Combining state of art technology with traditional dentistry

Combining state of art technology with traditional dentistry

Founded in 1997, Anne’s Lane Dental is a well-established Dublin 2 city centre dental clinic, passionate about providing an exceptional standard of dental care for our patients. The heritage building was originally a stable and has a unique cottage ambience as a boutique dental clinic nestled between Grafton Street and Dawson Street, independently owned and operated by Dr Paul Hooi.

Our patient-centred approach focuses on cultivating trust within the patient-dentist relationship and taking the time to understand our patient needs.

We recognise and build on the excellent clinical direction of previous dentists at Anne’s Lane Dental, Dr Des Gallagher, Dr Michelle Brady and Dr Jennifer Dunne.

Dr. Paul Hooi

Principal Dentist
BDentSc (TCD)
Dip PCD (RCSI)
PhD (TCD)

Paul is an experienced general dentist who completed his dental training at the Dublin Dental University Hospital, Trinity College Dublin. His approach to dentistry is caring, conscientious and exacting. He is passionate about dentistry and understands that taking the time to identify the specific concerns of each patient allows their individual treatment goals to be achieved.

Prior to dentistry, Paul qualified as a mechanical engineer and gained his MSc with distinction in computer-aided engineering from Queen’s University, Belfast before working in the medical device industry developing novel closure technology for minimally invasive vascular surgery. He will be bringing a methodical mindset and extensive engineering experience in computer-aided design and rapid prototyping to cutting edge digital dentistry including 3D scanning, designing, milling and 3D printing of bespoke dental restorations.

His commitment to continuing professional development led him to complete his PhD in resin-strengthening of dental ceramic materials. His technical experience positively influences his approach to dentistry and Paul gets genuinely excited about providing veneers, crown and bridge, root canal treatments, implant crowns and removable orthodontic treatments.

Patients generally appreciate having the details of their proposed dental treatment explained and find his enthusiasm means they are well informed about the various treatment options available to enhance their smile. A commitment to lifelong learning is important to Paul and he enjoys regularly attending dental conferences both nationally and internationally. In addition, Paul has published and presented his own peer-reviewed original research to dentists and dental researchers here in Ireland and at international conferences. Giving back is important to him, he has taught dental students at Dublin Dental University Hospital and provided dental care with an Irish team at an orphanage in Belarus.

Paul recognises that every dentist also needs to be a patient sometimes, and understands the experience of the dental visit from the perspective of the nervous patient. He looks forward to welcoming you and placing you at ease with his friendly and caring nature.

There are few people who feel completely relaxed when visiting the dentist.

Some may feel a little anxious and frightened while others may be so afraid that they visit the dentist only when the pain in their teeth is severe. Fear of dentistry can turn into a vicious cycle as people avoid attending for routine check-ups thereby allowing dental problems develop to the point when they are in such unbearable pain that a visit to the dentist becomes essential, further heightening anxiety.

At Anne’s Lane Dental we understand what it is like to be a patient and will take the time to relate you and understand your needs. Our team is experienced in caring for nervous patients. We suggest an initial visit to get to know you, explore your concerns and identify your dental needs. We are happy to discuss treatment options from simply providing treatment in a calm, mindful and relaxed setting, to treatments with sedation if preferred.

Sedation is a technique that helps people who are fearful of dental treatment or who are undergoing more difficult dental procedures to relax while we guide them through their treatment.

Being sedated just enough to ensure you are give less attention to the treatment and more attention to your relaxation is like drifting off into a dream-like state. As you are completely at ease & comfortable during your appointment, it can be helpful to provide you with more treatment than usual if you wish, therefore reducing the number of visits needed to complete your course of treatment.
