As the long-time former Director of the Department of Dental Prosthetics at Aachen University Hospital, Prof. Spiekermann brought a wealth of experience and competence in the fields of implantology and prosthetics with him to the Dental Clinic. He passed away on 30 Sept. 2009. The whole team at the Dental Clinic mourns the loss of such an outstanding personality and specialist, who, as a teacher, a mentor, a colleague, a manager and a friend, did so much to shape and enrich our practice. We will always be grateful for the time we spent together.
The range of therapy offered is extended by further colleagues specialised in paedodontics, aesthetic dentistry and modern techniques of root-canal treatment. Along with close orthodontic-surgical cooperation, the spectrum of services in our Dental Clinic is rounded off by a specialist in dermatology who deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin of the face and the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. For patients suffering from mandibular joint complaints, supplementary therapy by a physiotherapist / osteopath is also available in the Dental Clinic.
Since the dentists are both active as trainers, the Dental Clinic is also a venue for training seminars for dentists. This ensures that the dental treatment provided here is truly state-of-the-art. It is the only practice in the greater Aachen area where implantology training for dentists in the curricular frameworks of the DGI/APW takes place.
