• Meet The Team

    Meet our team of professionally trained staff here. We want to be your family's dental home.


    At Mullingar Dental Centre we believe it's important that all members of your family are cared for to a high standard, whatever their age. Your children need to have regular preventive care to enable them to grow up with disease free mouths, and to allow them to keep their teeth for life.


    We encourage parents to bring their children in as soon as their first tooth appears. We're always here to offer advice regarding your child’s oral health and we often post tips on our Facebook page which you can follow here. By involving parents in prevention, we can fight against dental disease more effectively. Toys and books are available in reception for younger children.

    We promise you a friendly welcome to each visit. We know it can be hard to pluck up the courage to call the dentist, especially if you haven't been in years. When you call us, you’ll hear a sympathetic and friendly voice. And when you come in, we’ll do everything to make you feel relaxed and at home. Many patients tell us they worry about visiting the dentist. That's why we explain exactly what we do before, during and after each treatment.
