw with bridges, crowns, laser and pulled a tooth. Extracted left behind bone from previous procedures. Amazing, same day brand new teeth. The technology was mind-blowing. I was stunned for days. From the receptionist, chair assistant and mouth hygienist just the best welcoming assistance and advice. All very friendly and helpful. They aim to assist and don't "bark". Dr. Jay is extremely professional and friendly, explain all the procedures patiently with the utmost love and respect for his profession. What a pleasure it was.
