Dentist and dental nurse were excellent

1.5 50 Dentist Consultation

Dentist and dental nurse were excellent , very professional and reassuring !
Reception staff left a lot to be desired , very rude and unfriendly both on the phone and in person !! It’s a shame as the clinic is lovely and clean , just the reception staff could do with learning how to be a bit more professional . I left the clinic very irritated and upset by the encounter with the receptionist

I was overwhelmed with how professional and friendly everyone was

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I was so impressed from start to finish with shields dental practice. I started going to them in their Castletroy practice last year and from the girls on reception to the dental nurses/hygienist/ dentists including Zena and the lovely dentist who whitened my teeth (with glasses) I was overwhelmed with how professional and friendly everyone was. This year I was referred to Cormac he was absolutely superb. I needed a specific treatment for my teeth grinding as well as a crown. Not only was he extremely professional but also super caring and brought me back for 2 further check-ups to ensure all was well. Both practices in Castletroy and south circular rd are so modern with a lovely homely feel to it coffee making machine facility’s a clinic coordinator to advise of delays and fantastic adds on their tv that explains dental issues in a very clear easily understood way. Well done shields and all your staff ... SUPERB

I now have a lovely straight smile

5 50 Dental Crowns

I had crowns on my front teeth for 15 years. They were misaligned and I did not like my smile. After having dental work to stabilize my oral care, I had my crowns replaced and I now have a lovely straight smile.

The clinic has very friendly and professional staff. It is also a child-friendly environment. There is a play room and my children love going there for check ups. My husband and I, along with our 4 children now attend the clinic.

I would go there regularly

5 50 Fillings

Replace old fillings

A great experience I would go to the dentist regularly over the years. The shields dental clinic is the best by far. They are now our family dentist and would highly recommend them. In all the years going to the dentist it's probably the first time getting a proper check up.

He persevered and now due to my treatment my migraines are much improved

5 50 Root Canals, Dental Crowns

Splint, root canal, crowns all because I grind my teeth and also suffer from debilitating migraine, that along with a huge fear of dentists - due to this fear it took time for me to become comfortable with Conor. He persevered and now due to my treatment my migraines are much improved. The splint protects my teeth and finally I have teeth that I am comfortable with. I must mention Alex - Conor's nurse is very professional and friendly.

A work colleague's recommendation was the best advise I ever took. Pristine and relaxing waiting room. Very friendly and approachable team at the front desk.

I love my new teeth

4.5 50 Veneers

I got four veneers for my four top front teeth as my teeth were misaligned

I was recommended by my dentist to go to shields dental clinic as it has the reputation of being one of the best in Munster. I was not disappointed and the results are amazing. I love my new teeth.

Explained in detail a treatment plan for this tooth & any future problems

4.5 50 Dentist Consultation

I had an unexpected appointment today as my tooth broke. Even though my consultation was squeezed in Dr. Conor explained in detail a treatment plan for this tooth & any future problems I may encounter. All the Staff are so helpful & the waiting room is so comfortable you don't mind if you are delayed. I am going back to have a crown fitted at a very competitive price. Thanks Conor.

Exceptionally good experience - definitely 5 star!

5 50 Dentist Consultation, Hygienist Session • Paid: €70

Greeted by friendly receptionists. The waiting area was immaculate and SO comfortable and I was even given a proper coffee. I saw the hygienist this time and she was incredibly helpful, the whole time was totally pain free. She also explained the process step by step. Highly recommended as I have struggled for years to find a good dentist/hygienist in Limerick, so glad I found this one.
