How do I make an appointment?
You can make an appointment by either calling us on (01) 457 48 48 / (01) 457 24 44 or via our live messaging platform.
What can I expect on my first appointment?
On arrival, a member of our dental team will greet you and will check you in on our dental management system before meeting with one of our experienced nurses, who will have a one-on-one consultation with you in our private consultation room. In the initial consultation, we will run through a brief questionnaire, medical records and have a quick chat about the reasons you attended and what your current dental requirements.
Then, you will meet with one of our dentists who will undertake a full dental health assessment of your mouth. Then, we will put together a treatment plan outlining short-term and long-term care plans. After discussing the range of options and prices, you will be escorted to the reception where any payment will be discussed, and further appointments made.
What happens if I arrive late?
If you arrive more than fifteen minutes late, the receptionist will check with the dentist to see if they can fit you in. Sometimes we may give you the option of waiting to see in case the next patient does not arrive, and a slot becomes available.
What is the cancellation policy?
Anyone who cancels 24 hours before an appointment will not incur a charge. If a patient misses an appointment or fails to cancel with a 24-hour notice, we will charge a fee of €35. This is not something we like to do, but we have a responsibility to our staff’s employment and to those patients who are serious about their dental health.
Those few who fail to attend or cancel regularly can have a knock-on effect on others looking for urgent appointments. Clearly, we are sensitive to any unexpected problems and when there are genuine reasons as to why you could not attend, we can use our discretion to waive the fee.
What if I'm in pain?
Dental pain can be gruesome and sometimes regular painkillers offer no relief. Because of this, we do our best to try and see every person who contacts us with a dental emergency on the same day. If you are in pain or have a swelling, or any other dental related problems and you need immediate help, please do not hesitate to contact us on (01) 457 48 48 or on (01) 457 24 44.
We have emergency slots built into our timetable on a daily basis and will strive to see you on the day if possible.
Will my treatment hurt?
We use local anaesthetics prior to the treatment and we make sure that they are administered slowly. This reduces the overall discomfort. We are also happy to apply a numbing gel onto the area that freezes the gum prior to the injection.
A tooth was lost. What do I do?
- Do not touch the roots of the tooth
- If it is possible, replace the tooth into the socket and bite down on some gauze
- If you cannot replace the tooth put it in a container covered with milk or your saliva and attend your dentist immediately. Time is a key factor when it comes to lost teeth.
Please note that this advice is only for adult teeth. Baby teeth cannot be re-implanted.

We recommend yearly check-ups for all and six months cleanings.
