Serious about Dentistry

Firmly believing that not all dentistry is equal, Dr. Naidoo set out to create a practice where the focus was on dentistry, pure and simple.

And so, in 2007, in a bold move away from simply being a solo practitioner, Dr. Sankaran Naidoo established Gateway Dental Inc. in the heart of Umhlanga, KwaZulu Natal, conveniently situated behind Gateway Shopping Centre.

Today Dr. Naidoo heads up a team of highly skilled professionals with a view to offering a fully comprehensive dental solution, for every stage of life under one roof.

From pediatric to geriatric dental care, including cosmetic dentistry, Gateway Dental synergizes the skills of a passionate team with the latest technology to deliver an unsurpassed dental experience.

Our Values:

Passion, Care, Quality

We believe in one thing: service to man is service to God, and as such, we take great care in performing even the simplest of tasks to the best of our ability. We believe the work we do is meaningful and life changing. It is this passion for dentistry and our care for the people we work with and for, that sees us striving every day to provide a quality service that ensures our patients return to us, year after year for the last 15 years.

All professional staff at Gateway Dental Inc. are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), and as such, we are committed to maintaining excellent standards of ethical and professional conduct at all times.

Our Vision:

To be a trusted dental practice that provides a comprehensive dental solution for life, through the use of leading-edge technology, executed by a team of highly skilled, passionate dental professionals.
