Meet The Team
Dr Kevin qualified as a dentist in 1991 from QUB (GDC registration 67263) and has worked in general practice ever since. He also did part-time teaching back at the School of Dentistry.
The best thing about my job is – Getting to know my patients over the years and learning from their wisdom. Also I love the satisfaction of knowing you have done a great job for a patient and both you and they are happy. Having good banter with my colleagues.
If I wasn't a dentist – I could happily live as a pilot, a postman or a dancer. In my spare time I would play guitar in a rock band giving concerts for charity.
When I am not helping fix teeth in Hillsborough Dental - I am enjoying growing old disgracefully with friends, watching movies with my family, growing vegetables and playing and collecting guitars.
