Good health starts in the mouth!

Dear patients, dear prospective patients,

the famous doctor Sebastian Kneipp once said: "If you don't find time for your health, one day you'll have to sacrifice a lot of time for illness."

At the DPU Dental Clinic in Krems, the patients are the focus and they receive holistic and sustainable dental treatments tailored to their individual needs based on the latest science, modern techniques and the principle of minimally invasive therapy (minimal intervention).

We offer our patients 52 state-of-the-art treatment rooms from DENTSPLY SIRONA, an operating theatre, a digital practice and imaging technology, i.e. x-ray equipment for the production of panoramic tomograms (orthopantomograms) and digital volume tomograms.

Our clinic offers patients the unique opportunity to be cared for by dentists in training (candidati med. dent.) under the supervision of professors, senior doctors and medical assistants, on particularly favourable terms. Professional tooth cleaning and examinations (without x-ray) are available, for example, at EUR 17.93 each (as of January 2021).

Caring and empathetic treatment of the patients by the dentists in training and the entire clinic team is one of the most important cornerstones of the DPU Dental Clinic in Krems, true to the motto: A dentist should be a 'people person'!

As chief physician, I'm responsible for all organisational treatment processes and therefore a significant part of the quality assurance at the DPU Dental Clinic in Krems. Thanks to my 30 years of professional experience as a dentist in Austria and my role as Vice President of the Lower Austrian Dental Association, I know what's important for a medical institution.

In addition to our team of renowned professors and other medical staff, it is also important that our assistants (e.g. dental assistants and sterilisation assistants) are optimally trained so that we can ensure the best possible work processes, all of which have been validated according to specified guidelines, in the context of patient care. Regular certified advanced training courses by the Austrian Dental Association are essential and provide motivation for practising the profession. For example, our Head of Sterilisation has the highest level of training (level III) in sterile preparation.

The hygiene of our entire dental clinic is controlled and monitored by an external hospital hygienist. The optimal maintenance of our technical equipment is guaranteed at the DPU Dental Clinic in Krems. A well-coordinated product network and a smooth cooperation with our in-house dental technician laboratory, which is under the direction of a master dental technician, are key success factors.

Our external Quality Assurance Advisory Council, which meets twice a year and consists of Univ.-Prof. MR HR Dr. Robert Fischer, Chairman, Dr. Gerald Bachinger, (University Council) Dr. Brigitte Ettl, Univ.-Prof. Dr. Margrit-Ann Geibel MME, Univ.-Prof. Dkfm. Dr. Eugen Hauke, Mag.  Roland Schaffler and Dir. Robert Wagner MA, provides meaningful feedback from specialists from various professions in the healthcare sector for our work, which supports our motto of "striving for perfection".

Weekly patient consultations for feedback directly with me allow positive and negative experiences to be given top priority and patient-oriented solutions can be found where necessary.

DPU has committed itself to "lifelong learning" and wants to continuously improve for the benefit of its patients. We would like to thank our large patient base for their loyalty and trust: since opening the DPU Dental Clinic in Krems in autumn 2012, we have already treated many thousands of patients, most of whom come from Lower Austria and the neighbouring states.
