We want to change the  perception of dentistry by changing the way we work. We know dentistry can be an amazing thing that we can do for others. We believe dentistry has the power to change how people see themselves and can give confidence. We provide high-quality private dental health care and digital smile design. ConfiDental has been providing care to the people of Tipperary and North Cork since 2010, and we don’t plan to stop any time soon.

Along with our excellent team of nurses, receptionists and treatment co-coordinators, we have developed a modern practice offering the full range of general dental treatments. Our team are highly qualified and take special care of nervous patients. We are proud to be located in the center of Cahir. We support local businesses where possible. We continue to improve our treatments to minimise the environmental impact of dentistry.

We also offer dental implants and complex care for patients who need advanced dental work or dental rehabilitation.
