Dr. James van der Westhuyzen

Dr. James van der Westhuyzen completed his B.Ch.D at University of Stellenbosch in 1990 after which he completed his one year Military Service in the Northern Cape. In 1991 he joined the Dental Practice of Dr. Thomas Brummer in Wynberg. He had the privilege of working with and learning from Dr. Brummer for the next 5 years, after which Dr. Brummer retired.

The Wynberg practice moved to Plumstead where Dr. van der Westhuyzen practiced from his residence for the next 18 years. Dr. van der Westhuyzen’s calm disposition makes a big difference when tending to the dental needs of patients that are anxious or fearful.

Dr. van der Westhuyzen has a keen interest in the field of restorative techniques, crown and bridge work and ensures that he stays abreast of the latest trends and techniques by regularly attending relevant refresher courses.

With a vision of expanding the practice, Dr. van der Westhuyzen relocated his practice to larger premises in Bergvliet. From here he continues to provide dental care in his customary gentle and caring manner.
