About Us

Welcome to Gleeson Dental Clinic

Gleeson Dental is a long established family run practice set up by Dr. Jim Gleeson. Having graduated from University College Cork in 1972, Jim spent a period of time working in Kent before returning to his home town of Killarney. In 1978 he established Gleeson dental and continued to work there until his retirement. Having been extensively refurbished, the clinic is now run by his two daughters, Susan and Katie.

  • Top class professional dental service for private patients
  • Medical card holders
  • Patients with PRSI entitlements

 

Gleeson Dental is a family-friendly practice that welcomes new and existing patients of all ages. Your oral care is our priority as we believe that a healthy mouth leads to a happy smile and has enormous benefits for our overall wellbeing and health. Increased life expectancy means that proper dental care for the older patient is now a priority to maintain a healthy and functional dentition.

We are also pleased to be a part of the Clearbraces group through which we provide Invisalign technology to our patients. Clearbraces.ie is Ireland’s largest provider of Invisalign technology.  Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is a virtually invisible method of straightening your teeth. This uses transparent removable aligners, specifically moulded to fit your teeth, to achieve this.

The atmosphere in Gleeson Dental is designed to create an environment in which patients feel at ease and know that their wishes and concerns are sensitively addressed. A treatment plan individually tailored to each case is drawn up for optimal results.
