Treatment TypeProcedure Update
General appointments, hygiene appointments, and check-upsWill be postponed unless the patient is experiencing pain or extreme discomfort.
Orthodontics including braces adjustmentsWill be rescheduled. There is no adverse effect for postponing braces adjustments.
InvisalignWill need to be delayed. If you are currently scheduled for an Invisalign check-up, continue to wear your most recent Invisalign tray(s).
CosmeticFor the most part, cosmetic appointments will be rescheduled. In the case of essential treatment, you will be contacted to arrange a time.
Implant procedures and dental surgeriesThe necessity of these procedures will be determined on a case by case basis, and patients will be contacted before scheduled appointments.

Generally, if you are not in pain or extreme discomfort, your appointment should be postponed until things return to normal.

We will continue to implement all guidelines put forward by the WHO and HSE and take any measures we feel are necessary to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.

Procedures will be in place at the clinic, including
