    I had a experience from start to finish in Shackleton Clinic. From Louise at the front desk, to Cathy and her staff, I was thrilled with the result. Thank you so much Cathy and all the staff at Shackleton Clinic.
  • Kristy Maclean Hayes
    Called on the 23rd of December for my 5 year old son following a dental accident. The receptionist could not have been nicer to ensure he was seen. The dental team were incredibly freindly and my son felt at ease. He's actually excited to go back 👍.

    Brought my two young, nervous kids to the dentist. We had a very friendly greeting from Louise and then saw Cathy and Daisy at the clinic. It was such a positive experience that put the kids completely at ease. I couldn’t have asked for better. The kids left delighted with themselves. I can’t recommend this clinic enough!

    I had the most wonderful experience from start to finish in Shackleton Clinic. From Louise at the front desk, to Dr Cathy and her trainees, I was made feel comfortable and well looked after. Dr Cathy listened to what I wanted to do about my dental work, and gave me options to choose from. She knew exactly what I was trying to achieve and I was thrilled with the end result. Thank you so much Dr Cathy and all the team at Shackleton Clinic.

Dr.Olimpia is the queen of Composite bonding & teeth whitening!!

Composite bonding is great because we don’t remove any of the tooth structure, we add directly onto the tooth!
A little imperfection can be improved. Large gaps between teeth and badly broken down teeth can be built up again. This is a very conservative treatment😁 #shackletoncliniccelbridge #compositebonding
#aesthetic #queenofcomposites #whitening

What a transformation!
This is the perfect example of the combination of Invisalign and composite bonding.

Book in with Dr Olimpia to start your Invisalign and Composite Bonding journey

Invisalign, Bleach and Bond

Apologies for the poor photography skills…these improved as these beautiful teeth improved!

This treatment required invisalign aligners followed by teeth whitening for a few weeks and finally composite bonding on the two front teeth for the finishing touch
