Speaker's Biography

Prof. Gerhard Steenkamp

Professor Gerhard Steenkamp completed his BVSc degree in 1994 from the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Veterinary Science at Onderstepoort, after obtaining his BSc (Zoology) at the same institution. He completed the inaugural course in dentistry offered through the European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies in 1998. After 3 years in Europe, he returned to Onderstepoort where he has been the head of the Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic ever since. Gerhard did his MSc on the clinically relevant morphometrics of African elephant tusks and recently completed his PhD on structure, development and pathology of the cheetah maxillofacial complex.

In 2017, Gerhard became a founding member of the Certificate in Zoo and Wildlife Dentistry under the auspices of the American Veterinary Dental College. His research interests include developmental dentistry and maxillofacial surgery of non-domesticated species as well as maxillofacial pathology and surgery of domestic species. He has lectured in many parts of North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. Gerhard has published 50 peer reviewed papers, authored or co-authored 5 book chapters and has delivered more than 50 international conference presentations.

In 2020, Gerhard was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for his contribution to Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery for wildlife and in particular his work on elephants.


He is married to Sonja, an oral pathologist, and they have two kids, Natanya and Marinus.
