MEET THE TEAM
DR ROBBIE DE VILLIERS
Lead dentist Robbie’s special area of interest and expertise is dental implants. He received his master’s degree in implant surgery from the University of Warwick.
“Implants are one of the biggest breakthroughs in modern dentistry,” says Robbie. “I have seen the huge difference they make to people with loose teeth, unstable dentures or gaps.”
Implants are offered at both Treetops Dental Surgery and Grovefield Dental Surgery.
DR ROEL BESTER
Roel has been a dentist in Norwich for 18 years, the last 10 of them working with Robbie at Treetops Dental Practice. “We pride ourselves on being a family dentist – we can treat everyone from grandparents to children,” says Roel.
With dentistry changing rapidly, the team at Treetops and Grovefield are constantly updating their training to ensure that their patients benefit from the latest techniques.
“Dentistry today is completely different from when I started out in the 80s,” says Roel. “It’s wonderful what we can do for patients, such as conscious sedation and implants.”
DR DANIEL THERON
Daniel joined the team at Treetops Dental Practice six months ago, having previously worked as a dentist in West Sussex and Johannesburg.
“We put a real emphasis on preventative treatment,” says Daniel. “We encourage patients to have regular check ups to pick up any problems with their teeth and gums in the early stages to make sure they don’t become a bigger problem.”
DR NICO DE LANGE
Inspired by the dentist who treated him when he was growing up, Nico went on to study dentistry at the University of Stellenbosch, graduating in the same year as Robbie. He came to Norfolk in 1998 and has been at Grovefield Dental Surgery at North Walsham since 2006.
“Dental health is an important part of a person’s overall health and our ethos is to offer good quality dentistry to patients and to help them [to maintain that] as much as we can,” says Nico.
