Liliana graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science Cum Laude, at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa in 1985. She graduated with distinctions in all final year subjects. This has been achieved only once before in the history of the university (by Professor John Lemmer), and has not been achieved since.

Specialist interests

Liliana went on to specialise in Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery in the Department of Surgery at the University of Witwatersrand, and trained at the world-renowned Baragwanath Hospital. She qualified as a Maxillofacial and Oral Surgeon in 1991, also gaining her Fellowship in Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery through the College of Medicine of South Africa in the same year. She subsequently fulfilled the requirements set out by the General Dental Council, and became registered as a Specialist in Oral Surgery.


Liliana is exceptionally qualified for her role as an Oral Surgeon and Implant Surgeon. She placed her first implant back in 1990. This provided her with the perfect starting point for learning the finer points of implant surgery. Since then, she has gone on to become one of the most experienced Implantologists in South Africa.
