Providing top-notch dental care for the local community in Zaragoza, Spain

Dr José Antonio Jiménez and Dr José Manuel Torralba Marco both have over 30 years of experience in dentistry. At their clinics in Zaragoza, Spain, they are committed to providing high-quality dental care with superior patient experience. Planmeca’s state-of-the-art dental equipment helps them to achieve this goal.

For Dr José Antonio Jiménez, patient experience and satisfaction have always been key priorities. He opened his clinic, Clínica Dental Jiménez Olite, over 30 years ago, and nowadays runs it together with his son. Three years ago, he decided to update and expand the clinic in terms of size and equipment, and moved it to a larger and more modern facility. “We did it with the idea of keeping the business up and running for thirty more years,” Dr Jiménez says.

Having previously focused on general dentistry, they now also perform surgical operations at the clinic as Dr Jiménez’s son is specialised in periodontics and microsurgery. When designing the new clinic, they wanted to create a comfortable and relaxing environment for both the patients and the staff. In addition, investing in modern, cutting-edge technology was important for them.

“I had heard positive things about Planmeca equipment and the technical support the company provides,” Dr Jiménez says. “The testimonials from my colleagues and the fact that I had already worked with the local distributor in the past encouraged me to choose Planmeca,” he continues. “I am really grateful for the guidance and support I have received from Fadente.”

Currently, Clinica Dental Jiménez Olite has a Planmeca Compact™ i Classic dental unit, a Planmeca Chair™ at the operating theatre, two Planmeca ProX™ intraoral X-ray units, and a Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic CBCT unit. The soft upholstery of the Planmeca Compact i Classic dental unit is something Dr Jiménez’s patients regularly praise. “They say that it is the most comfortable dental chair they have ever sat in!”

The ease of use of the Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic unit is another key benefit Dr Jiménez mentions. “It is effortless to position unlike some of the other devices I have used.” He also highly appreciates the head support of the unit, as it helps to make the imaging experience more pleasant for the patient.

For the last three years, Dr Jiménez has also been using the Planmeca Romexis® software platform. So far he has used the software for treatment planning and X-rays but believes it has many more possibilities to offer in addition to the ones he is currently benefiting from. “What I particularly like about Planmeca is that it is an innovative company that is constantly moving forward – I can’t wait to see what comes next,” he concludes.

Premium image quality for improved diagnostics

Dr José Manuel Torralba Marco from Clínica Dental Dr Torralba – Simón has worked in the dental industry for nearly 35 years. His clinic offers a wide range of dental treatments, including general dentistry, implantology, orthodontics, aesthetic dentistry, and endodontics. Last year, the practice moved to a new location where they have paid special attention to the layout of the clinic and have aimed at creating a calm, stylish and contemporary practice.

Dr Torralba Marco explains that Clínica Dental Dr Torralba – Simón has a long history using Planmeca’s dental equipment, starting out with analogue devices. Later on, they acquired two Planmeca ProX intraoral X-ray units as well as two Planmeca Compact i Classic dental units. Apart from the high-quality devices, Dr Torralba Marco admires how the After Sales team at Planmeca is organised and how they always have the customer’s best interest in mind.

Last year, along with the new clinic, they decided to invest in a CBCT unit. The Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic unit has proven to be worthy of their trust. Dr Torralba Marco says that his staff is extremely satisfied with the performance of the device – and more importantly – with the improved quality of images.

According to Dr Torralba Marco, the new imaging unit has transformed his dental practice. The premium image quality provides plenty of information about the bone structures, density and dimensions, and enables seeing even the finest details. “Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic allows us to make more precise diagnoses,” he states. “This improves the predictability of the procedures and leads to better treatment results.”
