Being an avid sportsman and nature enthusiast, Dr Thinus van Niekerk spends his time away from the surgery either in search of the perfect single track, scuba diving the reefs on the north coast, or planning his next trip into Africa. As a proud Tuks graduate, a devoted Sharks and Springbok Rugby supporter, a believer of faith and a rooted South African, Dr Thinus van Niekerk aims to redefine the dental experience as modern, exciting and life-changing. With an ethos to continually ‘educate to prevent’ and ‘treat to protect’ Dr van Niekerk passionately promotes the profession by changing age-old perceptions.

Dr van Niekerk graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2008 and went on to do his community service in the Ugu District, southern Kwa-Zulu Natal, in 2009. In 2010 he moved to Pietermaritzburg and held a position at Medicross Hayfields before accepting a private practice position at Nr 1 Riverton Road in January of 2011. Dr van Niekerk completed his expert on dermal filler training course at the University of Pretoria and he continues to keep abreast of the latest products and treatments that promotes anti-ageing and facial aesthetics. It was also during this time that Dr van Niekerk developed his love for oral surgery with a special interest in Implantology. He was fortunate to work alongside Prof Dr D Buser and Prof Dr U Belser at the University of Bern, Switzerland, during a course on Advanced Aesthetic Implantology Techniques. In January 2012 Dr van Niekerk took an obedient leap of faith as he relocated to Ballito, a fast-growing town situated on the north coast of South Africa. Here, him and Dr Zak Schabort joined forces to put the second Cosmetic and Dental Emporium on the map. The practice immediately set a new standard in efficient workflow by implementing the latest App-based technology and offering patients world-class aesthetic dentistry. In 2012 Dr van Niekerk had a further opportunity to develop his skills in oral micro-surgery when he attended a Master Course in Implantology led by Dr B.E. Pjetursson in Reykjavik, Iceland. In 2013 he also received his Diploma in Implantology from the University of Pretoria, a course which was led by Prof A van Zyl and recognized by both the ITI and the EAO.

With support from Dr JC Krynauw in Ballito, coupled with a timely opportunity in Umhlanga, it allowed for the development of the third Cosmetic and Dental Emporium in 2014. In 2015 they extended their presence into Gauteng and opened a beautiful practice in The Riverside Shopping Centre, Bryanston. The group now consists of 5 practices and continues to strive towards excellence in aesthetics, both in the way they treat patients, and in the way they empower and equip fellow dentists and doctors. By applying ethical and sustainable principles that are further supported by current research, they provide aesthetically driven solutions to just about any dental and facial aesthetics concern.

LIV Village is one of South Africa’s greatest success stories. Following a model set by the world-famous Watoto Village in Uganda, they offer sanctuary, hope and restoration to over 200 children’s lives. Dr van Niekerk has been serving as Director of Dentistry at LIV Village since 2012. To date, they have screened and treated more than 200 vulnerable and orphaned children from the village. Furthermore, the non-profit program known as LIV Smiles, has attracted support as far as Germany when dental equipment giant Sirona donated a dental treatment centre. They have also partnered with Reinor, Istrodent and Wright-Milners. In 2015 Dr van Niekerk and his wife Lee exchanged their home in Salt Rock for a life on the village. Here, they now raise their first daughter Anah, and continue to serve this community.
