Being in dentistry for three generations

About us.

Being in dentistry for three generations, we may go a long way back, but using advanced technology and treatments, you’ll find we’re very forward thinking too. 

You. First.

Creating your perfect smile is important, but we believe your overall wellbeing is equal to your teeth and oral hygiene. That’s why we’re people first. Understanding what you want from your dental treatment to give the outstanding results you deserve.

Sedation for a
calmer visit.

It’s understandable that everybody can get a little nervous, but if you find it all a bit daunting we’re one of the few practices in Ireland that offer intravenous and gaseous conscious sedation. With our founders being pioneers in the field.

What to
expect on
your first visit.

This is a time to get acquainted and get to know each other in our comfortable surroundings. We’ll find out about your general health and wellbeing, as well as your dental requirements. So that we have the all important ‘whole picture’ – to know what is right for your individual needs. 

We encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything you want us to know. 

We’ll also be reviewing your medical history including medications that may affect treatment. Then a full-mouth series of x-rays and a comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw will be performed.

We’ll then be set up to get the best out of each other.
