Periodontology

I have been practicing periodontology (the study of the specialised system of hard (bone) and soft (gum) tissues that supports your teeth and maintains their position in the jawbone.)  for more than four years in Brussels at the Brussels Oral Implant Centre.

My Work involved non-surgical treatments;

  • Deep cleaning and scaling
  • Pocket reduction procedures
  • Dental crown lengthening
  • Regenerative procedures
  • Plastic surgery procedures
  • Crown Lengthening
  • Coverage of gingival recession

I am also a member of the European Federation of Periodontology.

Implantology

I am also a member of the “1000 Sourires du Maroc” organization, which every year helps hundreds of families in Morocco to undergo complex and expensive dental surgeries (mainly Implantology cases).

Aesthetic Dentistry

After three years of additional training, I graduated in 2015 from the “esthetische Tandheelkunde- UZVUB”(aesthetic dentistry in UZVUBBelgium). During those three years I had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of cases and to acquire new techniques when dealing with aesthetic dentistry.

Below you can find some of the work, including:

  • Full mouth rehabilitation of a patient with screw retained implant prosthesis
  • All ceramic crowns
  • Tooth Bonding after crown fracture or removal of old fillings
