We are a family practice situated in the suburban area of Durban North, close to shops and restaurants with plenty of on-site parking.


The success of our practice has been built on always providing a high standard of treatment in a friendly and caring environment. We are continually updating our techniques, materials and equipment to provide our patients with the best treatment available. Sterility is of great importance and we have a dedicated sterilisation area and staff member to avoid cross-contamination of any infection.

We pride ourselves in treating every patient with honesty and integrity.
