3Dental Officially Opens

22 April 2016

3Dental officially opened its doors on Thursday, April 21st, 2016 – with a vow to tackle the issue of dental tourism across the country.

Niall, Paul and Peter marked the special occasion on Thursday evening by cutting the ribbon on the state-of-the-art facility in front of an intimate crowd of invited guests including friends and family.

The guys will now focus their efforts on giving those travelling abroad to have dentist work carried out a serious, cost-effective alternative to overseas dentistry.

Paul said: 

The main aim in setting up this clinic was to try to limit the huge flow of Irish patients travelling abroad to get their treatments done. Dr.Paul O'Connell
In the past this has basically been due to the high cost of dentistry here. We want to provide an alternative to that. We want to offer the best dentistry and we aim to provide every patient with a range of quality treatments that are very affordable. Dr.Paul O'Connell

Our founders, dentists Niall Vallely, Paul O’Connell and Peter Doherty, are aiming to present a long term solution for the thousands of people who travel abroad for dentistry due to high costs and inaccessibility.

With prices that will allow us to compete with our counterparts in Europe and Northern Ireland 3Dental ensures a safe, modern and cost-effective service for our clients.

3Dental - Service, Quality and Affordability

During the opening on Thursday evening Niall, Paul and Peter spoke about the new venture and their excitement at bringing this low-cost model to the people of Dublin. Peter said:

The concept behind 3Dental is to deliver high quality, affordable dentistry in relaxed, modern surroundings, and to make that as accessible to as many people as possible. We believe that dental health is a necessity, not a luxury and we intend to make it more accessible to achieve a good standard of dental health. Dr. Niall Vallely

In his opening address Niall acknowledged the many people who helped the guys on this journey, including their families, friends and business team as well as South Dublin County Council. He said:

The council was eager to help and direct us were possible to get this business up and running in this location and was interested in what we were trying to do and facilitated us – instead of fighting us. Dr. Niall Vallely

3Dental is open now at Red Cow House on the Naas Road.
