Andy graduated in 1981 from the University of the Witwatersrand, honoured to receive the Henry St. John Randolph medal award for the Best All Round Student of the year.

He relocated to Cape Town in 1982 and founded 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 aesthetic dentistry and the holistic treatment of patients. Many integrative health practitioners refer to him, and he is familiar with all the unique concerns and demands related to these patients' dental treatment. Andy has vast experience in dental implantology, attending several international and local courses and symposiums on all aspects relating to it.

Andy is a founder member and past President of the South African Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry. He is a Fellow of the International Team of Implantology and served for several years as the Cape Town Study Club Director. 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 biochemic tissue salts, Aura-Soma colour therapy and astrology. In his spare time, Andy is a keen sportsman with a particular love for cycling.
