From The Dentist’s Mouth – Dr Jean Strydom

Dr Jean Strydom has recently joined the Lumino Nelson team bringing his experience in implantology and restorative dentistry.

What made you decide to get into dentistry as a career?

Being in the privileged position to enhance my patient's health and making an emotional difference through modern dentistry is what drives me.

How long have you been practising dentistry?

I've been practising for over 22 years now.

Tell us about your career background.

After graduating from the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa) I spent five and a half years working in the UK and exploring Europe. I returned to South Africa and started my private practice in 2004.

What is your most memorable case to date?

A complex multidisciplinary approach resulted in a life-changing experience for my patient that I will always remember.

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing the absolute joy and positive change that digital dentistry brings to my patients.

What is the main piece of advice you give your patients?

Your teeth should last you a lifetime - treasure nature's gift!

Where would we find you outside of the practice?

Perusing classic car and motorbike collections and the local adventure gear shop!
