BDS (QUB), MSc (U. Glas)
GDC No. 79684
Dermot qualified from QUB in 2001 and, after several years working north and south of the border, moved to Edinburgh to work in a private practice. He became interested in periodontics (disease and treatment of the supporting structures of teeth) and in 2011 was awarded an MSc (honours) specialising in this subject at Glasgow Dental Hospital. While there he lectured in periodontal disease and worked in the consultant clinic of the Glasgow restorative department.
After liasing closely with Scottish immunologists he published work on the role that bacteria and the immune response play in the pathogenesis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. This academic grounding enables Dermot to focus on the treatment of tooth infections (endodontics) and gum infections (periodontics) as well as providing novel facial rejuvenation treatments based on harnessing the healing mechanisms of the human body.
Dermot is interested in advanced aesthetics and has attended various detailed courses covering many restorative techniques including the placement and restoration of dental implants, dermal fillers, and PRGF-Endoret.Joe Mc Enhill

This was awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons in England and is considered to be the gold standard.
Joe also has travelled the world in order to learn new techniques including many trips to Germany, Spain and England. He spent a week studying in Brazil under one of the world's foremost authorities in cosmetic dentistry. This encompasses not only teeth, but takes into consideration gums, lips and facial harmony; all of which amounts to beautiful symmetrical and harmonious results. Joe is an active member of the Irish Association of Aesthetic Dentistry and is frequently travelling to various conferences around the world. As recognition of the high standard of Joe's treatment he was awarded the Best Young Dentist in Northern Ireland 2011.
Joe is not one to sit still and is always looking to learn the latest techniques. Just as he is about to complete a one year course in restorative dentistry he will begin another course in advanced occlusion (the science of how the teeth bite together); for many this is the cornerstone of predictable long lasting dentistry. Following this he will attend a course on the digital design of smiles; after all, long lasting functional teeth may as well be beautiful too!Trudi Fawcett
