Our Team

At The Bosham Clinic our team of experienced dentists, nurses and receptionists are always friendly, reassuring and efficient, giving you the very best advice and treatment possible.


Johan’s focus on high quality dentistry, his impeccable attention to detail and the care he takes to ensure patient comfort mean you are in the safest of hands. A forward thinking clinician, he established The Bosham Clinic in 2007 and has promoted a collaborative environment where colleagues share knowledge and operate as a close-knit team. Fuelled by a passion for improvement, he relocated the clinic to the current modern premises and continued to expand the practice. Since qualifying at Pretoria University in 1998 Johan’s postgraduate training has spanned many areas of general dentistry as well as restorative work and implant placement.

Outside dentistry he is a family man with a keen interest in design and manufacturing, while trying to stay fit by means of various outdoor activities.

After some time out in South Africa, he is now back at the practice doing what he does best.
