Dr. Cris Piessens began his journey in Belgium (Brussels) in 1987 with his own practice. After a few years, he decided to move to the sunny and warm Algarve in Portugal. He settled in Albufeirense lands in 1994 with a clinic made up of 2 consultation rooms and a reception. Due to the success of the clinic, between 2000 and 2003, an additional consultation room was built and operating room.
