Payment is made as the treatment proceeds. When the implants are placed, patients will pay for the implant installation part. After 3 months, or when the actual teeth are fitted on top, patients pay the balance.
No upfront payment is necessary.
Cancellation of appointments must be done at least 24 hours prior to surgery –
or with valid reason if later.
Missed surgical appointment without notice will incur an administration fee of 75€ if the patient re-books.

HOW DOES IT WORK
The process starts with a consultation. Dr. S. Mark has surgery clinics both in Fuengirola and in Marbella (Nueva Andalucia). If you send your inquiry by email, or the contact forms, we will respond personally as soon as possible. If you already have images and X-rays, you can forward them as well.
At the consultation you will have the necessary X-rays and clinical examination to assess bone volumes and your case. You will be given a treatment plan and a quote.
If you accept the plan, the first part of the treatment is to have the actual implant placed. Usually after 7-10 days (if you are not travelling) you come back for a check-up and to remove stitches.
Healing time for the implant(s) is usually three months, and that is when impressions are made, and fabrication of the teeth starts. Depending on the number of teeth being replaced, the final work takes about 2-4 weeks before the permanent teeth are fitted.
We can even offer airport pickup and drop-off for patients coming from abroad. And we can offer driver assistance on your surgery day to and from the clinic. (conditions apply: treatments over 3000€)
We understand that dental implant treatment can be an important decision,
and sometimes it is valuable to get a different view on things.
If you have already had a consultation elsewhere, and would like a second opinion, Dr. S. Mark is happy to give his thoughts on your case either by email or by consultation. You can send your story and images by email or by filling in the CONTACT FORM (click here).
If you have had a lower quote locally or from abroad, and the doctor shares the same view of approach, he will even do his best to match it.

TRAVELING FROM ABROAD
If you are a traveller from abroad, and considering having your dental implant treatment with Dr. S. Mark, there are several advantages you will benefit from.
Competitive pricing compared to UK, US and central and northern Europe.
You can enjoy the sunny weather of Costa del Sol and the proximity to beaches.
Larger treatments include Malaga airport pickup service and surgery day pickup and transfer from your residence (conditions apply: treatments over 3000€).
We adapt to your time table and travel arrangements.
You need to plan your treatment in the following way:
1st phase: You will need be here for about minimum 5-10 days to be able to have your consultation, implant(s) placed, and stitches removed and wound checked before you travel home.
2nd phase: A minimum of three months later you will need come back to start the impression work and fabrication of your permanent teeth. That could be anywhere from 10 days to one month, depending on the complexity of your case and number of teeth that are being restored.
Express treatments of teeth fabrication can be made but might have additional fees from the laboratory for a faster turnover.
Also worth mentioning is that even if you are back home and need maintenance on your new teeth or implants, the implant system we use has a very common connection and drivers, used by many implant surgeons. It is a standard internal hexagon.
