Dental clinic makes a name for itself
Sorriso Matinal, 24-hour dental services in Lagoa
Sorriso Matinal has deals with the main insurance companies and patients from the National Health Service can use their dentist-cheque.
Excellent service for a fair price – this is how Sorriso Matinal dental clinic defines itself. It has been improving the dental health of Lagoa’s residents since 2013 and is the only dental clinic open 24 hours a day in the borough. The clinic offers a complete service in terms of dental medicine, including implantology and orthodontics, paediatric dentistry, general surgery, temporary and permanent dentures, dental aesthetics, digital radiology and endodontics.
“Sorriso Matinal aims to provide an excellent service at a fair price. The team is committed to this goal not only in Lagoa but all across the Algarve. It is the only clinic that provides 24-hour services every day in dental medicine,” says owner Tiago Silva.
The decision to open a dental clinic in Lagoa followed a market study which found that the town was lacking in the health services department, especially in terms of dental medicine.
Silva believes that Sorriso Matinal paved the way for other dental clinics to open in Lagoa since then, but many have since closed or relocated.
Despite the competition, Sorriso Matinal continues to treat more and more patients.
“The number of patients and consultations has been increasing, which is a decisive factor in our expansion and growth strategy,” says Silva.
Currently boasting a team of 12 patient-minded dental medicine professionals, the Lagoa clinic has been a success.
“It has been very gratifying for our team to be in Lagoa. Most of our patients recognise that we offer a quality service for a fair price. Lately, we have noticed an increase in the number of people coming to us from other areas of the Algarve. They hear about us through our patients. Word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising.”
The clinic has deals with the main insurance companies and is part of the national programme of oral health created by the Ministry of Health, which allows patients from the National Health Service to use a dentist cheque.
