Alwyn graduated from the University of Stellenbosch/Western Cape with a B.Ch.D in 2004.  He went on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Implantology (Cum Laude) in 2007 and his M.Ch.D in Prosthodontics in 2012 at the University of the Western Cape.

In October 2008 he was appointed Registrar in Prosthodontics at the University of the Western Cape, a post he held until 2012 when he went into private practice.

Alwyn has been a member of ITI, APSA and has completed the CEREC advanced course.  He is currently a member of the South African Association of Computerised Dentistry and is registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

He has presented at various seminars and case study events over the years.

Dr Busi Mathibela graduated from the University of the Western Cape in 1997. She soon realized that her passion was in aesthetic dentistry.  After spending some time working in a fully private practice in the United Kingdom, she enrolled for a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry, which she completed in 2004.

She is currently in Private Practice in Sandton, Johannesburg with a special interest in aesthetic dentistry. In May 2011, she attended Dr. Galip Gurel's hands-on training course in Istanbul. The principles she learned have changed and enhanced the way she practices and plans her aesthetic cases. These skills are not just limited to major cases but can also be applied to minor restorative work.  

Music is her first love. She believes that there is synergy between how an orchestra plays and the teamwork required to achieve beautiful aesthetic work. It has perhaps been a natural progression that her passion and advent interest lies in this aspect of dentistry.

She has also attended numerous international congresses whose primary focus is esthetic dentistry. She is a member of Study Group 1, SAAAD and SADA.
