Portobello Dental Clinic on Dublin’s South Circular Road ‘swept the boards’ at the recent Irish Dentistry Awards, winning a total of three awards including Irish Dentistry’s ‘Practice of the Year 2014’, ‘Best Website’ and for the second time ‘Best Practice in Dublin’, which the clinic previously won in 2012. The awards, which are organised by Irish Dentistry Magazine recognise and honour excellence in the dental industry.
Portobello Dental Clinic was formed in 2004 by Dr Helen Walsh and Dr Nick Beirne. They lead a highly qualified team with one other dentist and an in-house hygienist, and are supported by a clinic manager, four qualified dental surgery assistants and three clinic coordinators.
Dr. Nick Beirne commenting on the recent wins said, “We are honoured to have been awarded in 3 separate categories at this year’s Irish Dentistry Awards, especially the title of “Practice for the Year Ireland 2014”. The team at Portobello Dental Clinic always aim to offer an extremely high level of service, and we pride on our professional skills and patient care”.
Dr Helen Walsh continued; “All of our services have been developed with our patients’ best interest in mind. For example we offer sedation for those with a phobia of dentistry, e-consultations with recommendations on treatments based on information and a photograph from the client, and working appointments around clients’ busy schedules.”
Portobello Dental Clinic consistently offers an extremely high level of service and prides itself on the professional skills of its team. Each person brings their individual professional expertise to this multi award-winning clinic, working together to ensure the best care for patients.
The extensive range of dental services covers all advanced dental treatments, including intravenous sedation for nervous patients, dental implants, root canal treatments, crowns, and veneers. All of the dental surgeons have a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry and smile design including bonding and Six Month Smiles™. No matter how complex or how simple the dental requirements, Portobello Dental Clinic has a solution, offering exemplary dental care in a warm, professional and friendly environment.
The clinic provides free consultations with a treatment coordinator to assess what needs to be done, and if the patient is eligible for treatment. ‘E Consultations’ are also available where the patient is asked to upload a picture showing as many of their teeth as possible and describing what they’re unhappy with. A dental expert will respond with a recommendation on treatment.
The practice was also awarded the ‘Best Website Award’ based on the comprehensive level of information available and the ease of navigation, www.
portobellodental.com. The site contains a comprehensive insight into the clinic itself, including backgrounds on each of the dentists and their qualifications. All of the available treatments are clearly outlined and supported with video footage and photography of before and after shots, along with patient testimonials. The price list for all services and special offers is also clearly displayed.
