The Dental Operation Center, or ’DOC Clinic’ as it is also known locally in Fethiye, was the brainchild of consultant implantologist and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Özgür Yürük, who envisioned a state of the art dental hospital in a popular holiday resort with all branches of dentistry available under one roof for the convenience of both locals and international patients alike. Along with 2 other existing members of his team from his original dental clinic in Bursa, in the north of Turkey, he moved together with his family to Fethiye in 2018 in order to realize his dream.
Located conveniently on the outskirts of Fethiye and close to the resort of Calis Beach, the DOC Dental Clinic opened in February 2019 with the addition of a further 4 English speaking dentists to take the total number of available dental chairs to 6, covering everything from general dentistry, dental prosthetics and orthodontics to paedodontics (child dentistry), implantology and oral/maxillofacial surgery.
Combined with 2 English speaking international patient coordinators and a large number of experienced dental assistants and clinic support staff, the Dental Operation Center aims to provide expert dental care at a competitive price in a friendly, modern and hygienic environment.
The spacious and stylish clinic offers a full range of state of the art medical facilities and dental equipment and is a far cry from the old fashioned and often cramped and out dated dental practices that are found across much of the United Kingdom and in other parts of Europe. Alongside the modern facilities and technological advances, patients visiting from Europe, where both private emergency and cosmetic dentistry can carry a huge price tag, can save up to 70% on their overall treatment costs, all whilst in the professional care of our fully qualified, expert team of specialists and general dentists.
Our impressive facilities include:
6 dental chairs
A large on-site dental laboratory
Sirona CEREC Technology – A revolutionary computer aided design and manufacturing system for the instant creation of dental crowns and bridges using 3D scans to complete treatment in just one visit.

OPG X-ray – An OPG (Orthopantomagram) is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. An OPG also demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted through the gum.
