Rathdrum Dental is owned by myself James Turner

Initially opened as a part-time practice in November 2005, it now operates 6 days per week offering dental treatments to the general public from the age of 2 all the way up to 102.

Having completed the Leaving Certificate as a mature student in 1996, I studied Dentistry in Trinity College Dublin and The Dublin Dental Hospital and graduated 5 years later with the class of 2001.

I spent a year in south west England in a fantastic practice gaining valuable experience in everyday dentistry. I returned to Ireland in 2002 and established from scratch the now busy and well known Baltinglass Dental. Having sold that business in June 2012 I concentrate solely on Rathdrum Dental and now operate from home full-time

In order to update and up-skill I have travelled to America, England, Africa and not to mention all over Ireland on many occasions to attend courses in all aspects of dentistry including implants, root canal treatments and cosmetic dentistry.

I do not consider dentistry as work, it is my hobby and as I am fortunate enough now to be able to practice my hobby from home I am in a position to offer early or late weekday or weekend appointments.

I believe in the patient being fully involved and informed about their dental needs and any proposed treatments. In my practice your treatment will be carried out gently, safely and professionally in a relaxed environment.

From time to time we have visiting dental students and school students who wish to observe the day to day goings on in a busy dental practice and we love to help out where we can.
