I cannot praise Mr Crutchley and his staff at 15 Dental sufficiently, for the remarkable service I received throughout my treatment. From the amazingly warm welcome from the reception staff, to the fabulously supportive proficient Dental Nurses and the professionalism, expertise, diligence, aftercare and expertise of Mr Crutchley. I went to 15 Dental to have old, dilapidated crowns replaced, and now my friends comment that I ‘ look really well’, but they can’t pinpoint why, as my new crowns look so natural! I am absolutely delighted! Thank you so very much.
Janet-Best hygienist ever, so thorough and professional with a very pleasant personality now I feel that I have been to the dentist after a visit with her, Well Done.

I just want to express my gratitude and absolute delight at the transformation with my gums and teeth, which is totally die to Janet the new hygienist. She is 100% thoroughly and completely dedicated to her patients and their dental health. A real asset to this dental surgery!!
High praise for Ian Crutchley My daughter attended an NHS orthodontist and I was advised that she would need two teeth extracted as obviously there was not enough room for her upper canines to come down.
She also had two teeth trapped on the bottom and that there was no way these teeth could erupt unless two further teeth were extracted. My own dentist stated that, "the only way her lower teeth could erupt was to file a bit off the teeth along side or have them extracted." I had met Ian Crutchley a few years earlier and had over recent years heard from close friends that he was interested in orthodontics and studying under Dr Derek Mahoney specialist orthodontist, carrying out orthodontic work with the new Damon system.
I made an appointment to have my daughter assessed and have not looked back since. Ian reassured me on the first visit that he could fix Cherie's teeth with the Damon system and without any extractions. On that first appointment Cherie had moulds taken and the journey to her beautiful teeth started.
Cherie who was only 13 when her treatment started was horrified when her friends were trailed off to the NHS orthodontist weekly to have their teeth extracted. She was only a child and could not understand why her friends had to have their teeth taken out and their smile compromised when Ian Crutchley could fix their teeth without extraction. Before the treatment was finalised, my son at age 10 was presenting with a more complicated and severe crowding problem, when I decided to have a consultation with another NHS orthodontist who advised me that he needed to wait until his baby teeth had all come out before he could have any orthodontic treatment.
The NHS orthodontist also stated that he would have to have multiple extractions eventually obviously because of the severe crowding, but that we were to go away and return a year later to see how many baby teeth had come out. At this point I took him also to Ian who immediately fitted him with a removable orthotic appliance which was tweaked twice weekly at home and which was engineered to broaden his arch in order to make room to let his teeth rotate and naturally come into their place. This worked very well in allowing his teeth to rotate once the extra space was made.
After the initial orthotic appliance had done its job by making some space for his adult teeth to come through, my son Peter was reassessed and Ian advised that he would benefit drastically if fitted with the Damon system which would align his teeth which had previously been allowed to erupt by the intervention of the orthotic appliance. My son is now coming to the end of his treatment with all his teeth in tact and he is very happy that he is now seeing the result of his many trips to the Upper Lisburn Road and the friendly staff of the Ian Crutchley dental practice.
There obviously is a price to pay for this specialist private treatment, but Ian stated from the onset that he was easy with whatever way I wanted to spread the cost. I paid 25% up front and continued to pay small manageable amounts on each visit until the treatments were finalised.
I have a daughter who loves her beautiful smile as opposed to hiding her awful teeth. She can't understand why her friends don't have teeth like hers, when all they have to do is go to Ian.
My son said to me at the age of ten, "mummy will I have to have these awful teeth for the rest of my life". The answer to that was "no, Ian can fix your teeth too" I would just like to thank Ian, Natalie, Kim and Jan for the fantastic service they have given my two children from which they will continue to enjoy the benefits of for many years to come.
I would highly recommend a consultation with Ian if you have taken your child to an NHS orthodontist who has advised that your child needs multiple extractions.
Many thanks. Cherie Peter and Pamela
