Welcome to MySmile Dental Studio.

MySmile Dental Studio is a dental practice in White River offering the full range of dental services. Our practice is located in the tranquil atmosphere of the Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre, White River, South Africa, with dentists dr Auke van der Meulen and dr Karen Kromhout.

Dr Auke van der Meulen and Dr Karen Kromhout both practised in the United Kingdom as dentists, before returning to South Africa about 17 years ago. We also have a dental practice, Lydenburg Dental Centre, in Lydenburg. This practice is well established since 1999. We strive to make your experience at the dentist as pleasant as possible. With regular visits for a check-up and cleaning we can minimise any risk of serious dental problems!

Healthy, beautiful teeth are an asset and immediately make the face more attractive. They provide us with self-confidence and improve our quality of life. They also have an important effect on our diet, health and overall wellbeing. Through a holistic approach we can prevent oral disease and maintain your oral health and wellbeing.

Unfortunately through unhealthy eating habits, poor oral hygiene, genetic anomalies, trauma, stress and ageing we can lose the beautiful smile we were born with. Through the use of modern techniques and equipment, safe and scientifically proven materials and honed skills, we try to restore what nature gave you as well as possible. We only use materials that are from reputable international companies and have been scientifically proven to be safe and reliable.

After an initial full examination of your mouth we will present you with the various treatment options.


Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

Cavities are treated by removing the decayed portion of the tooth and then filling the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed. Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

Sometimes people wonder whether there is a need to look after a child's first teeth since they fall out anyway. However, we all want healthy looking teeth as adults and that starts with having healthy teeth as children. Teaching your child proper oral care at a young age is an investment in his or her health that will pay lifelong dividends.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent and are installed directly into the jawbone. This means they rely on the jawbone itself to hold the new tooth root in place, unlike other tooth replacements that put additional stress on the surrounding teeth.

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles.
