Business Information


Righardt van Huyssteen grew up in Hermanus and studied at the University of Stellenbosch. After qualifying in 2002, he moved upcountry to complete his required year of community service and then practiced as a locum dentist. In 2006, he became an associate at Drs Carse & van Huyssteen in Sasolburg. They also managed a successful practice in Meyerton.

After marrying and becoming a father, he decided that it was time to move back down to the coast and found himself looking at business premises in Gansbaai. It was love at first sight when he walked into the wooden-floored  Barnard Street practice, which has been open since 2012.

Dr van Huyssteen started doing courses in Implantology, one of his passions, in 2004. He received his Diploma in Implantology in 2016 from the University of Pretoria, which he passed with Distinction. He is also a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), which is based in Switzerland and offers members access to the latest research and cutting-edge techniques.

The dynamic dental team at Dr van Huyssteen’s practice consists of Hanrie Fourie and Karla Gerber. Hanri, who is responsible for the administration of the practice, will meet you on arrival and her friendliness will calm your nerves, making you feel at home. Karla Gerber, Dr Van Huyssteen’s dental assistant, studied nursing at Eben Donges Hospital and worked as an assistant nurse at Medsac Private Hospital before going into private nursing.
