Dr Deirdre Ní Dhonnchadha

Meet Dr Deirdre Ní Dhonnchadha

Dr Deirdre Ní Dhonnchadha graduated from University College Cork, with honours. She was awarded the Noel Hayes Gold Medal in Oral Surgery. She worked in private practice for two years, and fell in love with general practice. Committed to continual professional development, she was awarded the Diploma in Primary Care Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin. She then moved onto a post as Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Cork University Hospital and Dental School, where she gained invaluable training and surgical experience under the expert watch of Professor Duncan Sleeman. Her real passion is her patients at her dental clinic in Meath. Providing them with the best dental care, while putting them at ease is the ethos upon which that inspired this clinic.

Latest Techniques

We’re passionate about dentistry. So we’ve designed this surgery around the dentistry we would like to deliver. We have invested in all of the latest equipment. We’re committed to continually up-skilling and maintaining our professional development so that we can confidently say that all of our patients are availing of the best of modern dentistry. And this is just the beginning! We’re excited to continue to add services as we grow and build around what our patients need.

We are so proud of the beautiful, state of the art surgery we have here. We have created this with our patients experience in mind. Sit back and relax, as modern digital dentistry makes your experience as seamless and pleasant as possible while you are with us!

Dental Care for the Whole Family

The beauty of General Dentistry is that we welcome everyone into our clinic. Oral health is still important even if you don’t have any teeth! We can advise you of the best way to take care of your teeth so that we can prevent problems, as well as treat them. It’s important to have a prescribed individualised oral health routine – we’re all different, and we all have different needs. Our dentistry is the only dental clinic in Meath you’ll need. We’re here to help you!

You’re in Good Hands!

We feel strongly about reaching out to those who have dental anxiety.

Some people are afraid of going to the dentist. Some people have had unpleasant experiences in the past, and find it difficult to access services or accept treatment.

If you’re a nervous patient or worried about coming to the dentist, please let us know. We have a tried and tested method of making people comfortable, and working at their pace to make dental treatment as easy and as enjoyable as possible for them.

We offer a non-clinical consultation for those who find that clinical settings trigger their anxieties. If you would like to get to know your dentist in a non-clinical setting, ask questions, or even just get a tour of our practice before you commit to an examination – this is the place for you.

Each patient commands the pace at which the consultation goes. When you’re with us, you’re the most important person in the room. Let us know what works for you, and more importantly if something is making you feel uncomfortable and we will work around it.

If you have additional needs, which makes coming to the dentist difficult, please let us know so that we can endeavour to meet them.

“Nicest lady and most professional I have ever met, made me feel so comfortable when getting all my work done and it was all pain free! I couldn’t be more delighted with the results. I couldn’t recommend anyone better for the job! Definitely won’t be going to anyone else. If I had to give Deirdre a rating I would have say 10/10 for sure. I wish her all the best in the future.”

“My sons received excellent care from Deirdre, she has a superb way with children who have special needs. I would highly recommend Deirdre”

“For someone whose fear of the dental surgery is on the severe end of the TERRIFIED scale… I can only sincerely tell you from my many visits to Deirdre, that I have learned to actually cope with the experience now. She has a way about her that gets me to STAY in her chair. I love the easy way she chats to make a body feel comfortable and her professionalism in her work is second to none. If I could write this review in gold I certainly would. I wish her well in her practice and can only say our loss is surely someone else’s gain”
