Easy and relaxed personal service
We take a personal interest in every customer and lowering your fear and anxieties is our priority. We use safe, pain free procedures so that you feel comfortable at all stages of your treatment. Our clinic has been designed for your comfort and safety, from the massage chair to the plasma screens on the ceiling to the air-conditioned light-filled rooms.
Latest equipment and technology
Our dental procedures are performed with the aid of a microscope which gives a greater level of accuracy and ensures longer durability of treatment in time. We operate the most modern sterilisation facility in Ireland and use digital X-rays to illustrate every stage of your dental treatment.
