"Why wont you give me a price over the phone?"
All jobs are different. You may for example want a single implant, but do you need gum graft, bone graft, what's your bite like, what's the condition of your other teeth, do you require bleaching, are you suitable for implant due to medical conditions. Without a complete examination your guess is as good as ours. Please do not ask for quotation over the phone, we cannot tell you any more than the fee section on this website does.
"Why are fees in a range of prices?"
Fees for any dental treatment will depend on the specific case. A single front crown requires more time and more expensive laboratory work for a perfect result than a crown on a back tooth. Each job is different.
"Why are multiple teeth less expensive than single teeth?"
There is some economy of scale when you are having more than one tooth treated at the same time. We pass this saving on to you.
"I have medical insurance, Will I have to pay an extra fee to the surgeon to remove my impacted wisdom teeth?"
No, our oral surgeon Mr. Rogers is fully participating which means you pay nothing extra for procedures covered under the insurance schedule of benefits (see here). You will have to pay only the consultation fee.
"I need fillings, why do you not have prices for routine dental treatments"
We do not routinely provide this type of treatment. We are a specialist practice concentrating on prosthetic and surgical dental treatments. Our fee guide reflects our limited practice.
"I had an extraction before with a general dentist and it was a lot less?"
Some teeth/wisdom teeth are impacted against the bone or tooth in front. These are harder to remove and are more expensive. Upper wisdom teeth are usually easier to remove.
"I have looked on the Internet and found prices cheaper than yours"
We offer only superior quality work carried out by dental specialists. This works costs a little bit more. Just like you can buy a car for anywhere between €500 - €100,000 quality, expertise, experience and performance is sometimes worth paying a bit more for. Cost and Value are not the same thing.
"If I ring your practice can you tell me exactly how much my treatment will cost. I think I need "x" treatment?"
Our reception staff cannot estimate costs over the phone. We need to examine your mouth, X-rays and plan the case. Sometimes things are more simple than you think, sometimes thing are more complex than you think. Sometimes we may present alternative treatment options which you may be unaware of. Sometimes we can discount prices more than our standard prices. Every estimate requires a consultation. Consultations cannot be carried out over the phone.
"Why is your deep bleaching more expensive?"
We use the KoR method of deep bleaching. This is different from standard bleaching and gets superior results.
"I need a tooth removed will my VHI, Quinn, Aviva pay for it?"
In some circumstances it will. See here for information on what medical insurance covers.
"Does your dental implant pricing include placement and restoration?"
Yes, our fee is inclusive of all steps. We offer the best value specialist implants in Ireland, North or South.
"Will my VHI, Quinn, Aviva cover my implant treatment?"
In some circumstances it will partly pay for dental implants. See here for information on what medical insurance covers.
"Do you offer Mini-Implants"
Only as temporary supports for provisional teeth.
"Why should I pay for a consultation?"
A consultation is not an opportunity for us to sell you treatment, its an opportunity for you to find out what you options are for improved oral health. Just as you would pay for a consultation with a medical or surgical specialist, so it is with us. We will credit you the consultation fee on treatment valued over 3000 euro. Any X-rays are included in the consultation fee.
