Awards & Certifications

As more and more expats, local international visitors, and patients from abroad visit our dental clinics, we at Smile Clinic are very aware of the increasing attention paid to issues such as the quality of treatment we can provide, as well as the international accreditation of our implantologist, endodontist, restorative dentists, dental hygienists and clinical team.

We therefore regularly update and increase the level of certifications, accreditation of our clinics, and also and operate a “Code of Practice for Medical Tourism”.

Our dental clinic has been certified to provide dedicated treatment for dental phobics.

As you can see from the hundreds of hand-written patient testimonials on our site, you will see that many of them are from patients who were previously dental phobics prior to undergoing dental treatment.

It is our ongoing goal to ensure that our patients have pain-free dentistry techniques and services used wherever possible.

  • Hello,
    My name is Merrily and I have been recommended to you by a friend. I am enquiring the cost of treatment for airport collection and delivery at the end of treatment and accommodation. I think I would need:

    3 implants
    14 zirconium porcelain crowns on the upper jaw
    10 zirconium porcelain crowns on the lower jaw

    I have 7 teeth top right with a gap between 1and 3 = 6 teeth intact
    I have 7 teeth top left with a gap between 1 and 3 number 5 is missing = 5 teeth intact
    I have 4 teeth lower right. Number two is falling out and 5,6,7 is missing = 4 intact
    I have 5 teeth lower left 5 and 6 is missing = 5 intact

    Im not sure if I need to replace the gaps on the top jaw between 1 and 3 left and right. My two front teeth protrude and I was hoping maybe a bridge would solve the gap problem while replacing the two protruding teeth or another solution.

    Merrily Addison
