    Hi

    Doyle treat children with autism my son is nearly 5 and has a cavity with a temporary filling put into it but it is still giving him abit of hassle,it is very hard to get him to open his mouth to get work done to his teeth and would more than likely need to be sedated for any work done if u could get to me i would be very grateful thanks

      Hi Amanda,
      Thanks for contacting me. I see many people with autism. I find that consistency is important for many people with autism as there is much value in acclimaitising to a dental environment for them. While I concentrate mainly on the treatment of adults, I feel that this consistency is important and I often see children with autism. I work as part of a team including paediatric dentists in Hermitage Dental and as such if there are child specific issues with their teeth I can arrange for your son to see one of my colleagues. We provide a full range of sedation and anaesthetic services.

      If you wish to arrange an acclimatisation visit, where we can arrange for your son to come and visit the practice without any pressure on him to ” complete ” any treatment please feel free to contact my office at (01)6459555 or email the office at info@hermitagedental.ie. Ask them for a 20 min acclimatisation visit with me on a Friday and we can take it from there?

      Please see this link for further details http://specialcaredentist.ie/dentistry-for-people-with-autism-at-the-hermitage/
      If you have any further questions that I can help you with, please reply.

      Kind regards,

      Kev

    Hi,
    i recently snapped two of my front teeth and i have been advised that i need root canal treatment in both…
    i am terrified to the point im considering just leaving the caps on and hoping for the best…
    can you help me for this?
    I cant be awake in the dentist i will freak out,

    thanks,
    David.

    • admin says:

      Hi David,
      sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I advise that you get the root canals finished soon. Unfortunately there is no way of “hoping for the best” with this. If you do not get the rest of the treatment completed soon, things will only get worse for you. Having said that I hear you when you say that you can’t get to a dentist easily and there are thousands exactly like this in Ireland. The best I can suggest is that you find a dentist who will listen to you and provide care slowly and on your terms. Of course, being asleep can help with this. If you want an appointment please email us at info@hermitagedental.ie

      good luck
      Kev

    Hi.

    A few weeks ago I cracked my wisdom tooth and it hurt for a few days but the pain went. Unfortunately it’s now broken and I’ve been in a lot of pain for the past few days – Paracetemol isn’t doing anything.
    My fear of the Dentist has resulted in me not visiting a dentist in over 10 years so I hope you can understand how anxious I’m feeling.

    I’m also concerned about the cost, I have no doubt using general anaesthetic will cost a lot more than a general extraction, and because it’s a wisdom tooth I would imagine the cost will increase again.

    Can you advise please?

    Kind regards,
    Debbie

    • admin says:

      Hi Debbie, this sounds tricky for you.. General anaesthetic is expensive but many oral surgeons and dentists use sedation for this type of treatment which can be just as effective at controlling anxiety for this type of treatment and much cheaper! Get a consult with a dentist or direct with an oral surgeon. It is normally easier than you imagine! Good luck

  4. Sharon says:

    Hi I haven’t visited a dentist in 18 years(I wax given tablets to relax me last time but it took 4 ) as I am terrified but A large piece of a back tooth has just fallen out and I know it’s going to cause me pain .Ive wanted to get my teeth sorted for a while but fear is putting me off .I would definitely need to be completely sedated as even the smell will give me a panic attack .Is this possible ? Also I’m on a medical card .Do You accept them ?

    • admin says:

      Hi Sharon, well done for making the first move to get on top of this. This situation is unfortunately very common . People who are phobic can end up in a situation that gets out of control and the most important thing to do is to get into a dentist who will give you complete control. I am happy to see you and look at your teeth. We can chat and make a plan. Unfortunately I do not take medical card. Medical card does not cover sedation. Insurance can be cost effective if you need a lot of treatment but to be honest almost every phobic person who I see has better teeth than they expect to have! Call my office if you want an appointment. Seize the opportunity to go somewhere at least! Good on you

  5. Sharon Flynn says:

    i have 3 teeth that need removing and I’m in a lot of pain to the extent I can’t sleep getting 10 mins here and there I’m so afraid of the dentist and I have been considering the getting put asleep option asap please help

    Kindest regards
    Sharon

    • admin says:

      Hi Sharon, the best I can advise is to arrange to visit a dentist who provides sedation or anaesthesia. You Re welcome to come see me by ringing the office, and asking to come for a chat. I will be glad to help you.

  6. Emer Dennany says:

    Hi,
    I am looking to change dentist and my question is do you exclusively deal in special dentist care or do you accept regular patients as well?

    Many thanks

    Regards,
    Emer

    • admin says:

      Hi Eimear, I see people with disabilities and phobias and medical problems. There are loads of great dentists out there for the general public. I took your details down because these are posted publicly. Good luck.

  7. susan darcy says:

    can u tell me how you go about been put asleep for extractions

    • admin says:

      Hi Susan,
      To go asleep at the dentists means a couple of things. Normally this might mean either general anaesthetic or IV sedation. I can provide both at Hermitage Dental. The first thing to do is have a consult. If you want to come in for a consultation, call 016459555.

  9. Elaine says:

    Hey im just wondering do u see children my son is 4 an has an asd disorder is so nervous. He needs 3 fillings done but wont keep his mouth open or let cotton wool ect in tgank you

    • admin says:

      Hi Elaine,
      I hope this went OK for you.
      I generally think that a child at that age is best with a paediatric dentist as they are more skilled in treatments for baby teeth.
      There are some great paediatric dentists working with me here in Hemritage.
      Having said that, I am happy to help if you feel that is best.
      Regards,
      Kev

  10. Caroline McHugh says:

    Hello,
    My daughter is 4yrs 10mths and is in terrible pain with her top back tooth.
    We went to the dentist last week to have a filling done but my daughter was in so much pain that the dentist was unable to give her the filling.
    I was wondering if anyone could help my daughter as I am worried her tooth might get infected and in time have to be pulled.
    Kind regards…

  15. Lana says:

    Hello,

    I’m not sure if I qualify for a phobia, but I do develop a strong anxiety before a dental visit every time, like these days. I’m quite jumpy in the dentist’s chair, and also I sometimes have difficulty getting numb.
    I need more than one injection and can still feel things. That’s why I thought I should try the inhalation sedation, as I had it during the birth of both of my children. I would really want to avoid being scolded into being an adult and sitting still, would love the doctor to take time with me and talk me through it. Thank you in advance,
    Lana

    • admin says:

    • admin says:

      Hi Michelle, I hope I can. I know how hard it can be to get to the dentist for many people like you. I would be happy to arrange a “meet and greet” at my clinic if that takes some of the pressure off you. You can come and meet me and the team. Otherwise if you want to call in for an assessment give us a call – 016459555 – look forward to hearing from you
