I had a fantastic experience with this dental clinic

5 50 Fillings, Teeth Whitening

I had a fantastic experience with this dental clinic. It took me 7 years to build up the courage to even go for a check up but ended up getting two big fillings done because Conor and Lorna were so understanding of my anxiety. They talked me through everything and even held my hand at the start which really helped.

I felt so comfortable I even asked to get the teeth whitening option. The girls at reception were also so caring and put my mind at ease. I never thought I'd be able to fix my teeth but I can now go so far as to say I no longer have anxiety about dentists. I will be going again to get my wisdom teeth out soon, something I never imagined would be possible.

All the work was done at one visit

5 50 Fillings, Extractions • Paid: €250

My son Matthew was extremely nervous of dentists. He needed an extraction and a filling done. He couldn’t even tolerate a routine clean and polish job being done . Previous attempts to have work done by other dentists failed. We booked a consultation with Conor, he listened to Matthew and reassured him it's okay to be nervous and that he could help him. He recommended IV sedation for Matthew, which I can only say worked so well on the day. All the work was done at one visit, Connor and Lorna were brilliant with Matthew, I can only highly recommend Conor and the team for nervous patients, 10 out of 10. Book an appointment today you won’t be disappointed.

This was the best decision ever

5 50 Dentist Consultation, Fillings, Veneers • Paid: €3250

Totally new experience with Dr Conor Irwin it.

Was fantastic from start to finish he is a total gent! He wasn’t there for the money but 100% there for The honest result ..before venturing to Ratoath dental I had previously (prior dentist) been told I needed 12 fillings and a root canal when in fact I only needed 3 fillings, as you can imagine I second-guessed when not in pain so that’s why I ended up going for a second opinion with Conor!

I really enjoyed my experience! ... yes enjoyed it ... between Yvonne on reception & Lorna the hygienist they were exceptional and so welcoming/ helpful! I had become very paranoid about my teeth as they had started to get gaps between them which I never had before so I ended up getting 4 porcelain veneers as over time my teeth started to decay from Acid reflux.

This was the best decision ever! I’m so happy with them Although I had a rocky start with my temps as they just wouldn't go with the flow ... they kept falling out! But I never lost faith and either did Conor he was the most obliging when I needed an emergency app while waiting on my forever veneers and like that it was a quick visit with the utmost professionalism and just general charismatic feel the place gives. I’m
So happy with my teeth that’s to all the staff who made it happen for me!

Thank you ❤️

You always got a warm welcome on arrival at reception, guided through everything so carefully

Dental Implants

I couldn’t recommend the Ratoath Dental and Implant Centre enough. From the moment you call you are so well looked after. I am an extremely nervous patient and Dr Conor Irwin really understands this, he just gets it. I lost half a tooth and Dr. Irwin carefully went through all my options with me. I opted to get an implant. Dr. Conor Irwin sedated me and I got all the work carried out by Dr. Flavio Molina. He too was agent, so professional and a pleasure to deal with. Such a great dentist. Sylvia the dental nurse looked after me so well. She checked in on me so much after my initial procedure and gave me such valuable advice the whole way through my treatment plan. I am extremely happy with my tooth implant.

Every single person I encountered in my whole treatment experience is a credit to Ratoath Dental and Implant Centre. Even during the restrictions Ratoath Dental and Implant Centre were so well organised, everything was extremely well set up. You always got a warm welcome on arrival at reception, guided through everything so carefully. When you’re investing money in dental treatments it makes all the difference when you’re so well looked after.

Would highly recommend Ratoath Dental and Implant Centre especially to nervous patients in particular. Thank You to All involved in my treatment, I really appreciate it. I am so happy with my tooth implant.

Throughout the procedure, she was very reassuring and I didn’t feel a thing

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I recently attended Ratoath dental clinic, I had neglected my teeth for years and had developed a toothache. Like most people, I absolutely dreaded going to the dentist and felt very anxious. I was thankfully seen by Regina she put me at ease straight away!

She was extremely kind, understanding and talked me through my dental problem. Explaining all options available. Throughout the procedure, she was very reassuring and I didn’t feel a thing. Thanks to Regina my anxiety about going to the dentist lessened, I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Everyone worked well as a team and the overall cleanliness was great

5 50 Dental X-Ray, Teeth Cleaning

On their website, this clinic mentioned they take special care of patients who have anxieties about the dentist. For this reason, I chose them. I had a cleaning and they also reconstructed two of my teeth.

They provided me with a printout of the costs at the consultation after they’d taken some x-rays. What they quoted me was exactly what I paid: 1100 Euros. They finished the work after two appointments and my next visit will be a 6-month check-up.

I loved that Ratoath didn’t have the normal, oppressive smell of a dental clinic. The staff were polite and so courteous; everyone worked well as a team and the overall cleanliness was great. Their location was convenient for me too.

They provided excellent care, attention and even gave me some earphones to listen to music. While the dentist was working, he was also chatting with the nurse and this distracted me from what was going on (it was much better than working in unnerving silence). All of these things helped to me put me at ease.

I wouldn't even consider going anywhere else

Sedation for dental treatments

I can not express how good this clinic is. I am a very nervous patient but was made to feel totally at ease on each visit. All my questions, no matter how daft, were answered. I opted to have sedation and would recommend this for anyone as nervous as me. Conor and his team are the best and I wouldn't even consider going anywhere else.

I just can't thank them enough

Fillings, Extractions

Fillings & Extractions

I cannot recommend this clinic enough. I was a nervous patient, and my teeth were in a very bad state when I arrived. I have no idea why I did not do this sooner!. Dr Conor Irwin and his assistant Hannah were just so relaxing and professional and made me feel that I would be able to eat foods and smile again. I was sedated twice and have 10 fillings and two extractions, pain free...and anxiety free....It was amazing!!.
I just can't thank them enough.....or encourage you to phone them and make that appointment.

"I'm definately coming back here"

Fillings, Root Canals, Teeth Cleaning

fillings, root canal, cleaning

Due to an unpleasant experience as a child even in my 30s I have a deep rooted (excuse the pun!) fear of visiting the dentist. So when I began to get a constant throbbing pain in my teeth as much as I tried to put off visiting the dentist eventually the unbearable pain meant I had no choice.
I went to my local dentist and they told me I needed a root canal treatment. I just told them that I wanted to be out of pain so they gave me a course of antibiotics and I never went back. When the pain came back again, my girlfriend began looking up dentists who specialise in treating nervous patients. She found the Ratoath Dental Centre website and made an appointment for me straight away. The evening of the appointment I did feel a bit embarrassed, a grown man sweating at the thoughts of being in the dentist but as I went into the surgery and was introduce to Dr Conor Irwin he stood up and shook my hand and talked me through why I was here. What really struck me about him was that he actaully LISTENED to me and UNDERSTOOD how nervous I was. All we did on the first appointment was talk and come up with a way to treat all the problems I had as a result of my fear. He went through what sedation was, the cost and everything involved in my treatment. I left that dental practice and for the first time i felt myself thinking, "I'm definately coming back here"
Now because I was so bad with dentists I did need two appointments but it was well worth the €160 I paid each time. That stuff was amazing!!!! All I remember is going into the surgery then being told it was over and my girlfriend bringing me home. I was at work the next day not a bother on me.
I now trust Dr Conor Irwin and will definately be going for my 6 monthly check up with him in future. Thank you so much!!

Dental Bridges

Per Unit

A dental bridge spans the gap and replaces the missing teeth with carefully fabricated porcelain crowns which are fixed in place by attaching to the teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are ideal for people who don’t like dentures or only have one or two teeth missing. Bridges are usually made of precious metal bonded to porcelain but with new stronger porcelains available, all porcelain bridges are now an option.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns - Ratoath Dental CentreDental Crowns - Ratoath Dental Centre

How much does a crown cost?  From € 550 depending on the material used. This is tax allowable.

A crown is a protective outer shell or cover that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown (sometimes known as a cap) is used where teeth are badly decayed or broken, or where a tooth is very heavily filled and may lack strength. The tooth is prepared, any decay removed and restored and an impression is then taken. A dental technician then precisely fabricates a crown to fit snugly over the prepared tooth.

Full Dentures are made of an acrylic resin material and the close fit and comfort is complimented by the quality of natural looking teeth. We can offer a range of teeth to choose from but we prefer to use the best quality available. We usually require four visits over eight weeks to make a set of complete dentures. Partial dentures are false teeth which close the gaps between remaining teeth to restore a full smile and improve your bite. They are usually made of an acrylic resin and where required a metal clasp can help to position and hold them in place.

IV Sedation






) in the treatment of nervous patients

Intravenous Sedation is the ‘state of the art’ technique for the complete control of anxiety in dentistry. A sedative drug is used to induce a hypnotic, semi-conscious state and is the method of choice for the treatment of very nervous patients. IV sedation is not a general anaesthetic, but is a safe, more controlled alternative.

Teeth Whitening

The Zoom! Whitening system is a one hour power whitening procedure done in the surgery where a strong whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated under ultra violet light. The results can be seen at the end of the visit and up to six shade changes can be achieved

from €250

Home Whitening Kits

The Nite White at home whitening system uses a more gentle approach to apply a less powerful gel to the teeth over a longer period of time usually about four weeks. The gel is placed into the trays and held against the teeth for two hours a day until the desired whitening results are achieved.

from €500

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin slices of porcelain. These are precisely made to fit over the visible surface of front teeth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and cracks. To make a veneer, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front of the tooth (usually less than 1mm ).  An impression is taken and sent to a dental technician for the veneer to be made in the laboratory. The veneer is then bonded permanently to the tooth and the procedure is complete.

Medical Aesthetics

€275 - €450

Dermal Fillers (20 mins)

Collagen treatments replaces lost volume and treats static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occuring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. It is injected gently under the skin to instantly restore the skins volume, smooth away facial wrinkles and folds and redefine lips. The procedure takes 15-20 minutes and requires local anasthetic. The results are immediate and you will not need any time off work. The effects will last approx 12 months.
