About me

As a Ugandan I studied dentistry at the University of Hamburg before becoming a German citizen. After working as an associate dentist in several dental practices, I dedicated myself to the dental profession with mind, body and soul.

I have headed this practice for almost twenty years. It is very important for me to stay abreast with the latest developments by regularly going for further training. I have specialised in implant surgery, root canal treatment (endodontics), prosthetics and prophylaxis.

Patients afraid of visiting the dentist are in good hands with me. I make every effort to ensure that patients feel at ease.
Apart from German I also speak English and Kiswahili fluently.

During my free time, I love spending time with my family, staying fit and playing Golf.

Maike Elste

Practice Management

In 1997 I successfully completed my apprenticeship to attain the qualification of dental nurse in Hamburg. Since 1999 I have been working in this practice. Since qualifying as a dental hygienist, dental hygiene, child and youth prophylaxis as well consultation on dental care belong to my field of operations. These areas are very important to me as I want to help my patients keep their teeth healthy and beautiful as long as possible. For enquiries concerning your treatment or medical insurance matters I am more than happy to be of service, as the day-to-day and general practice management are also under my charge. In order to stay up-to-date with developments in my field I regularly attend trainings and seminars. In my free time I like to undertake fun activities with my daughter, my family and friends.

SURGERY

Simple surgical procedures – as pain free as possible.

Minimal radiation, for a maximum gain of diagnostic information.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (ENDODONTICS)

As much as possible we seek to preserve your natural teeth. In an antiseptic environment, we use a dental dam and with the help of hi-tech equipment such as the operational microscope und endometric devices, your root canal treatment is carried out with next to no discomfort.

DENTAL FILLINGS

We treat your teeth using first-class, biocompatible and substance-preserving materials. This insures long term stability and durability of your Fillings.

IMPLANT SURGERY

Minimal-invasive, bone-preserving methods are used to replace missing teeth. This enables continued optimal chewing and sparkling, natural-looking, new teeth.

TREATMENT OF CHILDREN

Bring your children to us as soon as possible! Together we can ensure healthy milk teeth. We help your child learn the best ways to have and keep clean teeth. Through play we show children how much fun brushing teeth can be. The best filling is the one we can do without!

PERIODONTITIS

It is estimated that approximately 40% of adults suffer from Periodontitis. Most of them are unaware of their illness. The risk of having a heart attack is twice as high, for a stroke three times as high compared to persons with healthy gums. It starts with an infection; a common symptom is bleeding of the gums. Should this be the case: we diagnose, we explain and we treat so that you are still able to maintain your teeth. By the way, good dental hygiene improves your health and minimises the risk of acquiring dangerous illnesses.

PROPHYLAXIS

Being really healthy, starts with good oral hygiene. We don’t let a tooth develop an ache. We stress how important dental hygiene is, coupled with effective oral care at home. Optimal dental hygiene is good for your general health, for the success of every dental procedure and for the maintenance of your natural teeth and beautiful smile!
