Riverside Dental Care

Maurice Leahy

I qualified as a dentist at U.C.C. in 1983. My first practice was in Kent, England; I returned to Cork in 1987, establishing a successful practice in Bridge Street. My years of experience (ever-increasing in number...) have shown me what can be achieved with technology and with the right personal approach.

So in 2006 I opened Riverside Dental Care in Ferney Road Mahon – a state-of-the-art, three-surgery practice within easy reach for most Cork city residents. Initial reaction has been fantastic, and the practice is going from strength to strength.
