Dr. med., Dr. med. dent., Ph.D.
Visiting From Croatia

Snjezana Pohl is both a doctor in general medicine and in dental medicine. She obtains a specialization in oral surgery, periodontology, and implantology.

Although she studied, specialized, and worked in Germany, she is from Croatia and currently based in Rijeka, where she practices, teaches, and mentors.

Dr.Dr. Pohl graduated in Medicine at the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, Croatia and obtained her medical doctorate in 1987. For two years, Dr. Pohl worked in general surgery and orthopedics in Munich, Germany.

In 1997 she graduated from dentistry at Ludwig-Maximilian-University, Munich, Germany and obtained her specialty in Oral Surgery in 2003 at the same university. She acquired her doctorate in dentistry at the University of Cologne, Germany in 2002 and in the same year, Dr. Dr. Pohl obtained her specialization in Periodontology and Implantology from the European Dental Association (EDA).

For over 13 years, she was the co-owner and practiced oral surgery at the Clinic for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Starnberg, Germany.

Since 2010, she is partner at Rident Clinic, Croatia, and head of the Department for Oral Surgery. She also teaches as an assistant professor at the Department of Oral Medicine and Periodontology at the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Rijeka.

Since 2015 she lectures worldwide and became a DentalXP expert. She is also a researcher and published numerous articles in scientific magazines.

In 2020, she published her app to share knowledge and to help practitioners around the world in this specialized field. She brings to the attention that there are no sponsors or companies behind the app, only her own time, dedication, and passion. The procedures in “Decision Matters” are based on what she have found to deliver the best most predictable results. She has included the literature behind, because she believes that it is important for any practitioner to understand the science too.

Each registered participant will receive her app complementary as an ideal addition to her course.

In more than 20 years of experience, she has covered the entire spectrum of oral surgery and periodontology but implant surgical procedures in the esthetic area has always been her focus of interest. From early on in her career, she realized just how collapse prevention is superior to reconstruction and that nothing compares to the results achieved by using autologous tissue.

This meant that she was an early adopter of partial extraction therapy, seeing the value in dentin autograft, tuberosity tissue, and osseodensification. In 2003 she started to combine hard and soft tissue augmentation techniques to treat the Socket Type 2 and 3 and so mIVAN technique was born. In 2020, long term results of up to 11 years with mIVAN technique was published.

Dr.Dr. Pohl is an active member of the European Dental Association (EDA), the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) and the Croatian Society of Periodontology.
