His ethos is the application of the basic biologic principles of hard and soft tissue biology to manage the placement restoration and long-term maintenance of dental implants.
“Patient-centered treatment including an understanding of the patient’s lifestyle, requirements and ability to look after their restorations is a major factor in the long-term success of any treatment. Success in dental implantology requires, more than anything, the holistic treatment of the patient. Dental implants are foreign bodies and strict adherence to sterility and patient care are essential.” – Ali

Michal qualified as a dentist in Poland after a long career in healthcare. Upon qualifying Michal worked in Warsaw before travelling overseas to shadow leading dentists in the USA and Scandinavia.

His main areas of interest are cosmetic and minimally invasive dentistry with a laser focus on cosmetic composite bonding. He utilises the most modern techniques and materials to create almost instant and life-changing smiles for his patients.
If you have a tooth that is broken, chipped, cracked or discoloured, composite resin can be an ideal solution to repair it: restoring the function, shape and appearance. Composite resin can be bonded seamlessly to your natural enamel, often in one appointment and without any drilling of the remaining tooth.
Here at Regency House Dental Clinic in St Albans we offer multiple cosmetic treatments such as composite bonding, crowns, veneers and teeth whitening. Michal works closely with our experienced clinical team who offer dental implants, orthodontics and facial aesthetics.
