Multi-Skilled Dr Wayne Carolissen Shares 10 Dental Insights

He  specialises in dentistry and facial aesthetics. We chatted to WeCare Dental Peterborough’s Dr Wayne Carollisen

Best known for being multi-disciplined, WeCare Dental Surgery in Peterborough’s co-founder, Dr Wayne Carolissen, shares his insights on: dental treatments, investing in the best new tech and putting patients’ comfort and health first. 

MEET DR WAYNE CAROLISSEN

Born and raised in Paarl, in the heart of the Cape Winelands of South Africa, Dr Wayne Carolissen says he can’t remember a time he didn’t want to be involved in the medical field somehow. A lover of all things sport, he grew up competing in athletics, tennis and table tennis. 

But as soon as he was able, he completed his studies in South Africa and qualified as a dentist, opening his own practice in the 1980s, which he ran for 15 years before emigrating to the UK, where he worked at Herlington Dental for 17 years, after which he again ventured into creating something unique of his own.

In 2019, Dr Wayne Carolissen co-founded WeCare Dental Surgery along with fellow dentist Dr Morne Williams.


At WeCare Dental, Dr Carolissen is best known for being multi-disciplined – apart from his extensive dental experience (he’s been a practising dentist for 32 years!) he also specialises in facial aesthetics and anti-aging treatments, having trained under world-renowned Professor Bob Khanna. Today, at WeCare Dental, Dr Carolissen offers advanced treatments, including facial threadlifting (a non-surgical facelift).

Currently living in Peterborough with his wife – with whom he enjoys cooking – Dr Wayne Carolissen shares his insights on trending dental treatments, tech, putting patient care before everything and gives us some useful tips on oral care.

Which treatments are popular right now?

Dental implants, for sure. Today’s technology is just amazing. You’re no longer forced to have all your teeth extracted and settle for removable dentures. Nowadays we attach upper and lower teeth to implants, and the results are excellent. It looks natural, and you’ll feel comfortable enough to eat anything! You can even bite into an apple. And, it’s also done in one visit so you get to see the results immediately after your procedure. We call it Teeth-In-A-Day.

STRAIGHT FROM THE DOC: DENTAL ADVICE

What advice would you offer to nervous patients?

I’d say that at WeCare Dental, patients are welcomed with a caring and understanding approach.  We are gentle and we do everything to make the experience pleasant.

What do you tell patients before a procedure?

That we are always open and honest about the processes. We take care of our patients before, during and after treatments. We’ve invested in the very best technology and the latest equipment to make your experience as comfortable as possible; gone are the days of awkward, messy impressions – we render your mouth in 3D, and you can watch on a big screen to see exactly what we see. We can then discuss exactly what’s required. 

What dental care mistakes do you wish people would avoid?

Aggressive brushing of teeth. It causes the gum line to recede, which isn’t good for your dental health in the long term.  We use Gum Lift®  a new technology that lets us treat a receding gum line without surgery.

ABOUT WECARE DENTAL

How has dentistry changed over the years? 

For us at WeCare, it’s definitely about being more caring. We approach our treatments with the patient’s full comfort and care in mind.  We also allow you to give input on your procedure, thanks to 3D imaging on big screens. So, it really is more interactive. And I believe that’s how you get the best out of dental care.

What new tech in your practice impresses you most?

We have some spectacular new machines which allow us to plan your dental implants, crowns and other elements digitally, and then help perform the whole treatment. And 3D printing tech is just amazing. You can ‘print out’ a porcelain crown in less than 12 minutes, while the patient waits.
