We value academia in order to enrich our skills as dental professionals. We list the awards which have been given to us on a professional level (not by attending short education courses) where our profession has acknowledged our contribution to Dentistry. These awards have been given to us by Universities, International Dental Associations and generally people who know a lot about Dentistry and its advances.
We are proud to be a fully accredited dental practice in line with the NSQHS Standards.
