Brighten Up Your Smile At New Clinic

The Award-Winning Dr. Thomas Koty has arrived in Cabo and is opening his clinic ‘Advanced Cabo Dentistry’ this February. We met the world-renowned expert in implantology and cosmetic restoration to talk about his career and his latest practice in Cabo.

Prof. Dr. Dr.h.c Thomas Koty (yes his full title!) strikes a surprisingly welcoming figure. Tall, tanned, a mop of curly sun bleached hair and dressed in a Hawaii shirt and sandals, he looks more Cali surfer than a Harvard trained German Professor. Yet, Thomas has run a series of award-winning clinics all over the world, from Europe to Bali, Indonesia, and now Mexico, in which he has been for just over one year, with his first Mexican practice in Cancun. We caught up with him to talk about his latest practice, Advanced Cabo Dentistry, opening at the end of February 2020.


Q: What made you get into dentistry?

A: When I was a young boy, my biggest fear was going to the dentist. I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, but when I started my medical degree I decided that I wanted to try to change people’s view of the dental industry. I found it extremely interesting and my career started there. I have now been working as a dentist for nearly 30 years, but I like to think I am constantly learning, and keeping up to date with the latest techniques.


Q: Briefly describe your career?

A: It started in Germany, after I opened my first clinic, a small practice near Munich. I then went on to found many much larger clinics, and it just kept on growing! I found myself longing for warmer climates, and moved to Bali to found a clinic there 4 years ago, which won Best Customer satisfaction globally 2 years running and became one of the biggest clinics in Indonesia. Many of our customers were from Australia, but the clientele was international.


Q: What is the most satisfying aspect of your job?

A: It’s so thrilling to meet my patients, most who are insecure about their smile. Some do come to me wanting a Hollywood look, but the majority of my clients have survived illness or have just not been able to access dental care because of the high costs in Europe, America and Canada. Healthy looking teeth are more important than many people realize. Within a week I can change a face and give people a new found confidence.


Q: Why did you choose Cabo to open your new clinic?

A: I was drawn to the laid back Californian lifestyle, the perfect climate, the people, the food, and of course, it’s close proximity to the U.S. West coast. I decided to bring my new practice here to offer both locals and holiday-makers alike the chance to restore their smile in a beautiful relaxed environment.


Q: What makes Advanced Cabo Dentistry different from other clinics?

A: Our clinic offers up to 70 percent off U.S. and Canada prices whilst still maintaining the highest level of European standards. We are able to keep the costs down in Mexico, but all of our equipment is of the highest quality. We use only the latest technology, and all of our materials are sourced from Germany and the US. Every crown, veneer and bridge is created here in our in-house laboratory, by our German master technician Jochen Parnt. I also personally train and work with the dentists myself to ensure the highest standards are kept.

Thank you Dr. Koty for your time, we wish you every success!
