Dentists with Medical Background

30 years ago in Spain, being a dentist was only possible if you had previously studied medicine. In fact, dentistry was a speciality that physicians could choose once they finalized their medical studies (just like neurology, cardiology and much others). In 1986 Spain joined the EEC (European Economic Community) and it was forced to regulate professions according to EU directives. One of the implications of this regulation was the creation of the Official Degree in Dentistry which is now totally independent from the Degree in Medicine.

Why is this important?

The reason, is because the medical education recieved by the founders and Medical Directors of Abaden Dental Group was the inspiration for the working philosophy and methodology used nowadays at our centers.

The daily Clinical Case Consultation is the most critical point of this working methodology. Like in most first quality Hospitals, in our dental offices we conduct a daily analysis of all the complex clinical cases we have. In these case consultations, our group of professionals (from different specialities and ages) jointly analyse the best solution/s for each patient. This system allows us to have the highest possible success rate for each case.

Another important aspect our Dental Directors gained during their years working as medical doctors, was the importance of collaboration with doctors from other specialities. The implementation of this collaborative methodology to the dental field was not easy, but at the same time has provided enormous advantages to our patients.

After years of experience we are proud to say that we now do combinated treatments in just one day with full guaranted success thanks to two key factors:

  1. A team of professionals with expertise in all Odontology areas (Cosmetic dentistry, implantology, Orthodontics, Periodontics, ..) and in-house medical anesthesiologists
  2. The utilization of CAD-CAM technology (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing in dentistry) allows us to build and lute the restoration of the dental piece the same day of the operation. (Conventional prosthesis, such as crowns, have temporaries implanted from one to several weeks while a dental laboratory or in-house dental lab produces the final restoration.)
