Dr Liezl Kemp

Dr Liezl Kemp was born in Oudtshoorn as the daughter of one of the local dentists.

She started her studies at the University of Stellenbosch, where she took part in various cultural and sports activities and was appointed as the Head Student of her hostel in 2006.

After the University of Stellenbosch's amalgamation with the University of Western Cape, she completed her degree in 2007 and was also awarded a prize for her good work in the Department of Orthodontics.

She then went on to complete her community service at the SAMF's 3 Military Hospital in Bloemfontein, where she was in the fortunate position of getting exposure to various dental procedures (including full mouth rehabilitations, orthodontics and implants).

On the completion of her community service, she moved to Cape Town, and in 2013 she started Dr Liezl Kemp and Associates.
