Dr Tim Bugler

Dr Bugler qualified at Stellenbosch University in 1982 and spent 20 years in private practice in central, London before returning to Cape Town.

After owning numerous larger practices he now runs a single handed practice in the heart of Newlands. This enables him to cover all aspects of dentistry in a very personalised and patient focused manner.

Dr Bugler has experience in all dental procedures with special interest in cosmetics and implant related treatments. He also works closely with dental specialists to ensure the best treatment options for every patient.

Other interests include sailing, sport and brewing.



Our surgery is situated in the heart of the Newlands residential area with easy access from all directions in Cape Town. Patient parking is available on the driveway in front of the surgery.

Rougma manages all administrative aspects of the surgery as well as assists Dr Bugler during treatment. We cover all aspects of dentistry according to the patient’s need or wish. Referral to a dental specialist is also considered where it will be of benefit to our patient.
