About East London Oral Health Centre


East London Oral Health Centre is a dental practice that was birthed from Nu-Smile Dental and Pohl Dental Studio joining forces in January 2020.


We are based in the suburb of Beacon Bay, serving a community that stretches far beyond the borders of East London.
