Specialist Oral Surgeon Dr Marie O'Neill joins Swords Orthodontics

Dr Marie O'Neill joins Swords Orthodontics as our new specialist oral surgeon

This was a great development for the practice, and for the local area in general - we expanded our specialist dental services by adding an oral surgeon to our team here.

Dr Marie O'Neill qualified with an Honours degree in Dentistry, and then consolidated her enthusiasm for oral surgery by completing the specialist training programme in Trinity College Dublin. She is now on the Dental Council's relatively exclusive list (they call it "The Register") of specialist oral surgeons.

An oral surgeon is a dentist that has completed ...

Team Swords Ortho at Kilkenny for IDA conference

Team Swords Orthodontics at the 2014 Irish Dental Association annual conference in Kilkenny

In late May, the clinical team at Swords Orthodontics (that’s Brenda, Michelle and Courtney) headed to Kilkenny’s Lyrath Estate for the Irish Dental Association’s 2014 National Conference. There were updates on all sorts of things to do with dentistry, but particularly from an Irish perspective – this is important for keeping up with changes in the laws and regulations governing dentistry. There were also special talks from the UK’s foremost forensic dentist (who has the gruesome job of identifying bodies from their dental records) and ...

Courtlough Adventure Team Building

Swords Orthodontics organised an inter-practice team building event with members from 4 practices taking part. There was a bit of archery and a lot of gravity-defying as we negotiated the high wire adventure course, with challenges of balance and nerve as we zip wired and jumped into the unknown.

Our new technician Bogdan joins Swords Orthodontics!

Also in the middle of the year, our long serving orthodontic technician Brian left to set up his own business so the hunt was on to find a suitable person to run our on-site ortho laboratory. The great advantage for our patients is that with an on-site lab is that we can provide retainers, repairs and adjustments in a very short time. This is particularly helpful if we want to complete someone’s treatment and take their braces off and then fit retainers a few hours later so there’s less chance of teeth moving and less disruption to our patients (and their parents) ...
