New Patients

Welcome to Nostra Dental, a family run, patient-oriented practice

New Patients

Our aim is to provide a pleasant and relaxing experience, while offering a comprehensive range of high quality general and cosmetic dental care in a comfortable and professional environment.

During your initial dentist consultation, we will take the time to discuss all your treatment options with you and provide an extensive exam, including x-rays, gum assessment, and photographs, with a treatment plan and breakdown of the costs.

First Visit


A dental and medical history questionnaire is filled out, so that your dentist knows about any preexisting conditions and about any previous dental problems you may have experienced. It is also advised to bring along a list of any medications that you are currently taking, or have taken in the past.


One of our dentists will welcome you into the surgery, where he or she will initially listen to any concerns or questions you may have about your dental treatment, discuss whether you have come to us for a specific problem or procedure, or just want a general dental check-up.


A comprehensive oral health assessment will follow, including checking your teeth (dental decay, tooth function, your bite), your gum health (periodontal exam) and your soft tissue (mouth cancer check). X-rays may be taken with your consent.

Treatment Planning

When your initial examination is complete, our dentist will then discuss her or his findings with you. This will also incorporate your dentist providing you with a written treatment plan, which will include all the projected costs.

PRSI Patients

New patients may be entitled under the new PRSI scheme to a FREE consultation and cleaning.

If you are employed and paying PRSI you may be entitled to avail of this scheme. When booking your appointment, have your PPS number ready and we can check for you before your scheduled appointment. You will then be entitled to a free dental exam per calendar year thereafter.

We offer a wide range of treatments to cater for apprehensive patients such as I.V sedation/nitrous oxide (also know as laughing gas), oral sedation (anti-anxieties), and Intra Nasal sedation for patients who are needle phobic.
