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

"They have a lot of integrity and you would never worry about being ripped off here"
5 50Reviewed 04 Sep 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Fillings,Orthodontist Consultation
I had orthodontic and dental treatment here over the past two years. Very very happy with results. Liam O'Droma is highly skilled and I would trust him completely. He gives honest advice about your treatment options and cares about the treatment he gives you. I am very nervous of needles and when I had to have a filling. I barely felt the needle and it barely noticed I was having a filling! This has never happened before!

I'll never go to another dentist now. All the staff are lovely, especially Liam's assistant Suzanna who is just a lovely person and also seems to be very knowledgeable.

They have a lot of integrity and you would never worry about being ripped off here. In fact, they are very affordable yet deliver a very high standard of care. You will be in safe hands here. I would highly recommend them, especially if you are nervous about going to the dentist.

"The dentist himself was kind and calmed me down well"
5 50Reviewed 13 Aug 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I wanted to get veneers, but needed to have an orthodontic check-up first. I chose this clinic because they were conveniently situated. The check-up was absolutely free and I’m happy with the outcome - it was a very good informative session.

The clinic was rather small, but the staff were warm and welcoming. The dentist himself was kind and calmed me down well. He wasn’t overly serious and this helped ease my nervousness. Everything was explained thoroughly. It was a brilliant check-up, but I’ve decided not to proceed with the veneers due to my ill health. I’m currently undergoing other treatment first.

"The rates here were a lot cheaper than what other places had quoted me"
4 50Reviewed 12 Aug 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Wisdom Tooth Extraction
I went to Dr Liam to extract a wisdom tooth. The rates here were a lot cheaper than what other places had quoted me. No follow-ups were required and everything was fine afterwards. Including the examination, I paid about 70 Euros for the extraction.

The clinic was fine. Nothing too fancy. Everything was pretty standard for the money I paid. I wasn’t there for too long, but the dentist was quite nice. I’ve already recommended others.
Total Amount Paid €70

"Good value for money and not to forget his emphasis on keeping up-to-date on implantology treatment"
5 50Reviewed 22 Jul 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants,Dental Crowns
Most important point first: From experience with an implant (lower left 5). I can highly recommend Dr Liam Ó Droma. Excellence in all aspects. The consultation, advise preparation, treatment through all stages, first-class material, good value for money and not to forget his emphasis on keeping up-to-date on implantology treatments.

I am not a newcomer to implants, I had a number of those done over the past 10 years, but none in Ireland, they were simply far too expensive here at the time. Most were done in Germany in a specialised, fairly high-tech clinic in Germany. Including flights and all still a lot cheaper than what I had found here.

When a new problem appeared in 2017. I found Liam's clinic on the internet with a competitive offer and he fitted me in pretty quickly in his surgery in An Spidéal, Co. Galway. When approaching, you may be forgiven not to expect a first-class implant specialist working in what looks a bit like a "timber hut".

What I saw inside was modern high-tech equipment standing idle and an assortment of second-hand armchairs in a tiny waiting room. When you are in the dentist's chair and Liam looks deep through his oversized looking glasses, you know you are in the right hands. He does not need high-tech and he knows what he is doing!

After the crown was fitted, I have had no problem whatsoever. It pretty much feels like an original tooth, it fitted perfectly first time and did not need any adjustments. A most impressive proof of skilfulness.

What I also found most amazing was how little blood was lost. I remember previous procedures when I looked like having been in a bad fist-fight. Blood all over and stitches having to be taken out later. Not so here; after the initial root extraction, there is hardly any bleeding. Thanks to his minimally invasive method and no stitches at all.

Just a quick word on waiting times: yes, I also had to wait, and so had other patients when I was in treatment. Somewhere else, I had the experience of having an implant done in a "normal" dental practice working to strict timeslots. You did not have to wait long before treatment started, but it then got interrupted, restarted, interrupted again, and so on. I think normal dental work of check-ups, fillings and implants with potential complications do not mix well. I will rather patiently wait for an hour in the waiting room, but then have the uninterrupted attention when being treated. This is what Liam is doing.

Thanks to all around Liam, Barbara, Arlene, Susanne and all.

I found the clinic in An Spidéal, Co. Galway, through the internet search. It is in a beautiful area, but not terribly easy to get to from afar.

As I said above, when approaching, you may be forgiven not to expect a first-class implant specialist working in what looks a bit like a "timber hut" at the back of a medical care centre.

Outside the treatment room and ignoring a computer or two, the clinic has the charm of a kind of "old-worldly" mid-50s place.

"Everything went well and I’m happy with how things turned out"
4 50Reviewed 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"
4 50Reviewed 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.
