Flashback - How we started
Dental tourism was a massive deal in the Noughties. Patients decided to seek out affordable healthcare options outside Ireland, mainly for dental solutions. Dentists either arrived to Ireland to carry out consultations or promoted packages to patients who were willing to travel.
Our Clinic exactly started like this. Dr William arrived to Ireland and completed consultation after consultation in Kerry for treatment to be carried out in Hungary. Patients came back singing his praises so more and more of them travelled over to Hungary where miraculous dental transformations happened.
Of course patients also had concerns and one was the question of aftercare. What if something went wrong? Do they have to travel back?
The more patients they treated, the more obvious it became to Dr William and Dr Krisztián that they need to set up a base in Ireland for aftercare maintenance which they did in the summer of 2011.
Then they decided to take on consultations for new patients and the first weekend was an enormous success. Patients were amazed by the prices combined with the expertise that was offered. Suddenly dental care became widely accessible.
From there, the Clinic grew and grew; so much that the principals could not keep it as a part-time practice so they made a life-changing decision and both of them moved to Ireland with their families in early 2012.
This unexpected but not undeserved success kept giving through the years and hard work and dedication really paid off. More and more staff joined the Clinic as it grew along with its patient based.
Only recently we reached our 20,000th registered patient which is an enormous success but a great responsibility as well! We constantly strive for excellent patient care 7 days a week and it requires maturity, discipline and passion from all of us all day every day!
Finally, let us show you some numbers we reached in the last 7 years and are proud of:
20,000 REGISTERED PATIENTS
8,000 FACEBOOK LIKES
16 DENTISTS AND SPECIALISTS
9,800 DENTAL CROWNS PLACED

We celebrated the Carlow Dental Centre’s 7th birthday in June 2018, and this makes us grown up. We have set values as a company and we follow these to ensure that our patients get the best care whatever their dental problem is.
