Born and raised in Pretoria, Dr Andre Brand qualified with BChD at the University of Pretoria in 1996. Andre’s career started in Pretoria in a general dental practice. Thereafter he worked with a Specialist Prosthodontist in Bryanston, Johannesburg, where he gained constant mentoring and learning. During this time, he completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Oral Surgery at the University of Pretoria while working part-time in a teaching capacity in the same department.
Andre and his wife then moved to the UK. Initially, he worked as the Senior Dentist for the Milton Keynes branch of Boots Dental Care and later opened his own private practice in Windsor. His fields of interest developed into dental implantology and computerised dentistry with an emphasis on smile makeovers and endodontics. While in the UK, Andre completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Implantology at the University of the Western Cape.
Returning to South Africa after 9 years abroad, Andre and his family settled in Somerset West. Here he became involved in a private practice where he again focused on implant treatments, cosmetic and digital dentistry, and endodontics. Following the purchase of a Dental Microscope, Andre became passionate about the use of advanced technologies in all aspects of dentistry, and especially in the field of endodontics. Realising the need for microscope-enhanced endodontic treatments, he shifted his focus to this and subsequently completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Endodontics at the University of Pretoria.
Andre offers all aspects of endodontic treatments from his endodontic-focused practice on a referral basis. Andre is registered with the HPCSA and is a member of the South African Dental Association. He also co-runs an endodontic-specific study group and is keen on sharing knowledge and learning together.
