Dr. Frank Meckbach
High-tech for a Healthy Smile
Technology is his passion. Even as a boy, Dr. Frank Meckbach wanted to understand how an engine works and why an airplane flies. Later he financed his studies by repairing cars. Once his dental studies were completed however, the Dortmund native transferred his enthusiasm for crankshafts and cylinder heads into his private life. Since then, he has been professionally fascinated by dental health and tooth preservation, as well as titanium, ceramics and other high-tech materials that can be integrated into the jaw to restore teeth and dentures. The dentist wants to "give the patient back their smile", because "a smile with healthy teeth conveys vitality, beauty and increased quality of life".
After finishing his studies in Frankfurt, Meckbach acquired basic knowledge in the then still-young field of implantology at the South African University Hospital Stellenbosch. The specialist for fixed dentures attaches great importance to the fact that "our patients feel well advised". What is important to him is the professional interaction in the practice team - and the common credo: "We treat each patient as we would treat ourselves".
Outside the practice you can meet Frank Meckbach rowing on the Main or sometimes at the start of a classic car rally. And it is not clear when his eyes glow more - talking about his profession or raving about e-types & "pagodas".
