Meet The Team at Hanover House
Dr. Pieter Claassen
“Dr Claassen Explains Why He Chose A Career In Dentistry”
Dr. Pieter Claassen qualified in 1999 from the Pretoria University. He then moved to England and began working in Tunbridge Wells. In 2004, Dr. Claassen joined the Hanover House Dental Clinic team.
Pieter has been providing implants for his patients ever since he was awarded with a Master of Science of Dental Implants Degree, with Merit, from Warwick University. Having qualified as a dentist in 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa (BChD, GDC Registration no. – 76231), Pieter has been providing dental care throughout the UK, focussing his expertise in Kent.
Pieter has plenty of experience in a vast range of dental treatments, and is still passionate about delivering great dentistry and life-transforming dental implants. Smile makeovers are one of Dr. Claassen’s favourite parts of dentistry. He finds it very rewarding to be able to dramatically improve an individual’s appearance, and see the pride they feel when they use their new smiles.
When he is not busy being a dentist, Pieter spends his time with his wife, Estie (a hygienist), and their two boys, Calvin, 5, and Brady, 3 – both of whom love to fight and beat each other up (though Calvin thinks Brady is a much better fighter!)
Dr. Claassen provides a variety of dental services, with a special interest in dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. He takes pride in painless dentistry with exceptional quality. His practice maintains a warm and inviting atmosphere, and his patients receive compassionate, personal attention.
“Dr Claassen Tells You Where He Studied”
Pieter is a pioneer of the thinking that even the smallest change can be the biggest. The one tooth that has bothered you for years is replaced or whitened, and just like that – your confidence, style and personality can change in an instant.
“Dr Claassen Reveals His Most Satisfying Moments In Dentistry”
When he is not transforming smiles and eradicating toothaches, Dr. Claassen enjoys snowboarding and martial arts.

Meet Dr Luke Mirza
Hi I’m Luke, I’ve been with Hanover house now for 18 months and have enjoyed every minute so far!
After graduating from Bristol University in 2010 I realised that after initial interest in oral surgery within a hospital setting, that actually practice life was what I really enjoyed!
I’m a very sociable person and enjoy making people feel at ease in the surgery through my relaxed but professional approach to dentistry!
I have a particular interest in creating a pleasant experience for people when then come to the dental practice, which I know can be a very daunting experience for most! I hope when you come to see me, I can remove those anxieties you may have and keep you relaxed!
Within general dentistry, I have a keen interest in minimally invasive smile makeovers, I enjoy creating a nice smile whilst preserving as much as possible!
Outside of dentistry I’m a very active person, keen golfer and member of a local club. I also recently decided to rekindle my interest in playing basketball which I hadn’t played for over 8 years, I joined a local team where I manage to keep fit and meet new people.
Thanks for taking the time to choose us at Hanover House, I look forward to seeing you soon!
