Andrew BDS (Rand)
Principal Dentist GDC NO. 64550
Hi, I am Andrew Hong, principal dentist here at Hythe Dental Care.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. My dental degree was completed at The University of the Witwatersrand. in 1988.
After graduation I owned my own private dental practice for 9 years before my wife and I decided to come to the UK for a safer life. I worked in the east of London for 4 years doing NHS dentistry and took the opportunity when it came to purchase a practice in the picturesque town of Hythe.
Away from dentistry I enjoy playing golf, cycling and walking my dog. I also believe in helping in the community we live in and I am an active member of Hythe Rotary Club. I am also a member of the Hythe Chamber of Commerce.
