He has worked in private practice in Port Elizabeth since 2007.
From 2008 to 2009 he had a private practice in Kareedouw which went belly-up.
He worked for Dentists at Health from 2009 to 2012 and after that was in private practice until 2018.
In 2019 he became a partner at Dentists at Health Walmer.
His main focuses of practice are Implant Dentistry and Digital Workflow Aesthetic Dentistry.
His passion outside of clinical excellence is sharing his journey where he can help with respect to mistakes he made, which are easily avoided with some guidance. He is inspired to help the young dentist where he can with regard to practice management solutions and general problem-solving. He and Dr Evert Burger are in the process of launching a podcast specifically for this purpose.
'Strong body, strong mind' is his motto. He keeps fit by doing Crossfit and bodyboarding when the waves are good. He is married to Stephnie who is a dietitian; they have 3 children that give purpose to all these endeavours.
