About 15 Dental Belfast

Dr. Ian Crutchley offers a comprehensive service to all his patients in a relaxed friendly enviroment. By being able to treat patients using a multi-discipline approach we can tailor-make your dental treatment. For example using orthodontics, spaces can be opened for implants, teeth can be moved to better positions, & any resultant treatment is therefore more stable and comfortable. Put simply - if you visit a crown & bridge specialist, you're a crown & bridge case. If you go to an implant specialist, you're an implant case. We prefer to take a whole mouth approach, taking the best bits of all treatments that are going to get you the best results, & letting the patient be guided by information. Treatment is only provided with your full understanding of our proposals, and we explain things in plain English. Common sense and information are hard to beat! One of Ian's particular interests is the provision of an orthopaedic approach to his orthodontic treatment, trying where possible to avoid extracting healthy teeth, and instead developing the jaws to accomodate the teeth nature intended. He has a particular interest in treating Skeletal Class 3 cases without the need for surgery, and has had many successful instances of this type of treatment. So if you have been told surgery is your only option, that may not be the case, and the younger this type of treatment is started, the better the outcome.

"Highly professional"

Treatment Received: Root Canals
Molar Root Canal

Ian Crutchley and his team provided a highly professional yet personable and friendly dental service. From my first contact with Ian when he telephoned me in response to a query posted through this website he provided a clear and concise account of the possible approaches to my dental problem, the issues involved and the potential cost.

I had been told by a Dublin dentist, accurately, that I required a root canal treatment on an upper molar (sixth). He estimated that the cost for just the root canal treatment would be upwards of €900 (£773). The cost at Crutchley's Dental Surgery for root canal treatment (excluding subsequent filling) was €565 (£485).

This is not suggest that this is a "bargain basement" dental practice as I found the clinic, located on the Lisburn Road, a far more pleasant physical environment than anything I had experienced in the Republic of Ireland. Likewise the surgery was equiped with the most modern of dental technologies.

However, what distinguishes this clinic was the extremely high level of dental craft delivered in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Throughout my procedure, which took slightly over 2 hours, I experienced little pain or discomfort and the whole character of the treatment was epitomised in the "painless injection" at its commencement (a local anaesthetic was applied via a roll of cotton placed in the side of the mouth and then Ian very slowly injected a anaesthetic). Thereafter, Ian and his assistant, Cathy, undertook the treatment in a patient and diligent manner. At all stages my questions on the procedure were clearly answered.

My root canal took place almost one week ago and I have not experienced any significant pain since and the filled tooth feels fine in my mouth.

"I would absolutely recommend"
4.8 50Reviewed 25 Aug 2011 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Complex Root Canal
I needed a complicated root canal filling and was referred to an endodontist in ROI. I felt the price quoted was prohibitive so I contacted Dr Crutchlys clinic ... and am I glad I did? From the first phone call Dr Crutchley made to me to discuss the case, until I left his surgery, I found him to be welcoming, friendly, approachable & full of banter, yet all the while being informative, professional and most importantly, excellent at his work. I was over 90 mins in the chair (root filling and re build) and Dr Crutchley kept me updated on progress every step of the way. His easy, yet competent manner made it impossible to be nervous. The clinic itself is modern, bright and very pleasant, and the staff are welcoming, chatty and friendly. It was well worth the trip from the West of Ireland, and I saved over €250, even with travel costs included. I would absolutely recommend this clinic and will be going back for my crown.

"Would highly recommend"
4.7 50Reviewed 23 Nov 2010 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment? We live in County Wexford in the Republic and both my wife and I required substantial repair and reconstruction treatment. In particular my wife wanted to get rid of a denture she had required for over 30 years while I have suffered with a lifelong phobia that prevented me getting any kind of dental work done for over 30 years.

In the Republic every dental surgery we visited wanted over €15,000 for our treatments and the whole attitude we encountered was clinical, cold and unfriendly and all about the money.

Research led us to Dr Ian Crutchly's practice on the Lisburn Road in Belfast which is quite a journey from Wexford.

After an initial visit which was very relaxed and friendly, Ian proposed a treatment plan for each of us which we were very comfortable with and was very much more affordable. I should point out that Dr Crutchley doesn't do cheap or bargain basement but compared to the Republic his prices are vastly more realistic.

Our treatments were such that we had to visit Belfast on three occasions and we made a shopping trip out of each one. Every time we arrived Dr Crutchley and his entire staff made us feel very much at ease at each visit.

On one such visit we stayed overnight at a local hotel and my wife had a small problem the next morning. We contacted the surgery to discover it was Dr Crutchley's day off but while we were on the line Jan, his receptionist, rang him and he said to come to the clinic and he would go straight there to see my wife.

All our friends and family have commented on the high quality of the work we had done and we would highly recommend anybody looking for the highest standards in dental care to contact Dr Crutchley.

While our main treatments are now completed we are looking forward to visiting Ian and his staff in the New Year.
Would you recommend the clinic? Absolutely and without reservation.
Would you return for further treatment? Yes - we consider Dr Crutchley to be our permanent dental care provider.

"Very impressed"
5 50Reviewed 12 Jun 2010 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment? yes i was very pleased! To be honest i think he is the best dentist i have ever been to! Ian Crutchly and his staff are very friendly+ professional! I have been scared of dentists over the years but i acually cant wait to get back for my next appointment to see the outcome of the treatment. basicly i had 2 botched route canals previously by dentists in enniskillen, which left me with an abscess, it has been there for years. my first appointment i think the state of my tooth shocked ian, but he said he wasnt goin to send me home after traveling to belfast without doing any work, it turned out to be a bugger of a job so ian called my boyfriend in and sent his emploees home, i have to admit i was very impressed that he kept the surgery open 4 me, any other dentist would have gave me another appointment to come back! the root of the tooth had been badly damaged by previouse root canals and he explained everything clearly to me, and showed me pictures of what he aimed to do. He cleared away the absess to my relief and tempory filled the tooth till my next appointment. on my next appointment he explained that the root of the tooth had been badly damaged and even if he done the root canal i would still have problems, at this point i felt like crying and i said i wished i had the tooth pulled from the begining, it would have saved me alot of pain and of course alot of money. he said this would be the best option for me in the long run but unfortunatly i could not afford to pay for a bridge as the price of the root canal had already left me broke. I am so happy that ian has offered to do the bridge at the same price. my tooth was pulled, absess cleared and i have a nice white tempory tooth in the space until my next appointment.
Would you recommend the clinic? yes i would recomend this clinic, in fact i already have to my friends+family
Would you return for further treatment? yes i would return it was well worth the journy from enniskillen, shame he not nhs but then again don't think you would get this treatment with nhs, hence my reason for traveling to belfast!

"Professional, friendly and cost effective"
4.2 50Reviewed 01 Jun 2010 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Molar Root Canal
Were you pleased with the treatment? The treatment was professional, friendly and cost effective. I have suffered with periodic pain in my lower molar tooth (despite numerous visits to my local dentists here in Dublin) since 2006. The 4 hour round trip to Belfast and back was well worth the trouble. Dr Crutchleys all round knowledge of the various fields of dentistry was impressive and reassuring.
Would you recommend the clinic? Dr. Crutchley and his staff were very friendly. They made me feel very comfortable from the outset. The information provided prior to treatment was second to none.
Would you return for further treatment? I would most definitely return for further treatment. I have already recommended the practice to family, friends and work colleagues.

"Friendly and helpful"

Treatment Received: Dental X-Ray,Dentist Consultation,Fillings
Were you pleased with the treatment? Ian & staff are friendly and helpful. I was given an emergency appointment; they phoned on Monday with a space for the Wednesday. I had a full consultation which included examination & xrays, had a filling done and a proposal regarding the further treatment I need is being sent to me. From which I can plan further treatments.
Would you recommend the clinic? I have no hesitation in recommending the clinic, they are fast: prompt reply to my enquiry, friendly, efficient, courteous, and thorough. I was especially delighted to have treatment done on my first visit, as opposed to just a check up which I was told "is standard practice" from a different clinic; I wasn`t travelling 100 miles for 15 mins work! There is loads of off street parking, and I was offered a cupa while waiting in the sumptous waiting room. The period exterior hides a modern and hi tech dental practice which encompasses many different dental treatments, ie. fillings, implants, orthodontics, root canals plus many others- phone for details.
Would you return for further treatment? Yes, I intend to return soon for more work.
