Nervous Patients

If being a nervous patient makes you put off dental visits, the compassionate approach of our team at Shields Dental & Implant Clinic Limerick can remove this burden of worry forever.

Fear of dentistry is common… but also a concern. Missing your regular checkups can leave you vulnerable to significant long-term dental problems.

Shields Dental & Implant Clinic Limerick has an effective, compassionate ethos, as well as expertise in sedation and other techniques geared to put nervous patients entirely at their ease.

Firstly the Shields team, headed by brothers Cormac and Conor Shields, has a proud tradition of personalised care, which comes as part and parcel of being a third-generation family practice.

The practice combines state-of-the-art dentistry and a luxurious, non-clinical setting, where privacy, trust and the patient’s comfort are absolutely paramount at every stage, whether consultation or treatment.

The Shields brothers continue a long family tradition of dentistry. Their grandfather was the first qualified dental surgeon in Tyrone in 1917, and their father Frank was a pioneer in oral surgery and sedation in Dungannon.

Sedation does wonders for nervous patients. Shields Dental & Implant Clinic Limerick is one of very few practices in Ireland that offers intravenous and gaseous conscious sedation.

Conor Shields holds a Diploma in Conscious Sedation from Guy’s Hospital, and has extensive experience in providing gaseous and intravenous sedation for anxious and phobic patients.

Sedation is a safe and effective technique, offering anxiolytic, hypnotic, muscle relaxant and amnesic properties, making the patient very sleepy with nil or little memory recall.

The comprehensive range of private treatments at Shields Dental & Implant Centre is designed to meet the needs of children and adults in a relaxed way, with plenty of time for questions and trust-building.

We think trust matters, because it enables you to have a full and frank discussion with us about your budget and your expectations.
