Dental Services

Dr. Auke van der Meulen and Dr. Karen Kromhout both practiced in the United Kingdom as dentists, before returning to South Africa about 17 years ago. We also have a dental practice, MySmile Dental Studio – Lydenburg. This practice is well established since 1999. We strive to make your experience at the dentist as pleasant as possible. With regular visits for a check-up and cleaning, we can minimize any risk of serious dental problems!

Healthy, beautiful teeth are an asset and immediately make the face more attractive. They provide us with self-confidence and improve our quality of life. They also have an important effect on our diet, health, and overall well-being. Through a holistic approach, we can prevent oral disease and maintain your oral health and well-being.
