Last Friday I was unfortunate to break a dental plate.
Friday afternoon was spent searching around Paralimni for a dentist:-
Dentist 1 - quote - the plate cannot be fixed and a new one is the only alternative - 20 mins wait.
Dentist 2 - quote - again not possible to fix and a new one which is very expensive is the only solution - 10 mins wait.
Dentist 3 - quote - you need a new plate, cost 700 euros, yes I can do it no problem (I thought I bet you can) - 30 mins wait.
Monday I went to the dentist attached to the Lito Clinic, seen within 5 minutes. Of course the plate can be fixed, give me a ring Wednesday and you can collect it - job done cost 70 euros.
Highly recommended, very friendly and extremely professional.

I have a small plate which has broken a couple of times. Took it to a dental technician in Larnaca who fixed it, took it in picked it up 4 hours later.

Last time he inserted a small metal plate to stop it happening again - 10 pounds.

I went to the dentist near the Lito clinic yesterday as my crown had fell out (the post had snapped on it as well)
I didn't realise that it was by appointment (3 week wait) and that the dentist had just finished for the day so was going to leave and come back another day but to my surprise he told me to go straight through and sorted my tooth out there and then for me.
I will deffinatley be using them again and would recommende them to everyone.
It only cost me 70 euro for him to completley sort my tooth out and it was quite a difficult job for him as the inside of my crown is old and quite worn.
Also found out that childrens check ups are free.... unless they need any work doing
Fantastic!!!
Very Happy

In Paralimni, at the junction by all the banks.......take the Sotiros road (i think it is)
Lito clinic is on the right hand side and the dentist is just opposite the clinic by the pharmisist.
