"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!!"

"Thanks a million Dr Regina Flanagan and her nurse Dominika at Ratoath Dental Centre for the superb job on my front teeth. I'm just totally amazed at the high standard of dentistry I received. It's reassuring to know that there are some good professionals out there at work. I couldn't praise or thank you enough."
"Just a note to thank Conor and his nurse for looking after me so well last Wednesday. The sedation was fantastic. there are no words to describe how well it works. I have now had a non traumatic visit to the dentist and all work done and up to date. see you all in 6 months."
"I would like to say a big thank you to Conor and his team. I was an extremely nervous patient and from the moment I stepped through the door I was made to feel so welcome and in turn this made me feel so relaxed. Conor and staff are great My teeth were a disgrace and now I'm so happy with the results. Because of the IV sedation procedure, I now have no fear of going back anytime."
"I had a consultation today and was very pleased with the excellent service provided. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The examination was very thorough and I will be returning for treatment in 3 weeks. Overall extremely satisfied ."
"2 fillings and cleaning Treatment went well and will continue later this year. Best experience I have had with dental centres."
"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 would just like to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Ratoath Dental Centre and in particular to Dr. Conor Irwin and his super assistant Hannah for their total professionalism, courtesy and patience, I would also like to commend them on their aftercare/emergency services which are second to none. I had six replacement veneers and a crown and was terrified of having the procedure carried out, Dr Irwin and Hannah both went to great lengths to explain the procedure and what it entailed and answered all my questions clearly and in detail so my anxiety levels plummeted and I was super confident that the procedure would be carried out as painlessly and as efficiently as possible and wow what an amazing job they did! I have not stopped smiling since I left the clinic I really cannot say enough about them and I certainly will not be going to any other dentist in the future. From the moment you arrive in the clinic you feel instantly reassured that you are surrounded by professionals and the stress and nervousness seems to just disappear, again a huge thank you to everybody there and I will recommend you to everybody I meet!!!! G.M"
"Very punctual, professional and a great service. Will continue to go there for treatment. Thanks"
"I could not speak more highly of the Ratoath Dental Centre or its staff. I am extremely anxious about the dentist, and the staff were incredibly patient and understanding. They did everything they could to make the experience as easy as possible. During the consult I was allowed to sit on the sofa instead of in the dental chair while they spoke to me. I had IV sedation but very bad veins, so the dentist took almost an hour to just get an IV started. They even went as far as to use a numbing solution on my arms so I didn't feel the IV line going in. On top of all that, Dr. Irwin went above and beyond to save my tooth knowing how important it was to me not to have it pulled. The work itself was fabulous as well, I didn't have to take even a Paracetamol tablet afterwards and the tooth feels great. A big huge thank you to Dr Irwin and all the others at the dental clinic - my new best friends!"
"I was the most nervous person had not been to a dentist in 16 years suffered many a painful night with my teeth, decided one day or my wife decided could not continue with the pain and made the appointment could not believe I made it to the dentist’s chair had alot of work to get done but from the time I went in,I knew this time it would be ok had to get sedation done but the staff were fantastic , would have no problem in returning no more bad bad toothaches.Thanks"
