New Year, New You

2017 was a busy year for the 18 Dental team and we are back ready for 2018.


We’re really looking forward to helping more patients smile with confidence this year.


Discrete orthodontic braces are a growing trend amongst more and more adults. For too long many people felt deeply unhappy about their smile but didn’t know how to ‘fix’ it.


As a result we are getting more and more requests for orthodontic opinions by adults who perhaps didn’t have the opportunity to have braces when they were younger, or who didn’t understand the importance of wearing retainers when their treatment was finished as teenagers.


Such a patient recently completed discrete braces treatment here at 18 Dental.  He wouldn’t smile for the camera whilst taking his before photos as he just didn’t like to show his teeth.  See the remarkable transformation for yourself.  You can’t fake a true smile!











Call us on 02870327057 for find out how we can help transform your smile in 2018.



Dentist Ursula is crowned the new British Gymnastics Champion

Following a busy summer in which dentist Ursula attended her first ever national gymnastics competition, Ursula did herself proud by winning the over 40s title and gold all around medal in the Adults Gymnastics British Championship.  Since then she’s been busy in local press including the Coleraine Chronicle, Belfast Telegraph, has been interviewed by Pamela Ballentine for UTV Life.  She was awarded Sports woman of the Year by Coleraine mayor Joan Baird last night and will be interviewed on Radio 4 Saturday Live programme this weekend 14 October.  Listen in from 9am to hear her incredible story from recreational gymnast to British champion.

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a peaceful Christmas and are ready to face the new Year and all the excitement that 2017 has in store.


If not why not let us help you show your best possible side.


From whitening those smiles, to straightening your teeth…perhaps an air-polish to blow away the coffee and red wine stains from the festivities?


Or maybe soften a few wrinkles after indulging in a few late nights of partying?


The 18 Dental team can help.


With free consultations by our implant co-ordinator and payment plans available, we can brighten your year and give you the great start to 2017!

Welcome our new Sirona 3D CT scanner

At 18 Dental we don’t like to follow the crowd but lead it.






In keeping with this ethos we are delighted to announce our most recent investment: the Sirona ORTHOPHOS XG 3D CBCT Scanner.  The first of its kind in Coleraine, it is an exciting adjunct to the services on offer at 18 Dental.






This ensures that our patients can benefit from the latest advances in dental technology and treatment planning with the Sirona 3D CT scanner.pi_orthophos_xg_3d_endovolumen_200






The scanner uses 21st century 3 dimensional imaging of head and neck anatomy.





Following staff training last week the scanner is now fully operational not only for the benefit for our patients but is available to referring dentists whose patients require a CT scan.
