About Us

Exemplary Orthodontics Creating beautiful smiles


With two well-positioned practices every patient has a choice as to where they receive specialist orthodontic treatment. The two West Cork practices are based in the bustling towns of Bandon and Clonakilty. These practices are modern and fully equipped with the latest technology and are located on the main streets with ample parking nearby for convenient accessibility.

Our trained and dedicated clinical and administrative staff support our ethos in all practices. The patient is quite literally put first. Our patients are seen on time on an appointment basis and reminders are sent before each visit for their convenience, to help in their busy lives.

We offer up-front payment plans, family discounts and incremental payment schemes, we support any health insurance discounts and of course the Med 2 20% discount for all patients/parent/relative paying tax in this country.

I have been working in Orthodontics for many years now and continue to feel excited every day about my job. There is tremendous job satisfaction when you transform an unattractive appearance or profile into a beautiful smile. I have seen people’s self esteem increase dramatically and that is why I love my job.

The first thing people notice is your smile and it is so important. I like to listen to the patients to get a feel for what they want, to tailor make their treatment in order to deliver outstanding results and meet expectations. We focus on child and adult care with a range of different options like removable, metal, clear, aesthetic and invisible braces. We should all value our smiles and look after them. They really are one of our greatest assets.
