I travelled over to Belgrade from Germany and stayed for 2 weeks in September 2018. I received 12 crowns and an 8 tooth bridge. 7 root canals with 2 posts. Basically a new smile. My accommodation was paid for and I was picked up from the airport.
While there, the dentists were in constant contact via WhatsApp to check on me and answer any questions I may have. They even helped me make other appointments (to get my nails done for instance). They are a lovely team who provide great service in a small family practice.
The prices are extremely competitive, they really go above and beyond to carry out your treatment to a tight timeframe.
From the moment I contacted the clinic (amongst almost 20 others in Serbia and Ukraine) I felt really at ease with Dr Popovic. He contacted me quickly, was happy to answer questions and offer suggestions.
I made my decision to go with this place pretty quickly after speaking to Dr Nemanja Popovic. Mostly because of his easy manner and the timeframe he offered – which fitted perfectly with my requirements.
Once I arrived in Belgrade, I was picked up from the airport and I quickly fell in love with the city. It’s a really beautiful and interesting place that feels incredibly safe. Which, as a woman travelling alone, was really important and made my trip a real breeze. Apartments and hotels are lovely and really kept to a high standard. The place I rented was beautiful and only a 20-minute walk from the practice, in a lovely part of the city. The people in Belgrade were also just so warm and friendly. The food, it was so good and most importantly cheap!
The dental practice itself is small and not flashy. Honestly, at first and halfway through the treatment this caused me a little bit of concern. I was able to address these concerns with the doctor. The familiarity and personalised care that the practice provides, suited me more than an official, a snazzy hands-off office would.
In terms of treatment, it was not Dr Popvic that carried mine out as I didn’t receive dental implants and he is a surgeon. It was mainly the wonderful and capable Dr Ivana Stamenic who handled my treatment, along with the straight-talking Dr Maja Manojlovic who carried out my 7 root canals.
Dr Ivana is a young dentist who can do pretty much everything! She is very confident, genuinely seems to care about your well-being and (for me incredibly important) aesthetics. She has a great eye, was extremely helpful to me in figuring out what changes to make in order for my crowns and bridge to look good. She was also just so hard-working and dedicated throughout my treatment, I cannot praise her enough.
Dr Popvic was also wonderful. He is very easy to get along with and was always available to ask questions of, or to offer advice and just generally around during treatment to smooth things over as he has a such an easy and clear manner, so helpful when you are in a foreign country and everyone is speaking a different language. Dr Ivana was capable and hard-working and even came in on her day off at the drop of a phone call as I was in pain.
A really dedicated team who work incredibly hard, offer flexible and personalised treatment with patience and personality to boot.
