Dr. Stefan Klinge

About me


I am a general dentist in Kiel. Since more than 5 years I deeply dived into videography on the dental microscope. But also in online video presentations. 
A photograph is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand photographs. Case presentations with videos has IMHO a greater impact and it is easier for the audience to understand. Especially with difficult dental procedures, you can show your audience your special approach in a mor efficient way. 

Feel free to ask questions about cameras, adapters, lights etc. There are not stupid questions.

Best regards

Hello, I'm working in a private office where all my work is through the microscope. I started my clinical work 18 years ago. I soon realise that the magnification would be the way to get my best clinical results.
In 2011 I started a new dimension in my work as a lecturer where I met a lot of people and really enjoyed sharing knowledge.

I'm looking forward to enjoy, trying to answer your questions.

About me

Aesthetic Dentistry is my passion and vocation.

After having focussed the first 10 years of my professional career predominantly on aesthetic aspects of fixed prosthodontics i realized that the understanding of individual functional parameters is the key for successfully long lasting restorations.  Today i aim for a comprehensive approach to all treatments respecting the patients individual conditions and wishes and by that achieve the best results that contemporary dental art can provide. 

I feel always honoured when i am invited for lectures, courses or workshops. Feel free to message me, if you want to inquire about availability, topics and fees.

About me

I have been practising dentistry at my local clinic in Istanbul for the last 14 years. My primary focus is on minimally invasive dentistry, specifically with direct composite restorations. In my recent years as a clinician I have founded a passion for dental photography as an art.

"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know." - Diane Arbus

Dentistry should to be practical and realistic, but also mimic the artistry of nature. This is my motto in my everyday practise.

dr Andras Volom

About me

I am a curious person. 

How it works, what makes it fail... my everyday questions...the way how I approach the problems of my profession. 

Since 2002 I  deal with anterior jigs and masticatory muscle relaxation. A couple of  years later the application of  perioral muscular dysfunction therapy, intraoral antisnoring  and sleep apnea devices completed  this line.

Modern adhesive dentistry extends our limits.

Core build-up is a conflict area in current dentistry. What is the optimal size of a build-up, what to do when no ferrule is possible?

How to use intracanal flexible glass-fiber posts without any additional preparation? How to make the large direct restorations durable with intracoronal fibers?

Does a reliable technology exist for durable porcelain repairs?

Besides reinforcement I am deeply interested in the way how humans perceive forms and how we could this knowledge turn into better preparation procedures. 

If I have to summarize my philosophy: I am interested about function and biomechanics as they act in the human body (no impact remains local) 

Since 2003 my life would not be complete without organizing congresses and trainings. 

When it is not dentistry I like to spend my time with my three children and wife and dive in the Adriatic or sail on the lake Balaton.

Urs portrait medium

Dr. Urs Brodbeck

About me

I am a passionated private practitioner in dentistry with focus on prevention and  long term success of all of his clinical treatments. My patients commit their tooth health into my hands. I is my highest goal to maintain the periodontium (and eventually peri-implant tissues) healthy, to preserve as much tooth substance as possible and to maintain the pulps alive. (In other words: I want my patients to bite the dust with their own teeth :-)

My practice is built around a Dental Hygienist School. It is my opinion that any doctor should focus on prevention and more on how to avoid problems than to fix them.

Since the early eighties, I concentrate my reconstructive work on metal free restorations and all-ceramics. I had the opportunity to develop Empress I at Zurich University in cooperation with Ivoclarvivadent. Since then, I followed all the improvements in adhesive cementation techniques and ceramic material progress including Lithium-Disilicate and Zirconia.

Priv.-Doz. Dr. M. Ahlers

About me

Even before graduating from dental school I always had a special interest in the function of the craniomandibular system. Back then, my fellow students felt this was strange, as they were rather interested in orhter aspects of dentistry, as implants or whatsoever. Today, however, this earyl focus on function and dysfunction leads to an extended experience in respective patients.

After graduation, I joined the university clinics department for restorative dentistry to gain a broad understanding and compatence in clinical dentistry with a focus in all restorative techniques.

In research I concentrated on adhesive technique and published my habilitation thesis in this field.

Besides I was responsible for the TMD-patients of the university hospital´s school of dental medicine for many years.

In this position I developed or improved a considerable number of techniques in order to improve our diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Maybe my combined functional, restaorative and adhesive background was decisive for the development the technique to restore the occlusion minimally invasively by means of semipermanent (2003) and later by permanent (2009) repositioning onlays.

This technique works so well in my personal practice that I decided it was time to open up a special centre dedicated for the diagnostics and therapy of TMD-Patients in 2004 - a step I never regretted. In this structure my team and I have improved the techniques I developed at the dental school. In fact, I have published more research and CDE-articles after opening of the CMD-Centre than while working full time at the dental school. Also I revied my current textbook completely in 2011 - the book sold extremely well in meanwhile 4 (German) editions.

The drawback in this is that I rarely find the time anymore to play the saxophone with our band - something I will try to change in the future...

Besides that my second hobby was - and is to this day - photography. On this way I came to dental photography.

Dental microscopy and photography are my passion in addition to doing perfect dentistry.

I am focusing on minimal invasive treatments and endodontics.

In combination of all this it was obvious to combine documentation on the dental scope as well as documentation in all parts of dental treatments.

About me

I am a general dentist who developed an interest in orthodontics in order to treat my own children. I began incorporating orthodontics in my practice in 1999 with fixed and removable appliances, treating adults and growing children, practicing also dentofacial orthopaedics. 

In 2004, I incorporated Invisalign aligners in my "toolbox". Because of the success I had treating patients with this technology, I did more and more cases and became rapidly an Elite Prefer Provider of Invisalign. 

In 2015, after winning the Invisalign Summit Shootout in Las Vegas, Align Technology offered me to become an instructor. Since then I teach Invisalign Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced courses across Canada and USA and hopefully Europe soon ;)

I believe aligner orthodontics is something all general dentist should incorporate in their day to day general practice. It is for the benefit of our patient, our team, ourselves and for the benefit of dentistry.
