Slow Dentistry is a concept of work that is based on the amount of time spent in providing care for patients. This includes talking, educating about necessary procedures taking into consideration patients’ wishes and then performing the required therapeutic procedures that are over a period of time that allows for high-quality performance. This approach reduces the possibility of ‘surprises’ during procedures and helps reduce patient anxiety, which is already pronounced in dental surgeries.

Each patient enjoys an individually tailored approach where their wishes are listened to, treatment procedures are proposed and the best-possible sequences of procedures are explained to ensure the quality and durability of dental work. Speed is not a virtue if it contributes to reducing the quality of dental work.

This way of working also applies to hygiene procedures between each patient and the cleaning and disinfection of devices and space and the sterilisation of equipment. There is break between each patient that allows workplace hygiene and instrument sterilisation to be carried out in detail between patients.

The waiting room has been designed not only a space where patients can wait, but also as a space where patients and their companions can spend a pleasant and calming time.

This way of working enables us to dedicate more time for our patients and work in a pleasant environment with minimal stress. This provides benefits for both parties at a highly efficient level. … in simpler terms it means that one is not ‘rushed’, but rather one is able to deliver following the existing working principles:

‘I do what I like, in the way it should be done!’
