Permanently expand knowledge through valuable professional experience and further training with renowned experts.

True to the motto: „Nobody knows everything, but many know more.“
In this way, I always keep my patients up to date with the latest developments in dental science.

Dentist / Odontólogo Col. 899

It is very important to me not to stand still and to always remain open to suggestions and new techniques. It is not without reason that there are sayings such as: "A rolling stone gathers no moss" and "Nothing has to be this way just because it has always been this way".

Through my many interested years as a dentist, I have gained a lot of valuable professional experience in all areas of dentistry for you. In order to permanently expand and train my knowledge, I consider regular further education, congresses & webinars with various experts in dentistry to be indispensable.

In the meantime, renowned medical forums for the exchange of experiences have become just as important. (Dental) medical journals of the DGZMK and the (Federal) Dental Association are also part of this.

Until 2007, I held honorary positions in Germany at the Kassenzahnärztliche Vereinigung (KZV) Hamburg and Zahnärztekammer (ZÄK) in the areas of patient counselling, performance auditing and in the expert system, among others.

Professional career


Together with my wife I set up my own dental clinic on the Canary Island of Tenerife in Puerto de la Cruz in 2007.

Dental Clinic in Hamburg city centre (1992 - 9/2007)

In 1992 I founded a new dental clinic in Hamburg city centre. At that time I was the youngest dentist in Germany. It was a modern, successful dental clinic with two treatment rooms, a prophylaxis room and many nice patients. At the end of September 2007, it was with a heavy heart that I handed over my patients into the hands of my successor.

Assistant Dentist (1990-1992)

This was followed by the two obligatory years as an assistant dentist for the statutory health insurance licence. In order to gain an insight into dental clinics practising in different ways, I changed my position in the second year of my residency.

I spent the first year of my residency in the Hamburg area and the second year in Hamburg. In the second year I worked in an appraiser dental clinic, so I gained my first insights into appraisal work here.

Study of dentistry & dental licence to practise (1984 - 1989)

After successfully completing my studies in dentistry at the University of Hamburg from 1984 to 1989, I obtained my licence to practise dentistry in 1990.

In addition to my dental licence, I am also trained as a dental technician. This enables me to give dental technicians the most precise working instructions for my "specifications" and (in particularly urgent cases) to carry out dental prosthesis repairs myself in my own small laboratory.

Dental clinic philosophy

Praxis-Einrichtung – Modernes Wohlfühlambiente

Dental clinic equipment - Modern feel-good ambience

I have "only" one treatment room, so I can give my patients my full attention. My dental clinic CLÍNICA DENTAL BOTÁNICO is technically modern and hygienically equipped to the latest standards.

You can expect the most up-to-date instruments and the latest equipment available on the dental market, so that an optimal and gentle treatment can be carried out. 

Dental Clinic Hygiene

It goes without saying that we comply with the very latest EU hygiene requirements.

Treatment - My goal is tooth preservation

In my many years of professional experience, I have been particularly concerned with tooth preservation because I believe that one's own tooth is always the "better" tooth.

My treatment focus is tooth preservation. This includes: Check-ups with scaling, education on how to avoid dental diseases and advice on how to treat them, high-quality fillings with the greatest possible protection of the tooth substance, root canal treatments, gum treatments, dental prostheses (all types of care from simple inlays - ceramic or gold - to elaborate dental prostheses on implants), normal dental surgery, and also the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders.

Appointment management - for relaxed treatments

In order to be able to carry out optimal treatments for each patient, we only work by telephone appointment. Alternatively, you can also send us your appointment request by e-mail.
