All change

There have been a lot of changes this year with us, the largest of which is rebranding to East Belfast Dental Clinic.

This decision was taken in part because we are now accepting NHS patients; this means that our NHS patients will benefit from all that our private practice offers with the ability to combine both NHS and private treatments – giving the best of both worlds. In addition to this change we are also keen to reflect our overall vision to grow and become a practice that gives back to this great profession!

Staff changes

Peter is now our Clinical Director and he will mentor and advise clinical staff moving forward as well as continue to provide you with the highest quality private dental care.

We are now registered as a training practice with the Belfast Metropolitan College and the first student we welcomed into the practice back in September was Patricia McClure. We are delighted to have Patricia join our team.

Other new additions to the team are Jillian Gamble our new receptionist and Iy Shaw, our new dental nurse. They are both enjoying working within the EBDC team and have both proved themselves invaluable in a very short period of time.

Technology investment

The care you receive will only improve as we have also invested extensively in our technology this year.

Our new website, is going down a treat! A modern, new upgrade to give you a feel for us as a practice and help your friends and family choose to visit us.

Our new Clinipad has been a fantastic addition to our high-tech clinic – your personal and medical details can be automatically updated on our system with the touch of a button. We want you to have a smooth, friendly, trusted journey through our practice and as you leave, you can rate us with on our iPad. Then, if you approve, your all important feedback will be instantly transferred onto our website and twitter feed.

Online booking is now possible on the website too, so come and connect with us online or via social media. Then you’ll never miss out on the exciting news, improvements and events here at the practice.

Inside the practice

Your comfort also means a lot to us. To make your visits to the practice as relaxed as possible we’ve recently made a significant investment to install storage cabinetry and a TV in the reception and waiting rooms. We have further plans to enhance the space, but that will come with time – watch this space.

Our membership fees

Providing you with the best care possible is our top priority and to continue providing this level of care, a small increase has been added to your 2018 membership fees. This reflects the ongoing efforts of our friendly and dedicated team, and ensures that all our equipment is up to date and the most advanced.

We provide a number of ways that you can spread the cost of your dental care so why not share the benefit of budgeting for your dental care with your friends and family? As our clinic grows mainly by word of mouth your referrals are very important to us. So please keep up the good work!

And finally…

We’re lucky to have such friendly and loyal patients at EBDC so, it’s my pleasure to say, on behalf of all the practice team, thank you!

I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon!

Peter McCarron and the team at EBDC.
