Jacqui Whittaker - Practice Manager & Receptionist

“I have worked with Dr Arrison for 14 years as his practice manager. My love for people makes my job seem easy, and I take great pride on what I do for the practice. I am a mother of three children (two sons and a daughter).

My interests outside of work and the dental industry are many, and my main hobbies include doing muay thai training twice a week, as well as climbing Lions head - often twice a week also. I like relaxing with good friends and family, and I absolutely love to travel too!”

Monique van der Merwe - Receptionist (In-house Periodontists)

"I am originally from Klerksdorp, in the North West Province. I find myself in Cape Town after having studied Dental Technology, before which I spent a year as Dental Assistant to Dr Douw Gerbrand van der Merwe - my Grandfather - a well known and respected dentist based in Klerksdorp.

I graduated in Dental Technology in 2016 and have had the urge to learn something new. I now have the opportunity to assist Century Dental Clinic and the in-house Periodontists, allowing me to be gain experience in a more specialized field of dentistry.

Since starting in February 2017 I have acquired knowledge of Implant placement and perio-health, customer service, and facets of the business side of the practice."

Michelle - Dental Assistant to Dr Arrison

“I have been working for Dr Arrison for 3 years now, and I have been in the dentistry field for many years prior.

My interests involve painting and anything related to art. I am proud to say that all the paintings displayed at Dr Arrison's practice are my own, and our clients always comment on how they brighten up and compliment the practice. During the weekends I enjoy time spent with my family, and I am a mother of one daughter.”
