Rating from 22 Reviews I’d definitely visit them againAnonymous, Malmesbury, 17 Apr 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.

I came to the clinic as they were able to offer me the best price for the treatment I was looking for. The clinic itself is beautiful, professional, clean and comfortable. I absolutely got good value from my treatment here, there were additional add ons to the prices, but I was made fully aware of all of these and was happy to pay. I've booked a follow up appointment in the new year. Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinic.

Rating from 14 Reviews My smile still looks top notch.Mel, Cape Town, 06 Jun 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.
