All dental medical services, including diagnostics, treatment planning and treatment, are provided in the same location, implementing the highest sanitary and safety standards, in our state-of-the art dotDent Dental Clinic in the town of Matulji (in the vicinity of Rijeka and Opatija). We are qualified and equipped to perform various dental services at the highest quality levels – preventive, conservative, pediatric and cosmetic (teeth whitening…) dentistry, endodontic and periodontal treatments, prosthetic dentistry and surgery with emphasis on implantology.

Those days when you feared your dentist’s appointment are now gone! All procedures are painless with the possibility of sedation prior to major interventions. 

Services at the highest level:

  • Oral surgery

    Oral surgery

    Most common procedures in oral surgery are tooth extraction, surgical removal of wisdom teeth, apicoectomy (root-end resection), bone leveling (leveling bone structure before procedure), sinus lift (sinus floor augmentation that provides better conditions for implant-prosthetic rehabilitation)...

    NEW! PRF accelerated healing method

    PRF is an abbreviation for "Platelet-Rich Fibrin“ which is derived from the patient's blood and is primarily used in oral surgery for better healing of bone and soft tissue. It serves as an ideal preparation for surgical procedures that precede implants as well as for all regenerative procedures in implantology.

    The process begins by taking the patient's blood, which is then separated by centrifugation in the foreseen machine. After the tooth extraction, we place fibrin and plasma in its place, which serves us to speed up the healing process in the majority of interventions in oral surgery and implantology.

    When we activate it, growth factors go out of the platelets and stimulate the creation of new blood vessels, hence the growth of new bone in bone defects. Consequences are better oxygenated tissue. PRF is a completely harmless method because only patient blood is used without any other supplements and we recommend it to all patients in the surgical protocols.

  • Pediatric dentistry / nitrous oxide inhalation sedation

    Pediatric dentistry / nitrous oxide inhalation sedation

    It is important for children to visit a DMD from early childhood. Through regular and relaxed visits they overcome fear, build trust in their dentist and acquire the habit of proper maintenance of oral hygiene.

    We provide all pediatric and preventive dental services such as treating baby teeth, plaque control and removal, functional and esthetic treatment of traumatized teeth... Prevention is also of utmost importance in pediatric dental medicine, which ensures and monitors the growth and development of children’s teeth.

    Keeping our little patients in mind, we were one of the first in Croatia to introduce the nitrous oxide inhalation sedation for children.This safe and harmless method helps the little ones to overcome their fear and to erase their trauma, so their dental problems can be easily solved.

     Nitrous oxide is administered mixed with oxygen, inhaled through a special nasal mask. The dose is adapted for each patient according to individual needs and patient remains awake during the sedation and is able to communicate. Nitrous oxide cannot cause deep sedation.

    The study of the Federal Association of Pediatric Dentists found only 8 cases of side effects (i.e. nausea) among 7145 sedations in a year. It was the only side effect which happened in merely 0,11% of the cases. Untill the June 2015 sedations will be carried out under the supervision of the anesthesiologist.

    How does it work?

    For all dental procedures the minimal dose of nitrous oxide is sufficient to: 

    • Remove fear and discomfort and cause comfort
    • Relax the patient and increase his suggestibility
    • Minimize the gag reflex
    • Reduce the feeling of passing of time
    • Diminish the trauma caused by the procedure

    Bigger dose of nitrous oxide:

    • Decreases the sensitivity to pain
    • Causes cheerfulness and euphoria

    Who are the ideal candidates?

    • Patients who suffer from dental phobia or dental anxiety
    • Patients who have a poor gag reflex
    • Patients who require extensive or involved dental procedures
    • Cooperating children who require extensive procedures
    • Uncooperative children

    Who is not eligible?

    • Patients with severe health problems
    • Patients who cannot breathe through their nose
    • Patients who are afraid of losing control
    • Patients who have trouble with communication

    • Patients who suffer from claustrophobia

  • Cosmetic dentistry

    Cosmetic dentistry

    A beautiful bright smile is the best indicator of health and appearance. Modern dentistry can help greatly in obtaining such a smile. Cosmetic dental medicine is an interdisciplinary branch that combines almost all fields of dentistry. Today, cosmetic dentistry has been developed to perfection. The most common cosmetic interventions: 

    ·  Teeth whitening is a routine procedure which no longer damages the teeth and dental tissue; it takes about an hour inside a dentist’s office and the result is visible instantly. There is another, gentler and safer, option for your teeth to be bleached at home using a small plastic dental tray.

    ·  Veneers are commonly used for enhancing stained, gapped, chipped or irregular teeth. Ceramic laminates are ultra-thin and permeable to natural light so their color imitates perfectly the natural enamel. They are adhesively bonded onto the front surface of teeth and can be used to alter the shape, size, position and color of natural teeth, correct orthodontic irregularities or replace old composite fillings. 

    ·  Dental jewelry is glued onto tooth surface using special methods without damaging the enamel.

    ·  Inlays, onlays, overlays are esthetic replacements used in cases of more serious damage to the dental crown, when there is not sufficient dental tissue to use a composite filling, and yet the damage to the tooth is still not so serious as to require a dental crown. These replacements are made from ceramic and their appearance imitates the natural enamel perfectly.

  • Implantology


    Regardless of the reason that has led to tooth loss (trauma, periodontal disease, fracture, missing from birth) dental implant is the best option and a permanent solution for tooth replacement. Dental implant is placed into the jaw and serves as an anchor for crowns, bridges or dentures, without the need for filing the adjacent teeth for support. With their appearance and position, the implants match perfectly the natural teeth roots, they feel natural, prevent loss of bone tissue and protect the surrounding teeth.

  • Prosthodontics


    Prosthodontics is a branch of dental medicine that has seen its biggest breakthrough with the development and application of new technologies and materials which have led to perfection in the functionality and esthetics of prosthetic implants. Prosthodontics is basically concerned with the substitution of lost teeth by crowns, bridges and full or partial prostheses, where prosthetic substitutes can be mobile or fixed. Mobile dentures offer several ways for placement/removal carried out by the patient himself, while fixed prostheses are non-removable crowns or bridges which are bonded with cement. 

  • Periodintics


    Periodintics is a branch of dentistry dealing with the diseases that affect the supporting structures of teeth – and these are most commonly gingivitis (inflammation of the gum-tissue) and periodontitis (pyorrhea). Next to caries, periodontitis is the most common inflammatory disease today. It starts as gingivitis, progressing to inflammation of alveolar bone, and subsequently loss of teeth.  Although the disease is extremely progressive, there is a treatment that enables preservation of the remaining teeth in the jaw.

  • Endodontics


    Endodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry concerned with root canal therapy, that is dental pulp. When bacteria penetrate the inside of a tooth, dental pulp inflammation occurs resulting in severe pain. It is extremely important to treat the tooth properly so as to avoid many potential future complications such as cysts, granuloma, swelling, etc.   

  • Anti-aging treatments

    Anti-aging treatments

    PRF in face aesthetics (vampire face lift)

    PRF is the latest technology by which stem cells and growth factors are isolated from the blood of the patient. They are then injected into the subcutaneous tissue where they stimulate the formation of new blood vessels and collagen-rich connective tissue. The result is an improvement in the skin structure by reducing the wrinkles caused by the loss of the collagen as one of the aging processes. On the other hand, the skin becomes healthier in appearance due to the improvement of its vascular system.

    The procedure is quick and easy. The doctor takes a small amount of blood (about 20 mL) from the patient, then using special technology to separate the blood cells to get only a substrate rich in growth factors and stem cells that have the ability to create new tissue. The insulated substrate is then applied with small needles to the desired area in the form of classic mesotherapy or in the form of linear filling of the wrinkles.

    Hyaluronic dermal filer

    Hyaluronic dental fillers have become the gold standard for the last ten years when it comes to filling wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance that plays a very important role in building the extracellular space of our skin by raising the water balance as well as healing because it provides good hydration.

    Botox Facial Wrinkle Therapy

    Botox (in Europe known as Vistabel) is a natural purified protein produced by Clostidium botulinum bacterium, which has been used in medicine for the past decade. It is a simple, non-surgical treatment of wrinkle removal in the upper third of the face performed by doctors at our Polyclinic, and treatment is painless and lasts for only a few minutes.
