About Us

Our clinic is a well-established, personalised dental clinic based in Dublin city centre with experienced professionals who will look after you.

We have built the practice in Grand Canal over the last 16 years on a patient to patient referral basis which is a testament to the high quality dentistry we provide our clients, how we continually care for them and the excellent results we deliver.

Our team of dentists and hygienists provide a full suite of preventative dental care and oral hygiene treatments to keep you ‘dental healthy’ and more advanced cosmetic dental solutions to enhance your smile and appearance.

We continually strive to ensure you are provided with a choice of the latest treatments and developments in dental care, and use the latest technologies and methods in a safe, comfortable caring environment.

We are particularly mindful that many people can be nervous of going to the dentist and we are very proud that we have a particular reputation for putting people at ease and delivering exceptional quality pain free dental care.
