One day we may be able to travel again in a much less restricted way, and should we head to the jewel of the Amwaj islands and Bahrain, dental issues, emergencies or simple cosmetic improvements can be swiftly dealt with.

2005 marked the beginning of Seef Dental, when Dr Azza Fityani, Dr Sameh Shaheen, Dr Roger El-Bassit and Dr Sami El-Bassit joined ventures and decided to meet the growing demand for professional dental services in Bahrain.

Their unique background of technical disciplines and quantifiable academic knowledge makes Seef Dental a multi-national team with exceptional skill. This single address covers cosmetic, restorative and orthodontic procedures, as well as endodontic and micro-endo surgery – typically a 30-45 minute surgery on the small and complex structure of the tooth root. Pathological changes can be assessed more precisely, and treatment of lesions has greater precision; thus minimising surgical tissue damage, and therefore recovery.

A website can give a global profile and maxillofacial surgery is also available at this clinic: the distinctive specialty that merges medical and dental science. This branch of surgery encompasses procedures that treat trauma and diseases affecting the head and neck: misaligned jaws, impacted wisdom teeth, implants, and injuries and cancers limited to that area.

One of the most relied upon dentists in Bahrain, Dr Ali Mattar has been a consultant since 1986 and his clinic, the Dr Ali Mattar Dental Centre – Consultants Group is responsible for many innovations in the dental industry within the Kingdom of Bahrain. Specialising in both paediatric and adult care, the corporate culture of this practice is anchored in commitment to superior quality and service, within the highest international standards.

Using state-of-the-art German technology and 3D printing, veneers, crowns, complicated fillings and replacements as well as implants can all be completed within a single appointment. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a method that allows this dental team to construct, produce, and insert ceramic restorations at the point of treatment rather than over multiple visits with lab work in between.

Orthodontics is a premier global dental treatment and high quality, cost effective services in a relaxed atmosphere can be found in Haffadh Specialised Dental Center. With world-class technology and dedicated dental specialists and consultants, HSDC is one of Bahrain’s best. From TMJ to tooth wear and periodontics, this clinic has been familiar to adults and children alike since 1999, and where Dr Munem Haffadh proudly states that smiles are his passion.

Aesthetica Dental Center is one of the new kids on the block, having been established in 2016, inaugurated by His Royal Highness Shaikh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Bin Salman Al Khalifa. With a marked social media presence, progressive and trendy orthodontics such as Invisalign are part of the services on offer. Invisalign has a 4-tier designation for its providers: Preferred, Premier, Premier Elite, and Diamond – being the top 1% worldwide.

When an orthodontic practice has achieved Diamond status, it is recognised as a top-level provider in achieving your dream smile. Aesthetica was the first to achieve that honour within the alliance of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman. Its very own principal, Dr Reem Al Shaiba received a Masters of Aesthetics and Restorative Dentistry in 2020 from the University of Manchester, making another first for this practice: the first Bahraini dentist to earn a degree in this field from this prestigious University. Dr Reem proactively pursues continuing professional development through training and certifications from dentistry leaders and innovators from around the world. Each of the three treatment rooms is fitted with the finest dental chair, its own unique and tranquil design motif, and scenic panoramic views.

There is no shortage of beauty in Amwaj and Bahrain, whether it be the sights, culture or climate. And there is certainly beauty within when healthy gums and a brilliant smile is what the world notices about you.
