Dr Ian Wellings


Dr Ian Wellings has 30 years  of clinical experience in dental implantology.  His aim is to restore total health, function and aesthetics to patients with extreme dental needs.  Having trained and worked with one of the most highly respected pioneers in the field, Dr Wellings is now a clinical tutor at the Tatum Institute in Birmingham, England.    

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr Paul Moore, the practice principal. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 15 minutes.  The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants.  The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.

Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation.  This includes a comprehensive oral examination and results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.  The fee for the clinical assessment, appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is 200 including X-rays/CT scans.  The cost of the treatment planning consultation is refunded when you proceed with the treatment.

"I am so glad I made the decision to have my implant. With sedation it was painless simple, and the two hour appointment felt like 20 minutes. I was so relaxed and was able to chat though it all. 

The whole team was courteous pleasant and efficient and I would recommend Gate Clinic to friends.
