Dr. Anikó Fazekas

General Dentist

“I graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Szeged in Hungary. I am really interested in the whole concept of prevention of dental problems, so I did my thesis on it. Education and developing healthy oral hygiene habits are vital and will save people so much trouble and expense! I worked in a private practice in my home town where I gained a lot of experience.

I was delighted to have a lot of young patients and teach them all about good dental care. I’m very actively involved with professional training, and I constantly attend post- grad courses to maintain a high level of quality care and knowledge base. Dentistry is constantly evolving so I love learning about state-of-the art techniques and treatment protocols. I enjoy using the most innovative products in dentistry, and we have superb equipment at Smile Store.

My aim is convince my patients of the importance of prevention as the old saying is so true-that prevention is always easier than the cure! I have a genuine enthusiasm for dentistry. I believe in trying to preserve the natural dentition, or people’s own teeth, as much as possible, using minimally invasive techniques-the days of yanking out every tooth with a problem are thankfully long gone. I’m also really interested in orthodontics, which is the study of the gums.

I’m a second generation dentist in my family. My mother is an orthodontic specialist, and she sparked this passion I have for dentistry and the overwhelming curiosity about orthodontics in general. I am a registered member of the Dental Council of Ireland. Outside of the practice I enjoy travelling and sport-whenever I get the time!”

As of now, absolutely satisfied with the procedures I’ve had in the clinic. Professional and pleasant staff. Would definitely recommend to others.

The staff are courteous and polite. The treatment involving anaesthetic always seemed appropriate to the task at hand and I felt I was in good hands, at no time in pain, in spite of my own not uncommon anxiety around going to the dentist. I have beed educated through the course of my treatment with regard to the ongoing care of my teeth and dental hygiene.

The reason I came here in the first place was economical but I stayed for the firm but compassionate professionalism.

I have had an implant and root canal treatment with crowns here at Smile Store. The treatment I received is ” gold standard”. Clinical excellence, up-to-date diagnostic imaging, excellent and kind patient care, speedy and immediate follow-up with any queries after treatments. Smile Store provides a cost effective, high quality service.

I was given different treatment plan options to choose from, complete with explanations and prices. On an ongoing basis the treatment was explained in words and on the computer screen and questions regarding treatment were welcomed and answered. I could not fault the treatment itself & dentist and dental nurses seamed considerate & efficient, and I am pleased with the result.

Totally professional in every aspect. From the moment you walk in the door, every aspect of the Smile Store is exceptional. I started with a consultation, everything was explained to me with several options offered. After choosing the Straumann implants, everuthing went according to plan. The quotation was broken down with various payments over the time of the treatment. It cost exactly what was quoted day one, not a penny more. The visits were scheduled and on time every time. The team were amazing and the finish product – “The Smile” – PERFECT. It’s an absolute pleasure to recommend The Smile Store.

“I have never seen so much care and professionalism in my life. After many bad experiences I’ve always been terrified of going to the dentist but from the reception with Thomas, to the room with Dr Kádár, Dr. Anikó and Maria it has been very pleasant, a word that normally is not associated with dentistry, but it is true. They are truly professionals and very gentle with a “scary cat” like me. Thanks very much to all, i am for once, looking forward to continue with the treatment with you. I already recommended to many friends.”

“I would be very happy to recommend Smile Store to colleagues and friends. I had general dentistry as well as several crowns done and was delighted with the results. Tamas at reception was extremely helpful and friendly and, due to the nature of the work I had carried out, I had dental work done by 3 Smilestore dentistry staff, Drs Kadar and Aniko and Maria – all showed great care, efficiency and professionalism. The initial treatment plan was very well worked out, reasonably priced with no hidden costs and completed in a relatively short period of time. Because of my excellent experience I have recently started my daughter at Smile Store for orthodontic treatment with Dr. Csurja and to date have been very pleased with this decision.”

“I recently finished treatment which was carried out over a 5 month period and included implants, a crown and some root canals. I was prompted to check out Smile Store after paying 900 euro to local practitioner for a root canal treatment, he asked me for 970 and agreed to take 900 after a little negotiation. The comparable root canal at Smile Store (yes it was at the back) cost me 365. I was also quoted over twice what I paid Smile Store for implants by local guy.

The treatment at Smile Store was carried out in a highly professional manner and I was really impressed by the transparency of the written quote/treatment plan which was fully adhered to. I generally have a policy of buying Irish but in the case of dental treatment I was forced to make an exception.”

“Where do I start? For the first time in my life, I felt self conscious about my smile and it really bothered me. I contacted Smile Store, the dental specialists, the consultation began and soon after the process which was smooth from beginning to end and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The crowns and bridging have transformed my teeth to straight and white. Its only now that I can finally love my smile and honestly say that the Smile Store and in particular their customer care and Dr. Aniko’s expertise has transformed my life. Since getting my teeth done, it has given me a new outlook on life. It has made me more outgoing and confident. Thanks Smile Store! Elaine M.”

“Over all excellent. Staff very friendly + efficient. Initial consultation very fast, detailed, professional. I was given time to make decision based on a couple of treatment plans and felt under no pressure to commit. I was very impressed with the service. My treatment was long and there were a couple of setbacks to do with fittings, etc. but these too were handled appropriately.”

” Wanted to let you all know how delighted I am with my first completed implants. I was like a child waiting for Santa and I was not disappointed yesterday! Dr. Bence’s wonderful work as my Implantologist came to fruition. Part one was completed yesterday July 4th 2013 by Dr. Aniko and her assistant Anita.

The result is truly amazing and my crown is perfect. They are a truly excellent duo with wonderful skills. Thank you so much. I am looking forward to end of July when I return to have my final implants completed. The Smile Store clinic has been the best choice I have made for dentistry. All staff at the clinic are exceptional, caring,professional and friendly. They go the extra mile in their care of the patients. Again many thanks and look forward to my end July visit.”
