Meet Our Team

Lead Dentist

Dr Johan Louw

Dr Johan Louw graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1982.

Dr Louw’s main professional gaol is to have happy patients walk out of the practice. He enjoys the satisfaction of a job well performed and the daily interactions with his patients.

Outside of the practice, Dr Louw enjoys the outdoors especially archery, cycling, motor biking and hunting. His favourite place to be is in the bush and he can’t live without his family and his dogs!
