We are a family-focused practice in the heart of Mount Oval Village, Rochestown, Cork.


Our ethos is ‘prevention is better than cure’ and the entire team have the aim of keeping your mouth and smile healthy for life. We do this by having a highly experienced team of dentists, hygienists, dental nurses and receptionists to care for you.


Our team is committed to providing the best quality dental treatment at affordable rates.​

The practice was established in 2002 by Dr Mary O’Dea, a specialist periodontist, which means you won’t have to be referred to another practice should you require treatment for gum disease or if it is necessary to have a dental implant placed.

We pride ourselves on our gentle, caring approach to ensure your visit is comfortable and pleasant, whilst providing an excellent standard of dental care in a safe environment.

Some of the treatments we offer include dental implants, gum and tissue treatments, crowns, bridges, veneers, tooth whitening, dentures, root canal therapy and routine restorations.

Each patient is provided with a full dental health check which includes a comprehensive personalized treatment plan (if any is necessary) outlining the treatment required and associated fees. This means you are in control of your dental health. You decide how and when the various aspects of your care are provided.


We are registered with the IDA which represents 80% of all registered dentists.


The practice is fully wheelchair and buggy accessible.
