When we face a health problem, we usually feel very vulnerable. Even more vulnerable when we are in a foreign country where we don’t speak the native language. If sometimes we cannot understand doctors in our own country, imagine when they speak a different language!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful we can find a dentist able to understand us when we are on holidays and we face a dental problem?
Obviously, it’s impossible our team speaks every language in the world, but, as Artedental Clinic is placed in Puerto de la Cruz, one of the most popular touristic destinations in Tenerife, we are almost forced to manage other languages apart from Spanish.
Artedental’s team is composed by doctors, technicians and assistants from different countries. Besides Spanish, most part of the team speaks English fluently. Furthermore, some members of our team are from Germany, working both in the clinic and in our in-house laboratory.
In Artedental, as we are specialists in Implantology, we attend many dental tourists. It’s really important for us being able to understand foreign patients not only when they are still in their countries, but also when they arrive and leave, to make sure everything is alright after the treatment. Whenever we attend patients who don’t speak Spanish, English or German and they need a complete rehabilitation, we look for a translator.
Our clinic is also a Training Centre for different techniques, destined to odontologists and dental technicians from all over the world. During these clinical stays, except when participants are Spanish speakers, the language we usually speak is English.
