David, the Founder of Dr. Roze & Associates Clinics, began his career at the Rennes University of Dentistry in France. After building a knowledge and understanding of his craft, dentistry then took him to Lille for an internship in surgery. Later, David’s passion saw him relocated to Paris, where he qualified as a Specialist in Implantology and Oral Surgery at Paris VI University.
The latest clinical researches pushed him to use biocompatible non-metal ceramic implants in his daily practice. He went with his team multiple times to Switzerland, and received some of the most advanced training in biological dentistry, biocompatibility materials and nutrition protocols. Together, with the academically oriented minds of the team, they were able to introduce the concept of Biological Dentistry in the Middle East, constantly researching the healthiest while scientific approach to heal the mouth, “the mirror to the body “.
“When I was about 5, I started learning the violin at the French Conservatorie of Music. It seemed very demanding at first, but the discipline and hard work that I learned at this time, have allowed me to accomplish many things in my life. I have always been fascinated by the workings of a symphony – the harmony of all of the musicians together.
This sychronisation is what I want to achieve with the dental practice – a team of respected professionals working together in perfect harmony to create the best experience for our patients, following our core values: Human, Elegant and Remarkable.
I live in Dubai since 2003 with my wife, Dr. Agnes – who is a paediatric dentist at our clinic. I am a great lover of polo – and my passion for horses has been passed on to my 2 daughters, whilst my son is a keen football and basketball player.”
As a mum of three children, I understand the challenges that come with kids – their daily routines and education as well as making the best decisions for them and constantly worrying about them. In my field, as a paediatric dentist, it is really important to me that I can create an atmosphere where parents and children will feel at ease and can take one of those worries off of a parent’s mind. I adore children and I love helping them to overcome their fears of the dentist. It is crucial for me to gain their confidence and build a trust that will last for years. Seeing them coming out with a smile on their face is a fantastic reward.
I come from France where I studied general dentistry in Rennes. I then worked as an Assistant Teaching Professor in Paedodontic and Prevention Dentistry in Lille and did a post graduate in Clinical and Surgical Treatment Paediatics in Marseille.
Now I live in Dubai with my family and work with my husband, David Roze in our clinic. I enjoy running and have competed in some races. My true passion however is trekking as I love the physical, mental and emotional accomplishment of reaching to top of a mountain. I have climbed Mt. Klimanjaro, Mt. Blanc, Mt. Kenya and a few more summits. I look forward to when my children will join me on these treks.
Hubert completed his dentistry degree in his home country of France, at the Medicine and Dentistry University of Montpellier. He brings a strong portfolio to Dr. Roze & Associates, offering an array of skills to the team that include additional specialisations in the fields of Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry – making him a practiced and future-facing member of the Dr. Roze family.
“The field of dentistry is becoming more and more fascinating as an electronic and digital revolution gives us new tools and innovations to create amazing aesthetics with long-lasting results. It is truly becoming an art discipline.
I became a CEREC® specialist as I believe there has never been a dental technique that is as efficient and complete. It allows me to give professional results without lengthy waiting periods or prolonged discomfort to my patient.
In 2019 Dr. Hubert became SMART certified (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique) and is an active member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)
When I’m not working, I like to enjoy the pleasures that Dubai has to offer. From spending weekends in the desert with friends and having dinner in excellent restaurants with my wife, to taking our child to the beach or jogging along the sea after a long day of work. I find many small things add to a great sum which makes Dubai a unique and enjoyable place to live.”
