Andy graduated at the University of the Witwatersrand In 1981 and was awarded the Henry St. John Randolph medal as the Best All Round Student of his class. He relocated to Cape Town in 1982 and established the Hout Bay Dental Studio in 1983. The once 'single-dentist' practice has since successfully expanded to incorporate four dentists, a part time periodontist and an oral hygienist.

Andy has a particular interest in mercury-free, minimally invasive dentistry and in treating patients in a holistic manner. He receives referrals from many alternative health practitioners and is familiar with all the unique concerns and demands related to these patients' dental treatment. Andy also has vast experience in dental implantology, having attended several international and local courses and symposiums on all aspects relating thereto.

Andy is a founding member and President of the South African Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry. He is the Cape Town Study Club Director and Fellow of the International Team of Implantology. A national lecturer, he has published articles in dental and health journals, contributed many case presentations to his study groups and made several guest appearances on radio and television discussing dental related matters.

He is married to Alison, a complementary health practitioner with expertise in biochemical tissue salts, Aura-Soma colour therapy and astrology. In his spare time Andy is a keen sportsman with a particular love for cycling.
