I have more than 25 years of experience as a dentist in both the private and public sectors. I started my private clinic in Vaasa in 1995, but I moved back to Turku, where I completed my studies, in 2005. In addition to my specialty, I also provide basic dental care services, so you are very welcome to a regular check-up. If necessary, I will also assess the need and possibility for occlusal and prosthodontic treatment at the check-up.
I completed a specialised degree in clinical dental care in 2010. My principal specialties are prosthodontics and occlusal physiology and my area of expertise is the treatment of occlusal problems with crowns, bridges and/or partial and total prostheses. Implant treatment is also one of my areas of expertise and, after 10 years as a specialised dentist at the department of oral and maxillofacial diseases of Turku University Hospital, I can say that I have extensive experience in procedures ranging from the treatment of individual missing teeth to extensive treatment of the entire structure of the jaw and occlusal rehabilitation. I have also become familiar with repairing old implants and implants attached abroad, which makes my job even more interesting.
Issues with the temporomandibular joint, headaches and muscle tension, all frequently associated with occlusal issues, can often be treated with an occlusal splint. I will always assess the need to manufacture these splints during an examination. I can also treat patients who snore or suffer from sleep apnea with mouth devices designed for treating sleep apnea.
I maintain my expertise by participating in international training events and conferences. I am particularly interested in how digital solutions and 3D designs are applied in the treatment of occlusal issues.
I am a calm, attentive and careful dentist. I aim to pay attention to my customers’ special needs and wishes and discuss the treatment plan and the available alternatives with my customers in a comprehensive manner. Motto: “Well begun is half done” is an idiom that applies in dentistry as well.
Welcome to my practice!
