Dr Dawie Schlebusch B.Ch.D. Dentistry, Dip.Odont, Implantology and Periodontology

Dr Dawie Schlebusch qualified as a dentist from University of Stellenbosch in 1987. During the subsequent 25 years of private practice, he has completed diplomas in Periodontology and Implantology. He has recently achieved international certification in Laser Dentistry and Sleep Medicine.

Dr Schelbush started investigating the TMJ as an integral part of dental treatment during 1996. His fascination with the topic has seen him do numerous courses on TMD with Dr Skip Truitt, Dr Sylvia Menzel and Prof David Singh. He has further done a substantial study on the work of dentists such as Dawson, Okeyson, Liao and Lauson, as well as medical expert George Merideth.

He is part of local study groups that focus on TMD, and his practice treats referred TMD patients daily.
