Why Choose Snö?

At Snö Dental Clinics, we strive to deliver the best holistic and minimally invasive dental care in the world. We are proud to have a world-class team of western qualified and trained dentists, each with at least 10 years of experience, who have either worked in or owned family group practices.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and Scandinavian approach to minimally invasive dentistry ensures that every patient receives only the best care. All our procedures are fully documented and transparent. We will never overcharge or over-treat. This is the Snö promise.


Our Philosophy

To be the best at what we do, we have to be Superior, Gentle and Trusted.

Being superior means that our whole team, including our in-house laboratory technicians, dental hygienists and nurses, work together to continually improve and develop their skills. This peer-reviewing environment means our patients get the expertise of not just one, but an entire team of dental care providers, resulting in truly superior care. In addition, we only use the latest proven equipment and materials.

We believe that being gentle means offering holistic and minimally invasive treatments to help you retain your naturally healthy teeth. Modern dentistry should be pain and risk-free, which is why we offer the most comprehensive and thorough exams and procedures. Being gentle also means we will never overcharge or over-treat.

Trust is the foundation of everything we strive to achieve at Snö, so we give all our patients complete transparency. All our processes are documented and audited. In fact, we will provide you with all the documentation you need if you want to get a second opinion. All our patient data is confidential and securely encrypted. We guarantee long-term satisfaction with our work.


Our Services

We provide a full range of general and specialised services. And since we believe in transparency, all our prices and services are available on our website and in our clinics.

Apart from the usual services you will find in other clinics around the UAE, we offer the Snö Exam – a comprehensive examination that assesses your dental health and the treatments you need, or do not ñ because sometimes, the best treatment is no treatment at all. We also provide unparalleled prophylactic care and tips for you to maintain your healthy natural teeth and smile for years. At Snö, we offer Same Day Service, through our fully equipped dental lab with ceramic milling and 3D printing.

In line with our commitment to serve our patients better, we are accepting Daman and Thiqa insurance plans as an in-network provider. Our main branch in Plaza 30 (Al Nahyan Compound), Delma Street will be able to direct bill to Daman and Thiqa for specified dental treatment needs.

Our Facilities

Designed entirely for patient well-being and comfort, our spacious and modern clinics are located at two convenient locations; our main hub is in Plaza 30, Delma Street and our second branch is in Yas Mall.

Snö’s main branch at Plaza 30, is a 1,300 square feet purpose-built facility with 13 consulting rooms equipped with the latest dental equipment, comfortable waiting areas, and an interactive kids’ zone.  Informative magazines are available as well as patient educational materials such as brochures. It also has half a floor, allocated for Snö team discussions on treatments and cases. Our Yas Mall branch allows convenient mall access for patients and operates from 10 am to 10 pm, every day.

Our state-of-the-art, in-house digital laboratory uses 3D software allowing us to create crowns, veneers, bridges, implants, etc. that are super accurate and 100% patient-specific. We have a 3D lab scanner, a 3D printer and an advanced 3D CAD/CAM 5-axis dental milling machine for ceramic material which can be Zirconia, E-max, Enamic as well as handcrafted feldspathic. Using all this advanced technology, Snö guarantees a quick, efficient treatment with same-day construction of dental appliances. This means that procedures can be completed in one day, and you don’t have to make a series of trips for just one treatment.

Snö uses only the best-in-class technology and equipment. Our panoramic and 3D X-ray technologies produce minimal radiation, while our 3Shape photographic 3D scanners allow us to scan your whole mouth in full colour in a matter of minutes.

These technologies help us give you the most comprehensive diagnosis.

Our practice of minimally invasive dentistry includes the use of The Wand for computerised anaesthetic injections that are completely pain-free. We also provide Nitrous Oxide for kids and adults. Radiation-free detection of caries for children and pregnant women is also available.

At Snö, we are committed to providing our patients the highest level of safety possible. Thus, we maintain high standards of cleanliness and sterilisation.
