Welcome to Corabbey Dental & Orthodontics

Dr. Carmel Curtin founded Corabbey Dental & Orthodontics (Formerly Corabbey Dental Clinic) in 2004. Dr. Curtin graduated from University College Cork in 1997. She has completed postgraduate studies with both the University of Bristol and Kings College London.

At Corabbey Dental & Orthodontics we have gone to great effort to ensure all Dentists and Specialists have undergone training at the best universities and are registered on the Dental Register and Specialist Dental register as appropriate.

All of the Dentists are constantly updating their knowledge and skills via continuous professional development (CPD) courses and seminars.

Dentistry is advancing at such a rate we want to make sure that we are at the forefront of these changes so that our patients will receive the best care that we can possibly provide. The clinic has grown greatly since 2004 and we are acutely aware that without the goodwill of all of our patients none of this would be possible.

Covid-19 update

On behalf of all of the Corabbey team we want to thank our patients for their co-operation during Covid-19. As you know we have made many changes to ensure the safety of our patients and our team.
It was very important that there would be no patient to patient contact in reception and waiting areas of the clinic. Therefore as you know reception is now managed remotely by Miriam and Mary. Patients wait in their car until they receive a text message informing them the dentist is ready to see them. We use a one way system for patients entering and leaving the building. Temperature is checked upon arrival and hands sanitized. All surfaces patients may touch while passing through the building such as door handles or stairs rail are disinfected after every patient. Payments are managed online. Unfortunately we could not continue with 20 minute dental hygiene appointments and now all dental hygiene appointments are 30 minutes. You will have noticed that the hygienist also now has a dental nurse assisting to maximise cross infection procedures from the moment you enter the building until you exit. We realise this will have upset some of you who were used to availing of the lower fee for 20 minute appointments but in our opinion it was an essential change to guarantee patient safety.

Within each treatment room it is always ensured that cross infection procedures protect patients from viruses such as HIV, hepatitis and now Covid-19. We always wore gloves, masks, visors and used protective barrier tape to cover exposed surfaces all of which are discarded after every patient and often changed during individual appointments. Every treatment room is well ventilated and has air sterilising units with HEPA filters to kill virus particles.

As we were reduced to emergency treatments for nearly three months of the year, it is taking a while to catch up on our backlog and we really appreciate your patience - we are trying to reduce our waiting time for check ups but have to prioritise emergencies that occur on a daily basis.
The guidelines indicate that even in the unfortunate event of the country needing to move into level 5 restrictions, routine dentistry will continue.
The public dental health service faces huge challenges as many dentists and dental nurses who work for the HSE were deployed to Covid-19 test centres. This means many school dental clinic facilities were closed for long periods and risk further closure. It is therefore vital that private dentistry continues to manage patient workloads - if not we face a situation where patients will have to wait many days with a toothache and many weeks for routine dental appointments. It also runs the risk of dental and orthodontic outcomes being compromised.

We hope all of our patients are managing to keep their spirits up during this difficult time. We look forward to better times and once again heartfelt thanks for your support and co-operation.

Carmel, Miriam and all the team.

Well said Bones. I hope Dr. Tony Holohan knows how much we are indebted to him for the way in which he has guided us through the last few months. He and his family are so much in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Dear Patient,

It is never a good time for your child to damage their front teeth as result of trauma - but now really is not a good time!!
Simple things like moving obstacles out of your front room such as coffee tables if kids are jumping off sofas or messing about, encouraging kids to wear their helmets outside even if just pucking the ball themselves, wearing gum shields if kicking a football or going crazy in the trampoline might be enough to keep these traumas away from your door.
The link below explains what to do if a whole adult tooth is knocked out. You never replant a baby tooth.
If a baby tooth is knocked out - don’t worry - you can send us a picture so we can advise you but for the most part no treatment is required. However if baby teeth are pushed upwards you may need to seek attention. Local designated treatment centres will look after these cases.
At the moment we are treating other emergencies which must fall into the category of either a dental abscess or severe tooth ache that has lasted 24 hours or more.

Take care,
Carmel and team.
