Çocuk Ağız ve Diş Sağlığı Polikliniği (Oral&Dental Health Polyclinic for Kids)

The children studying at the primary schools in Beşiktaş are taken by the municipal shuttle busses from their schools and brought to our polyclinic in accordance with a certain program. Kids are taken into the training room first and then they are trained on the topics of “oral and dental health” and “healthy nutrition”. Afterwards, our pedodontist completes the dental check-up on the kids. If it is required, panoramic images of the kids’ oral and dental status are taken, and a treatment planning is made for each of them. What kind of polyclinic do we provide?

Instead of a dull hospital environment, a refreshing and vibrant waiting room designed only for the kids welcomes the children and their families.

In our playroom, there are toys for kids aged 5-14 years, and the kids can watch cartoons and play games on touchscreens. Our goal is to make them have a joyful time while waiting for their appointment in our polyclinic. In our training room with a capacity of 30 kids, students are provided with trainings on the topics such as oral and dental health, healthy nutrition, etc. accompanied by a presentation with a specially-designed software.

There are four dental units, sterilization rooms and a panoramic x-ray room in our clinic department. Our clinic is designed in a non-compartmentalized way for pedagogical concerns with the purpose of preventing kids from feeling like trapped in small and confined spaces and enabling them to be motivated by being able to see their peers around. During the treatment, the kids can watch cartoons on the screens installed in each dental unit.

Four dentists, four assistant dentists, a psychologist, an x-ray technician, a maintenance and repair worker, three patient consultant and two cleaning workers perform duty in our Oral and Dental Health Polyclinic for Kids, which is built on a 500 m2 area.

Couple and Family Therapy

Couple and Family Therapy service is offered at the Healthy Living Centre operating within Beşiktaş Municipality.

Couple and Family Therapy, or Systemic Therapy, is a mental health discipline that makes sense of the client’s problem within their close relationships and is based on the theory that this problem is caused by dysfunctional interaction patterns.

Couple and Family Therapists work with couples, families with children, adult families, individuals and groups. In this context, therapists support the formation of functional relational cycles (e.g. mutual emotional presence) by breaking dysfunctional cycles (e.g. blame-defence cycle) with emotional, cognitive and behavioural methods.

Our neighbours who have problems in couple, or family relationships can benefit from our service that includes this therapy method. You can apply to the Healthy Living Centre every weekday between 09:00-16:00 to make an appointment for Couple and Family Therapy.
