He has set high standards in preventative dental care, i.e. preventing dental disease such as dental caries (decay), periodontal (gum) disease and loss of teeth due to attrition and abrasion.

He recently moved his practice to a modern high-class complex attached to the prestigious Morningside Clinic in Sandton, Johannesburg.
