Resumption Of Regular Services

After 9 weeks of being limited to emergency treatment only, we are delighted that the Government and Dental Council have given the green light for the resumption of routine dental services.

We will resume routine services from tomorrow, Monday 18/5.

Cross infection control of the highest standard is a cornerstone of daily dental practice, and we have implemented many new polices and procedures to ensure the safety of patients and staff alike.

To comply with social distancing requirements or aim is to only allow one patient in the practice at a time.

Our appointment booking protocol has changed to reflect this and will result in a significant reduction in the number of patients that we can see in a day. You may have to wait slightly longer for an appointment, please bear with us in this regard, it is for your safety.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful patients for their understanding and patience during this difficult time. I look forward to welcoming you all back to the practice.

We are absolutely delighted to become the first and only dental clinic in Ireland to become a member of the SlowDentistry® worldwide network of dental clinics.

SlowDentistry® aims to improve the standard of care in dental practices worldwide to ensure the safety, well-being, comfort, and understanding of our patients.

Historically dental practices have been based on patient turnover with an emphasis on seeing as many patients as possible in a day. This model results in patient’s feeling rushed, patients not understanding the full array of treatment options available to them, and unfortunately mistakes occurring.

SlowDentistry® is a philosophy that we live by in the practice, where our goal is provide our patients with high quality dentistry in a friendly, relaxed, and calm environment. A visit to the dentist can understandably be a stressful experience for some patients, and we strive to make every patient who comes to the practice as calm and relaxed as possible. Our SlowDentistry® approach allows us sufficient time with every patient to discuss all aspects of their treatment in detail, ensure the patient fully understands and consents to the treatment, and provide the treatment in a safe and comfortable manner.

The safety of our patients and staff alike continues to be the number one priority for the entire team here at Blackrock Dental. Cross Infection Control of the highest standard is a cornerstone of daily dental practise. This will become even more important post the Covid-19 pandemic, and our membership of the SlowDentistry® network ensures that we are adhering to the highest standards to ensure the safety, well-being, and comfort of our patients.
