Two of Scotland’s leading dentists have opened one of the country’s most advanced treatment centres, with an investment of £750,000.
Lubiju offers the ambience of a five-star hotel combined with most hi-tech treatment techniques and equipment available in cosmetic dentistry.
Doctors Biju Krishnan and Lubino do Rego have already created a respected UK centre of excellence, The Scottish Dental Implant Centre, in part of their Drake Dental Practice, which is open to NHS patients.
Now they have opened Lubiju at Commercial Quay to concentrate on adopting and developing the most advanced techniques in cosmetic dentistry.
Dr Krishnan said: “We’re really excited about the possibilities at the new practice. Scotland has a patchy dental record and we are now at the leading edge of bringing the best new techniques and technology into the country.
“We are looking at everything from the most advanced implants and surgical methods, to breakthroughs in needle-free and painless treatments and also the most up-to-date cosmetic dentistry.
“On top of that we have also recognised the growing respect, understanding and awareness of complementary therapies and are incorporating holistic and natural treatments along with the latest that medical science has to offer.”
The practice itself boasts two plush consulting rooms, an X-ray area which was created using a ton of lead and a state-of-the-art sterilisation room, known as a Local Decontamination Unit.
It is also fitted out with three state of the art treatment suites, each with a designer flat screen TV on the ceiling, so patients can watch DVDs during longer treatments such as laser tooth whitening.
Each suite is also equipped with powerful, hi-tech, ceiling-mounted cameras, which can film surgical and cosmetic procedures to be beamed to specialist audiences elsewhere in the practice – or anywhere in the world – for training and teaching purposes.
Lubiju also has its own dedicated massage and complementary therapy treatment room, with expert staff who also provide alternative health advice, relaxation and beauty treatments, non-surgical facelifts and other rejuvenation and detox treatments.
It is also building a reputation for attracting Europe’s leading alternative medicine practitioners who are renowned for successes in treating serious conditions from infertility and irritable bowel syndrome to diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
Dr Krishnan said: “There is nowhere else in Scotland – and very few centres in the UK – which offer this unique blend of advanced medical treatments and the very best in alternative therapies.
“It means we literally treat the mind, the body and the spirit and in every area we seek out the highest calibre international experts and the best equipment to do that.”
