Rating from 85 Reviews I have come home with 27 beautiful crownsMichele, Newtownards Co Down Northern Ireland, 01 Jul 15
I never opened my mouth to smile in photos and I was always very self conscious about my teeth. I wanted all of my teeth crowned and I wanted top notch zirconium. I could never have afforded the treatment at home but could do in Turkey as one zirconium crown costs 600 lira. I booked my appointment with Dt.Ufuk Kayhan last October and a two week holiday in Bitez for June 2015. The only thing I would say to anyone planning to come to Dt. Ufuk maybe if you are not familiar with travelling around on the buses in Turkey, you might want to book a hotel in Yalikavak itself. I went out with 25 teeth which included 4 old crowns and the rest were heavily filled and broken and I have come home with 27 beautiful crowns including 2 bridges. I had read previous reviews all of which were excellent and I wondered are these for real. I have to say, if you are reading this review, all of them are real people with real experiences.
My first visit was on the first day of my holiday 16th June 2015 for 12.00 pm I was greeted by Dt.Ufuk and his assistant, a lovely young lady. I was taken right on time and my treatment took 4 visits and around 9 hours work in total. I know there are other dentists who will say they will do all the work in 5 days but my treatment took 10 days with very little disruption to our holiday. I am trying to give a review here that is honest and not over exaggerated but I have to say that in no time was I in any pain. I practically dosed while Dt. Ufuk prepared all of my top teeth for crowns on the first day. I sat on the chair and he had all of my top teeth prepared in 70 minutes. You may think that is a long time to sit and have your teeth filed down but honestly it as absolutely pain free. Having taken impressions, I was fitted with temps there and then which he made in house and that was the first day. I was able to go back to the hotel with my husband rested for a while to allow the numbness to wear off and then we went out for a meal that night, ok I didn't have a steak but I was able to eat a chicken shish. What I am trying to convey here, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. The second visit was the next day at 4.00pm and I had all the bottom teeth prepared and fitted with temps just like the day before I then did not have to go back until the next Tuesday whilst my new crowns were being made by the lab.
Went back on Tuesday 23rd and Dt.Ufuk removed all the temps and set the new crowns into my mouth. WOW Now I didn't leave with them, he was making sure that they were fitting perfectly and that the bite was right. For this gentleman it's not about aesthetics, it's about the whole mouth. He then removed them again and popped the temps back on having made some minor adjustment to the crowns before sending them back to the lab for final polish. I returned on Thursday afternoon and Dr Ufuk removed all the temps which practically just lifted out, although they hadn't moved on me and he then fitted all of the new crowns, I have to say I am absolutely delighted with them. Listen I could write on and on about this experience because I cannot commend this gentleman enough. I understand that is a big decision to make, especially if me you are having the whole mouth done but I am truly satisfied. One more thing, I went for milk white, although Dr Ufuk recommended B1 and probably this would have been white enough. This guy knows what he's talking about but if it's white you want he will do it, the shade of colour is only a minor detail to him. The important thing is the dentistry and he is FIRST CLASS!!!!!
Dt. Ufuk Kayhan is firstly a perfect gentleman, very humble guy who speaks fantastic English, but he is much more than that. He is a first class dentist who is very professional and skilled at what he does. If you are thinking of travelling to Turkey for dental treatment I would recommend this gentleman 100%. I had looked at other clinics but my heart just led me to this guy and I am so happy I chose him as I do not believe I could have received better treatment anywhere.
By the way this is not a big fancy building just an ordinary dental practice which is spotlessly clean and fitted with all of the up to date tech. The difference it made to me was that I was being treated as an individual who mattered to this guy, I was not just a number passing through Turkey getting a few crowns. No,No, it was much more than that. I was given fist class treatment and attention on every visit.
My husband accompanied me on every visit, which was great, and he too was treated very kindly and kept informed of all that was happening. The whole experience was wonderful, pain free and absolutely no problems. The only thing you may feel if having similar work done is a little bit of tenderness in the upper and lower gums as the injections wear off which is nothing. From the first visit to the end of the treatment, this gentleman is truly first class. A perfect gentleman and a top class dentist. I did ask him why he didn't use before and after images on the site, which he said he may consider. If you are looking for a dentist in Turkey Dt. Ufuk Kayhan is the man.The after care was good and I would definitely recommend him to othersDianne, Yalikavak , 03 Oct 16
I had 4 implants fitted and 2 teeth extracted at the clinic. Dr Ufuk and his partner put me totally at ease and the whole experience was virtually pain free. The after care was good and I would definitely recommend him to others. The clinic is very modern and every care was taken with my treatment. I love the X-ray machine.
