I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Amazing staff.

I went in with badly damaged/ broken teeth, from ongoing stress and grinding, and on a really tight budget. I was also pretty traumatised after a difficult life challenge and the staff were were gentle, kind, supportive and helpful.

Dr Parker also gave me a discount and squeezed an additional bit of work on a broken front tooth, which was causing me some embarrassment, because in her words, "She wanted me to feel better."

I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent!

Thank you to all at Kromboom Dental Center.

I could definitely tell there was a difference

2 50 Laser Teeth Whitening

I wasn't entirely satisfied with the end result of the treatment I received, and since then I have actually bought another teeth whitening tooth paste and kit. After the treatment, I could definitely tell that there was a difference in the shade of white on my teeth, but that it wasn't that many shades whiter.

I also found the mouthpiece that was used on me at the clinic was not very comfortable. In fact, I suggested to the doctor afterward that she should maybe look into getting or using mouthpieces that were more flexible and could accommodate different shaped mouths. I would say that I found the entire procedure quite painful, and I made the staff aware of this. There were moments of discomfort so severe that I thought that I would just ask that the treatment end and that I would be happy to pay for the full treatment anyway because I'm not really one to complain. It was just very painful.

The reason I chose to go to the clinic was that I figured that the more expensive the treatment the better the result would be. The treatment cost R4000. I wanted to avoid going in for another round of treatment a year later because I opted for a less expensive procedure. I found the clinic and decided to go for the procedure after reading review on sites I googled which was from Ireland.

The doctor did indicate that the results could not be guaranteed and that the results would not be permanent. Having said that, my teeth are whiter - but not quite R4000 lighter. I actually feel quite guilty for spending that amount of money.

Hi Abby!! That's not what we like to see. With teeth whitening some people get amazing results, some get very little results. Our Oral Hygienists are trained to explain that results vary from patient to patient and can go from 1 shade lighter in some patients to 4 shades lighter in others. In the former cases we advise the take home kit as well which allows you to further whiten your teeth at home or whenever you feel you need a top up. Thank you for your feedback about the lip and cheek retractors which can be uncomfortable . We'll be sure to pass it along to our team.

An artist who takes pride in a good job

Dental Crowns • Paid: R900

Dr Nazier Natha is not just a dentist. He's an artist who takes pride in doing a good job. I had a core build up with prefabricated posts which meant that I could throw away a denture which I hated. The experience was painless. Dr Natha and his assistant are very kind and I would definitely recommend him.

My family and I have used this dental surgery for many years and we have always been treated with respect.

Treated by: Dr Nazier Natha

We were so happy to hear that Dr. Natha provided you with excellent service. We will be sure to share your feedback with him, and the entire team. They love knowing that patients appreciate their service.

The procedure was completely painless

5 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction • Paid: R2000

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.

I will definitely recommend them

5 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction

I went for a second opinion on getting my wisdom teeth removed.
2 impacted and 2 regular.
Check-in was very friendly, I didn't wait longer than the appointment scheduled time and the dentist were also very friendly. They explained in an easy to follow manner and gave me all the options I had to move forward along with booklets to read at home.

I will definitely recommend them.

Hi Andrea, Thank you for much for such great review and recommendation! We work hard to deliver great dentistry in the most comfortable environment, and I am happy to see that reflected in your last visit.

I no longer cry at the thought of having work done

Dentist Consultation

Due to a childhood of bad experience’s I was very anxious about attending the dentist. I have changed my perception and now I no longer cry at the thought of having work done. Dr Natha's and Luqmaan's warm and comforting personality makes me feel at ease, and their precise and careful dentistry never leaves me in pain or worry

.

Treated by: Dr Natha & Luqmaan

We are thrilled that you loved the treatment Dr. Natha and Luqmaan gave you! Sometimes, it can be a bit scary to go to the dentist, but you trusted Kromboom Dental Centre and we are so grateful for that. Thank you

My smile still looks top notch.

4.5 50 Dental Bonding • Paid: R1800

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.

Wow! We are so blown away by your review. It made our day here at Kromboom Dental Centre

My wisdom removals was a breeze

4.5 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction

I booked myself for a general checkup by the dentist, this was my first trip to the dentist in a few years. I was received by Dr.Khan who then advised that i would need to have my wisdom teeth removed.

Overall experience from the receptionist right through to Dr Nazier Natha and Luqmaan was excellent. Family and friends made a big deal about having wisdoms removed and that i should rather do it in theatre, but after my consultation with Dr. Natha he assured me that i was in good hands. My wisdom removals was a breeze, Dr. Natha made me feel totally comfortable as he knew i was a bit concerned. Thank you Kromboom Dental

Should have costed thousands, but it didn't

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Root canal and others.
Lets just put it this way, gentle, patient, thorough. They won't continue working on you until they are 100% sure that you are ok to proceed.
Should have costed thousands, but it didn't.
You have to go for yourself to experience these peoples caring nature.

I was referred to the clinic by my colleague, after my daughter had an awful dental experience at the hands of a dental surgeon who clearly was only out to make as much money as he possibly could. She suffered unbearably for months with pain and infections (3 to 4 visits to same dentist and thousands of rands later) after a "root canal" which this dentist supposedly did (but found out later he didn't).
I eventually took her to Kromboom dental clinic. Wow! from the moment you walk into the door you are made to feel at ease. These people actually care about their patients - even though it's called a clinic, there is nothing "coldly clinical" about them. They are not just knowledgeable and super efficient, they are also kind and friendly.
Dr Nazier Natha - kudos to you sir. You have changed my opinion of dentists. You have gone above and beyond to help Amy. she is now pain free and has no problems. Thank you, thank you, thank you and God bless you.

Warm regards
Naomi
