“I measure my success by the level of patient satisfaction. I can only achieve it when I have all the tools I need.”
Dr. Rafael Mejicano Soto is a dental surgeon. He is a specialist in Dental Implants, Periodontics, Oral Rehabilitation and Aesthetics. At DDS he is known throughout Central and South America as a leading innovator in optimizing dental quality and efficiency for patients worldwide. With the latest technology, state-of-the-art materials, excellent medical talent and a wonderfully comforting sense of humor, Dr. Mejicano integrates all of his resources to provide the best quality results his patients can depend on for years to come.
Dr. Mejicano is a proud member of the “Digital Smile Design” concept, which introduces the world to a new concept in dentistry. With computers and lasers doing the production work, DSD allows the dentist to be more collaborative and artistic, inviting the patient to be the designer of their own natural smile, confident that it is healthy. Dr. Mejicano uses state-of-the-art NemoDSD guided surgery software to plan extractions, bone grafting, implant placement and perigingival treatment with the utmost precision to ensure absolute accuracy and safety.
Centro Dental is a three-level dental clinic in the west wing of the Multimedica Hospital in zone 15 of Guatemala City, one of the best equipped dental centers in all of Central America. Ten trusted dental specialists have treated 45,000 satisfied patients over the past twenty years. Digital diagnostics, operating rooms, sterilization protocols and clinical instrumentation meet or exceed the highest global quality standards. In addition, his dental laboratory uses materials and techniques that were perfected and released from developmental research laboratories in recent years.
Dr. Mejicano has been a valuable contributor to Centro Dental’s success for 16 years, with over 2000 successful implant placements. Dental crowns and bridges can be provided in a single day using a digital oral scanner and CAD/CAM computer-aided design. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is accurately planned using quick and easy x-rays and tomographic diagnostic results in the same clinic.
When your dentist diagnoses apnea or snoring problems, he can usually decrease the problem by 20-30% with an inexpensive maxillofacial appliance. Two-week therapy may do wonders to help you sleep better and avoid surgery.
Veneers, crowns and fillings are restorations that cover different areas of the tooth, usually repairing a damaged section, and are used for a variety of reasons. They could be made of natural colored white resin, or the much more durable porcelain or ceramic. Dr. Mejicano is offering a new material: 3M ESPE flowable restorative dental composite. When properly cared for these dental restorations can last for decades.
The primary goal of all dental specialists is to preserve natural tooth structure and maintain long-term oral health. Dr. Mejicano is dedicated to sharing the wisdom of his training and knowledge with Centro Dental’s forty employees. Inspiring others is the meaning of a truly effective and compassionate leader.
