It' a pleasure to meet you!


I am Dr Jacobie Claasen, founder of Vermilion Dental and Health. Thank you for taking a moment to glance into the digital home of our practice.

Vermilion Dental and Health was born from the vision that effective dentistry can translate into a comfortable and positive patient experience. With patient focused treatment plans and attention to detail, we strive to offer an enhanced experience of dentistry. We are located within Advanced Groenkloof Day Hospital

‘Vermilion’ can be defined as a vivid shade of red. Also the reddish area of the lip; to which lipstick is applied. The vermilion border marks the meeting of the lip and the skin; of intra- and extra oral. The meeting of dentistry and medicine.

We trust your experience at Vermilion Dental & Health will not only fulfil your dental needs, but also contribute to your overall health and well being.

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease” 
Sir William Osler
