Dental clinic to open two more branches

Locally-owned Pachem Dental Clinic will open two more branches next year in Phnom Penh to cater to growing demand from local and international clients, especially with the increase in foreign tourists, said its co-founder Dr Chap Rithy.

He told reporters at a press conference to celebrate its 20th anniversary recently that Pachem Dental Clinic that the two new branches would be located in Chroy Changvar district and in the Gold Tower 42 building which will be completed by the end of next year.

“Our vision is to make Pachem Dental Clinic the largest in Cambodia and also the region’s leading one,” he said, adding that the clinic wants to be closer to its clients, and especially tourists.

In recent years, he said, there have been a lot of clients from the US, Australia and Canada obtaining services at his clinic.

Another of the clinic’s co-founders, Leng Tong, said that since its establishment, the clinic has treated more than 200,000 clients, of which 85 per cent are locals and 15 per cent international.

Each day, between 250 and 300 clients come to the Pachem Dental Clinic for all branches.

“Currently, there are five foreign doctors and 30 Khmer ones at the clinic. We focus on quality, service, hygiene and advanced technology,” he said.

Tong said the clinic had purchased some of the most advanced equipment and technology from the US, Germany, Switzerland and South Korea.

“Our success comes from the efforts of staff such as our dental surgeons, nurses, technicians and cleaning staff who work with us in a mission to help everyone achieve a confident smile,” he said.

Established in 1999, Pachem Dental Clinic currently has four branches, of which three are in Phnom Penh and another in Siem Reap province with a total of 50 treatment chairs.

CEO Keuk Nary told The Post that in 2011, the clinic was certified as having met the coveted ISO 9001-2008 standard. This signified that its services meet the highest quality and safety standards that are recognised internationally in dentistry and related medical care.

Its dental implants are sourced from Swiss-based Straumann Group and South Korean OSSTEM Implant, both of which have received accolades globally for their pioneering, innovative products.

Invisalign from San Jose, California, a cutting-edge alternative to traditional braces, is yet another high-end offering at Pachem.
