You get what you give

‘You get what you give’. Perhaps the most easy explanation of how Karma defines our lives. The fact that we as dental professionals are fortunate to live our lives the way we do and that we are blessed with the joy in our work is unfortunately not the reality for everybody. We received so much from the people in our dental community already, we are simply obliged to also give something back.

That’s why we started the KARMA. Foundation. Our non-profit foundation contributes to the community in two ways:

  • Funding scientific research on important dental topics that stretch the boundaries of our biological knowledge.
  • Funding dental care for people that deserve dental care but don’t have the resources to pay for it.

Are you interested in helping or contributing to the foundation? Please get in touch with us by sending an email to foundation@karma-dentistry.com.

Martin Grobler: A Dentistry Odyssey
I am Martin Grobler, and my life has been a captivating journey through the intricate world of dentistry, shaped by diverse experiences that have broadened my perspective and deepened my passion for healthcare.

South African Roots and Academic Milestone
Born and raised in the enchanting landscapes of South Africa, my academic journey led me to graduate proudly from the prestigious University of Witwatersrand in 2016.

A Year of Service
In 2017, freshly graduated, I immersed myself in the frontlines of healthcare, serving in hospitals, satellite clinics, and outreach programs. This year not only solidified my commitment to the field but also shaped my approach to dentistry.

Unique Outlook and Skill Development
South Africa's diverse patient base and resource limitations fueled my innovation and taught me the importance of collaboration and teamwork in delivering exceptional healthcare services.

From Complex Surgeries to European Specialization
Working closely with an esteemed oral maxillofacial surgeon in South Africa, I gained expertise in complex surgeries. Later, I specialized in restorative dentistry and achieved a Master's in Implantology in Europe. With these skills I am lucky enough to co lecture at my own course and am one of the instructors at an implantology course .

Dedication Beyond Dentistry
Today, I am a practice owner, Chef de Clinique for quality in multiple practices, and an oral surgeon and implantologist. But my passion extends beyond the dental chair. I am committed to mentoring and sharing knowledge with the next generation of dental professionals, with the unwavering support of my dedicated team and dental assistants.
