DR. MED. DENT. & MMed SANDRA FATORI (CEO)
Dr. med. dent. & MMed Sandra Fatori first attended secondary school up until 1995 at the Gymnasium Essen-Überruhr (Germany) before obtaining her “Abitur” or general higher education entrance qualification in the USA – at Bishop MC Cort Catholic High School in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
Following this, she studied preclinical dentistry at the universities of Belgrade (Serbia) and Cologne (Germany) before transferring to Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany) to study preclinical and clinical dentistry between 2000 and 2003. She obtained her licence to practise dentistry (“Approbation”) in Weimar (Germany) in 2004.
Between 2004 and 2007, she took up three posts as a dental assistant:
One in Meiningen (Germany) at the Zahnarztpraxis M. Krampe and two in Zurich (Switzerland) at the Zahnärztegemeinschaft am Bellevue and her father’s practice Dr. Dr. Branislav Fatori.
She completed a PhD in Periodentology at Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. med. dent. Gisela Klinger and acquired the degree of “Dr. med. dent.” passed with distinction (summa cum laude).
This laid the foundations for her passionate interest in dental science. Since 2006, she has authored and co-authored scientific contributions published in both national and international scientific journals. Between 2006 and 2007, she obtained a postgraduate diploma in implantology from the German Society for Implantology (DGI).
Dr. med. dent. & MMed Sandra Fatori’s markedly cosmopolitan career history – encompassing posts in Essen, Johnstown, Belgrade, Cologne, Jena and Zurich – eventually led in 2007 to the realisation of her dream of founding her own dental practice in the heart of Zurich.
She studied human medicine part-time at the University of Zurich up until 2013, obtaining the degree of “Master Humanmedizin (MMed UZH)” with a thesis entitled “Classification of Complications in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery”, supervised by Prof. Dr. Dr. Klaus Grätz. Dr. med. dent. & MMed Sandra Fatori is therefore doubly qualified – as both a dentist and a doctor.
During her training in human medicine, she gained valuable experience in the treatment of tooth, jaw and facial injuries, dental implants and 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography imaging in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the University Hospital Zurich.
As a dentist, she specialises in complex aesthetic rehabilitation with fixed dental prostheses, dental implantology and surgery.
At the renowned New York University (NYU) in the USA, Dr. med. dent. & MMed Sandra Fatori completed an Internship in the Department of Implant Dentistry and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and was called for interview in the autumn of 2014.
Following her parents’ motto to engage in lifelong learning to ensure you are always up to date with the latest developments, in 2016 she began a further advanced two-year postgraduate degree in implantology at the Swiss Society for Implantology (SGI).
As such, Dr. med. dent. & MMed Fatori, together with her highly trained practice team, is specialised in performing the most complex of dental procedures, even on patients with deteriorating general medical health. Hospitals, general practitioners and large international corporations consider her a partner for all of their dental queries and referrals.
She realised her vision to collaborate with her older sister Dr. stom. Ivana Radaković in 2015, following the merger and founding as CEO (Managing Director) of the international practice network dentalsisters, with practices in Zurich and Oberhausen.
In order to consistently provide their patients with state-of-the-art dentistry backed by the latest scientific findings, the two “dental sisters” are members of numerous medical societies and attend conferences on a regular basis.

- Member of the “Akademie Praxis und Wissenschaft”, Dusseldorf
- Member of the Swiss Dental Association, SSO
- Member of the Zurich Branch of the Swiss Dental Association, SSO Zurich
- Member of the Swiss Society for Paediatric Dentistry, SVK
