About us

History



The Clínica dentária d'avenida, was founded in 1984 by António Pereira and was always based on the interconnection between innovation and technology associated to high levels of health quality. Management has always involved the most advanced sterilization techniques, the use of innovative auxiliary means of diagnosis, individual x-ray chairs, etc.

In 1989 all the administrative area of the clinic was computerized: file management, clients and medical offices, planning programmes, and treatment registration, a reflection of an innovative attitude. 

In 1995, a new subsidiary was inaugurated in Matosinhos with the same concept of management and work based on the innovation and technologies available in the mother clinic in Vila Nova de Gaia. 

The growth of this health unit led to the need of dividing treatments by speciality. The investment was focused on three fields: adults, children, and surgery. Now, Clínica dentária d'avenida has in its team several specialities of dental medicine.

In 2001, Antonio Pereira took on the position of administrative director, and kept his clinical duties, and his son, Nuno Pereira, assumed the position of clinical director. Nuno Pereira is a post-graduate in implantology with a clinical residency of 2 years by the University of New York.

The Clínica dentária d'avenida keeps up with the new technological concepts by using last generation autoclaves, ultrasound, washing and sterilizing machine, panoramic and individual digital x-ray with doctor and patient monitoring, leaving behind films and developing solvents thus giving a step forward towards the preservation of the environment, to the quality of the scans and to reducing patient's radiation.

The clinic also has laser therapy for teeth whitening, surgical office for inhalation analgesia (conscious sedation) for cases like oral surgeries, treatment of troublesome children and anxiety and fear issues on adults.

After several years of experience, the Clinica dentária d'avenida shows its ability in providing services in its field of operation always targeted at the maximum satisfaction of its patients by providing high quality services and facilities. Thriving for the continuing improvement of its services, this organization is committed to quality applied to the entire clinic's structure.
