About us
Our Team

Southgate Dental began treating patients on Wed 18th Sept. 2013.

We are thrilled to say that our first year was a very positive and busy one, and we are extremely excited to see what the coming years have in store for us. Our clinic and staff have gone from strength to strength, seeing almost 2000 patients so far, with a team that has increased in size from 2 to 10. We hope to continue this success in the future and strive to provide the best possible service and care to all our patients.

The staff at Southgate Dental Clinic (SDC) are delighted to welcome you and your family to our state of the art dental practice at Southgate Shopping Centre, in Drogheda. Approx. 30mins from Dublin and 1hr from Belfast, with free onsite parking. One of our aims and objectives, is to ensure that all our patients feel relaxed and comfortable in a welcoming and friendly environment. We try to ensure that only the surgical areas feel clinical and that our open plan reception, waiting and communal areas are clean, have good facilities and are well maintained and friendly, a place where our patients can chat, read and relax.

Collectively the staff at SDC have been providing calm, professional, cost effective dental care for over 30 years, both in Ireland and abroad, with excellent aesthetic results. We are a modern, general and specialist practice who can provide a full spectrum of dental treatments, using only the highest standards and materials. Ranging from your annual check-up and clean to Implants and Orthodontics (Braces). We are currently one of 10 dental practices in Ireland with a cone beam CT scan.

All of these facilities in one location mean there is no longer a need for referral as our team of Dentists and Specialists are available under one roof, for your convenience. Thus saving, you, our patient valuable time.

You no longer have to travel to Europe for the benefit of low cost dental treatment, as it is all available in our well designed Clinic at Southgate. Giving you that much needed sense of security, should you experience any difficulties post treatment.

Southgate Dental Clinic can meet all your dental requirements, with experienced staff, who care passionately about the service they are providing you.

We look forward to treating you and taking care of your smile.
