Why choose Akadentia?
Akadentia is an ISO 9001 – certified Private Oral Dental Clinic in Ankara, Turkey, founded by two Professors with over 22 years of clinical experience working on the latest, state-of-the-art, medical equipment.
Strong Academic Background
The name “Akadentia” derives from “Akademeia” and best depicts our academic approach and strong academical background of our founders, Prof. Dr. Nilufer Tulin Polat, DDS, PhD, Prosthodontist, and Prof. Dr. Serkan Polat, DDS, PhD, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
International Quality Standards
We know that the quality of our services is up to the international standards. Because we trust in our quality and believe that quality is a life style, we were audited in the year of our opening, on 06.11.2018, by the IAF and DAkkS Member firm Nissert and awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certificate.
We are equipped with all the high-tech infrastructure and experience available in the world. We operate on brand-new state of the art equipment. Just to give you an idea, all the waters in the clinic are sterilized by UV; we have a magnetic water conditioner installed. All our radiography equipment is digital, we’ve got cone beam dental tomography, CAD/CAM, piezosurgery, diode lasers and many other great contemporary equipment. We are using the latest technologies in dentistry. See our Technical Factsheet for details.
Not just clean, sterile
All the hand pieces are cleaned and sterilized after each patient. All critical tools are cleaned in an ultrasonic device, packed and sterilized in the B class steam autoclave. We take sterilization seriously.
We are easy to reach
Another reason for international patients to choose Akadentia, is the easy to reach city of Ankara. There are direct flights from 25 cities, such as Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Koln, Stockholm, Medina, Doha, Moscow and direct flights from 10 cities in Germany. Every day the amount of direct flights grows.
Besides having serious academic background and clinical experience, our doctors actively participate in international projects and are aware of the latest developments and innovations in dentistry. Our orthodontist holds an Invisalign TM certificate and performs the modern approach along with classic approaches.
Wide spectrum of treatments
We perform the most popular treatments such as All-on-4, All-on-6, implants, Smile Design, Porcelain laminate veneers, and many more. At the same time, we perform such treatments as sinus lifting, bone grafting, impacted tooth extraction, coronectomy, temporomandibular joint arthrocentesis and other.
