DR VALÉRIE MÉTRAL-FAVEZ:  ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS IN CONSCIOUS SEDATION AND AESTHETIC DENTISTRY

Dr Valérie Métral-Favez qualified as a dentist at the University of Geneva in 1998. She spent three years working in the department of Prof. Krejci (Cariology, Endodontics and Paediatric Dentistry), obtaining her doctorate in 2004 with a thesis entitled ‘Intégrité marginale des scellements de fissures’ (Marginal integrity of fissure sealants). She went on to study aesthetic dentistry (teeth whitening, composite resins, veneers and onlays) with Prof. Magne and Dr Dietschi. She also became familiar with the use of inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide (‘laughing gas’) during her training in paediatric dentistry.

From 2001 to 2010, she lived in Lucerne and worked in the dental practice of Dr Buholzer in Zug. In 2011, she joined Dr Tétaz’s practice. Here she enjoys working in general dentistry and, thanks to her experience with conscious sedation and hypnosis, she has been able to extend the care of children and nervous patients.
