    Cherie Swanepoel

    Orthodontic Therapist
    RDN, Dip Orth (Warwick)
    GDC No: 109415

    Cherie' qualified in 1998 as an Oral Hygienist from the University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, when she was awarded a Diploma in Oral Hygiene. During her time in Stellenbosch, she worked doing community service organised by the Department of Health. This included oral hygiene sessions on children with special needs in Schools for the disabled. She also worked on the Health Train "The Phelophepa" which aimed to provide services to less privileged communities.

    Subsequently, from 1998 to 2001 she worked in a Specialist Orthodontic Practice as Oral Hygienist and Dental Therapist, with the practice owner Dr Amos Lambrechts who was also a lecturer at the University of Stellenbosch. Cherie also played a key role in starting Dental Sense, a dental practice and shop in a busy shopping centre, where she helped running the shop floor, advised patients and worked part-time as hygienist.

    In 2001 she joined the practice at Epsom Orthodontics and later helped at our Guildford practice also. During this time she continued her professional development and gained further qualifications in:

    • Dental Nursing
    • Orthodontic Nursing
    • Certificate in Dental Radiography

    Her desire was always to return to working on patients like before and she realised this ambition in 2011 when she was awarded a Diploma in Orthodontic Therapy from Warwick Medical School.

    Cherie’ is the proud mother of two young boys, and enjoys kayaking, mountain biking and working on her own recipe book in her spare time as she loves cooking and baking.
