Praxisklinik Ruhrgebiet:
From 1994 with the 1st dental surgery in Mülheim with two dentists

In 1986, Drs. Raymond Metz laid the foundation stone for the practice clinic that is now known beyond Mülheim’s city limits. He opened his first own dental practice in Mülheim-Dümpten, designed according to the latest scientific findings.

In 1994 one of the first dental practices with several dentists was established there. With Drs. Metz, Dr. Michael Heller implements the vision of a highly specialised practice clinic whose services range from prophylaxis to an in-house dental laboratory to dental surgery under general anaesthesia. Their goal: highest quality in treatment and all dental services under one roof.

The advantages for the patient: safe and gentle care according to the latest findings, combined with personal on-site care by the dentist. Over the years, further dental specialists have been added: Patients benefit from a high degree of specialisation and the opportunity for dentists to consult with each other on which solution is best for the patient.
