Dental Theatre History
Claremont Paediatric Dental Theatre trading as Strathmed, was established in 2005 as a facility aimed at providing solely dental treatment for children, in a child-friendly environment, at an affordable cost.
Private theatre costs can spiral beyond the average household’s budget very easily. A dental procedure may only take a few minutes in theatre, yet the bill may exceed thousands of rands.
The theatre manages to minimise it’s cost as a result of it’s size. There are no large wards requiring daily maintenance, but the facility is a minor day clinic with a fully functional theatre.
