Affordable quality dentistry: we can make you smile (again)!
Are you looking for a Dentist in Cornwall? We are a friendly and modern dental practice providing general dentistry (amalgam free) as well as advanced dentistry. We are a “digital practice” (CT-Scanner, digital X-rays, digital Scanner, digital printer) but we also have a small dental laboratory on site to offer same day denture repairs and other services.
Our principal dentist Dr Nelz has 25 years of experience and is experienced in restoring difficult and complex cases. He placed his first dental implant in 1997!
We use high-quality materials and instruments. General dentistry: amalgam-free fillings or inlays. Root canal treatments under Rubber-Dam and microscope. 3-D imaging (CBCT) and CAD-CAM dentistry. We also offer Dental Implants and Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics). Our aesthetic branch Atlantic Beauty offers facial rejuvenation (Botox, Dermal Fillers).
We can offer treatments for nearly every budget and every case: from fillings to full mouth implants to telescopic dentures. In some cases with limited options (i.e. due to Gum Disease), we can offer fibre-reinforced composite restorations.
I recently lost several molar teeth which made eating awkward.
I needed a solution and envisaged Implants to be the best course of action.
Accordingly, I evaluated and visited several potential dental practices and advertised “implant centres”.
Most failed to impress me either regarding their facilities or attitude—-
THEN I visited Atlantic and had a consultation with Dr. Peer Nelz.
Very professional service. You are made to feel at ease very quickly by the whole team and the dental procedures are done very gentle – especially the local anaesthetic injections by Dr Nelz are nearly completely painless! I am very happy with my Implant Bridge and will have my lower jaw treated very soon! Thank you!
After having been failed by previous dentists (Gum Disease) I have had treatment by Dr Nelz. He placed implants and I received a “sophisticated” removable bridge on telescopic crowns. The teeth look very nice and feel like my own. I had several bad experiences in the past but Dr Nelz solved all problems with great patience and care. I attend the practice every few months for cleaning and checking of the implants. I don’t realize that I have artificial teeth as they feel like my own teeth.
Dr Peer Nelz was born in Berlin and after military service and an apprenticeship as a carpenter, he decided to become a Dentist. He graduated as a Dentist from the Humboldt-University of Berlin in 1994. During his study of dentistry, he started a PhD (Doctorate) in the University of Pharmacology and Toxicology. In 1997 he gained his Dr. med. dent. in a public dissertation with “Summa cum laude”.
During his 2 years as Assistant in various dental clinics, he underwent training in special areas of dentistry such as orthodontics (teeth straightening) and implantology (placing and restoring dental implants).
In various dental clinics, he treated numerous patients with severely neglected teeth many of whom required complete restoration of their mouth, often under general anaesthesia. In 1997 he became a partner in a group practice in Berlin where he treated (and rehabilitated) many dental phobia patients who came with completely neglected mouths.
Peer placed his first dental implant in July 1997 and has placed thousands of implants since. In 2004 he moved to Cornwall and worked for the NHS in Liskeard until 2007 when he set up Atlantic Dental in Newquay. As he was unable to secure an NHS contract he set up a purely private practice. Within a few weeks, the practice was very busy mainly because of reasonable fees and excellent equipment, materials and service.
Due to focus on high-quality service, the practice is still very busy and probably the most affordable implant clinic in Cornwall.
