About Frederick Dental

Located in Drogheda, we offer a free orthodontic assessment where we discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Each individual patient receives personalized treatment with respect to their choices and dignity. All patients are involved in their care plans through discussion, transparency and shared decision-making prior to actual treatment.

If you have a specialist requirement (e.g. a complex case, a case requiring surgery) we will be happy to refer you to an Orthodontic specialist in an area that is convenient to you. Patient feedback, by email, telephone or other means is valued for the development of our team and service.
