Dubai Sky Clinic
Located on the 21st floor in Burjuman Business Tower, the Dubai Sky Clinic has shaped its treatment rooms to align high quality dental care with your lifestyle. Each dental chair has access to a TV screen so you can be distracted by your favourite movie, or you can access a range of music so you can tune out during your treatment.
With 6 resident dentists coming from Germany, the US, France and Lebanon, you can be sure that they offer the latest treatments with a focus on excellence. Dubai Sky Clinic is open 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm.
The Dubai Sky Clinic has received 8 ‘Excellent’ ratings in the last year. Amanda says “They always put me at ease and do a fantastic job. All of the staff are very pleasant and welcoming, the booking process was very simple and you are always greeted with an amazing smile and welcome. Treatments were explained fully and different options discussed to meet my budget. Great team and fabulous surroundings.”
The Dental Spa
The Dental Spa is the first of its kind in the Middle East. Committed to transforming your beauty, health and wellness experience, it offers rejuvenating services in cosmetic dentistry, dermatology and chiropractic care, focusing on health and wellness in a spa-like environment.
The dental suites have been designed with comfort in mind. Soft music, warm scented towels, aromatherapy neck pillows and blankets are just a few of the extras that are provided for patients to promote a relaxing environment.
Located in Jumeirah, the clinic offers preventative care as well as advanced treatment options and with the 24-hour emergency care, they promise total peace of mind.
It seems that Aleena, resident in the UAE, agrees. She wrote an online review saying: “Handled my issues perfectly; come see the Dental SPA Dubai, you will love the wonderful staff! It was a relief to have instant and a wonderful treatment! You can get all Dentistry, Chiropractic, Dermatology and Laser hair removal in this clinic.”
The Smile Studio Dental Clinic
This small dental clinic is serviced by dentist Dr Saad Al Hakeem. The clinic is located in the Yes Business Centre in Al Barsha 1, and offers a selection of professional treatments and high quality dental care at affordable prices.
The lack of some of the additional fancy technologies and treatments that some of our other featured clinics offered, means that pricing is much more reasonable if you are budget-conscious. Unfortunately, they don’t have a website. Appointments can be booked by calling (+971) 4 456 3877.
The initial consultation is free, while cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening starts at about 900dhs. Fillings are determined by the size and difficulty, while more complicated treatments such as root canals are around 1000-1200dhs, while dental crowns are around 2000dhs.
The clinic also offers state of the art Invisalign braces, a new technique which substitutes the traditional braces with something (which as the name suggests) is almost invisible. This starts at around 18’000dhs.
So what do the patients say? Abdulla from the UAE says “I did the veneer procedure (Hollywood Smile). I have been going to The Smile Studio Dental Clinic for 2 years straight. Dr. Saad is very smart and his treatment is amazing. All the staff are very welcoming and the office is beautiful and cozy. Thank you doctor for the countless smiles.”
German Dental Oasis
Located in the heart of Dubai Health Care City, the German Dental Oasis is an expansion of a business model that has been a success in Germany for many years. They pride themselves on promoting a tranquil environment much like an oasis. Even their website has soft classical music playing in the background while you browse their online pages.
Offering services in Arabic and English, as well as German, Spanish and Russian, they cater with a significant effort to much of Dubai’s population to make you feel at home.
They have also partnered with 15 different insurance companies, so if you have dental care as part of your employee benefits, check online to see if you are covered. If not, then some of the more expensive treatments are available with a payment plan.
Eldha said about German Dental Oasis; “I was impressed when I saw the clinic had its own dental laboratory. The staff and doctors are also very good. It is a professional clinic in all ways.”
La Perla Dental Clinic
Located in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, this family clinic has a mission statement that says “It’s not a treatment, it’s a care”. This motto is consistently implemented by the dentists who work there, if the reviews are anything to go by. Anna says “Very prompt reply, friendly doctor. We were happy with the service.” While Shaan said “Excellent care and made me really comfortable as a nervous dental patient. Could not recommend them enough.”
Bookings can be made online although their website does not have the most up to date information with regard to the latest dentists who work there and their qualifications. If that’s something that’s important to you, ask them to send you this information prior to your consultation.
