I worked with Dr. Kathleen Walsh for many years as her dental nurse and I can’t recommend her enough. She is so gentle and caring, especially with children.

I highly recommend Dr Kathleen Walsh who is incredibly caring and knowledgeable, she definitely goes the extra mile to make you feel you’re getting the very best possible care.


Dr Kathleen Walsh was very friendly and listened to what I had to say. She explained every procedure before and as she worked… A virtually painless experience, I very highly recommend her.

My first time visit as my own dentist was away. I was most impressed with her customer service and manner. I was offered good advice and sample to improve my dental care. I felt she took good care and was very helpful.
