The Team

Dr. John McKean
Dr. John McKean
Dr. John McKean, MD, licensed in Dental Surgery, qualified in 1975 by the University of Birmingham, School of Dentistry of the United Kingdom, is part of the medical team at Clínica Pacífico in Albufeira.
Dr. John McKean is able to relate to the patient's fears after a painful experience as a child that left him a "dental phobic" working now to help ease the patient's fears at the Clinica Pacifico.

“I spent much of my early career finding ways to overcome patients' fears. The main problem is that the patient, feeling intimidated, feels out of control of his situation. Many had gone to dentists who gave instructions on how to signal discomfort, but the dentist just continued, thus destroying any faith the patient might have had and increasing the feeling of panic,” said Dr. John McKean. “We try to make all patients feel welcome and relaxed. Patients should always be in control of all the treatments they are performing and we must be sure that patients understand the treatments that are recommended and what alternatives exist, keeping patients fully informed of the cost implication,” he added.
