Sports Dentistry

Optimal Athletic Performance and Sports Dentistry:


In order to achieve athletic performance excellence whether at International, National, provincial, club or social level, optimal general and oral health is of vital importance. The rigours of intense athletic training programs place a significant physiological stress on the body and oral structures. Optimal general health together with optimal dental health, as part of a holistic athletic training program, is therefore mandatory to achieve improved athletic results and times.

Dr Peter van der Meulen works with his team of dental specialists to provide you with treatment solutions to optimise your pursuit of athletic performance excellence. Specific attention needs to be given to dental infection, inflammation and malocclusion (bite problems) in order to achieve optimal athletic performance.

Having represented South Africa at two world windsurfing championships and currently being a multiple Strava KOM cycling recipient, Dr Peter van der Meulen is ideally qualified and experienced to assist you.

We look forward to meeting you at our High-Performance practice.


Below is a recent testimonial of one of the elite sports professionals who visits Dr van der Meulen's practice for sport-specific treatment:  



I am really loving the treatment with Dr van der Meulen. Using the very latest research to apply dentistry to my triathlon career I can’t believe the small changes have had true data improvements. The personal touch, the interest in races and how to apply the science in a daily achievable way had been second to none, thanks team!!
