Our team would like to welcome you to our family practice. We are a team of super passionate people who enjoy what we do. Scroll down to get to know us a little better.
Our company started in June 2011 by Dr. Gabriel Pereira, our family dentist. Coming from the largest privately owned dental practice in South Africa, Dr. Pereira was set on doing things a little differently. No longer would you, our patient, be just a surname on our list, but rather a new member of our greater family.
“Taking the Time to Care” is something that we take very seriously at our practice. We strive to treat the young and the young at heart with the care and patients that they deserve. Overcoming your fears and anxieties can be done in a calm and pleasant manner. We, at The Family Dentist, look forward to welcoming you to be part of our growing family.
