Portuguese retailer Sonae MC has launched its first clinic, Dr. Well's, specialising in dental and aesthetic medicine.
The new Dr. Well’s clinic is part of the company's strategy to provide access to quality health care services in Portugal, and 'improve people's health and quality of life'.
The clinic opened on Friday 19 May at the Colombo Shopping Centre in Lisbon, after a total of €600,000 was invested into its development.
The facility employs 25 people, ranging from specialised doctors to support staff.

Luís Moutinho, CEO of Sonae MC, said, "At Sonae MC we are focused on our mission to develop new business areas that can add value to society. Launching the first Dr. Well’s is a new step we are taking in the segment of health and wellness.
“We are launching our first clinic providing quality, improvement and preventive health care services, relying on specialised medical teams and treatments with benchmark equipment, that will allow people to remain healthy and feeling better for a longer period of time.”
The clinic will provide treatment and support in the areas of implantology, prosthodontics, orthodontics, aesthetic dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, periodontology and oral hygiene. Sonae aims to open five more Dr. Well’s clinics by the end of 2017.
At the end of 2016, as part of this campaign to lead the area of health and wellness in Portuguese retail, Sonae opened the first Go Natural supermarket format with a focus on promoting a healthy lifestyle.
