Nollaig O Callaghan BA BDentSc (Hons)

Associate Dental Surgeon GDC No. 72663 (Female)

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday am & Friday

After graduating from Trinity College Dublin in 1996 with honours I completed vocational training in Falkirk associated with the University of Glasgow, then joining the practice in March 1998. Over my years in Rutherglen, I have built long lasting relationships with large numbers of patients and their families, providing high-quality dental treatment in a friendly relaxed manner.

I enjoy all aspects of general dental practice, and I am enthusiastic in motivating patients of all ages in helping them to improve and maintain excellent oral health. The challenge of restoring a patient to full dental health, especially those who may not have attended the dentist in a long time and may have lost confidence as a result, is something I find very rewarding.  I believe a nice smile with healthy teeth & gums is so important for self-belief and overall health and well-being.I am committed to continuing professional development and regularly attend postgraduate dental courses to keep abreast with current trends, thinking and techniques in dentistry
