He grew up in neighbouring Simmental, so he has known many of his patients from an early age. Although this rural practice, which employs three dentists, two dental hygienists and four dental assistants, does treat tourists and those with holiday homes in the area, it mainly welcomes residents of Schönried and its neighbouring communities. He believes his training at the University of Bern’s Clinic for Restorative Dentistry, Endodontology and Paediatric Dentistry led him to choose restorative dentistry as one of his specialisations.
“I always try to restore the damaged tooth with the help of state-of-the-art technology, notably an operating microscope,” explains Dr Kunz. He also uses CAD/CAM technology as part of the treatment. What’s more, since taking over the practice in 2014, Dr Kunz’s affinity for technology and willingness to try new treatment methods gave him the impetus to modernise and expand almost every area of the practice. “I want to offer my patients the most up-to-date treatments available,” he adds.
