BDS(QUB), MSc (Manchester) - GDC No. 69568
I am Gavin Maguire, I qualified from Queen’s University in Belfast in 1993. I took over the practice in September 2000 and have been kept busy with improvements ever since. I am married to Valerie, our Practice Manager, and we have two girls and a boy. We live in Mountnorris, halfway between Newry and Armagh although at the weekends I spend a lot of time in Portstewart normally either on (wakeboarding) or under (scuba diving) the water. I enjoy general dentistry but have an interest in cosmetic and aesthetic options including short term orthodontic treatment which is why I took a Master’s Degree in Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry from Manchester University in 2012.

I have been a qualified Dental Nurse since 1993 and the Practice Manager at Dromore Dental since 2000. I enjoy my work especially seeing the new techniques and equipment that have been developed to make dental treatment painless and easier for everyone. I have just completed some adult orthodontic treatment using the 6 Month Smile system and it has given me the straight teeth I have always wanted and I love the result. In my spare time I enjoy time with my family on the North Coast, walking our dog, going to the gym and making Wedding and Birthday Cakes.

I started Dromore Dental in Dec 2015. I qualified in 1996 as a dental nurse and complete Oral Health Educated in 97. I spent 2 years on working in Canada and Australia, working in different dental surgeries for more experience.
For a slight career change, I qualified as a Dental technician in 2004 and completed a first line management course in 2012. I continue to work in both career aspects of nurse/ technician and hope to continue with more courses in the future.
