DR HENDRIK EHLERS - MAXILLO-FACIAL & ORAL SURGEON
NEW EAST, LYNNWOOD, CENTURION EAST, CENTURION WEST, MIDRAND
I qualified as a dentist at the University of Pretoria in 2003 and completed my community service at Ellisras Hospital in 2004, where I developed a keen interest in surgery.
After completion of my community service I furthered my studies and obtained a postgraduate diploma at the University of Pretoria in oral surgery in 2005 and a master’s degree in oral surgery (Cum Laude) in 2010.
Between 2005 and 2011 I practised as a dentist in Pretoria and was also involved at the University of Pretoria as a part time lecturer and medical officer in the Department of Maxillofacial and Oral surgery.
I began specialising as a maxillofacial and oral surgeon at the University of Pretoria in 2011 and completed my studies in 2016 with MChD (ChirMaxFac-Dent)(Cum Laude) degrees at the University of Pretoria; and FCMFOS(SA) at the South African College of Medicine.
I entered into private practice as a Maxillofacial and Oral Surgeon directly after completing my studies in 2016 and is currently in full time private practice at the Netcare Pretoria East Hospital, with a special interest in facial trauma and dental implantology.
During your initial consultation with me, I will perform a thorough examination and identify any associated problems you may have. This will help me to develop a treatment plan that specifically suits your problem/s and I will explain what is required to achieve a high quality result. I will also explain the risks of the various surgical procedures and answer any questions you may have. I will then, with your permission, inform your referring doctor and any other health care providers who you elect to include, about your diagnosis and proposed treatment plan.
