So happy with my new perfect, white teethMadelein, South Africa, 11 02 20

I have been to many dentists but never came across someone as good as Dr Adé Meyer. I had 6 crowns done 5 years ago which were all leaking. I didn't want to go back to my previous dentist, was worried I would have the same problem again. I saw the great reviews Dr Adé got and made an appointment. I was really impressed with her and her team. A week later I was there at 9:00 and left at 16:00 with 8 new crowns which are perfect! I decided to do an extra 2. I can highly recommend Dr. Adé! So happy with my new perfect, white teeth!
