Excellence, Compassion, Experience…
Whilst catering for those looking to improve their smile through cosmetic enhancements, we also place a strong emphasis on the health of the oral cavity through prevention and lifestyle changes. Moreover, we strive to care for those patients in pain and manage acute dental disease promptly and gently.
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.
Would go and see Dr Kathleen Walsh and make recommendation to everyone I know without any thought.
By far the best dentist I have ever had – An absolute delight!
Very impressive lady. Took her time and explained the procedures very well. Made me feel very comfortable.
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.
I really thought the service was great, no pain and tooth fixed!
Great dentist – explained everything well
