Kind words from our patients
I spotted Dr. Jacqueline O’Brien advertising on The Clare Echo, booked an appointment which i had within days and I can safely say I will be recommending Jacqueline to my own friends and family in future. She was very kind and patient throughout my appointment and made me feel extremely comfortable. A super dentist and one i see using for many years to come.
I had a dental emergency and my own practice couldn’t fit me in. Jacqueline saw me at very short notice and could not have been nicer or more pleasant to deal with. Would absolutely recommend and will be switching dentists going forward
Amazing practice ! everyone is so nice as you walk in the door ! Explain things very thoroughly I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist!

Gum disease is a bacterial infection of the gums that, if left untreated,
can damage the bone that support your teeth.

Scaling & Hygiene
Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for preventing oral health problems. At our Limerick city dental clinic, we offer scaling, polishing, and deep cleaning services to help keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.
During a hygiene appointment, we remove any build-up of plaque and tartar, to help prevent gum disease.
Scaling, Polishing & Deep Cleaning
Scaling involves removing any build-up of plaque / tartar from your teeth and gum line.
Polishing on the other hand helps to remove any surface stains.
Deep cleaning involves a more thorough cleaning to remove bacteria and debris from below the gum line.
The benefits of these procedures include fresher breath, a brighter smile, and reduced risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Frequently Asked Questions
It is generally recommended that patients have a dental exam every six months. In certain instances, an examination may be advised more frequently.
Firstly, the dentist will go through your medical history and ask about any medications that you may be taking. Then we move on to assess the face and neck for any ‘lumps or bumps’ or issues with your jaw joint. We then move inside the mouth to check the skin (mucosa) of your mouth to make sure it is healthy. Next we will assess your teeth and gums. The last part of the examination would be to take any necessary dental x-rays, if required.
