Welcome to Palace Dental Care

Your Path to Exceptional Dental Care

A message from the founder of Palace Dental Care

My journey to founding Palace Dental Care began quite unexpectedly while travelling in Spain when I suddenly needed dental help. I ended up at Clínica Dental Palacio and was immediately impressed by the modern facilities and the exceptional quality of treatment. This experience not only solved my acute problem, but also motivated me to have a major treatment carried out, which I had repeatedly postponed due to the high costs in Switzerland.

The result was simply overwhelming. Impressed by the quality and the affordable prices, I saw an opportunity that could not only benefit me, but also others. Driven by this experience, I suggested offering this service worldwide and so Palace Dental Care was born. Our aim is to give international patients the opportunity to regain their smile through first-class dental care at fair prices.

On your first day at the office, we’ll gather necessary data for treatment planning. Even complex cases can typically be addressed within a week, but proper diagnosis is key to start any treatment with a clear end goal in mind. 

For more intricate implant cases, we offer local sedation performed by an anesthesiologist, and immediate loading of long-term provisionals. Patients with such cases will need to return after six months to replace the long-term provisionals with permanent teeth. 

We’ll make your journey as smooth as possible, helping you with flights, accommodation, and transfers. Contact us via email and you will see how easily we can handle your case while you enjoy your time in our natural paradise. 

– Dr. F. Mercadé

Welcome to my dental office, Palace Dental Care. I’m Jaime Fernández Mercadé, the medical director of our two practices located in Cantabria, the beautiful northern region of Spain.

I’m utterly passionate about dental health – a true tooth fanatic, if you will. My quest for knowledge led me from my studies in Madrid to educational pursuits across the globe. I enriched my expertise with postgraduate programs at the University of North Carolina, delved into aesthetics with Prof. Pascal Magne, and honed my skills in implants and periodontology at the University of the Basque Country and Complutense University.

I count myself fortunate to have collaborated with some of the top dentists across Spain, soaking up wisdom in Pamplona, Oviedo, and Zaragoza. These enriching experiences culminated in my ultimate dream: taking over our family-run clinics right here in Cantabria.

You as a European Patient have the advantage to be able to count on a great team with the latest proved technology at a very reasonable budget. Plus, getting here is a breeze with direct flights from many European cities to Santander and Bilbao airports – both a short 30-40 minute drive away from our clinics. 

To give you a sense of what to expect: First, we establish contact via email to understand your needs and gather a brief health history. Any Rx pictures or 3D data you can share would be a great starting point. We then schedule a video call, in English, Spanish or German, to discuss your case further, exploring potential treatments and budget estimations.
