Be Well Opens a Dental Department

The Be Well Medical Centre at Banyan Residences Villas

The Be Well Medical Center is pleased to announce the opening of its dental department starting November 1st.

Mrs Manussawee Emanuel, Director and Co-Founder of Be Well Medical Center states “We believe extending our scope of medical services with dental care will add broader value to our members.”

Dr. Claus Petersmann will be the General Manager of the dental department. He brings a wealth of international dental experience to our clinic. Together with his managerial activities, he will be a consultant to patients and an adviser to the Thai dentists.  

There will be 2 dental practitioners at the clinic; Dr. Mansupawit (“Man”) and Dr. Patima (“Beer”).

See below for the full bios of our dental team.

The dental team will provide diagnostics services as well as a range of general dental treatments such as cleaning, fillings, prosthetics, cosmetics, root canal treatments, and minor surgery.

For complicated dental treatment planning and highly specialized treatments Be Well will collaborate with the Faculty of Dentistry of the Srinakarinwirot University (“SWU”), one of the renowned academic dental centers in Thailand. SWU will provide (remote) advice to our dentists and will treat patients at the faculty in Bangkok who will need highly specialized care (e.g. major oral surgery, complex orthodontics, oral cancer treatment, etc). Other aspects of the cooperation are currently being discussed with the Faculty management.
