All new patients are always welcome here at Navan Dental. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive range of high quality general and cosmetic dental care in a relaxed and professional environment with state-of-the-art equipment. We are constantly striving to maintain our high standards and meet our patients’ expectations.
At your first visit, our team will take time to listen to your needs and to discuss the treatment options which suit you. We would kindly ask that you plan to arrive at our clinic a few minutes prior to your appointed time so that we may register your details onto our computer system, and complete any necessary paperwork.
Navan Dental is conveniently located at 28 Trimgate Street, Navan. This is opposite Geoghegan’s and above Paddy Powers Bookmakers on Navan’s main street. The practice is open Monday to Saturday, and offers late evening appointments until 7.00pm on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, meaning that we can accommodate your busy schedule.
There is parking nearby at the car – park on the Fairgreen behind the Catholic Church, on Kennedy Road opposite the Shopping Centre or at Brews Hill. The practice also offers wheel chair access, with a lift being available.
If you one of the many patients who are travelling from Dublin by car to visit us, we estimate the journey time to be approximately 35 minutes from the city centre via the M3 motorway.
Please see our map in our “Contact Us” section for further details on how to find us.
