Dr Alfred M. Dippenaar – Specialist Orthodontist in Klerksdorp & Potchefstroom
“Realising our motto: ‘Creating smiles that change lives’ is what makes my career in Orthodontics so rewarding” says Dr Dippenaar.
In addition to Dr Dippenaar’s vast clinical experience as general dentist (14 years), his highly specialised training enables him to diagnose accurately and treat efficiently and effectively, even the most challenging and complex mal-occlusions.
Dr Dippenaar obtained a BChD-degree (1985, University of Pretoria) and practiced as general dentist until 1999. While in general private practice he obtained a Masters’ Degree in Dental Sciences (UP). Patient involvement regarding their own dental health inspired him to compile and publish a dental procedural atlas that explains and illustrates most general dental procedures: Teeth an Owner’s Manual. This publication was distributed worldwide, used in many practices to explain procedures and widely utilised as a dental educational tool.
To qualify as a Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Dippenaar attended the 4-year fulltime speciality program at the University of Pretoria from 2000 to 2003 and obtained his Masters’ Degree in Orthodontics. He is also a Fellow of the College of Dentistry of South Africa (Orthodontics) by reason of academic and professional attainments. Dr Dippenaar has been practicing in Klerksdorp and Potchefstroom as Specialist Orthodontist since 2003.
Dr Dippenaar’s extensive academic record and clinical experience enables him to effectively diagnose and propose the optimum orthodontic treatment plan for every patient’s specific need.
“I take pride in the quality of care and treatment that we offer our patients. Together we look forward to the treatment outcome of every individual patient and await the desired, beautiful smile that changes lives!” concludes Dr Dippenaar.
