Preserving Our Heritage Today, for Brighter Smiles Tomorrow

For many of us, our heritage represents who we are and how we identify ourselves.

We see the importance of preserving inherited traditions, monuments, objects, and culture – as we should. But valuing heritage is so much more than that. It includes preserving our environment and helping our communities build a holistically sustainable lifestyle. At Enamel Clinic, we dedicate ourselves to charity work that contributes to achieving these aims.


WE SUPPORT ORGANISATIONS DEDICATED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE. Learn about our involvement with organisations and charities in South Africa and around the world committed to preserving the environment and uplifting communities.


We’ve implemented a few ways to ensure that our clinic is an environmentally-friendly space:

  • Instead of plastic, we use washable, reusable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
  • A waterless suction unit allows us to use less water in our surgeries.
  • Our water dispenser is accompanied by biodegradable paper cups and our water is bottled in reusable glass bottles.
  • We largely use 3D scanners to take impressions of the mouth, significantly reducing the use of plastic impression materials and impression trays.
  • We’ve established a dedicated recycling centre in our clinic. Recyclable waste is gathered and collected by a specialist recycling company.


As a Slow Dentistry clinic, we commit to the four primary cornerstones during treatments:

Room Disinfection

We leave sufficient time between appointments to ensure that the room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This way, we ensure the safety, health and well-being of our patients.

Informed Consent

Our clinicians take the time to fully explain the treatments, results, risks and costs involved. We believe in open, honest and clear communication between dentists and patients, ensuring a calm, secure and comfortable experience.

Proper Anesthesia

Every dental patient has the right to pain-free treatment. Because not all teeth reach a state of numbness at the same speed, it may take longer for anaesthesia to take its full effect on some patients than others. Furthermore, not everyone has the same pain threshold. Clinicians take great care in ensuring that the area(s) are properly numbed before beginning any procedure.

Rubber Dam

Our clinicians use a rubber dam to prevent the patient from swallowing any products or sharp instruments, and to avoid cross-contamination in the mouth. It’s a latex or nitrate sheath used to completely isolate any tooth that will be undergoing treatments. The rubber dam setup requires time and skill, but it’s considered one of the most essential elements in safe, gold standard dentistry.

At our clinic, we are committed to the ongoing movement towards environmental and social development, and we are motivated by the positive impact it yields.
