New Zealand resident Debra Warwood says the Kuils River community is lucky to have a dentist as affordable and talented as Dr Hendricks.
For more than 14 years, Debra Warwood never had any major dental issues. She was a disciplined patient, visiting her local dentist in Auckland, New Zealand for regular cleanings and check-ups on an annual basis without concern.
However, earlier in 2018, during her regular visit, she was given bad news.
During the check-up, the dentist had diagnosed an abscess. She was also advised to remove her wisdom teeth. The lengthy procedure to resolve these issues would’ve cost Debbie in the range of R27 000.
However, during her holiday in Cape Town, South Africa – her cousin Deidre Flandorp recommended that she visit Dentico for a second opinion. Deidre was a regular at Dentico and a big supporter of Dr Hendricks. It proved to be a decision that saved her thousands of money and time in the chair.
“I didn’t have anything to lose going to Dentico as I wanted to have a second opinion on my situation. But it turned out, I had a lot to gain!” explained Debra.
“I was very impressed when I first arrived. The Dentico staff are very professional and made sure I felt comfortable from the moment I stepped in, which eases the nerves. Everything was very punctual and was invited into Dr Hendricks’ surgery shortly after arriving.
“Dr Hendricks is a very friendly and knowledgeable dentist. She communicates really well, which made me understand more during the process of the check-up.
“And it turned out she had good news for me!”
Contradictory to the original diagnosis, Dr Hendricks believed Debbie’s teeth was in a healthy state – even her wisdom teeth were in good condition and not creating any major problems.
All that was required was a root canal.
“I now head back to New Zealand with my main issues sorted out. I am planning to visit Dentico during my next holiday in Cape Town, when I’ll have a crown placed. I am very happy with the service I received from Dr Hendricks, who is a talented young dentist. She’s very wise and skilled for her age.”
Debra has already recommended Dentico to her family in Cape Town.
“My cousin is already a big fan. My sister and her family have made their appointments and will be visiting Dr Hendricks soon,” said Debbie. “The Kuils River community is very lucky to have a dentist like Dr Hendricks. It’s very seldom that you find a medical professional who cares more about giving the patient great service and saving them money.
“That proves that Dr Hendricks’ heart is in the right place.”
