Hygienists

Ms Martina O'Keeffe

Hygienist

​Having completed her world travels Martina decided to return to Dublin to study dental hygiene at TCD - graduating in 2000.

She has worked over the years with a number of clinicians who have trained both in Ireland and abroad and she feels this experience has resulted in her being a very competent hygienist. Her patients vary in age and nationality - and some she has been treating since she qualified all those years ago.

Martina takes a holistic approach to treatment and tailors all her treatment plans to the individual patient and their needs. She prides herself on being an excellent communicator with both her patients and colleagues. 

She particularly enjoys treating patients who are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

With her gentle demeanour and friendly approach Martina is capable of putting even the most nervous of patients at ease.

With an interest in art, sculpture and interior design Martina enjoys visiting various galleries – looking for inspiration and occasionally even renewing and upcycling old pieces of furniture.
