Dr Amadea Podrenek qualified from the 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, abroad, and with home study. This includes completing 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, 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 their 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 premature 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.
Dr. Podrenek is married with two children and although family life keeps her busy, she finds time to enjoy cooking, needlework, art and crafts. She likes to play golf, tries to keep fit and enjoys walking her dogs. Being born Slovenian and raised in South Africa, Dr. Podrenek speaks English, Afrikaans, Slovenian and German.
