I would highly recommend Dr Michael Ryan’s orthodontic practice, which was recommended to me by a colleague. After exploring a few options I decided to go with Dr Ryan as his orthodontic approach to my particular issue suited me. Also his quote was the most favourable. Dr Ryan and his team are very professional and efficient. They are warm and friendly, and provided me with advice and support pre, during and post my treatment with braces. Dr Ryan is an expert at his profession and has many years experience under his belt, this being evident in the precision and skill applied during my treatment. I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of my treatment. Dr Ryan and team take a bow!
We were initially very concerned at the layout of Rachael’s teeth, particularly on the lower jaw where some teeth were twisted to the point of being close to 90 degrees out of position. There was no space available for the teeth to move into, even if they correctly aligned. It was hard to see how any treatment could take place that would not involve the extraction of two or more teeth to create space for the realignment. How wrong we were! Dr Ryan was recommended to us by friends. The first pleasant surprise was financial. Pricing proved to be very competitive and it was possible to spread the payments out over the two years of treatment. This made the cost easier to manage but also gave certainty as the cost was fixed, irrespective of how long the actual treatment might take. The treatment itself has been an outstanding and profound success. No extractions required and over time Rachael’s teeth were gradually and skillfully realigned into the perfect set they now are. I still look at her teeth in disbelief! Before long our second daughter is likely to require similar treatment. We will have no hesitation in using Dr Ryan’s practice once more, and would strongly recommend him to any prospective patient.
Getting braces at the age of 26 was a daunting thought. I was worried about how they’d look, if people would notice, if my speech would be impaired. But having now been through the process, to say I’m delighted is an understatement. I’m over the moon with the results. Looking back on old photographs of myself, I have wondered why I waited so long to be happy with my smile. From my initial consultation Michael and his team were wonderful. Their knowledge and expertise was evident from the beginning. I always felt very comfortable in their abilities at every appointment. Regular checkups with Michael kept me excited at the prospect of eventually getting them off. It has been one of the best investments of time and money I have ever made and I will reap the rewards of it for the rest of my life. I am so grateful to Michael and his team for giving me a smile to be proud of!
Michael Ryan has been treating orthodontic patients referred from my dental practice since 1995. My patients have always been very satisfied with the quality of the treatment provided, none more so than my three daughters Ailbhe, Nicola and Zita!
