We are in the business of making people feel better, and we love it!
These are the faces of some of the other key people you will meet as you start your journey with us:
At True Alignment, we have committed to walk alongside each and every one of our patients as they go on a journey to transform their health and their smile.
This process can take years sometimes so we like to think of our patients as extended members of the True Alignment family!
Empathy + Technology
These two words are at the heart of everything we do.
Empathy - we understand that your unique health journey (and that of your kids) is one of the most personal things that you could trust someone with. Every patient of ours is wonderfully unique and we are so passionate about creating an environment where you feel heard, seen and educated on how to best improve the health of yourself and your loved ones.
Technology - we believe that you deserve the very best, most advanced products and services that are available! To that end, we are constantly looking to the future of orthodontics and incorporating cutting edge technology to improve both your experience with us, as well as your results.
Dr. Vernon Kruger
The team here at True Alignment are assisted by Dr. Vernon Kruger, a registered, qualified dentist who has been practicing the art and science of orthodontics for over thirty years, both locally and overseas.
Dr. Kruger's philosophy stems from a commitment to full-body health and wholeness.
This means his treatment addresses aspects such as the shape size and position of your jaw, the improvement of your airways, as well as, of course, that beautiful natural smile you always wanted.
His commitment to identifying underlying problems and developing comprehensive treatment plans that avoid invasive work such as teeth extractions means you can rest assured that you are in the very best of hands with us.
He is a Certified Senior Instructor at the International Association for Orthodontics with Fellow status membership. Dr Kruger has lectured internationally and in New Zealand on many occasions.
Full Body Wellness Vs. Narrow Specialisation
“Often, to get clarity on an issue, you need to look at the whole picture. I have a holistic philosophy, something our profession feels is very important“
Dr Kruger has chosen not to follow the conventional path of becoming a registered specialist orthodontist. As explained earlier, he prefers to look at the field of alignment, airways and facial beauty from a perspective that is not restricted to simply straightening teeth. The orthodontic profession is starting to focus a lot more on this now.
Bernard has been practising as a dentist for over 30 years, growing his own practice in South Africa from a bare-bones one man operation to a five-dentist practice over the years.
Having been pleasantly surprised by a positive dentist experience as a child, Bernard became interested in exploring pain-free dentistry and guiding people past their preconceived fears and ideas about dental work.
His particular passion is providing a family dentist practice experience, helping the whole family from child to elder, and building relationships which leave patients feeling both cared for and cared about.
