About Us

Our practice has been providing excellence in dental care since 1964. The practice was established by Dr TF Maguire, and has been run by Dr John McCann since January 2003. In 2010 we moved to our current purpose built state of the art premises in Darling Street.

Our ethos has always been to provide excellence in terms of treatment, and just as importantly, the care of our patients.

We aim to care for the person and not just treat the teeth, as we fully understand that a trip to the dentist can be a stressful and nervy time for anyone.

This is reflected in the standard of the facilities we provide for our patients, as well as our dedication to all of our patients and their needs. The practice is decorated in soothing colours with beautiful artwork displayed on the walls. Comfortable seating and relaxing music induce a calming ambiance. The practice also provides free WiFi access for our patients so you can keep in touch with all of the day’s current events, send emails or simply check your Facebook for new messages or invites.
