Patient Case 1

Testimonial from Dr. Oliver Hunter

I have just completed a prolonged course of treatment for replacement of existing teeth with dental implants and a retained bridge. This involved 4 extractions, 1 diagnostic wax-up and surgical stent, 2 sinus lifts, 6 dental implants and a retained porcelain bonded bridge (10 teeth).

My first appointment was in Oct 2007 and extended over a period of 10 months with approximately 10 appointments at which time the porcelain bridge was in situ.

I got to know David well and was impressed with his clinical and surgical skills. As you are aware a number of the procedures are lengthy and somewhat traumatic but all were performed with no pain and the minimum of discomfort. I was kept informed at all times about what was going on at the clinical level which I appreciated very much.

At the first consultation besides the verbal information I was given a comprehensive document explaining the various sequential procedures all of which was easily understood. The reception waiting room and surgery were welcoming as were all the staff. I was also impressed by the technical equipment.

At the personal level I found David meticulous and patient. I asked him did he like what he was doing and he said rather reluctantly that he loved his work. In this I got the impression that he felt he was somewhat out of the line with some of his colleagues who did not necessarily like what they did. Personally I would not want to attend any Professional who was not interested in their work. I would have no hesitation in recommending David to anyone contemplating dental implants.

Patient Case 2

Testimonial from Ian Hemmingway

I knocked two of my front teeth out playing rugby in March '08. I needed both extracted and dental implants fitted. I visited a dentist in Dublin who quoted me double the price that I received in the treatment package I took with Dr. Nelson. Initially my reasons for choosing the Clinic were the value for money and its reputation. My online research pointed to the Clinic being one of the top surgeries in Northern Ireland.

From day one I was very impressed with the facilities, professional approach and friendliness at the practice. At first the process of having my front teeth removed and replaced made me nervous. Any apprehension disappeared after my first consultation with Dr. Nelson. Everything was explained and executed very thoroughly. Dr. Nelson and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed.

I could not have been happier with the results and treatment process. After my implants were complete I elected to have some further dental work done. The only time I had to disagree with Dr. Nelson was when it came to team selection for the next Irish rugby international!

Patient Case 3

Testimonial from Anne O'Neill

I first consulted David Nelson in August 2007 with a view to having dental implantation and bridgework carried out.

Having made an assessment, David Nelson decided that I was a suitable candidate for such procedures.  I had been wearing dentures for almost forty years and, as a result, needed a bone graft in my upper jaw before the implants could be inserted.  David Nelson commenced treatment in October 2007 and completed work in July 2008.  This work involved the insertion of four implants in the front upper jaw and bridgework on both sides of the same jaw.

I am absolutely delighted with the finished product which is both extremely comfortable and aesthetically perfect - something I always wished for but didn't think possible especially given the fact that I am 61 years of age.

I can safely state that I never once experienced any pain throughout the long treatment sessions which I feel is a testament to David Nelson's expertise and great consideration for his patients' comfort.

I cannot commend David Nelson enough for his professionalism, skill and dedication and I sincerely thank him and his staff for their unfailing courtesy and kindness to me throughout.
