About Cavehill Dental Care

Situated on the picturesque Cavehill Road, the practice, established 45 years ago, has a long history of excellence. Under the watchful eye of Dr Martin MacAllister, the practice has grown into one of the largest in Northern Ireland, and one of the largest placer of Dentsply Dental Implants in Ireland.

Assisted by Catherine Lyttle, Jessica Mc Donough, Kate Wylie and Tracey Houston, they continue to provide an honest, no nonsense service, and pride themselves in "going the extra mile" to please the clients. 

We are currently upgrading our new Hygiene suite, which has been designed to the highest standard by Tracey. It is due to open in February 2016, and will be a new standard in terms of its slickness! Press release in due course!

"I have no hesitation in recommending"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 10 Sep 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Immediate Implant Placement
I can not recommend Cavehill Dental Care highly enough. There are no words to express how truly wonderful a job Marty, (practice principal) did for me. After losing my front tooth over 25 years ago, (I'm only in my late 30's) so I was very young when it happened, and following years of having a badly fitting ugly crown, followed by a denture, then another crown, Marty gave me back my smile. The whole experience from my very first consultation right up to the post surgery review, could not have been better. Everyone I dealt with, and those I didn't, in the clinic we super lovely, incredibly empathetic, and an absolute pleasure to have met and have dealt with. Cavehill Dental are the absolute best dental practice in the Country, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who needs their smile fixed :-)
Total Amount Paid £1,860

"It was a very good experience"
100%Reviewed 16 Apr 2017 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Quite a lot of work done i.e. two implants, a couple of roots out and some fillings. Over all, a very good experience and I am not a great dental patient.

I am terrified of the dentist due to past negative experiences. I have been going to Dr Jessica for over a year now. I required quite a lot of work, as I had not been to any dentist for over 10 years. The prices were all discussed pre treatment. So, I knew what I was to pay. There were options, which were all explained to me. From the moment I have walked through the door, to leaving the surgery I have had the highest level of care. The reception staff appear to fully understand the patients. The dental nurses have been brilliant and Dr Jessica is an excellent dentist. She is highly skilled plus she actually cares about her patients and their individual needs.

She is dedicated to her role as dentist. I could recommend this surgery to anyone. Plus if you have dental fears, this is an excellent place to get treatment. You will be listened to and understood and given the best options. There is no pressure re treatment. Each patient can make their own choice based on their needs. My advice is give them a ring. You will be surprised at the level of care and professionalism which exists in this surgery. LH

"I am very happy with the results"
100%Reviewed 23 Mar 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
My mum signed me in here to get my teeth corrected as I wanted them all straight and nice. I was very happy with Dr Kate Wylie who was very sweet, gentle and worked so nicely on putting my braces. She gave clear instructions and followed up everything thoroughly. I am very happy with the results.

I read the online reviews and decided to take my daughter Annette there . She signed in for a six month smile with Dr Kate Wylie and at the end of it was overjoyed with the results. The dental practice is superb. Nothing to fault them for. We have once got the wrong date and they still managed to accomodate her. The staff , the atmosphere and everything about this practice is top notch. Very impressed and would recommend it to anybody.

"Amazed at how natural my crowns looked"
100%Reviewed 14 Sep 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Crowns
I was seen by Jessica McDonough who was most professional in her approach as to what could be achieved and the way ahead with my treatment plan. I had old crowns removed, impressions made, and temporary crowns fitted in one visit. Within ten days I had my new crowns fitted, I can honestly say that I was amazed at how much more natural they looked compared to my old ones. I am so happy with the outcome, and have now got my smile back. I really can't thank Jessica enough.

From my initial telephone call I was impressed with the receptionists knowledge and her positive attitude in regard to my questions about possible treatment, on my first visit I was made very welcome and directed to the waiting room which was spacious and comfortable. I was introduced to Jessica who was the dentist that would be treating me.

Bone Graft
This is a common dental procedure. In periodontology, it is used to support natural teeth and in dental implant procedures, it is used where there is insufficient bone to fix the implants. The bone graft replaces missing bone lost from previous dental extractions, injuries, accidents, cysts, periodontal disease and infections.
€1092  -  €2729

We can provide removable, fixed, tooth coloured fixed and also sixmonthsmiles.

Six Month Smiles™

We have three sixmonthsmiles registered dentists in the practice, Jessica, Kate and Catherine. They would be delighted to consult and discuss possibilities. 

Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

We do not charge for preliminary consultation regarding cosmetic dentistry, this has been the same for the last 20 years!

Dental Bridges
BRIDGES are very useful in replacing missing teeth by using the standing teeth on either side of the gap to support the ‘false tooth’, known as a pontic. The porcelain pontic is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in one area left by a missing tooth. These bridges are permanently cemented in your mouth, where they can help to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
€382  -  €546
Dental Crowns
CROWNS may be used to repair broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth or again to improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. They differ from veneers in that they encase the whole part of the tooth that is above the gum. The porcelain finish of the veneer or crown can be matched to your own natural tooth shading, or if you choose to restore all of your teeth then you can decide to have a lighter, brighter shade all over.
Dental CT

Only if necessary, not taken as a routine!

€1310  -  €2183
Dental Implants
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is a screw, which is cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughness on the implant surface.

Surgical Extractions
Wisdom tooth may be extracted because it is causing you problems or perhaps to prevent problems that may arise in the future. Problems with wisdom teeth can arise because your jaw may not be large enough to accommodate them, and they may become impacted and unable to break through the gum properly. Any unerupted tooth that has formed but failed to emerge into the mouth can damage surrounding teeth, gums and supporting bone. Because of this risk, unerupted teeth are often surgically extracted. As already mentioned, this is often the case with wisdom teeth. However, it is common to find unerupted canine teeth sitting in the palate (roof of mouth). We can pull these teeth slowly into position with the use of orthodontic appliances after surgically exposing them.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
WHITE FILLINGS are now becoming a popular alternative to amalgam fillings. The new dental materials mean it is much easier to find a perfect match for the shade of a particular tooth. In most cases, it is almost impossible to see that the tooth even has a filling.

Removable appliance - a plastic plate that can be taken out to be cleaned. It has delicate wires and springs attached, which move the teeth using gentle pressure. Fixed appliance - Often teeth need to be guided more accurately than they can be using a removable plate. Fixed appliances are brackets and bands temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. Invisible Braces - We also offer state of the art ‘invisible braces. ’ These are tough, clear, plastic ‘positioners’ that are used to gradually straighten your teeth. Several sets of specially moulded positioners are made. Each set moves the teeth slightly from the previous position and is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set. Each set is straighter than the last and the final set will be your desired result.
