Dr. Botes graduated at the top of his class from University of Pretoria in South Africa in 2004 after which he established his own successful dental practice in Pretoria and developed a reputation for being a perfectionist, a quality his patients greatly appreciated.
In 2009 Dr. Botes brought his family to the US and was one of only 35 applicants (out of 800) accepted into the prestigious Program for Advanced Standing Students at University of Pennsylvania's School of Dental Medicine. He was one of only 3 students to earn the PASS-International Dentist Award. He also received an award from Academy of Operative Dentistry as well as the Eisa Mozaffari award in Radiology. He partnered with Dr. Michael Hajatian in 2015 to establish Doylestown Family Dentistry.
The most enjoyable part of his work is getting to know the patients and being able to play a role in improving their oral health, which contributes to their quality of life. He is truly passionate about dentistry, but strikes a balance between his professional and personal lives. He maintains his fitness through running, biking and hiking with his family.
Dr. Botes and his wife Estelle have three daughters. When time allows, Dr. Botes enjoys spending time with his family, traveling. They travel to South Africa as often as time allows, but also enjoy road trips in the USA. They particularly enjoyed traveling to Colorado and appreciated the majestic scenery.
