What Our Patients Think of Us
High Quality Care for all New Patients
“I recently got implants at Portobello. I am very satisfied with the results and I have confidence that if any problems do arise, that they will be dealt with. I have been going to Portobello for about nine years. I was a nervous enough patient starting out and I have referred a few nervous toothache sufferers there over the years and they have all been very satisfied. In relation to prices for implant work, I checked the prices out and it was fairly competitive with what it would have cost me in Northern Ireland and with travel and so forth I don’t think I could have gotten it done for much less abroad when everything is considered. It was expensive, but I look at it as a long term investment.”
“I was nervous replacing an old crown, two veneers and having a third veneer fitted to my four front teeth. Dr Edward Madeley, went to considerable trouble to explain all the necessary procedures, which would ensure the best smile possible. He has endless patience and good-humouredly indulged me when I produced a photoshopped print of my expectations. While I desired whiter than white teeth, I knew I would have to take my older teeth into consideration. With considerable charm and professional skill, Dr Madeley directed me towards the choice that would achieve the best result. I am delighted with my new smile and would encourage anybody looking for top quality dentistry, to visit Dr Madeley, you will not be disappointed.
I am so glad I found the Portobello Dental Clinic and have no hesitation in recommending them to my family and friends. Everyone at the Portobello clinic is professional and friendly and the follow-up phone call after treatment, to inquire how I was feeling was much appreciated.
Many thanks to all of you”
“I had my two front teeth veneered in December 2011 by Helen Walsh. I was having veneers replaced – the old ones, which were done at a different clinic, had been quite bulky and Helen assured me that the new veneers would be much more slimline. I was really happy with the result – they were indeed more slimline and looked much more natural than my previous veneers. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. On one occasion my temporary veneers became loose and I was told to come in immediately to have them re-adhered. I would recommend the Portobello Dental Clinic because I felt the price was reasonable, the service was excellent and the end result looked great.
“I’d also recommend Portobello Dental on the SCR.
I have quite a bad phobia of the dentist and came across them simply by phoning lots n lots of names in the Golden Pages. I still get stressed out attending the dentist, but the ones in Portobello have an excellent manner and it helps calm me down a lot.”
“Have just returned back to looking after my teeth after 20 years.
Had a dentist (Portobello Clinic – top job!) and now got an appointment with hygenist next. hat does the hygenist do? Is it just cleaning/advising how to clean teeth and gums?”
“I’ve always been pretty scared of the dentist, and have been put off by bad experiences and botch jobs in the past. I went to see one in town the other day and was really impressed. His name is Nicholas Beirne, and the practice is Portobello Dental Clinic on South Circular Road.
The staff were really friendly and the waiting room was ok, although the seats weren’t great – some of the most uncomfortable I ever sat on. Anyway, when I went in for the dreaded consultation I don’t mind admitting that my knees were like jelly. Normally I was used to the dentist having a bit of a poke, but this guy spent ages looking around, checked everything, took x-rays, asked me what I did and didn’t like, it was all really new to me. He was really nice and didn’t make me feel bad for having crappy teeth. At the end, I got a printed estimate which was all really clear.
Since then I’ve had 2 visits for treatment and it worked out great– he even showed me pictures of my old silver fillings and the new white ones he had put in – it looks pretty good to me! The most important thing though – it DIDN’T hurt and my faith is restored!”
“Helen Walsh in Portobello, she’s very good.. 01 4542022”
“IMO the needle is the only sore part of a filling… However, some dentists have a technique of putting in the needle without you feeling it.. they pull your cheek a certain way when doing it… The dentist I go to in Portobello is great. Helen Walsh is her name.. Always makes me feel at ease too… I do hate the drilling though, and although it has never happened and probably never will, I’m always terrified the drill will slip Oh and don’t ever touch anything metal like a fork of a new filling… Take it from me.. You will hit the roof”
“I can happily recommend the Portobello Dental Clinic”
I went to see Nick there and I explained to him that I can be nervous when in the dentist chair and can be a big baby when it comes to oral surgery. He was really reassuring and comforting. Anything he did he told me exactly what he was doing beforehand and what the reasons were. I have to go back in the new year to get more work done and I will be confident that i will be comfortable.”
“I just put a recommendation on another thread for Nicholas Beirne, also Portobello Clinic, there are just the two of them there so looks like you can’t go wrong.”
“I went to Portobello Clinic today, my first time at dentists in a long time and I was fairly nervous… I would definitely recommend them, I had Dr Nicholas Beirne, a very nice guy and very good also.”
“That sounds really awful! When you take responsibility for your health the last thing you should get is a lecture or be made to feel depressed.

I also don’t know too much about how to claim things back on tax etc. but the receptionist was very helpful with this too.”
