"Following an accident where my face was quite badly injured I knew after an immediate phone call to Dirk that I was in safe hands. I had broken one of my teeth quite clearly and an X-ray showed I had in fact fractured my two front teeth as well. Dirk told me they would need to come out and be replaced by implants. This was devastating to hear and was the single most traumatic thing that has happened to me. The next six months treatment were going to be a tough and long journey but I couldnt have asked for a better person than Dirk and his fantastic team to help me through it all the way. Dirks knowledge, expertise and nature really comforted me and gave me the confidence I needed to make me know that I would be okay. Whilst I will always want MY teeth back, I can now smile the widest smile with my wonderful implants without even thinking about it. I can never thank Dirk or his team enough for what they did to help me."
"I was initially very nervous of having two front teeth extracted and replaced with implants. Dirk reassured me and I was kept fully informed of each step of the procedure. Both the surgery and the fitting of the dental implants went extremely well. I am very pleased with the end results."
"I have no hesitation in referring my patients to Dirk Slabbert for implant treatment. He has always been very approachable for help during the restorative stage if I needed help. My patients have been very pleased with the results achieved." - Dr Manny Makratzakis, The Whitehouse Dental Practice, Brighton
"It is a pleasure to give a recommendation to Dirk Slabbert. I have known Dirk for the last seven years and have referred numerous patients to him for various degrees of complex implant treatments. He has always been very keen to discuss cases with me and help me to restore the single ones. I hope to get more involved with the more complex cases in the future and know that I can always count on him to be there if the need arises." - Dr Dimitri Mantazis, The Carden Avenue Dental Practice, Brighton
