Roelien Stapelberg

Specialist, Orthodontist, South Africa

Crafting your perfect smile

A smile says a thousand words and opens doors you never knew were shut... The first thing in meeting any person is your hello and your smile."

Dr Roelien has dentistry in her genes. Her father is a very prominent orthodontist in South Africa and her grandfather also practised as a general dentist and lectured at Pretoria’s dental school. As a child, she was exposed to braces, crooked teeth and the happy smiles of patients who finished their treatments. “A smile says a thousand words and opens doors you never knew were shut. It starts friendships, careers and romantic relationships, the first thing in meeting any person is your hello and your smile.”

Dr Roelien completed her education and training in South Africa, Scotland, Sweden and Dubai. Dr Roelien holds a Master’s degree in Orthodontics from Malmö University, Sweden and European University College, Dubai. She owns her own clinic in South Africa and has years of professional experience in the UAE. Dr Roelien perfectly complements the Snö team, allowing us to solve even the most difficult orthodontic cases.

When she is not at the clinic, she is publishing and lecturing on orthodontics, in the UAE and abroad. This helps not just the Snö team, but wider dental community in Abu Dhabi and the UAE to reach the highest standards of orthodontic work. Her guilty pleasure is her love for baking, particularly cakes and pastries. 

Dr Roelien is fluent in English and Afrikaans.
