Bernard has been practising as a dentist for over 30 years, growing his own practice in South Africa from a bare-bones one man operation to a five-dentist practice over the years.
Having been pleasantly surprised by a positive dentist experience as a child, Bernard became interested in exploring pain-free dentistry and guiding people past their preconceived fears and ideas about dental work.
His particular passion is providing a family dentist practice experience, helping the whole family from child to elder, and building relationships which leave patients feeling both cared for and cared about.
Bernard was initially drawn to work with the True Alignment team in Cambridge thanks to their holistic approach to dentistry, believing that good oral health goes far beyond straightening teeth and ties into alignment issues throughout the body.
He also resonates strongly with True Alignment’s twin core values: Empathy and Technology. Speaking to the first principle, Bernard said that he believed empathy was the most important aspect of his practice.
