Dr Flikier is known for treating each patient with individual care, knowing there is a different wants and needs for each one of his medical travel patients.

Digital radiography

With this exciting new technology instead of a trip to the developing tank, the dentist and patient can watch the pop up on a computer screen seconds after the device is inserted in to the patient’s mouth. The images are a higher resolution than film images and are stored in a computer memory, from which they can be easily retrieved combined and manipulated to supply more information. Most significantly patients are exposed to 1/10th the x-ray dosage typically delivered today.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Ultrasonic cleaning is a thorough and gentle way of removing tartar and plaque above and below the gum line. This mechanical device vibrates a small water-cooled metal tip that gently removes the unwanted deposits that build up on your teeth. This method is faster so more can be accomplished in an appointment. Hand instruments are a good follow-up to this treatment.

Beyond Whitening Accelerator

In just 60 minutes you can have beautiful white teeth. Our Accelerator cleans both the surface and the internal structure of the teeth. The cool-light tooth-whitening machine uses a narrow beam of high-intensity blue light with a wavelength of between 480 and 520 nanometers. A special optical process removes harmful infrared and ultraviolet light. A whitening fluid containing hydrogen peroxide and 20 nanometers silicon dioxide rapidly oxidizes the entire surface of all teeth in one short treatment, restoring them to a beautiful white. Using low temperature, cold light avoids irritation of the nerves of the teeth; it is a one-time treatment with no side effects, whitening the teeth for up to two years.

Lab Work 

State of the art technology and materials are used for the lab work. Dr Flikier personally supervised the work performed, and is in constant contact with the technician to ensure high quality restorations.

Sterilization Area

All health tourism services related to oral health maintenance, including hygienist services are strictly based upon IMS regulations for infection control.
