If you have recently moved to the area, or had a change in work location, then you may be researching dental practices near you. There are several things a patient might look for when considering a new dental practice. For example, someone may wish to find a family dentist who can provide for the needs of the different members of the household. Many will consider whether a practice offers an emergency dentist Dublin service in case they are ever in need of urgent dental care. Whatever the situation which has brought you to this search, we at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms would be thrilled to provide assistance where we can.
What can I expect as a new patient?
At your first appointment you can expect to have a full examination of your mouth and teeth, including gums, jaw, TMJ and bite. Your dentist will most likely also want to investigate any previous dental work that you have undertaken to assess the condition it is in. X-rays may also be taken, and we may take photographs of issues which are found to record the status quo. You will be offered an oral cancer screening test as part of this routine first appointment.
Alongside this examination, your dentist will discuss any current dental problems with you. They are likely to ask questions about both your dental and medical history which may inform your treatment needs. As part of this discussion you may discuss your wishes for your dental care and if you plan to undergo any aesthetic treatments such as straightening or whitening your teeth.
As a patient at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms you can expect to have access to our emergency dentist Dublin service, as well as the range of treatments we are able to offer. These include but are not limited to: braces, invisible aligners, teeth whitening, veneers, extractions and fillings. For a full list of the treatments we offer, please visit our website, or contact us with any queries which you may have.
What should I do if I need urgent dental treatment?
In some cases, instead of contacting the emergency dentist Dublin, it is more appropriate for you to visit your local A and E department. For example if you have suffered an injury which has caused heavy bleeding which won’t stop, or if you are in severe pain. If you are unsure about the level of care which you should receive, we would be more than happy to advise you about this over the phone.
As an emergency dentist, we are pleased to offer on the day appointments where this is necessary for a patient’s care. At the point of contact it is possible that we may advise you that a next day appointment would be suitable for you. To assess how to best address your needs we would encourage you to contact us by phone for a discussion with one of our friendly team members. We are committed to doing our best to see you in person as soon as possible.
We understand that emergencies are unpredictable and often happen outside of practice hours. If this is the situation you find yourself in, then be encouraged, we have an out-of-hours advice service available to our patients at Dublin 18 Dental rooms.
