About Dr. Liam Ó Droma, B.D.S., N.U.I. - Dublin

We at Radharc on Oileain Dental Cosmetic Centre located in the picturesque seaside village of Howth in Co.Dublin close to DART station (it's only a 5 minute walk!) and bus stop (there's one right outside the door) would like to extend you a very warm cead míle failte

IMPLANTS   We generally use a high quality German system of implants called Champion ( ) which involves the MIMI Implant procedure. This means that it is a very gentle experience for the patient involving little or no surgery.And also, depending on suitability, we use high quality Ankylos or Bicon implants.  Dr. Liam has undertaken numerous courses over the years which include achieving a Post Graduate Certificate in Implant Dentistry from Warwick University. He is also a full member of the Association of Dental Implantlogy (A.D.I.). In order to make this very valuable treatment more cost accessible, the total cost of providing the implant including the crowns is €1,700 for the vast majority of cases.

Overdentures with implants is a highly effective  and cost effective way of restoring big edentulous gaps particularly recommended to retain, and really stabilize that loose lower denture and crucially furthermore halt the bone resorption. This latter factor means that it is medically recommended for overall health, and hence fundable in part by the V.H.I. Our fee for an implant retained lower denture with two implants starts from €970.

ORTHODONTICS   Generally, modern options revolve around the speedy and highly effective Damon system. This is a fixed system which can also use clear brackets and moves not only the teeth orthodontcally, but also aesthetically improves the facial structure i.e. Orthopedics.  We also offer as a treatment option, where suitable the clear Invisalign System, and other options such as the Inman Aligner for very rapid alignment of anterior teeth (3 – 6 months).

VENEERS/CROWNS    Full crowing of teeth has long been a treatment option however, veneering the facial surface of teeth by bonding on fine porcelain veneers to improve the aesthetics is a modern development. This is a  facet of dental cosmetics in which Dr. Ó Droma has extensive experience- since they first became available in 1985 he's provided thousands of veneers  for satisfied patients. Our very best quality called Chameleon Fortress veneers are the most aesthetic and cost €700 each, but we also do excellent Da Vinci type ones for €570 each. They all come with a solid 5 year guarantee against chipping and cracking. We can of course negotiate on that figure for multiple teeth.

TOOTH WHITENING  In addition to the usual take home whitening we do in-house–Rod Kurthy Whitening Deep Bleaching – ( )  and instant whitening using the latest and safest (i.e. no damaging U.V.) power whitening laser machine from Germany called Beyond Plus

FACIAL TREATMENTS  We do various facial skin care treatment using various types of dermal fillers and muscle relaxant solution that eliminates that ‘furrowed brow’!

OTHER TREATMENTS  Other treatments include endodontics/root canal treatment for front and back teeth, white fillings, bridgework, dentures of various types, children’s dentistry including orthodontics, sleep aponea treatment, oral surgery incl. wisdom tooth extractions and of course all routine treatments incl. hygienist's treatment. 

APPOINTMENTS   The next step is up to you - if you'd like to arrange an initial FREE consultation appointment just contact us and we will be happy to arrange a convenient appointment for you. To accommodate our patients we work one late evening on Monday and most Saturday mornings

"Everything went well and I’m happy with how things turned out"
80%Reviewed 24 Apr 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I wanted to have implants put in, but I needed a doctor’s opinion first, so I chose Dr. Liam. It was good value for money, and I paid the price I was given at the consultation. The surgery went well. I returned six or eight weeks later for a follow-up.

The clinic was small but very clean. After we did the implant, they gave me a temporary crown; when I returned for a follow-up later, they fitted me with a permanent one. Everything went well and I’m happy with how things turned out. Even though the dentist was late for the first appointment, he said he could do the implant then and there if my schedule allowed. I didn’t need to make another appointment to get everything done. I enjoyed such efficient service!

"He is undoubtedly very knowledgeable"

Treatment Received: Braces
Braces for crooked teeth and over bite.

Liam is undoubtedly very knowledgeable but unfortunately always late for appointments. Average waiting time is 1 hour after the arranged appointment time. For that reason, I will leave a low star review.

Dr Liam Ó Droma responded to this review:

Dear Conor, many thanks for taking the time for putting up a review for our dental practice. We do try hard to keep a close eye on the appointment times but as Liam does a lot of specialist work it is sometimes difficult to predict the correct amount of time - also we can't predict complications, emergencies, and the amount of time a patient requires to discuss their treatment. But we do appreciate your comment, and will strive to quicken the waiting time. Kind regards, Arlene

"A very pleasant, friendly dentist"
80%Reviewed 11 Mar 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
A very pleasant, friendly dentist. I was just there for a checkup and my main reason was to get an appointment with the hygienist Claire. She was excellent. Dental checkup took all of 5 minutes with no X-ray.

The waiting area is very small and the premises are in a poor state of repair. The standard of hygiene in the dental area was ok. The receptionist doubled up as the dental nurse.

"The price was fair and the doctors were professional"
50%Reviewed 24 Jul 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning
I went to Dr. Liam's Clinic to have a teeth whitening appointment and while I was happy with the procedure and how it was carried out, I was not very impressed with the hygiene standards of the clinic.

The clinic was decent despite the problems with the hygiene, they gave a reasonable price that I thought was fair and the doctors were professional and did what I needed them to do.

"Professional treatment care received"
50%Reviewed 30 Mar 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Orthodontist Consultation
I was looking for some advice regarding my issue at an orthodontist due to how complex my problem was. I then booked a consultation at this clinic which ended up being a teeth cleaning session as the Doctor advised it was the better option. He (Doctor) was good at what he was doing, very professional, friendly and nice.

I was charged at a regular price which wasn't too alarming. I was quite surprised about the "70's vintage look" his building had, inside and out. I feel they could modernize the place but other than that they did a good job.

"Excellent results"
100%Reviewed 06 Jan 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
My son has been having orthodontic treatment with Dr Ó Droma for the last year with excellent results. He (as well as his assistant) is very kind and my son has always been happy to go for checkups, turning / wearing his appliance / retainer. We are nearing the end of the process, and I'm so glad we didn't wait until he was older as we originally considered.

When I needed a crown done at short notice, I was seen quickly. Surprisingly (I am a very nervous patient), I found the visit not traumatic in the least, and I will have all future work done here.

As far as value - for the quality of work and products used, I believe this is very good value.
I initially chose the practice because the prices seemed lower than others in the area. For my son, the free consultation was good as it gave a better idea of what was needed and what it would cost. It didn't feel as if additional treatments would be suggested just for more profit.

The practice doesn't look as swanky as many others in the area, but when it comes down to what is needed (plus new and modern equipment), this doesn't stand back in the least.
