As another year ends, Kreativ Dental Clinic are proud to have helped thousands of patients from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK alone, as well as many worldwide, to achieve a healthy smile. With the recent announcement of a third clinic being built due to high demand, the clinic is looking forward to welcoming many more patients in the new year.
Recently announced the winner of the ‘International Dental Clinic of the Year 2017 – Europe’ at the GHP Private Healthcare Awards, Kreativ Dental Clinic in Budapest, Hungary, has been providing quality dental care and treatments for the last 17 years. These treatments include implants, root canals, and full porcelain crowns, along with many other treatments, by experienced oral surgeons and dental specialists.
Attila Knott, Owner and Managing Director of Kreativ Dental, says: “To receive this award in recognition of the levels of expertise our dedicated dental and lab team provides, is very satisfying. Our clinic prides itself on the high levels of customer service we provide. We now have 11 patient coordinators providing support to patients during their treatments. The whole team is extremely proud of our award.”
The clinic’s state-of-the-art dental equipment
Since the inception of Kreativ Dental Clinic, a second clinic called Kreativ Dental 2 opened its doors in 2015. Located beside the first clinic, it was built to help manage the high demand from patients worldwide. Today, plans are well underway for the construction of a third clinic, which will also be located beside the other clinics.
“I travelled over to Budapest recently for Kreativ Dental Clinic’s Bi-Annual Conference to hear about all the details of our third clinic,” says Mary Flanagan, the Irish representative for Kreativ Dental. “It is a testament to the professionalism of Kreativ Dental Clinic!”
Mary, who was a past patient at the clinic before becoming the Irish representative, travels over to Budapest with patients from Ireland once a month. Having had many problems with her teeth before, she was told by a dentist that getting work done here would cost up to €60,000. She was then advised by a retired Irish dentist to visit Kreativ Dental, where she made savings of over €40,000.
“It was absolutely brilliant,” says Mary. “I finally got my confidence back and I couldn’t be happier with my teeth. I have also returned to a good healthy, stable diet. Many people who call us tell us they can’t eat, so when I say that I was in the same situation, they can identify with this. I travel over with patients to help put their mind at ease and answer any questions they may have.”
A comprehensive consultation and OPG x-ray at home could average at least €80, while at Kreativ Dental it is free. In addition, Kreativ Dental offers a written guarantee on all work, and aftercare is also provided in Ireland. Mary’s role is to advise clients on when and how to secure the best value flights to Budapest. She also organises free airport transfers, as well as booking the clinic appointments and hotel accommodation. Treatment costs will depend on a patient’s personal situation and a full breakdown of costs will be provided in writing. Patients can make savings of at least 60pc and they can also claim tax back.
A calm and relaxing atmosphere in the clinic’s waiting room
New year, new smile
For many people, searching for and visiting dental clinics can be daunting. However, Kreativ Dental clinics have a calm and relaxing atmosphere, with fish tanks, comfy chairs and computer tablets to keep patients occupied and at ease while waiting. Irish celebrities such as model Claire Tracey, TV presenter Tina Koumarianos and snooker player Ken Doherty have also visited in the past.
Claire Tracey says of her experience in the clinic: “When I arrived at Kreativ Dental, I felt my initial nerves and fear of dentists disappear. The clinic is like a hotel and the staff were so welcoming and lovely. They carried out an OPG x-ray, which was examined by the team of specialists, and gave me a treatment plan. There was no pain whatsoever throughout the treatment and I actually found that once one procedure was done, I was trying to find some other reason to go back to Kreativ Dental and Budapest!”
A trip over to the clinic can be treated as a holiday – and in the New Year, you could definitely do with one of those! After your visit to Kreativ Dental, you can explore the city of Budapest. Relax at the Széchenyi Baths, see the beautiful Art Nouveau architecture, and take photos of impressive sights such as the Hungarian Parliament Building, Buda Castle and Fisherman’s Bastion.
Mary says: “You can arrange your own flights for whenever suits you best, however the next available accompanied trips will be on Sunday, 14th January and Sunday, 18th February. The sooner flights are booked, the less expensive it will be. However, if you are considering booking for any month, I would recommend you book at l
