Dr. Zak SchabortAesthetic Dentist
From his humble beginnings, growing up on a South African rose farm, Dr. Zak has always been surrounded – and captivated – by beauty. Not only by the way beautiful things look, but also by the joy they can add to peoples lives.
After studying dentistry at the University of Pretoria, Dr. Zak trained further in the highly specialized field of Aesthetic Dentistry, both locally and abroad. At just 26 years old, despite his youth, he was hand-selected and approached by Allergan Pharmaceuticals. Today Dr. Zak has trained doctors from all over the world in cutting-edge Aesthetic Beauty Techniques.
“I empower doctors with knowledge,” Dr. Zak adds, “and I teach natural outcomes so people can look their own personal best.” Dr Zak’s passion for his industry is as electrifying as his exuberant lust for life, charming, friendly character and, at the core of all his work, his passion for people. “I enhance people, I don’t create them,” he says, describing his heartfelt belief in his focus on outcomes that look and feel natural.
The Founder of the nationwide Cosmetic and Dental Emporium (with its flagship branch in the V&A Waterfront) Dr. Zak has treated top Hollywood stars, as well as top local celebrities. “Seeing my work on the big screen and on TV feels like making a positive impact on the world.”
“And now,” he concluded, “With the CDE, we’re going to take health & beauty further, make it more accessible and, importantly, educate people so they can make informed choices… so they may fully understand and reach for their own, true, individual potential.”
