Our Clinical Director

General Dental Practitioner Dr. John McKean, BDS, qualifying in 1975 from the University of Birmingham Dental School, UK, is part of the doctor’s team at Clínica Pacífico in Albufeira.

Dr John McKean is able to relate to patient's fears after a painful experience as a child left him a Dental Phobic and he now works to help alleviate patient fears at Clínica Pacífico.

“I spent much of my early career finding ways to overcome patients’ fears. The main problem is that the patient, feeling intimidated, feels out of control of his situation. Many had been to dentists who gave instructions on how to signal discomfort, but the dentist just carried on, thus destroying any faith the patient had and increasing the feeling of panic,” said Dr John McKean.

“We try to make all patients feel welcome and relaxed. Patients must always feel in control with whatever treatments they are undertaking and we make sure that patients understand the treatments that are recommended and what alternatives there are while keeping patients fully informed of cost implication,” he added.

Since then, she’s been undertaking post graduate education in orthodontic treatments, pediatric dentistry and mechanical endodontics.
