Dr Albertyn Potgieter Dentists At Health
Dr. Albertyn Potgieter


BChD, Dentistry


Hi, I am Dr. Albertyn Potgieter and joined Dentists at Health in 2008. My passion for Orthodontics, Airway and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) Disorders started in 2011 and it's been an exciting journey ever since. My mission is to restore healthy beautiful smiles. I want to help my patients gain relief from TMJ related symptoms i.e. headaches, migraines, tinnitis, vertigo and provide solutions to snoring and sleep apnea, I've limited my scope of practice to these demanding but fascinating disciplines. There is no better reward when patients tell me we are changing their quality of life and not just sticking a band-aid on a problem.

I am grateful for a loving supporting wife and two beautiful children. We're big on making memories and spending quality time with friends. A big priority and joy are to serve our local church and live a life of significance. I'm blessed to be a blessing.

Dr Piasha Pillay Dentists At Health
Dr. Piasha Pillay


BChD, Dentistry


I started working at Dentists@Health Walmer in 2015 and it’s been my second home ever since. I love the sense of family we have managed to create within the practice and amongst our patients.

My favourite area of dentistry is working with children, bringing a smile to their faces and building good relationships with them from a young age and being part of their journey as they grow with confident healthy smiles, hopefully eliminating the fear they had previously perceived of going to the dentist. It has also sparked my newly found interest in orthodontics, which has broadened my scope.

If I’m not busy with teeth, I’m probably somewhere busy with food or travelling.  I look forward to welcoming you to our practice, getting to know you and your family, and helping in restoring your oral health and overall well-being.

BChD, Dentistry


She is a passionate, vibrant lady with big dreams and aspirations! And we are excited to have her as part of our dental family! A little bit more about her:

“I had the privilege to join the Dentists at Health team in March 2021.

I am a Pretoria girl with a passion for dentistry and all that it entails. I always say life is too short to only chew on one side, and that is my mission - to make the dental visit a comfortable experience and provide our patients with the best possible care.

I love the scope of general dentistry and I have a special interest in dental surgery which includes the removal of wisdom teeth and the placement of dental implants. I am excited to provide our patients with comprehensive treatment with our state of the art technology.

I believe in living life to the fullest, not only in my professional career but also in my personal life. My spirit seeks adventure wherever I wander and I am always keen to take on something new whether it's playing tennis, surfing, learning Spanish, hiking or running. You will definitely find me outdoors.”
