Robertas Kirlys – DMD, Prosthodontics and Orthodontics, VILNIUS

Ten people working individually will never achieve as much as a team of ten people. I am a prosthodontist and orthodontist, and the head of dentistry at the Vilnius branch of Grožio Chirurgija Clinic. In my work, the most important thing is a tight-knit TEAM that genuinely cares for the patient from the moment he or she steps into our clinic. Continuous improvement, professionalism, trust, communication and exceptional attention to detail allow us to resolve even the most complex clinical situations.
