New facility for Navan Road dentists

The third primary care and dental centre in the government’s €80 million infrastructure investment has been opened by Health Minister Leo Varadkar.

The minister cut the ribbon on the €8m Centric Health Navan Road Medical and Dental Practice and the HSE’s Navan Road Primary Care Centre, which will house a wide range of health services including dentists Dr Irene Lavin and Dr Ciaran O’Driscoll from the Navan Road dental practice.

The four-storey facility will also house three GP practices, two HSE primary care teams and two HSE community mental health teams.

Speaking at the official opening Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar, said: “The Navan Road primary care centre is a fantastic facility for local residents. A third centre in Dublin West is now under construction in Corduff and will open next year. These new primary care centres join over 40 locations already across the country opened since 2011, with another 30 underway. Of these 14 will be delivered by PPP and will receive funding from the European Investment Bank, the first time the Bank has invested in health care infrastructure in Ireland.”
