Appointments

Visiting Our Clinic

Scheduling

Call us as soon as you can, and we’ll organise an initial consultation for you.

Depending on your particular dental issue, you may need more than one consultation; for example the general dentist and the Orthodontist, or the Implant Specialist.

Our team will advise you and determine the type of specialist you need to see, so you can meet with the relevant practitioner as soon as possible.

We’ll schedule appointments to best suit you so you can begin your treatment in a timely manner.

We are open from 9am to 6pm from Monday to Friday with the exception of Wednesdays, when we open from 11am to 8pm to accommodate people who need an evening appointment. We also offer Saturday surgeries.

However, if you have an emergency we will try to see you as soon as possible in order to assess the problem; decide the best course of action and to help you manage the pain.

First Visit

Depending on what the issue is, you will be given a comprehensive assessment by the appropriate specialist on your first visit.

We will first take a dental X-ray called an ‘OPG’ (Orthopantogram), to give us a complete view of the all the teeth. This is a key tool in correctly diagnosing the problem and determining your treatment. Link to fees

Plan to spend up to 90 minutes with us on your first consultation as it takes some time to compile your comprehensive treatment plan, often involving internal consultations between specialists to provide you with the best service.

Following your initial consultation, we’ll then schedule a treatment appointment for you based on your needs and on the urgency of your treatment.

We can go through the costs and priorities with you, and together we will work out a timeline that suits you and your budget.

Dental Implants

Dental implant patients will be offered a CT scan with our iCat Cone Beam CT Scanner.

We are one of very few dental surgeries in Ireland to own our own scanner on-site. This means you don’t need to be sent away for a scan; we can do it all in-house.

The CT scan provides the Oral Surgeon Specialist a full view of all the structures of the jaw and mouth, allowing precision placement of implants as well as determining the amount of bone available in your jaw to hold those implants. Link to fees

Orthodontics

Orthodontics involves the correction of misaligned teeth with braces or retainers, for adults and children.

Your Orthodontic consultation will include discussion of your concerns and appropriate options to straighten your smile. We will take photographs and impressions of your teeth, so we can develop a full treatment plan detailing how your teeth will be moved to their ideal position and the timeline involved. Your tailored treatment plan will be sent to you within a week so you can review itemised costs, number of appointments and payment plan.

For Invisalign candidates, the orthodontist will take impressions and photos of your teeth.  The Orthodontist will give you a general idea of what to expect; then all your data is sent to the Invisalign Company to create your customised treatment plan. Within 2-3 weeks Invisalign email your plan, along with an animated video of how your teeth will move into place. Once you have reviewed it and are satisfied, treatment begins.

An OPG (orthopantomogram – a panoramic x ray showing location, position and growth of all teeth on a single film) and Lat Ceph (Lateral Cephalometric Radiograph, showing a sideways view of the face) will have to be taken. For fees, see here.
