Born and raised on the sunny coast of Durban, Dr Govender was then offered the opportunity to study her Bachelor’s degree in Dentistry on the opposite coast, at the University of the Western Cape. She received both her BChD and PDD in aesthetic dentistry at the University of the Western Cape.
I have always been very nervous about going to the dentist, until I have been to Dr Sarisha Govender.
She is so patient and even more gentle. She ensured that I was comfortable and that my neck was properly supported as I have cervical spondolosis. I had the pain free injection done (which I thought was really amazing). Dr Govender kept talking to me during the whole process, I felt so relaxed and comfortable. I had to have two extractions done in the one consult. Within a few moments she said “and we are done”! I was surprised as I was still anticipating the feeling of my teeth being extracted. I still asked, “have you done both?” She said “yes” with a soft chuckle, and I was really surprised. I didnt feel anthing!
I have been to both her practices in Benoni and Edenvale. Her staff are friendly and just the overall experience is really great! I dont dread going to the dentist anymore.
