Meet Dr. Joolam Kaka

I truly enjoy practicing orthodontics and love creating beautiful smiles. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a profession that is rewarding to both my patients and myself.  Every time I see my patients, I am pleased to know that I am helping them achieve the ideal smile they have always wanted.

The best thing about being an orthodontist is building personal relationships with each patient. I get to meet such talented and gifted young adolescents, fascinating and remarkable adults, and wonderful families.  At the end of treatment, it is amazing to see how a transformation in an individual’s smile has such a positive change to that person’s overall attitude and confidence.

Education and Experience

  • University of the Western Cape : Bachelor of Dentistry
  • University of the Witwatersrand : Master of Science ( Dentistry)
  • University of the Western Cape : Master of Dentistry ( Orthodontics)

By staying abreast of new techniques and keeping up with the constant research and advancements, I am able to offer my patients exceptional care when it comes to transforming their smiles. This may equate to shorter treatment time, less discomfort, and having more information about the different options for patients when investing in their healthier, more beautiful smiles.

Office Life

Orthodontics is fun and exciting, and our team reflects that every day we come to work. It’s no wonder patients forget they are there for an orthodontic appointment! We believe our patients are our utmost priority. We strive to make everyone feel pampered, so each one knows how much we care. From the front desk all the way to the back assistants, we all want to make sure each and every visit with us is fun, comfortable and convenient.

Outside the Office

I am a Johannesburg native and currently reside here with my lovely wife, three children and three grand-children. During my free time, I enjoy being active outdoors. I can be found playing tennis, cycling  and more recently golf, or with my greatest pleasure in life : my three beautiful grandsons.
