Background of the Practitioner
Dr R. Govender completed his initial undergraduate studies at the University of Western Cape, before moving on to Britain. There he gained his Master of Science in orthodontics at the Univerity of London as well as a range of associated qualifications from the orthodontics board in the United Kingdom. Dr Govender is undoubtedly learned, travelled and well experienced. It is a culmination of his knowledge and expertise that he seeks to bring to the orthodontic centres a high standard of care to all patients especially to those who cannot access affordable treatment.
While in the United Kingdom, he also gained extensive exposure and experience with some of the finest medical institutes anywhere in the country. This includes the valuable time he spent training at the Royal London Hospital, working at the Oral and Maxillofacial and Orthodontic Departments at the Hull Royal Infirmary, the Oral and Maxillofacial Department at the Diana Princess of Wales Hospital Grimsby, and the Orthodontic department at the Scunthorpe General Hospital all based in the United Kingdom.
Dr Govender based his Master’s research on the highly topical subject of “Growth Modification of the lower jaw in adolescence”, in which he also holds a special interest.
