We only provide dental implants and treat gum disease. That is specifically what we have been trained to do.
André Hattingh is a periodontist who dedicates his practice to the replacement of teeth with dental implants and to the treatment of gum disease (periodontitis).
Periodontists are dentists that have undertaken additional training (4 year Masters degree in our case) in the treatment of gum disease and (in our case) the provision of dental implants. This training allows them to register as a specialist in their field (periodontology/periodontics) with the General Dental Council.
Formal training in a specific field enhances the knowledge and skills of a clinician. Working within a dedicated field on a daily basis greatly improves and develops a clinician's experience and practical application of complex surgical procedures.
Dear Mr Hattingh, Thank you so much for seeing and treating Heather successfully. I just wanted to say that I don’t think I have had a patient assessed and treated so thoroughly and I am truly amazed by your results. You truly are the most impressive periodontologist I have ever encountered, so thank you again. Best wishes
