Welcome to the London odonto team of excellence
an association of internationally (French-American-British) trained and
established doctors (surgeons, dentists & specialists) who have competence in the
fields of dentistry and cranio maxillofacial surgery.
If your problem is situated within this realm, then you will definitely find the appropriate answer to your
question by consulting our doctors.
Oral and dental problems are seldom isolated and often can be misdiagnosed for other ailments stemming from
neighboring structures. This is why it is so important to be part of a team
including excellent dental, medical and surgical doctors. It is not unusual to
see sinus infections linked to dental root infections, muscular tension or
TMJ dysfunctions coinciding with cervicalgia which require osteopathic
treatment, or eye-, heart- or brain-vascular accidents associated with
focal infections of dental origin.
Whereas European Health Systems are basically oriented toward social medical care hence unable to provide top-notch
dentistry, there do exist some excellent private and truly dedicated dentists and surgeons who have acquired the international level
of competence required to deal with the most demanding patients. A number
of them in the past have trained in American dental schools for several
years where they have gained an
experience in treating difficult clinical cases, or done research in leading
leading European Dental schools and Hospitals can also provide post-graduate students
with excellent dental education, as it is the case with the
famous Clinic of Cranio-maxillofacial surgery of the University of Zurich
founded by Professor
Hugo L. Obwegeser, the
departments of Periodontics and
Orthodontics at the Guys Hospital in London, or the department of
Endodontics of the Eastman Dental Institute in London run by Professor
of the odonto dental team, all went through such a selective process and are
proud today to offer our competence and our dedication to the public residing in Europe.
Why did we decide
to address expatriates in particular. The answer is that many of them may
need urgent high quality care but did not have the time or did not know how to research in
their new community the fine practitioners
available. Also, they may come from
countries where the standards of Dentistry may be higher than in Europe and
they want to get here the same high-quality dentistry as they were used to
receive from their home dentists. Another good reason to trust odonto
doctors relies on their multi-lingual talents. Altogether, 8 major
languages are spoken within the team.
Our group is
unique and we are only presenting ourselves as we really are - not showing off self-styled competence. Our CVs are here to carry evidence of our
qualifications and can be checked at any time.
practical standpoint, Dr Jean-Jacques Dupuis, a general dental
practitioner who received specialist trainings in the US and in Europe in
prosthetics, endodontics and implantology, currently sees patients in London, UK, and in Paris 8eme, France. As
of November 2007, these two practices should be a mere 2h15mn-Eurostar-train-ride
apart. Dr Dupuisfs long
time involvement in dentistry makes him the ideal doctor by whom to be seen
first in order to get a precise diagnosis or evaluation before receiving any kind of
treatment either from himself or from his odonto colleagues .
He should be able to treat almost any
form of pain or infection that may have brought you to us and then take the
time to go more in depth to assess your oral and dental condition
in order to propose an esthetic, restorative or prosthetic (fixed,
removable or implant-borne) solution to your problems.
a tradition in the US, Dr Dupuis does not have a dental hygienist and will rather do his patients' prophylaxis himself as it is an
excellent opportunity to evaluate the tissue response to surgical treatments he might consider
His first task will probably be to suggest
a cleaning, take a couple impressions and x-rays unless he
prefers to send you to a radiologist for an OPG or a CT Scan.
come the time for a real debate about your case if it is a complex one, or
just a short appointment to fix the problem if it was a minor thing that
brought you to the office.
you, by his standards, a small
cavity is no trifle, knowing that a poor restoration can create lots of damage to the
treated tooth, its neighbors or to their periodontal environment. This is
why he may surprise you in telling you that two appointments plus some laboratory work in between will be
needed to fix the problem.
hdentistryh is to America what ghaute cuisineh is to France. It takes time and caution to be performed according to the highest standards. Today, many are lured by low-cost dentistry as offered in emerging eastern
countries and think it may be worth trying! Trying a hamburger at a cheap
fast food restaurant may be acceptable as it will be soon digested.
Botched dentistry may have more dramatic and lasting consequences. Not
mentioning the fact that the outcome for dental work that has to be redone will always get lower
statistics than success at first try. For instance a root-canal treatment
performed on a non-infected tooth by a competent dental specialist will reach a high 95%
success rate. For a failing previously treated root-canal which needs retreatment
the odds will at best be 75%, if you are lucky enough that no root perforation or instrument breakage occurred. Why is
quality dentistry so important to American people?
it has been a tradition for over a century to seek good dental care
probably because Americans always have had a need for a strong and healthy
body to lead their adventurous lives and because saying hello is
customarily accompanied by a broad white smile. In an image-based society where communication prevails, a nice smile is the best communication tool you may have. If you got
bored reading these lines, then maybe you donft need odonto services!
But if you
didn't and even want to know more about us and how to keep a good oral
health for many years to come, then maybe you want to go on through the process of having a few
X-rays or an OPG taken to allow us to give you a thorough diagnosis and
alternative treatment plans to enhance your teeth appearance.
done, you will receive a quotation or will be sent to the specialist most
competent to complete the diagnosis and/or perform a specialist treatment. For cranio
maxillofacial surgery or oral pathology Dr Henri Thuau (London W1B 1QN)
will be the right person.
For periodontal diagnosis and treatment Dr Alain Sidi ( London W1B 1QN) is the
specialist we all unquestionably rely on .
If you want your teeth orthodontically realigned or need to have complex treatments, including orthognathic surgery, Dr Anna Gibilaro is a whiz.

email and even write to us in
Arabic, Japanese, Greek, German, Italian or Farsi.
