A great smile says it all. A great smile is an important part of the overall impression a person makes on the world. An appealing smile increases ones appearance, confidence and self-esteem. There are many reasons why people may want to change their smiles: discoloured, crooked cracked, chipped or worn teeth. In our clinic these can be transformed to create a vibrant, youthful smile using state-of-the-art dental technology and artistic ability.

We are situated in a newly-built, modern building in the heart of Cabinteely village. To the right of us is Cabinteely Pharmacy and to the left, the Londis shop. Our clinic is very welcoming to patients with a happy and friendly atmosphere. Our waiting area makes you feel at home with a flat-screen TV, magazines and fresh tea or coffee. Also, for longer treatments with provide our patients with DVD glasses or a choice of relaxing music. 

We strive to make all our patients comfortable and at their ease. We can provide oral sedation for nervous patients who have a fear of dental treatments. This allows them to relax and removes their sense of fear.

Our Dentists take time with each patient and ensure they understand all their treatment and an estimate of costing will be issued to each patient and explained in detail. Our staff are extremely experienced and happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the treatment.

Our hygienists provide an extremely important service to our patients and play a crucial role in our practice to help our patients maintain good oral hygiene and play a large role in preventative dentistry.
