Getting to know YOU

We love people, and your first appointment is an opportunity for us to get to know you, and you us. Understanding where you are in your dental journey and how our knowledge and skills can help you achieve your goal for your smile.

Following the SLOWDENTISTRY principals, we go out of our way to explain the treatment options available to you, so that you can make a decision on your own dental health that suits you. Meeting you where you are.

Patient stories

Dr Smith and her team are excellent job at putting one at ease. The initial consultation was great, with Dr Smith taking me through the work to be done and setting out treatment options clearly. They are meticulous and the quality of work done is absolutely amazing, with no pain and minimal discomfort while working on my teeth. My dealings with each person at the practice, from front office to the dental experts, have been a pleasure.

I am absolutely thrilled with my outcome. Everyone was so professional, explained everything to me and the result is brilliant... There is a strict protocol for COVID-19 and I felt protected throughout the process

Janice Ludlam

Dr Jean van Lierop did a cosmetic makeover of my front teeth using bonding. He was brilliant and my results were absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t be happier. Would highly recommend him for any general/cosmetic dentistry.

Slow Dentistry

Because we know that our patients appreciate the Excellence we can achieve when we have enough time to do what we need to, we are one of the first South African dental practices to join the Slow Dentistry Global Network. By doing so, we have committed to the four pillars of Slow Dentistry: investing more time in each patient, focusing on hygiene, ensuring that the patient can follow the treatment steps and to take care of their general well-being. We achieve this by following a thorough approach, with emphasis on the patient and the quality of their care.

What to expect at your first visit.

After making an appointment with one of our dedicated doctors, you will receive a welcome email sharing some valuable information about us and your first visit. You will have the option of completing your new patient form online via our website or coming in 15 mins before your appointment to complete at our practice. Easy directions to our office and available parking will be communicated with you or you could download our directions here.

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays and digital photographs of your teeth and mouth. The doctor will then discuss your X-rays and photos, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.

We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 60 minutes.

Please bring to your first appointment:

  • Insurance information
  • List of current medications and medical conditions
  • X-rays taken in the last 6 months (if available)

Bring your smile, but also remember to complete your patient information form for your first appointment.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

We recommend visiting a dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
