Sanmari Botha 1975 - 2020

Posted by Stella Pascale on Thursday, 18 June 2020 08:11

It is with great sadness that I have to inform the OHASA Members of the passing of one of our colleagues

Sanmari  was born on 29th November 1975 and passed away on the weekend.

Sanmari stayed in Port Elizabath at the time of her death. 

She qualified at Stellenbosch University in 1996 and  she worked at the Medicross in Port Elizabeth until opening her own practice in December 2019.

Sanmari was a Eastern Cape Branch member for a number of years and served on the EC Branch committee – we will miss her.

While there is nothing that we can say to help ease the family's sorrow,

take comfort in the knowledge that there will always be tomorrow.

We cannot comprehend just how sad they must be feeling, 

the pain within their heart takes time to start the healing.

Let the memories of the years you have shared

wash over your heart and soul 

Let the knowledge that you are in our prayers

help you to console.

Let His spirit fill you with strength and love

may it help the pain decrease

as each day that brings a glorious dawn

create an inner peace.


With our sincerest and deepest condolences for your loss

CAPP Oral B Webinar 11 June 2020 - Peri-Implant Complications

Posted by Stella Pascale on Monday, 1 June 2020 20:16

Oral-B & CAPP cordially invite you to join us for our next FREE CME Live Stream event on 11th of June 2020.


When: 11th of June 2020:  2pm Dubai | 6pm Singapore | 8pm Sydney


Speaker: Prof. Axel Spahr, Australia (Dr. med. dent. habil., MRACDS {Perio})


Topic: Peri-Implant Complications – Aetiology, Pathogenesis, Prevention and Treatment



The replacement of missing teeth with restorations anchored on endosseous dental implants is a common treatment option, attractive for dentists and much sought-after by patients. The number of dental implants placed worldwide is increasing continuously, resulting in an impressively and aggressively growing implant market. The number of implant manufacturers is also increasing, providing us today with a huge range of different implant types/shapes, lengths, diameters and surfaces. Unfortunately, the increasing number of implants is accompanied by an increasing incidence of peri-implant mucositis and even worse, peri-implantitis, leading to the disintegration of a formerly successfully osseo-integrated dental implant and eventually to implant loss. Therefore, great endeavour has been made during recent years to identify and validate materials and techniques suitable for implant maintenance as well as potential factors associated with peri-implant complications and protocols for the treatment of peri-implant diseases.


Lecture Objectives:

- structure and special features of peri-implant tissues

- important factors for implant failure or implant complications

- materials and techniques for the maintenance of dental implants

- prevention and treatment approaches for peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis

- an algorithm for implant maintenance based on the current evidence


Price: FREE


CME: 1 CE Credit (ADA CERP) – Recognised by MOHAP, DoH-Abu Dhabi, DHA & GCC Authorities for 1 CME
