Three women, one practice

2011-03-09 00:00

THREE young professional women in Pietermaritzburg have teamed up to launch a new dental practice in the city, combining all dental services under one roof.

The women, who have set up in Roberts Road, are Drs Lizane van Wyk, Bianca Janssen and Ilze Wessels.

They told The Witness that the inviting prospect of establishing their own practice emerged after the previous owner moved to Australia.

“We wanted to pursue a lifelong dream of owning our own dental practice. The combination of all our skills contributes to a brilliant set-up,” they said.

Van Wyk, who was born in the Western Cape, completed her community service in Ladysmith and remained in KZN. Janssen was born Pietermaritzburg and Wessels in Dundee.

They said they have formed “great working relationships and friendships” over several years of working in private practice.

“We wanted to find a location that was out of the hustle and bustle of the city. It has a great homely atmosphere and is in close proximity to schools.

Besides ample parking, there is a large, safe garden for children to play in and the practice is wheelchair-friendly.

“We are continuously keeping up to date with modern technology by attending courses as far as abroad, to provide the best service possible,” the women told The Witness.
