My Story

Although I am originally from Belfast I have a strong association with Ardara and the surrounding region. My parents are both artists and travelled widely. Ardara was one of the areas where they came to both before and after I was born.


My grandfather built a house in Maghera, just outside the town of Ardara, in 1968 and I spent much of my childhood there. Having travelled extensively myself I returned at least once every year to Donegal.

Due to this I know personally many of the people who live in the community. I have always been a fly fisherman and have always been active in the local Salmon angling club promoting care of the local river and the preservation of fish stocks. To this end I have met many locals who are also involved in this and am delighted to now sponsor the club.

In the development of the practice I employed only local tradesmen and craftsmen and my architect is from just outside Ardara.

Travel packages for our patients again incorporate local hotels and restaurants and we have a very close relationship with the Ardara Health Centre and local medical practitioners to provide the community with an excellent overall healthcare service.

Cosmetic Dentistry has always been my main focus and interest.

When In lived and worked in the UK I attended many postgraduate courses on dental aesthetics however my time spent living and working in the USA lead to a hugely greater understanding and appreciation of the depth and multidisciplinary aspect of cosmetic dentistry. I spent 2 years learning through working in possibly the best multidisciplinary practice in the world in Atlanta, Georgia and visiting other ground breaking dental offices around America to observe their unique approaches to the provision of cosmetic services to their patients. This was an exciting time for me and allowed me to develop my approach to aesthetics and hence be able to provide a unique form of dental cosmetic treatment developed from my experience.

I continue to be in contact with world leading authorities on cosmetic dentistry and continue to learn and forward my understanding and abilities.

Outside dentistry I have many interests. I have flown and am licensed for gliders and light aircraft, have raced in the Irish single seater Formula Europa series and try to continue with my interest in art by painting and sketching. I also build and play acoustic guitars. In my younger years I played rugby and tennis and my interest continues in these sports.

Paragliding is another area of interest for me although this is a future project!

A Destination
Practice

Our surgery is designed as a destination practice. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of cosmetic dentistry to patients from all over Ireland with our experience gleaned from working in some of the most respected cosmetic dental practices in the world. Our approach and techniques in aesthetic dentistry are completely unique and this is reflected in the architectural and interior design of our practice.


Ultra
Modern

The ultra-modern clean and organic lines remove the severity of design so often found in healthcare practices. These are accentuated by LED highlighting throughout the building, the use of glass to give an overall impression of space and maximise the use of natural light from the south facing premises.


Patient
Benefits

A state of the art dental surgery must be focused on patient service. This has to be evident throughout the practice from patient entrance to exit. Patient comfort, care, treatment and education have to take priority. The investment in a fully digital practice surpasses all patient expectations. Imagery is central to both patient relaxation and education.

We have gone beyond simple television displays and offer patients internet access, their choice of viewing via terrestrial and digital channels, digital radio and Netflix both before and during treatment. This leads to a relaxed patient, enjoyable treatment visits.


Patient
Experience

Every aspect of the technology is carefully assessed before investment. It must help the practice run efficiently, enhance our patients’ experience of their practice visit, assure excellence in dental treatment and be aesthetically suitable for the design of the practice.
