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.
