Docklands Dental are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Best High Technology Practice for the 2016 Irish Dental Awards – otherwise known as the OSCAR for Irish dental practices. We opened our doors at the beginning of 2013, so to be nominated every year since is a true testament to not only our high tech surgery clinic but also acting as undeniable evidence of our remarkable customer services.
More about the Irish Dentistry Awards
The Irish Dentistry Awards is one of the most highly anticipated events in the dental calendar. The organisation recognises regional excellence in the UK and Ireland. Those shortlisted are at the very top of their profession, so to be chosen is true evidence of greatness.
Docklands Dental were shortlisted for several awards in total including Best Practice of the Year and of course, the Best High Technology Practice. This particular category is competitive and recognises the practices that use the latest digital technological advances available to provide the best services and customer experience to its clients.
“We are delighted to be recognised in this category as one of Ireland’s most high tech practices. Dentistry has advanced rapidly over the last few years with the advent of digital technology, patient education and entertainment systems,” said Dr. Gregg Barry. “We devote countless hours searching for and training in the technology and services that we think will benefit our patients the most. The experience people have of what it means to go to the dentist is just not the same anymore.”

If you have ever been on the dentist’s chair then you’ve probably encountered that awkward moment when the dentist is working away and you don’t know whether to look at them, close your eyes, or stare blankly up at the ceiling. Thankfully, at Docklands Dental, each surgery is equipped with a state of the art 42 inch Smart TV on the ceiling so instead of looking at a blank ceiling, you can indulge in some quality Netflix or Spotify entertainment. The sound quality is exceptional thanks to the included speaker systems installed inside each of the smart TV’s.
Intra Oral Cameras
Each of our Adec 500 chairs are fitted with a special intra-oral camera which connects to the smart televisions fitted on the ceilings. If you have ever wondered what your mouth and teeth looks like from the dentist’s perspective, you can view it for yourself thanks to this ground-breaking technology.
Instead of sitting in our reception twiddling your thumbs and pondering about the meaning of life, you can enjoy a relaxing waiting area that offers patients free wireless internet, Sonos wireless HiFi, Nespresso coffee and an iPad for patient check in. The Sonos wireless HiFi speakers are installed throughout the practice and enables patients to listen to their favourite tunes on Spotify or radio.
CEREC – Single Visit Digital Dentistry
Our patients can have multiple treatments carried out in a single visit thanks to our CEREC Omni-cam. Instead of having to make countless appointments, you can have the whole ordeal behind you by the end of your first visit. Chair time and overheads are decreased dramatically, allowing patients to save valuable time in their everyday schedules. In order to use CEREC properly, our staff has attended international courses to further our skills and expertise with the machine.
Global G3 Microscope
Technology is important to us here at Docklands Dental because it enables us to deliver world class customer services. The G3 Global microscope is used to enhance the general restorative dentistry and endodontic skills of all dentists. We have seen our clinical success and diagnosis rates improve drastically since we invested in the G3 Global microscope.
Docklands Dental’s exceptional customer services and advanced technologies has propelled us into the Dentistry Awards spotlight and this is exactly where we intend to stay.
