Boyne Dental and Implant Clinic - Hero Image

About Us

Our mission statement

To enhance self-confidence and quality of life for all our patients.

About our practice

Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic was established in 2012 by the dynamic team of Dr David Murnaghan and his wife Carol Murnaghan.  The practice has since grown from a small 2 surgery practice to the large and beautifully renovated Old Courthouse in the heart of the bustling town of Navan, Co. Meath.   With it’s high ceilings, large windows and beautiful artwork, you will be welcomed into an environment that offers clinical care in an atmosphere of efficiency, warmth and understated elegance.  Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic now offers the dedicated services of eight highly qualified and passionate dentists and three hygienists.  Our clinical and non-clinical support teams drive the standards that have always defined the practice.  We are confident that we can offer you a patient journey unparalleled in the area.

In this comfortable setting your goals will be carefully discussed.  We can integrate aesthetics as part of your total dental health, considering your natural and unique facial appearance and form at each stage.  Our approach to improving your smile is conservative and will have a positive impact on your overall appearance and self-confidence.

We are a top referral practice in the area.  What this means is that other practices who may not have the equipment or specialist experience for some treatments will ask us to care for their patients.  We are honoured to have been selected by so many practices within 60kms of ours to provide these services.  We provide the treatment required and return patients to the care of their own dentist with a full report and any appropriate care instructions.

We offer a full range of Dental Cosmetic solutions, from tooth whitening – full mouth implants.  Whether you’re looking for braces or preventative dental care for you or your family, you will find all you need at Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic.

Making people smile is our mission at Boyne Dental.  We believe that everyone deserves a happy and healthy smile and patient care is our passion.

Dental X-rays and Your Consent.

  1. Patient well-being.

Your dentist can only learn a certain amount by looking directly at the teeth in your mouth.  About 60% of your tooth is  hidden below the gum line, and is only visible using  by taking an X-ray.  A dental X-ray is taken to assess and monitor your teeth, jaw bone structure and gums to plan treatments.  It will also show if there are any problems hidden from view.
A dental X-ray is painless.  It is a type of photograph, however there is no “flash” like an ordinary camera.  We will explain to you how the information gained will help improve your diagnosis or treatment.
Because the risk from a dental X-ray to a developing baby is negligible, we will not ask questions about pregnancy.

  1. Our Standards.

We are Registered with the EPA and HIQA.  Our x-ray equipment is well maintained and regularly checked by appropriately qualified staff.  This ensures that the amount of radiation we use is kept as low as possible to get the pictures we need.
Our main concern is to ensure that when you have an X-ray , the benefits from making a diagnosis or providing the correct treatment, far outweigh the very low negligible risk involved with the X-ray itself.  We make sure that this is the case before you have an X-ray.

  1. About X-rays and Radiation in general.

We are all exposed to a small amount of natural background radiation every day of our lives. This radiation comes from our environment, the air we breathe, food we eat and even from outer space.
X-ray machines use a small amount of radiation to generate the “pictures” we need for your diagnosis and treatment and to monitor your progress.

  1. Putting it in perspective.

Each dental X-ray gives a small additional amount of radiation on top of natural background.  The X-ray you will have for diagnostic purposes carries a very low negligible risk.

  1. Consent.

Please feel free to ask the Dentist if you have any further questions or concerns.
You can refuse to have the X-ray taken if you feel you do not have sufficient information.
