Welcome to Oriel OrthodonticsDundalk’s newest specialist orthodontic practice. Our aim is to provide the highest standard of orthodontic treatment using top quality materials in a relaxed but modern clinical environment.
Oriel Orthodontics has been founded by orthodontist Dr Dónal Macauley, who has worked in Dundalk since 2001 apart from a three year period spent undertaking specialist training at the Dublin Dental University Hospital. Dónal has worked at the HSE Regional Orthodontic Unit at the Louth County Hospital for the last five years.
Treatments provided will range from simple interceptive treatments sometimes needed in younger patients to comprehensive treatment for adolescent and adult patients. We use high quality materials from an industry leader and offer ceramic or tooth-coloured brackets as well as the standard metal brackets. Our younger patients can also enjoy a system which allows for a range of colours on their brace. We are also providers for the Invisalign™ clear aligner appliance which is best suited to patients with milder problems.
Appointments can be offered weekly and there is ample free on-street parking available.
On Your First Visit?
When you attend for your first appointment you will be met and assessed by your orthodontist. We have two types of assessment called early and full. An early assessment involves a clinical examination, an X-ray if needed and a discussion. These are carried out for younger patients who don’t have all their adult teeth and involves advising parents as to when treatment could ideally be started and what is likely to be involved.
A full assessment is carried out for adolescent and adult patients who are ready to start treatment. Any necessary X-rays are taken (usually one) along with clinical photographs. A full diagnosis will be made and treatment options discussed. Information on costs and methods of payment will be provided.
