As the hotter months approach, make sure it’s not just your skin that is glowing – take care of those pearly whites too!

Voted the Best Dental Clinic in Europe in 2015, Kreativ Dental Clinic in Budapest can help you to achieve a bright and healthy smile

Today, more and more people are choosing to go abroad for dental care. And for good reason – you can often get treatment abroad for a snip of the price you’d pay here in Ireland. In fact, at Kreativ Dental Clinic in Budapest, you can make savings of approximately 60pc.

Kreativ Dental Clinic, which has welcomed approximately 3,000 patients from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK, as well as patients worldwide, has been providing quality dental care and treatments for the last 17 years.

With dental specialists providing treatments including implants, root canal, and full porcelain crowns, the only way the clinic could work efficiently and keep their high standards, with the increasing demand of the public, was to build an additional clinic, Kreativ Dental 2, beside the present clinic. It’s a development those looking for a new smile will be happy to hear.

Confident smile

Irish representative for the clinic and past patient, Mary Flanagan, is also happy to welcome this expansion. Mary had many problems with her teeth and over the space of 10 years, she had root canal treatments, crowns fitted which later fell out, and eight teeth extracted in Ireland, due to failure of her root canals. Needless to say, she didn’t have the smile she’d dreamed of.

“I was told by an Irish dentist that my only option was dentures and another told me getting work done would cost up to €60,000,” says Mary. “I had so many problems with dentists over the years and my teeth really affected my confidence.

I used to speak to people with my hand covering my mouth and I was unable to chew certain foods. I was advised to visit Kreativ Dental by a retired Irish dentist, and I was apprehensive before making the journey to Budapest – but I can now say that I’m so glad I did.”

Mary ended up having eight implants and 26 porcelain crowns fitted at the much lower price-tag of €12,000, plus €400 for her flights.

“It was absolutely brilliant. 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 position, they can identify with this. It’s wonderful that we now have the additional, new clinic as this will give people more access to quality treatment and at much lower prices.”

Kreativ Dental 2 contains four surgeries, a dental laboratory, CBCT scan and orthopantograph x-ray, consultation rooms, and a spacious garden and terrace for patients to relax. Mary believes that it is the relaxing atmosphere you experience from the moment you walk through the doors – whether that’s of the first or second clinic – along with the experienced and friendly staff, which helps to put you right at ease. So, if you have a fear of dentists, you have nothing to worry about.


Mary is so passionate about the clinic, that she took voluntary redundancy four years ago from an insurance company, where she had worked for 33 years.

Having been through the process herself 11 years ago, she is 100 per cent confident in recommending the clinic, and will even travel to Budapest with those patients who are nervous.

“I travel monthly to Budapest with patients and will be there to support you before you go, while you’re there and when you go home,” says Mary. “This service is unique to Kreativ Dental Clinic and its Irish patients. The clinic provides aftercare dentists in Ireland, and there is a written guarantee on all work, which includes flights and accommodation.

The next available accompanied trip will be on Sunday, 18th June. However, if you are considering booking for any month, I would recommend you book at least two to three months beforehand, as these trips book up within two days.”

So, why not keep on top of your dental health and plan a short holiday to Budapest soon? Not only will you have time to explore a wonderful city, you’ll also return with a beautiful new smile and, very importantly, the ability to chew all foods for a healthy stable diet!
