About me

Caoimhin Mac Giolla Phadraig Dentist Dublin Ireland

My name is Kev  (or Caoimhin as  Gaeilge). I  am a Dublin native and the first person trained to Specialist level in the emerging specialty of Special Care Dentistry in Ireland. I graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2002. Since then I worked in private practice in in the UK, New Zealand and Ireland. I also worked in the HSE as a dental surgeon, the University of Otago as a full time tutor and the Dublin Dental Hospital as a Senior House Officer. Along the way, I even found the time to set up clinics in rural Uganda. See here for details on this exciting adventure. In 2007, I commenced three year full time specialist training in Special Care Dentistry in the Dublin Dental Hospital where I am now employed as a specialist and an Assistant Professor in Trinity College Dublin. I also treat patients privately in the Hermitage Medical Clinic, Lucan Dublin. Professional Qualifications
