"I now have a lovely straight smile"
5 50Reviewed 08 Aug 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: 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"

Treatment Received: 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 50Reviewed 04 May 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: 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.

Treatment Received: 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.

Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation,Hygienist Session
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.
