Dr de Villiers is a qualified Prosthodontist. He completed his dental degree at the University of Pretoria in 1984 and his 4 year specialist degree at the University of Pretoria in 1994. He has been in private practice since 1995.
He is a past President of the Academy of Prosthodontics of South Africa (APSA) and is currently a member of APSA.
He has extensive experience in the field of crown and bridge work and has a special interest in Implant Dentistry.
He is passionately committed to using only those techniques for tooth restorations that minimize the damage to existing tooth structure and dental nerve vitability instead of conventional prosthodontic treatment techniques that are very destructive and damaging to the teeth (e.g crown preparation).
The techniques he uses include the use of adhesive dentistry / bonding and composite resins restorations and also incorporate the use of bio-active materials, which maximize the ability of the tooth structure and the dental nerves to repair and revitalise themselves. The life expectancy of teeth restored in such a way increases dramatically when compared to that of teeth that have been treated with crowns.
