Dr. Mahsa Khaghani is Ambassador in Spain of this non-profit and international organization based in Switzerland, committed to promoting continuous quality improvement for advanced patient care. As part of the Foundation for Excellence in Dentistry, Slow Dentistry Global Network® is a voluntary profession-led movement, founded by two passionate advocates for ethics in the dental industry and patient wellbeing, Miguel Stanley and Nina Blaettler-Rosa da Silva.
Dentistry is being taken over by financially driven practices and there are a growing number of clinics that seem to focus only on the “bottom line” and as such see the largest amount of patients possible a day, putting themselves and their patients at risk.
SLOWDENTISTRY® is aimed at creating a global network of like-minded dentists, dental surgeons, clinicians, practice managers or small business owners and hygienists that want to distinguish themselves from their peers in their region by committing to practising a form of dentistry that is patient centric in terms of hygiene and safety. For that 4 very simple and universally accepted cornerstones were created that could be applied in any country, under any circumstance and requiring no technology or special training. The premise was for it to be able to be as ubiquitous as possible and allow the biggest number of members to join. We believe that Dentists that practice these 4 simple cornerstones , taught in every school around the world, care a little bit more for themselves, their team and their patients and as such, practice higher standards of care. They are different than those that focus simply on filling out paperwork, and doing treatments just to make profit. A SLOWDENTISTRY® Clinic usually works with less stress and is more profitable in the long run.
