“Find out how Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic can help you as a referring clinician
If you want your patients to be looked after by one of the most advanced practices in Ireland, Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic is the referral centre for you.
Our clinicians have at least 10 years’ experience as qualified dentists and postgraduate qualifications in their fields (including endodontics, periodontics, dental implants and restorative dentistry) and are supported by an experienced team of hygienists, dental nurses and a large patient care and administration team.
Our treatment plans are based on the most recent scientific research and are delivered using state-of-the art equipment. We have invested in the Sirona 3D CBCT Orthophos scanner, a Global G6 microscope, CEREC Crown in a Day and intraoral cameras.

Digital and business hub
This year,  Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic was awarded the  Best  Customer  Care Award, beating all other blue-chip businesses in County Meath. Our success was down to our investment in digital workflow, which marks our patient journey out from dental practices across the country. Going digital enabled us to remove  friction and pinch points from the patient journey and support the clinicians who refer to us.

Here are some of the ways the patient journey feels different at Boyne Dental & Implant Clinic:

  • Patient medical histories, clinical and GDPR consent forms and treatment plans are digitally presented, digitally signed and auto-saved to the patient record
  • Patients can watch testimonial videos of any treatment they are interested in, or attending for
  • Patients automatically receive an online

review invitation after treatment, enabling us to build an authentic public feedback forum that instils trust.

  • Our patient marketing system auto sends information relevant to the  patient journey based on their most recent appointment, eg, post-extraction care, missing tooth complications.
