What Makes 3Dental Dublin Special? - Shauna Ward
Trust is a huge component in this decision, and with so many dental clinics to choose from in Dublin, which one should you go for?

Getting a referral from someone you know, location and accessibility or seeing good online reviews can all be important factors that may sway your decision.


So, imagine if you could combine high quality dental treatments, competitive prices, all the latest in dental technology and lots of happy customers in only one place? 

With a modern and impressive structure, a highly qualified dental team and a friendly staff, we’ve treated thousands of patients in the last 3 and a half years.

In this post, we are going to give you 6 good reasons to consider 3Dental Dublin as your dental practice from now on :)

1. Affordable Dental Pricing

Treatments & Affordable Pricing at 3Dental Dublin

When 3Dental was created, we wanted to give people an alternative to travelling abroad to find cheap dentists. We want people to know that they can visit our Dublin clinic and get any dental treatment that they require completed to the highest possible standard at an affordable price.

Offering our patients competitive prices coupled with the highest standards in modern dental treatments is our main priority.

After your free initial consultation, we’ll give you the treatment options so you can choose whatever suits you best. 

Apart from the attractive price list, we also offer payment plans for treatments over €1,000, with 0% interest.

You can make a direct debit from your account, or also pay after every appointment if you prefer. Our front of house staff will be very happy to find the ideal solution for you!

Monthly Payments Made Easy With humm

In addition, 3Dental is now a partner of humm, which makes finance simple by allowing you to pay in monthly instalments.

Basically, they pay us for your treatment, and then you pay them back. You can select the plan that suits you and you can even pay back early without any penalties - putting you in total control. 

2. Reviews and Testimonials

Any dental practice will be quick to tell you how great they are, however, what you want to look for is what other people are saying here.

We have treated thousands of patients, and we’ve enhanced lots and lots of happy and beautiful smiles!

3. Opening Hours

Flexible opening hours is also very important in your choice. It makes life easier if you can get an early morning or a late appointment, instead of taking hours away from work or skipping school or college. 

For the convenience of our patients, we are open:

Dublin: Mon - Fri: 8am - 8pm | Sat: 9am - 5pm

4. After Care

For any dental treatment you receive, you are going to need maintenance. From simple 6 months reviews to regular orthodontic adjustments, you always have to go back to your dentist.

After care is a very important part of the treatment, and should be considered before you decide to go abroad to get something done.

Imagine if you have to jump into a plane, pay for accommodation and take time away from work every time you have an issue with your teeth?

The downside of travelling abroad for dental treatment is that there is very little follow up care involved. Dr. Peter Doherty

At 3Dental Dublin, we make it a habit to follow up with all our patients after their procedures. 

We have a whole section of our section dedicated to post treatment advice and guidance for our patients.

We make sure someone is available if you have additional questions or concerns or you if you have an emergency.

5. Emergency Dentist Dublin

Getting a dental emergency appointment with a dentist in Dublin with flexible hours can be a challenge.

So when you are choosing a clinic, it is very important to make sure you can be seen by a dentist at short notice.

As we have extended opening hours, even if your own dentist is not available in the moment, we will always make someone available to solve your problem, even if temporarily to take away any pain or to answer any questions you might have. 

Just give us a call or send an email, and we will do our best to fit you in as soon as possible.
