I would strongly recommend

5 50 Sedation for dental treatments • Paid: €350

I was delighted with my treatment. Prior to the treatment everything was explained to me, all questions answered and I fully understood what was involved. All the staff are lovely, from Shona on reception to Gill and her colleagues. I would strongly recommend The Dental Suite, particularly for nervous, needle-phobic patients like myself.

Brilliant!

5 50 Permanent Crown

Dr Gillian and her nurse, Sharon, are both brilliant! I always had the same dentist as a child, but have spent my adult life searching for a good dentist. I have been to almost every dental surgery in Bray and quite a few in South Dublin, never to return to any of them, until now. I have 2 sons who play lots of sports and both have broken teeth. Dr Gillian has always been happy to squeeze them in at short notice. The customer service is great too, so expect a follow up call from them to make sure there is no bleeding, pain ect. I have never even recommended a dentist to a friend before, never mind an online review, but they deserve it for time and care taken as well as results.

I have no hesitation recommending the staff at the Dental Suite.

5 50 Dentist Consultation

After getting a toothache last week I phoned the Dental Suite. They could not have been more helpful, accommodating and efficient. The treatment required was explained clearly in a way that was easy to understand. I was treated on the same day I phoned making the whole experience as painless as possible. I have no hesitation recommending the staff at the Dental Suite.

You will not be disappointed!

5 50 Composite Veneers • Paid: €100

I cannot recommend the Dental Suite highly enough. I was immediately put at ease by the caring and gentle manner in which Dr. Gillian and Sharon treated me during my visit last week. I had a veneer fitted for the first time and they explained every step of the procedure very clearly. I was very much impressed by how eager they were to ensure that I was happy with my treatment. If you are looking for a friendly but professionally run family dentist with excellent prices go to The Dental Suite. You will not be disappointed!

I'm delighted that my fillings have settled in without any after pain or tenderness.

4.9 50 Fillings

After many years being a nervous patient I have finally found a dentist that is friendly, very thorough, observant and mindful of my pain threshold (gives the injection time to kick in). I'm delighted that my fillings have settled in without any after pain or tenderness. Gillian and Sharon gave me lots of advice on easy things to do at home to protect my teeth from my grinding habit and how to avoid overbrushing. Professional, great easy access location, lots of parking, modern equipment and lots of treatment options. Will be recommending to family and friends.
