She has a very calming presence and is extremely knowledgeable and professional

5 50 Hygienist Session

I am very happy with the treatment I received from the hygienist Blaithin today. I am a nervous patient and Blaithin put me at ease and talked her way through the procedure and ensuring that I had enough pain relief. She has a very calming presence and is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Thanks also to Mary, the nurse who was very kind and also put me at ease.

Very happy to report a satisfying dental appointment

5 50 Hygienist Session

I received excellent dental and gum care recently (2nd March 2023) when I attended the Gate Clinic, Galway, for Oral Hygiene (Prophylaxis) assessment and treatment. Very efficient Customer Care was provided by Claire, at Reception, who processed my appointment, informed me of any pre-visit necessities, welcomed me at Reception and confirmed my dental booking.

This ensured a relaxed atmosphere existed prior to my procedure which was very welcome. The Dental Hygienist, Blaithin, and Dental Nurse, Patricia, were both very helpful and informative regarding the Oral Hygiene assessment and why it is vital to keep the teeth and gums clean and well maintained.

The Oral Hygiene procedure was carried out in a very careful, pain-free, thorough and efficient manner where each stage was discussed and a mirror held to show me the gums being worked on. Essential details of how I could more effectively carry out the required daily oral hugiene completed the visit.

Very happy to report a satisfying dental appointment where Customer Satisfaction was considered at all times. Excellent time and attention was given by all those I dealt with at the Gate Clinic, from Claire at Reception to the Oral Hygienist, Blaithin, and Dental Nurse, Patricia. Looking forward to future effective and efficient Oral Hygiene treatments at Gate Dental, Galway.

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I moved to Galway last year and had to find a dentist for an emergency procedure. I saw the great reviews for Gate Clinic and decided to ask for an emergency appointment. They told me to come in and immediately solved my problem. Very professional staff, they make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk through the door. Couldn't recommend them enough!

Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation • Paid: €530

I can't thank Dr Hegazy enough. I had a lump at the back of my head. He was able to diagnose it as a cyst immediately and remove it the same day. It was all very efficient and the staff were great at putting me at ease before the procedure.

Extractions, Fillings, Dental Bridges

I've had fillings, a bridge installed and an extraction.

I was greeted at reception warmly and put at ease immediately. Dr. Moore is very relaxed, informative and professional. I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Gate Dental Clinic. In all three visits, I felt absolutely no pain. My last visit was for an extraction and I didn't even feel nervous beforehand. If you need the best dental work, look no further.

Cosmetic Dentist Consultation



Dental Bonding

Bonding can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged, and is an alternative to veneers. The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance. The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts five to ten years before repair is needed.
€1100 - €1300

Dental Bridges

A bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.

Dentures are a solution of last resort. Many people assume that they will require dentures as they age, but losing teeth is not a normal part of the aging process. If you care for your teeth well and guard against periodontal disease you should be able to keep your teeth for a lifetime. Saving even a few natural teeth is better than losing them all. Natural teeth or even portions of natural teeth (roots) can help you retain bone in your jaw and can act as stable supports for bridges, overdentures or removable partial dentures. Your dentist will try to save as many as possible of your natural teeth. If thats not possible, you may have to consider a complete denture or an implant-supported denture. The good news is that dentures arent what they used to be. With newer materials and improved technology, dentists can fashion dentures that fit comfortably, appear natural and help you stay healthier. Denture problems, such as clicking, slipping, gum irritation, staining and odor are signs your dentures arent fitting properly and may need to be adjusted, relined or remade. Although dentures may look like your natural teeth, they cannot work like them. Like artificial limbs, dentures cannot truly replace their natural counterparts. You will have to learn how to use your dentures, which can take several months. Simple actions like speaking and eating may feel different, and you may have to learn to make adjustment

Fixed Partial Dentures


Flexible Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures are composed of a metal framework with plastic teeth and gum areas. The framework includes metal clasps or other attachments, which hold the dentures in place. However, partial dentures are removed easily for cleaning. Fixed partial dentures, which most people call bridges, are cemented in place and better simulate natural teeth.

We offer two dentures from the best technicians we can find. Using either heat cured or injection moulding for high precision and stronger dentures

Removable Partial Dentures


Emergency Dentist Consultation


Endodontist Consultation

When the living tissue is irritated by decay and bacteria, or by the proximity of a deep filling, or indeed by trauma or chronic overload, it may become inflamed. Like any living tissue when irritated the inflammation is to try and protect the living tissue and is the bodys natural defence mechanism to try and combat the irritation.


We may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Inlay or Onlay

Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth; an onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth. Traditionally, gold has been the material of choice for inlays and onlays. In recent years, however, porcelain has become increasingly popular due to its strength and color, which can potentially match the natural color of your teeth and in many cases has greater longevity.
