3Dental Questions on COVID

What precautions are we taking at 3Dental?

We are:

  • Following guidelines put forward by the WHO and the HSE
  • We have IQair dental model air purification systems in our clinics. HyperHEPA filtration filters 95% of even these tiniest of viruses and other contaminants
  • Triaging patients via phone, email and video
  • We require all patients who are experiencing any flu-like symptoms not to visit the clinics. 

We are providing:

  • Hand-sanitiser in all areas (clinical and non-clinical)
  • The highest standard of PPE (personal protective equipment) to our clinicians
  • Hydrogen peroxide pre-procedural mouth rinse for all patients
  • We have increased our disinfection rate in all clinical and non-clinical areas
  • We have considerably reduced the number of patients we are seeing and are maintaining social distancing in the clinics

Which appointments are considered essential and emergency?

A general guideline is if you are experiencing pain or discomfort, you may be eligible to attend an appointment.

To arrange an appointment, please contact the DublinLimerick or Galway clinic.

What procedures should I follow when visiting the clinic?

For up to date information visit

When attending an appointment at 3Dental, we ask that you observe these practices:

  • Do not visit the clinic if you are exhibiting any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Wash your hands frequently with warm soapy water and use hand sanitiser provided 
  • Maintain social distancing

What should I do if I have broken a tooth?

A broken tooth could be sensitive or painful. What's more, if left untreated, a broken tooth could get worse.

If you have broken a tooth, call your clinic, and we can advise you on the best course of action.

For veneer and composite bonding patients

A patient undergoing a cosmetic treatment who is wearing a temporary crown or veneers may need to come in to fit the permanent tooth, especially if the temporary is coming loose or is not correctly functioning.

Contact your nearest clinic to discuss.

What do denture patients need to know?

Patients wearing dentures should continue to clean their dentures as recommended.

If you have questions about your denture or believe you need an appointment, call your nearest clinic, and we will be able to advise you.
