Dentistry in Madrid: American-style

June 16th, 2011 | Posted by Erin in Erin | Health | Medical - (0 Comments)

I like my teeth. I’m especially reminded of that here where good dental care seems as hard to come by as my beloved crunchy peanut butter (I realize these two things probably don’t go well together). Lucky for me, and all of you, one of the world’s fanciest dental offices (IMHO), Clinica CLOE, is right here in Madrid. And it happens to be run by folks who know what they’re doing – American-style. With that in mind, Guiri Guide decided to find out more from one of the founders, Dr. Mya Choufani, so that we can help you keep your pearly whites, white.

What types of services do you offer at Clinica CLOE?
Clinica CLOE is a state-of-the-art dental practice where a US-trained team, including a leading Implant Specialist, Orthodontist, Cosmetic Dentist, Pediatric Dentist and Endodontist, all work from one office. In doing so, we provide patients with the highest quality, integrated and coordinated care. Our treatments range from smile makeovers, teeth whitening, aesthetic dentistry, orthodontics, implants, to simple fillings and routine hygiene cleanings and check-ups.

What makes your clinic different than other Spanish dental clinics?
The founders, Dr. Victor Begara and myself, as well as the rest of the team, are graduates of New York University College of Dentistry, Mount Sinai Hospital School of Medicine, Universidad Alfonso X El Sabio and La Universidad Europea de Madrid, where each one of us presently holds leadership positions teaching other dentists. CLOE represents the ultimate in multidisciplinary dental treatment providing the highest levels of dentistry – from the smallest fillings to the most complex smile makeovers and dental reconstructions – all in one Madrid dental office. Each of us takes pride in our work and the outcome of every treatment we perform, as well as making sure the patient’s experience is an enjoyable one.

What made you decide to open a clinic in Madrid and why Campo de las Naciones?
Since both Dr. Begara and I hold teaching positions at the Universidad Europea de Madrid, staying in Madrid was a MUST! Looking for the perfect location was NOT easy, but knowing exactly what we wanted, Campo de Las Naciones was the area that mostly fulfilled our demands: a quiet area, full of trees and lots of light! We want our patients to escape reality from the time they visit us to the time they leave. We make sure their experience is as stressless as possible. So, we start off the visit with offering each patient a Nespresso coffee, and the entire time in the dental chair, the patient is able to watch their favorite movie or TV Show, while the work is being performed.

Do you have any special deals?
We have a summer teeth-whitening special, which includes a 30% discount on the “Take-Home Treatment” or the “1-hour In-Office Treatment.”

Are your services covered by health insurance?
Yes, as long as it is an insurance that either covers dental services, or an insurance policy which has a dental reimbursement plan.

What type of clientele do you mostly treat?
Believe it or not, more than 50% of our patients are foreigners – all English speakers and a lot of French speakers as well since not only do I speak French fluently, but the office is located a few blocks from the Lycee Francais of Madrid.

How best to get to the clinic if you live in the city center?
Considering the office is located in an area with easy and free access to parking, coming by car is a convenient option. To come by public transportation, you can either take the metro to “Campo de Las Naciones,” or just use the EMT Bus System.
