Donal transformed my smile. I had always been self conscious about my smile as the cap on my front tooth did not match the other tooth.

I would recommend Donal and the practice to anyone.

So pleased with the practice. Donal is amazing, so kind and great with the kids he really put you at ease.

- Alison

You are without doubt the best dentist practice I have ever been to – and I’ve had a few. Thank you for all your work, wisdom and outstanding service.

The relaxing, re-assuring voice of Jo, and the occasional hand on the shoulder also helped control the panic that may have been present.   – Mr D

Donal is the best dentist I have ever encountered, and a very nice man with it too!
