Blessington Dental Surgery has been providing a service to the Kildare and Wicklow area since 2002. Since that time we have expanded and moved to a custom renovated premises. The practice is computerised with digital xrays and an intra oral camera in each surgery. These are very useful to instantly show patients images of their mouth and teeth when explaining the treatment required.
All patients receive a text 24 hours prior to the appointment, to remind them of their appointment time. All patients having complex treatments receive a courtesy phone call the day after to ensure they are comfortable. We strive to see emergency patients on the day.
At Blessington Dental we are committed to keeping standards high by using the most skilled dental technicians, only the most up to date materials and equipment, and ensuring that all staff attend continuous education courses.
Niall and Aoife have always liked the variety of general dentistry and how it gives the opportunity to build a rapport with their patients and their families over the years. They aim to provide treatment with sympathy and a smile. An important philosophy of the practice is to promote oral health with comprehensive oral hygiene instruction and diet advice. Their hope is to minimise the amount of complex expensive dental treatment required through education and instruction.
