This week, Dental Care Croatia was visited by a globe-trotting, yacht-crew, couple. Cyril, the French Captain and Lisa, both his partner and trusted, German, crew-mate.
Last time his boat was moored in Split, a little over a year ago, Captain needed a dentist, so his boat agent recommended Dr Marina and Dental Care Croatia.
Cyril had cervical, tooth defects. It was causing him sensitivity and some gum recession. We applied some dental fillings around the roots of his teeth. The treatment should last between 6 months and 3 years – back over a year later and Cappie says his sensitivity is gone and the fillings are still going strong.
He said “Dental standards in Croatia are the same as back home.” then he promptly added, “In fact, a little better than I remember, the last time in France.” I pointed out that as travellers of the seas, they must be brave when it comes to going to new places and facing the unknown. Captain laughed, “Not with dentists, it never gets easier with finding a good dentist.” So… happy with his find, Cyril is back with us… and he brought Lisa to us this time too.
Matie-love is having a couple of fillings replaced and a full, professional, teeth clean. Her teeth are beautiful and don’t need much else, but just like looking after a beautiful ship, meticulous maintenance is imperative…
