About Us

Family Dental Practice was established in July 2011. Since then, the practice has grown into a thriving business providing high quality dentistry to the people of Mallow and surrounding areas at an affordable price.

We provide treatment in a comfortable environment and we are committed to giving our patients the tools they need to achieve healthy teeth and gums.

Family Dental Practice is a family-friendly practice and we place a strong emphasis on preventive care for children’s teeth. Our goal is to minimise any necessary treatment in children and give them the knowledge to understand how to protect their teeth throughout their lives.

Dr. Ciara O’ Sullivan opened the practice with family dentistry in mind, providing excellent care to all patients from infants to the elderly.
