Set-Up-a-Dental-Clinic-in-Ireland.jpgDental care in Ireland is regulated by a set of legal acts and the primary source in this sense is the Dentists Act 1985, enforced by the Dental Council of Ireland. Businessmen who want to open a company in Ireland or dentists who want to set up their own business in this country should know that, in order to practice in this sector, it is required to be registered with the Irish Register of Dentists, which is comprised of four branches (Register of Dentists, Register of Dental Specialists, Register Dental Hygienists, Register of Dental Nurses). 

Types of dental care services - presented by our Ireland company formation agents

A dental clinic set up in Ireland can provide a wide range of services, depending on the types of devices it has and the types of dental care specialists it hires. Our team of consultants in company formation in Ireland can advise on the main employment regulations applicable to dental care professionals; as a general rule, a dental clinic will provide the following: 
  • dental cleaning – a procedure that should be requested by a patient every six months, which has the purpose of preventing any tooth decay;
  • fillings – it is applicable for any tooth decay or tooth damage of any kind (silver fillings are no longer in use starting with 1st of July 2018 following European Union’s regulations);
  • teeth whitening – a cosmetic procedure that aims at whitening teeth, as their natural white color can be affected by various foods and drinks;
  • dental examination – a basic dental procedure, through which the dentist verifies the general state of health of a patient’s teeth.

Information regarding the dental care sector in Ireland  

Ireland has more than 2,000 dentists registered in the Registry of Dentists, most of whom are working in the private sector, employed as general dental practitioners; our team of Ireland company formation agents can provide in-depth information on how to hire local or foreign dentists in this country. 
It is necessary to know that dentists have the obligation to prevent any infections that can be transmitted from a patient to another, by employing specific procedures (decontamination, disinfection, sterilization) of all the medical tools. Any failure regarding this aspect can lead to proceedings held with the Fitness to Practice Committee of the Dental Council. Investors are invited to contact our team of agents in company formation in Ireland for more details regarding this subject.
