Dr Amadea Podrenek
Dr Amadea Podrenek qualified from University of Pretoria in 1991.
Having a special interest in cosmetic, aesthetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Podrenek keeps abreast of the latest dental procedures and technology. She maintains her expertise by completing several hours of study a year with different institutes locally, and abroad, and home study.
She has completed her Masters Level in Aesthetic Dentistry with the Aesthetic Advantage Program at the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry at the New York University College of Dentistry.
Gaining Level I and II in Functional Aesthetics in Clinical Practice from the world wide renowned Dawson Centre for Advanced Occlusal Study in the US, Dr Podrenek is able to restore function and occlusion in mouths that have lost a lot of tooth structure.
Being very passionate about preventing decay in not only children’s adult teeth, but milk teeth as well, Dr. Podrenek spends a lot of time educating her young patients from an early age in good oral hygiene. All teeth are important for the development of the dentition. Any non-routine loss of teeth at an early age can cause a lot of problems with alignment of the permanent teeth which can then cause orthodontic treatment to be more complex. Dr Podrenek also visits local schools to carry out talks for the children.
Although Dr. Podrenek is married with two children and family life keeps her busy, she finds time to enjoy cooking, needlework, arts and crafts. She occasionally plays golf and tries to keep fit in the gym. Being born Slovenian and raised in South Africa, Dr. Podrenek speaks English, Afrikaans, Slovenian and German.
