Personal Bio

A true advocate for “Ethical-Bio-Aesthetic dentistry”, Orlando Rojas was born in Bogotá Colombia, he is married to Ivette. Isabela and their twin boys Leonardo and Alejandro complete their immediate family.

His thesis during his under graduate studies was about the use of white fillings on posterior teeth. Back in 1985 he couldn’t find anything in the scientific literature except for articles coming from the Scandinavian countries, where the use of amalgam was banned for women during child bearing age and children below the age of 7.

After receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at the Colombian College of Dentistry in 1986, he worked in private practice while lecturing part time at his Alma Mater.

He was disappointed when he discovered that he was lied to by his professors with regards to the safety of amalgam fillings. If they lied about that, what else did they lie about? Therefore he went on a journey of discovering the truth.

During 1988, he removed all the amalgams of his best friend with the intention of restoring his health and witnessed in awe, for the first time ever, how within two weeks there was a complete reversal of his heavy metal toxicity symptoms. This pivotal event changed forever the way he will practice dentistry.

In April 1990 his degree was validated in South Africa after relocating to Pretoria.

Whilst lecturing and furthering his studies at the Medical University of South Africa in the department of community dentistry, he witnessed first-hand the crippling effects of fluoride in populations exposed to naturally fluoridated water, this was another eye opener!

He also lectured internationally and was also an active member of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR-SA).

He co-founded the Dental Care Group in 1994, which was instrumental for the delivery of dentistry at the highest standard for the communities that were historically oppressed and did not have access to a dignified health service.

Dr Rojas became a well renowned dentist, and was captured by the media featuring in articles of the Business day, El Clarin (Argentina), Mision Mundial (Argentina), Diario El Comercial (Argentina), O Imparcial and O Globo (Brasil) as well as in radio and Colombian TV.

In 1999, Dr Rojas ”The Singing Dentist”, was persuaded to establish a practice in Pretoria and this is how “THE HOME OF BIOLOGICAL DENTISTRY” came about.

In 2002, Bicon Dental Implant Systems recognised Dr Rojas as one of their international Instructors.

His philosophy is to provide the highest quality of health care, through conscious dentistry, that will enhance the well-being of each person that comes to his practice. It is a biologically integrated approach to dentistry, acknowledging the individual’s soul and the physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Dr Rojas abides by golden rule: “Do unto others what you would like to have done unto yourself”, his personalised, gentle, holistic health care approach successfully combines alternative sciences and functional dentistry into his practice to serve those who choose to walk this path with him. He is blessed to work with a large number of health care practitioners across South Africa, who sees in Biological Dentistry an essential part of the puzzle to bring their patients back into health.

Food for thought
Dr Rojas is always modest, kind and humble.
He believes that: “All medicine comes down to this: find out what doesn’t belong in your body get rid of it. Find out what is missing, replace it. The body does the rest as it is more important to understand the imbalances in your body’s basic systems and to restore balance, rather than name the disease and match the pill to the ill.
As per Dr Rojas own words: “I pledge to continue surrendering to God’s will for I am neither the doer nor the maker but I am grateful for having chosen this work!”
