dental specialists have opened a dental clinic in Nicosia, a clinic of the
finest as I had the opportunity to experience. A clinic with the most modern high
tech equipment there is available on the market, a clinic that offers the
patient, young and old, the best service and comfort, a clinic that does all
the jobs in dentistry from A-Z.
founding members of the clinic are:
Dr. Ufuk Ateş, Oral and Dental Surgeon
Dr. Atakan Kalender, Restorative dentistry and endodontics
Dr. Oğuz Ozan, prosthontist, implantologist
pedodontist – child dentist – is available on appointment, also an orthodontist
doing corrective and cosmetic measures in dentistry.
Oğuz Ozan takes me around the clinic to explain the many services that patients
can expect. I am truly amazed, they cover everything in dentistry. The
technical equipment is by Siemens, the world leader in medical technology, the
best available right at the moment.
first thing, explains Dr. Oğuz, a new
patient is undergoing is a 3 D computerized tomography for the doctor to see
the problems and on a wide screen the patient can see for himself what is
wrong, a detailed information of the problem and the treatment plan follows.”
it is an eye opener to recognise one’s critical teeths situation on the wide
screen, bad fillings, infections at the root, unhealthy gum, and so on.
am shown the various individual treatment rooms, all wide open, no feelings of
being trapped; assistants clean the entire equipment after each patient’s
is also laser treatment available for pink aesthetic shaping”, Dr. Oğuz
continues, “cosmetic corrections, you know.... And here we have the children
treatment room and a play corner, to make the children feel comfortable, also a
TV set to distract them from what is going on in their mouth.” I am sure that children will be delighted to
be surrounded by Micky Mouse and Goofy and lie in the arms of such a chair.
I learn that for the fixed implantology they have a scanner for inter-oral
digital impression, that sort of picks up all details of your mouth to collect
data for the final computerized production of your final fixed prothesis or
bridge. I am impressed, that is new to me. The production can be done in one
is not all, says Dr. Oğuz, upstairs we have a meeting room for dentist courses,
with life surgery on volunteers, to keep local dentists up to date on advances
in technology and treatments.
have known Dr. Oğuz Ozan for many years, he has taken care of my dental problems
at the Dental Clinic of the Near East University where he is teaching at the
Dental Faculty. Also Dr. Atakan Kalender is still teaching there. Dr. Ufuk Ateş
is now retired from teaching and concentrates on his clinical work entirely.
wish the team of the new clinic good luck and wide acceptance. It is a
remarkable achievement for North Cyprus.
yes, what I still want to mention is, that the secretary will call you a day
before your appointment to make sure that you won’t forget it.
