Our philosophy is “Simply the Best!” Treatment usually starts with a systematic exam. We strive for clinical excellence when a simple, cost effective filling is needed, an all ceramic inlay or if complex crown- and bridge prostheses – with or without supporting implants are required. Particularly the success and the improvements in implant therapy have broadened our treatment spectrum considerably in the past few years.
Your advantage are clinical interventions that often cause only very little pain if any, swelling is minimal and healing times are shorter then ever. In brief this means a better service for you! We offer also dental treatment in our office in general anaesthesia in collaboration with a team of anaesthesiologists. Last but not least we offer a warranty for all treatment that you receive with us. To ensure everything described above for our patients we attend conferences and continuing education courses regularly. Often we are invited lecturers , which allows us to benefit from the clinical knowledge of colleagues worldwide and to offer our patients a better treatment with a continuously high level of quality.
