Something to smile about!

Achieve your perfect smile at Kreativ Dental Clinic in Budapest, Hungary.

Kreativ Dental Clinic in Budapest was recently announced winner of the ‘International Dental Clinic of the Year 2017 – Europe’ at the GHP Private Healthcare Awards. The clinic has welcomed thousands of patients from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK over the last 18 years, with many patients also travelling from various parts of Europe.

Attila Knott, Owner and Managing Director of Kreativ Dental, says: "To receive this award in recognition for 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. This award is for the team as a whole and we are extremely proud."


Quality care

Kreativ Dental Clinic has been providing quality dental care and treatments – including implants, root canals, and full porcelain crowns – for the last 17 years, by oral surgeons and dental specialists. The clinic conforms to, and often exceeds, the most stringent of EU regulations and requirements. All dental specialists are honest about the exact treatment you need and they will ensure that you receive quality care and treatment.

Irish representative for the clinic and past patient, Mary Flanagan, says: “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. I had so many problems with dentists over the years, and my teeth affected my confidence. I was advised to visit Kreativ Dental by a retired Irish dentist, and I ended up having eight implants and 26 porcelain crowns fitted at the much lower price-tag of €12,000, plus €400 for my flights.”

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 tax back can be claimed similar to visiting an Irish dentist.

A calm and relaxing atmosphere in the clinic’s waiting room

With the increasing demand of the public, the only way the clinic could work efficiently and keep their high standards was to build an additional clinic, Kreativ Dental 2, beside the present clinic. There is now also a third clinic being built close by. The 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!”

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 least two to three months beforehand, as these trips do fill up quickly.”
