Our Dental Practice

Churchview Dental Practice was first established in Portlaoise in 1997 by Dr. Enda Whelan. As the practice has expanded we have been joined by Dr Grainne Fleming, Dr Angela Browne, Oral surgeon, Sharif Nayyar and specialist Periodontist Dr John Crotty. This has enabled us to provide a comprehensive range of treatments from general dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and wisdom tooth extraction to tooth whitening. Treatments can also be carried out under intravenous sedation.

Enda enjoys keeping up to date with new developments in dentistry, he has attended a working group on implants and regularly attends lectures both in Ireland and abroad. As such, Enda was selected as one of a limited number of vocational trainers throughout Ireland, mentoring new graduates in their first year in practice. Churchview has also been selected as a training practice for the Dental nursing course in Athlone Institute of Technology  and Marino College, Dublin. We have also passed the HSE inspection process that has been recently introduced.

In 2015 we joined Inspire dental group, this provides us with a network of dental teams throughout the country, who share their expertise and experience enabling us to ensure our whole dental team are at the forefront of new developments both in and out of the surgery.

Our modern Dental facility in Portlaoise was built to specification by Enda in 2006, after many successful years at Bridge Street Centre. The exterior of the building was designed in sympathy with the town’s Georgian heritage. However, once inside our doors you will find a modern purpose built clinic. There are three modern surgeries, surrounding a purpose built sterilisation unit, where all our instruments are cleaned and sterilised to the highest standards using vacuum sterilisation process. All our instruments are bagged, labelled, dated and logged to your chart so we have complete traceability. Our clinic has the latest digital OPG and intra oral x-ray facilities, this not only reduces the radiation for you, but is better for our environment, with no chemicals required for processing.

We have furnished our practice with our patients in mind, not only for comfort but also for the reassurance that we can offer you a thoroughly comprehensive and professional service, in a sensitive and tasteful surround. All facilities are now accessible by wheelchair and are on ground floor.

Our clinic is located in the busy town of Portlaoise. We are sited on the Dublin Road, opposite the red brick Catholic Church, St.Peter and Paul’s, a landmark of the town.Get directions here.
