MEET THE TEAM

EDP Norfolk - - Promotion -

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.
