About Dr. Bernd Klaus
We are a small but modern clinic in a tiny village 45 minutes away from Nuremberg Airport. Air Berlin has two daily direct flights from Stansted. We can meet you at the airport and you could either stay at either a Nuremberg hotel, in one of the village pubs or in our basic flat situated in the house where we live and the surgery is located.
If you prefer to stay for a few days instead of flying home before your next visit you could see Nuremberg, medieval Rothenburg, hike in our area of outstanding natural beauty or taste the large number of local beers and wines.
The surgery has an OPG x-ray machine and a small lab. My two dental nurses, one of them my wife Dorothy, have been working with me since 1989
I founded it in 1989 and sold it in 2000. Then I worked in other parts of Germany and in developing countries till 2005. From 2005 to the end of 2010 I worked in various private practices in England and Scotland. When my successor in Trautskirchen suddenly had to give up the practice I took it over again. I have loved to work in the UK. In my experience UK dentistry is equal to any other country with one exception: high class dentures and complicated bridges. Here German dentistry has been on top for decades and has much to offer for patients looking for the best..
I have more than 30 years of experience with telescopic crowns and precision attachtments as a better solution than clasps for removable partial dentures and overdentures. While these are generally made of costly gold alloys a few labs have comparably excellent results with the more affordable non-precious alloys. Luckily my dental lab is one of these and I see a lot of my dentures after 20 years and they are still fully functional.
Another advantage with German dentures is that we can get a superior bite by using a face bow for programming an individual articulator simulating your chewing actions. This eliminates the guesswork and haphazard grinding common with UK dentists after the patient has got his dentures and can not bite properly.
When you consider a high-end or partial denture you should be aware that you need at least 4 visits with one week intervals if made in Germany and 2 week intervals when made outside Germany (cheaper). Full dentures can be made within one week.
Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.We will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
