Ozge Erbil Maden

Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry | GDC No. 271459
BDS (TUR) ORE (UK)

Ozge Erbil Maden

My dream of being a dentist started at the age of 6 when I visited my dentist and I graduated from one of the most prestigious dental schools in Turkey; Istanbul University Dental Faculty in 2005 and started my career with a valuable six months internship in a practice where I could learn every aspect of aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry thanks to highly experienced and respected clinicians that I worked with. I have been applying one of the most important learnings from this internship: being patient-centred.

My passion for being a gentle dentist guided me to focus on using lasers to support almost all general dental treatments since 2008 and in addition to using lasers, my interest in providing smile make-overs for my patients motivated me to provide more cosmetic dentistry and restorations for implants as I realised it is very important for people to smile with confidence! I am designing smiles more than 10 years now; taking into consideration of my patient's needs and applying minimal invasive dentistry techniques such as tooth whitening, bonding, almost invisible orthodontic aligners and very thin ceramic veneers. I am improving my skills and knowledge by trained in a one year comprehensive Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry course provided by highly valuable UK based clinicians.

I believe in strong communication is the key to solve problems so would love to have a chat to get to know each other better. It would help a lot to tailor treatments to your need while explaining you the whole treatment options in detail so you can feel as relaxed as possible.
