FACE DENT: A Clinic with the Best Professional Team and Patient Oriented Technology
Face Dent Clinic, located at number 29 of Avenida de la Marina in Rota (next to the downtown gas station), offers magnificent installations. Here highly qualified professionals coupled with the best technological resources in the market stand out. The clinic, managed by the prestigious doctor Manuel Rull Broquetas, offers dental and facial treatments. The conversation with Dr. Rull immediately transmits confidence and calm to the patient. His slow speech, marked by the facts that show his profound knowledge of the profession, instil in the patients tranquillity and the guarantee that is underlined by his long professional experience. Dr. Rull is happy that he has been able to consolidate this clinic, his third (he manages two others in Sevilla) with the philosophy “The patient comes first” and a very specialized professional team. Manuel Rull has a long career in medicine. As a doctor in medicine specialized in orthopaedic surgery, he worked in English hospitals and in the decade of the 90’s decided to study dentistry. He started this new activity with the knowledge his ample formation brings. Since then he has
worked in all fields of dentistry;“this gives me a global vision of dentistry in order to coordinate his team that is now composed of 20 professionals” Dr. Rull stated. In his clinic, dentistry is complemented by facial treatments. In this way, he says, “when we rehabilitate a patient with implants, we can rejuvenate his face as well, this way, we have seen that the aesthetic facial treatment is entering in dentistry, as a complement and a plus in the satisfaction our patients feel with the results.
fection for Rota and it is part of him. His future plans include spending more time in Rota, which is one of the reasons he considered opening this clinic “because I like the life in Rota better than in big cities”. Dr. Rull is an acknowledged expert in implants. “My formation in implants began when I was an orthopaedic surgeon and formed part of very advanced scientific groups in Spain and England”. “After that my specific formation in oral implants has been a continuation of previous formation acquired in orthopaedics”. He explains.As a matter of fact, Dr. Banemark, considered the inventor and father of oral implants was an orthopaedic surgeon who applied his experimental investigations in rabbits to the development of dental implants”, he affirms. Currently Dr Rull carries out his professional activity exclusively as a specialist in implants and oral surgery. “Dental implants are the most predictable and longest lasting treatment with the fewest failures that exist in dentistry today”, he points out.
This expert makes it clear that “individual dentistry is no longer up to date, nor the concept of clinic that there used to be”. Team work and quality control of the treatments is the philosophy of our clinic. Insofar as the present state of his clinic, he affirms that “we have all of the technology that exists in the sector, with a base of more than 20 years of experience, that is our best guarantee to get the results and treatments worthy of the most advanced dentistry world wide”, he concludes.
A Clinic that Looks to the Future With respect to the future of Face Dent in Rota, Dr. Rull points out that “I am letting time put us in our place. I want time to pass and my patients will realize that the clinic is here to stay, looking to the future”. He emphatically points out that “we are not like others, that are here for a while and then gone. After me, the Rull saga will The Medicine of Yesteryear Dr. Rull had the valuable example of continue in the hands of my son, Manuel his father in his beginnings in medicine. who is will to prepare himself in order to Therefore, he explains, “the basis of my be able to take over and continue with sanitary formation was learned from a what we are doing”, Dr. Rull proudly states. generation of doctors, like my father and his colleagues, who held a global vision of the patient, taking into account the whole human organism, in order to restore and maintain health”. “From this perspective I consider the mouth is the entryway for healthy nutrition and responsible for the first phase of a fundamental process such as digestion”. I practice with the criteria of the physician of yesteryear, more ample and humanized”, he adds. Manuel Rull considers himself a roteño by adoption.

SURVIVAL GROCERY SHOPPING IN SPAIN by A.M. Ávila
(This article is based on a suggestion from one of our readers. Thank you Howard White, USN (retired).)
rocery shopping on the economy can be frustrating, if not interesting. Many years ago, when I first arrived to Spain, I went to a grocery store to look for canned peaches. Feeling confident that my Tex-Mex Spanish would allow me to get by, I was met with puzzled looks when I asked for “duraznos.” I later learned that durazno is an indigenous word that was not known here in Spain. I was at a loss since I had no other word for peaches. So, I ended up going up and down the store´s aisles until I found a can with a picture of peaches on it. In Spain, they are called “melocotones.” If you were to need basic food items, would you feel confident enough to find what you are looking for? I would like to provide you with what might serve as a basic survival guide to shopping for those items on the Spanish economy. If you have a choice, go to a larger food store versus the corner store. Some of the items that you are looking for might be more readily available at the larger supermarkets. If you need a shopping basket at one of these stores, you will normally need a 50 centimo or a 1 Euro coin to insert into the slot that unlocks the basket from where they are gathered (normally outside the store). When you return the basket to its place, you can retrieve your coin. It´s a very efficient way of keep-
ing the carts together. The supermarkets in Spain are pretty similar to those in the States. Everything is usually logically located according to the type of items that you are looking for: bread, milk, canned goods, meats, fish, beverages, and produce. However, there are some differences. Milk is not refrigerated and is not found in a dairy case. It is usually packed in tetrabrick type containers. Generally speaking, there are three types of milk that are sold: 1) Whole milk (labeled “Entera”), 2) the equivalent of low-fat (labeled “Semi-desnatada”), and 3) non-fat (labeled “Desnatada”). Usually they are sold in packs of six. They will keep on your pantry shelf until you are ready to open them. Afterwards, though, they should be refrigerated. Bread is sold in a variety of forms from regular sliced sandwich bread (known as pan de molde) to large round loafs of bread (known as pan de pueblo). The sandwich bread is pretty standard and the difference between white and whole grain is that the whole grain will usually say “integral” somewhere on the wrapper and will obviously be darker. “Pan de trigo” is wheat bread but not necessarily whole grain and isn´t always darker. If a store has a meat counter, usually there is a number system for serving waiting customers which means that you have to find the dispenser which has paper slips with numbers on them. There will also be a sign with a readout with red numbers on it. The meat counter attendants will usually call out the numbers as they advance the numbers on the sign. Unfortunately, they call out the numbers in Spanish. But, if you keep an eye on the displayed numbers you should be fine. Once you see your number, you can approach the counter and hand the numbered slip of paper to the attendant, who is usually a butcher. You can point to the cut of meat that you want and indicate how much of it you would like, usually by weight in kilos. They will also
grind it for you if you ask them to. This is called “carne picada” (ground meat). They will wrap your purchase and provide a sticker with the price on it so that it can be scanned when you go to the checkout counter. If you do not want to wait to purchase meat, usually there are pre-packaged cuts of meat that are in the display counters nearby. Purchasing fish or seafood is similar in process to purchasing meat but there is a separate counter for each. There is also usually an option to purchase frozen meat and fish that are packaged and in refrigerated counters nearby. Based on a very reliable source, I was told that the best place to buy meat, fish, and fruits/vegetables are those small shops that specialize in each, i.e. butcher shops, seafood shops, and produce shops, versus the supermarkets. I will make an additional note. When you go into a small produce shop you normally cannot handle or gather the fruit or vegetables that you want. You must point it out to the merchant, or tell him/her what you want and they will package it for you. If you are at a larger supermarket, however, and you want to purchase fruits or vegetables, you need to take note of a number that is on the sign beside the fruit item (sometimes it will read “Tecla” which means “key”). Here you can pick out your fruit and put it in a bag, but you must weigh at a machine nearby which will print out a label with the price and weight, which you need to stick on the bag. The Tecla number corresponds with the produce item that you have selected. Generally speaking, the larger food stores, like Carrefour, Hipercor, or Alcampo , will have a larger selection of food and will also include items like dog food or household type items, and even clothes. The smaller supermarkets like Supersol or Mercadona will be more limited as to the variety of items on the shelves, the majority of which will be food items. Dia and Maxi are even smaller still and are more limited as to what they offer. However, stores like Aldi and Lidl although of a similar size as the smallest grocery stores, are interesting since both stores are based in Germany and offer many German brand products, along with Spanish products, and usually at a reasonable price. Of course, there is also the mega-warehouse type store (similar to Costco or Sam´s Club). The only one that I am aware of is in El Puerto and it is called Makro. A membership card is required and is only given to persons with some tie to businesses, although I am sure that I have seen American shoppers at Makro. It could be that they have memberships available for military members. Knowing some of these things before you go shopping on the economy can help ease some of the anxiety associated with this activity, especially if it is just a short trip to pick up some needed items.
