Our practice Camps Bay Dental Studio consists of myself, Dr Brogneri, specialized in implants and family dentistry, and a plastic surgeon. We have a strong regular client basis of over 3000 patients & over 6000 patients on our books, which is growing daily at an average of 50 patients a month, purely by word of mouth both locally and abroad. Approximately 20% of our patients are from the U.K. and north European countries, who return to S.A. on a yearly basis for their routine dental check-up and any treatment which needs to be done.
We pride ourselves on providing first-world dentistry using the latest technology and equipment amidst a friendly and caring environment. From the paediatric side: We work as a team with an ENT, a paediatrician, a child psychologist, a speech & hearing therapist and an occupational therapist. Our approach is holistic and non-invasive, focusing on behaviour management and building of a strong relationship built on trust. From the aesthetic side: We work as a team with my partner Dr Brogneri, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, beauty and health spas, beauticians and modeling agencies. We do dental make-overs and restoration of function and aesthetics. I have done over 300 whitening procedures with 99% patient satisfaction.
My Motto: We can do no great things, Only small things with great love -Mother Teresa
Leisure Activities: As mentioned, I write for a local newspaper for the last 8 years. The topics of my articles are child-rearing and motivational/inspirational. (see section: A Touch of Inspiration) I have also done a course on drug-counseling and have done one-on- one counseling sessions as well as weekly, group Life-Skills workshops with recovering addicts. I have also been interviewed by a journalist from the Oprah magazine and live on radio, regarding treating patients using ozone therapy.
Leisure Activities cont. I am an avid reader, particularly psychology, life-skills, and self- improvement Personal fitness: I have danced ballet, modern and acrobatics since I was 5 years old. I try to swim or gym at least one hour daily, and believe that we are what we eat I love spending time with my 9 year old daughter who has taught me as much, and if not more, than I have tried to teach her I believe I am an optimist who always looks for the lesson to be learnt, isnt that the reason we are here?
I hope this gives you a better idea of who I am and what I am about. Please feel free to ask if you require further, more detailed and specific information.
