We Care About Our Emalahleni Community

Smilez Dental Surgery cares about the oral health needs of everyone… that’s why we’ve made as much effort as possible to reach out to our community. Our oral health education campaigns have been running since the practice was founded. We have delivered oral health education, instructions, demonstration, and dental screening to children in various schools in Witbank. For the children requiring further attention; we gave them letters for their parents recommending that they be taken to the nearest dentist or hospital.

Our initiative also offers jobs to the local community, whereby people are hired to help with the project. Besides working with Umsobomvu Youth Development Agency in the Witbank area since year 2010; we’ve also been on several shows on Emalahleni FM, and Radio Kragbone. Our presentations covered the following topics; basic things you need to know about dentistry, diseases related to dentistry, good dental habits, and career guidance.

Students and young learners are close to our heart at Smilez Dental Surgery. We are proud to have had the opportunity to visit a lot of schools in Witbank; Pat May – Lollipop Tasbet, Little Smurfs, Duvha park nursery, Bimbo Pre-school, Anchor In Knowledge Preschool, Duvha Park Primary, Greendale Combined School, Kopanong High school, Blackhill Schoongezicht Primary School and Pine Ridge Secondary School. Our practice is open to all current and future dentistry students for career guidance and advice.

We are also available for presentations; companies and workplaces can contact us to come and talk about dental health practices. In most cases, oral health awareness is reserved for children in schools... this is how we at Smilez Dental Surgery are balancing things and filling the gap - by making campaigns that target older working demographics.
