Dr. Roze makes dental appointments

Andrew Culbard, Peter McQuillan and Egle Vitaite join leading Dubai clinic; Dentists will play key role in clinic’s Fair Care Dubai CSR initiative

Dr Roze & Associates Dental Clinic, the leading dental clinic in Dubai, has strengthened its team with a number of key appointments.

Based on Jumeirah’s Beach Road, Dr Roze, which boasts 42 staff, including 12 dentists and three hygienists, provides a comprehensive range of dental services to both residents and visitors from overseas and uses the latest and most advanced technology to deliver the highest clinic standards in dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentists Andrew Culbard and Peter McQuillan have both joined from the United Kingdom; while Egle Vitaite, a Specialist Paediatric Dentist, has come on board from Lithuania.

Dr David Roze, Founder and Oral Surgeon, said: “Andrew, Egle and Peter are extremely competent dentists, with first-rate credentials. Their talent and experience will broaden still further our capabilities and of course our expertise.”

Dr Andrew graduated from the University of Glasgow Dental School in Scotland, before going on to pursue post-graduate training in a number of other dental specialities. Two years after graduating, he was awarded membership to the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

After graduating from the University of Glasgow in the UK with a Batchelor’s Degree in Dentistry, Dr Peter was honoured to receive the Tristan Manji Memorial Scholarship. He is an active member and previous Board Director of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and he directs ‘The Face Academy’, a prominent European school of facial aesthetics.

Dr Egle completed a Masters degree in Dentistry from the Lithuanian University of Health and Sciences. She continued her post graduate studies at Vilnius University, obtaining a specialist degree in Paediatric Dentistry and has worked as a paediatric dentist in both private and public practices in Europe. Dr Egle has also been extensively trained to work with patients with mental and physical disabilities, especially autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and is qualified to provide treatment under conscious sedation and general anaesthesia.

Dr Roze added: “We are committed to providing the very best care for our patients and, in order to do that, we must invest in the very best talent. There is a stringent process for anyone looking to join our team, with initial clinical cases followed up by a series of interviews, where we check not only clinical skills, but also personality, attitude and spirit.”

All three new appointments will be involved in the Fair Care Dubai CSR initiative, which was rolled out across the country last month.

The initiative, which promises equal treatment and equal service from the high-end dentistry, is open to residents in the UAE who are earning a monthly salary of AED3,500 or less and agree to a holistic approach to their treatment.

Patients only need to pay for 10% of their treatment and will be treated every Monday from 6pm to 8pm. An official application form to join the Fair Care Dubai initiative must be filled out before an appointment is booked. Applications can be made here.
