Disability Friendly Dentistry

My passion lies in improving oral health services for people with disabilities in Ireland. As such, I aim to provide the very highest standard of care for my patients with disabilities. For me oral health is a right for all people.

We are all born with the right to health and the right to choice. The service I provide for my patients focuses on the abilities of each individual rather than the disability. I recognise the importance of all people in society working together to remove barriers that people with disabilities may face. My practice is largely dedicated to disabled and phobic dental patients. I lecture with dental care professionals regularly on disability awareness.

Types of disability 

I use a person centred approach to see people as just that: people. I apply the biopsychosocial model of disability that allows me and my team to see beyond the disability. See the links accross or click on the boxes below to see if what I offer can help you get the service you need.
