Number 7, Portland Square in Carlisle has been home to a dental practice since 1940 and the current tenants/owners, Aurelian and Irina Ciabanu have the early records, photographs and even a vintage dentist’s chair to prove it!

Dental treatments, oral care and cosmetic possibilities may have changed beyond recognition since then but the same values of family services and expert care are still very much part of the approach at Portland Square Dental Practice.


“We both wanted to have our own practice here in Cumbria and Portland Square has proved an ideal location. The team here is second to none and we all share a common focus on our patients and their care.”

Aurelian Ciobanu


Aurelian and Irina Ciobanu are the lead practitioners at Portland Square Dental Practice and they bought the dental practice after working in nearby Dalston for ten years.

Before that, Aurelian had worked with the coalition forces in Iraq, providing emergency dental treatment to troops.
