Dr. Orlando Rojas
Dr. Orlando Rojas was born in Bogota Colombia, He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Colombian College of Dentistry in 1986. Upon graduating, Dr. Rojas worked in private practice while lecturing part time at his Alma Mater. In April 1990 he relocated to Pretoria, South Africa where he validated his degree with the South African Medical and Dental council. He lectured and furthered his studies at the Medical University of South Africa where he worked until 1999. During this period he lectured extensively locally and also internationally and was an active member of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR-SA).
During the 90’s he was also heavily involved with the provision of Oral health services for the under privileged communities both from the university and also privately as a co-founder of the Dental Care Group, his work with the Group was instrumental for the delivery of dentistry at the highest standard with the highest available technology of the time, for the communities that were historically oppressed and did not have access before to a dignified health service.
By 1999 the growing number of patients going from Pretoria to see Dr Rojas in the “township” persuaded him to open a dental office in the city.
This is how THE HOME OF BIOLOGIC DENTISTRY came about. Dr. Rojas hasn’t stopped to improve himself for the benefit of his patients. He follows a biologically integrated approach to dentistry. The philosophy is to provide the highest quality of Biological oral health care that will enhance the patient's immune system and well being, setting the stage for good health.
For those patients who opt for the best approach he uses the Swiss Biohealth Concept to remove interferences in the oral cavity that are harming their health, this includes the safe removal of all metals, dead teeth, necrotic bone and other focal points of infection.
He has successfully combined alternative sciences and functional cosmetic dentistry into his practice to treat many dental problems with sometimes astounding results. He is also involved with amazing treatment modalities like Body Talk, Emotional Freedom technique (EFT), Reiki, energy work using among others, the Violet flame of Ascended Master Saint Germain.
Although his spiritual path has been his top priority since 2003, he has kept pace with new developments in his profession.
