Chief Dental Officer, Faroe Islands
A friendly dentist, close to home.
“Trustworthy dentists see every patient as an individual, they take time to listen to their every concern and make their long-term oral health a top priority.”
Dr Tórunn finds great joy in improving the lives of her patients and connecting with them on a personal level. She is passionate about preventive and minimally invasive dentistry. She firmly believes that healthy smiles can be achieved with patient education and doing as little invasion as possible.
A staunch believer in ‘complete dentistry’, she treats the oral cavity as a whole. She says ‘teeth cannot be treated like a patchwork blanket’. Oral health is paramount. A patient interested in aesthetic must maintain excellent oral health to ensure the success of the aesthetic treatment.
Dr. Tórunn brings to Snö a wealth of experience having practiced dentistry for over 20 years, mostly in Denmark. She is a well-regarded leader in Snö, since she started two years ago, with exemplary leadership skills. Her drive to ensure the team at Snö work together to maintain the highest standards of quality and trust, makes her an ideal fit for Snö’s next stage of growth. Her cheerful demeanor and optimistic personality immediately puts patients at ease in her care and ensures a pleasant dental experience.
Dr Tórunn graduated from the University of Copenhagen – School of Dentistry. She ran a successful dental practice in the centre of Copenhagen while teaching dental students at the School of Dentistry, Copenhagen University. She obtained her M. Sc. in Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry with distinction from the University of Manchester in England. Her practice involves all aspects in general dentistry, with emphasis on minimally invasive restorative dentistry and its impact on occlusion and the temporomandibular joint. She continues to stay abreast with the latest advancements in dentistry and is currently halfway through a postgraduate study provided by the Dawson Academy, UK.
Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and staying active in a variety of outdoor pursuits like hiking, tennis and waterskiing.
