Report on World Federation of Orthodontists’ Breakfast May 1st 2016

Top 10 Dental Issues in 2016 General Election

Dr Stephen Murray from Swords Orthodontics summarises dental issues before the 2016 General Election

You might have a mouth, but do you have a voice?

Unless you are burrowed deep at home with some really good DVD box sets, it probably hasn’t escaped your attention that later this week we have a general election, with the opportunity to vote for new public representatives or return the existing ones, and so influence the make-up of the next government.

Swords Orthodontics is located on the first floor of the main street of a busy town in North Dublin, and so I can look out at the posters for various candidates (not all are smiling) that are attached to nearby lampposts. I am sure it's the same ...

Time Passing, Learning Still

My dad got our first colour TV in 1972 because the olympics were on that summer. I am old enough to vaguely remember it, but the people I work with aren't even old enough to remember Live Aid.
