14th February 2016, Dubai, UAE: Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, the leading and most advanced dental health care provider in the region, is proud to welcome Dr. Walter Goriwoda, MD, DMD to its team of dental experts.

Dr. Walter Goriwoda is a well-published Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who brings to Dr. Michael’s his many years of specialized training in Germany, Austria, South Africa, Switzerland, the UK and the US.

His major fields of clinical interests include oral and dentoalveolar surgery (including complex dental rehabilitation via augmentation/distraction procedures), maxillofacial traumatology (experiences in 3-D navigated surgery), orthognathic surgery (surgical correction of skeletal jaw discrepancies) and facial aesthetic surgical procedures (blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, genioplasty, facial implants).

Maxillofacial surgery is a very delicate and precise type of surgery, which I find very appealing. It is visible surgery and highly aesthetic.
