Dr Zeljko Popadic´s surgery (DIC's surgery) is situated in the centre of Rovinj, a picturesque Istrian town in Croatia.  The Istrian peninsula is less than an hour's drive from Italy and 2 hours from Austria and is also easily accessible from Germany, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and other countries.  Here it is possible to combine a cultural and restful holiday with dental treatment.

Their goal is to give their patients the best possible treatment at the highest world standard, and they are capable of it.  Their prices are significantly lower than those in many European countries, especially Ireland and UK.


The Implantoprosthetic centre is the referring centre for Nobel Biocare and Astra Tech Implants systems and is also qualified for the appliance of these implant systems and procedures.

Dr Popadic, a member of the Nobel Biocare Mentor Team regularly updates his knowledge and skills and ensures that he is competent in the most demanding implantoprosthetic and surgical techniques, necessary for the quality of treatment and the entire rehabilitation of the patient.  As part of the  Mentors Program the surgery organises basic and advanced courses to educate other dentists in implantoprosthetic techniques and also visit other practices giving them support and help.


The surgery is equipped with up-to-date and sophisticated technology and has three dental units available, all computerised.  Therefore, diagnostics, treatment planning and the treatment itself, whether it is implantoprosthetic, conservative, orthodontic, prosthetic or aesthetic, are set to the highest standards.


Whether it is a filling or a crown, root canal or a bridge, an implant or tooth whitening, they will always do their best to give you a splendid and healthy smile.
