Kieran McCarthy MLA - member of the Assembly Health Committee - receives a petition from the team at Mullan Gallagher Dental Group, Downpatrick. Mr McCarthy brought the petition, signed by some 1,700 of our patients who are concerned by proposed cuts to NHS dentistry, to the Northern Ireland Assembly, describing the cuts as potentially ´devastating´.
Ciara Gallagher, partner at Mullan Gallagher Dental Group, said that a number of the proposals are “wholly unacceptable”:
“Our practice’s success is based on excellence, ethics, economy and efficiency. These cuts are in direct contravention of the NHS core values of ´meeting the needs of everyone´ and treatment being ‘based on clinical need, not ability to pay´. For this reason our team has been talking to patients about their concerns, and my colleagues and I have met with a range of local MLAs and members of the Assembly Health Committee to try to make the Department of Health sit up and take notice."
With state-of-the-art surroundings and a warm, friendly, professional service, we at Mullan Gallagher Dental Group pride ourselves on exceeding your expectations.
Our award-winning team of professionals is committed to providing comprehensive, expert dental care for the whole family in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
We know that there’s nothing like a beautiful smile to boost confidence, so we invite new patients to avail of our state-of-the-art cosmetic makeovers, as well as NHS dentistry.
We are very flexible in our approach to the care we provide. While we enjoy and excel at highly sophisticated private dentistry, we understand that in these challenging times, this is not within everyone’s reach. It is for this reason that we continue to provide excellent NHS care to all who request it.
We have practised dentistry on our current site for more than thirty years, and are now proud to be treating the second generation of patients from the same families.
Many who have emigrated factor in a visit to us as part of their trip home and an increasing number are flying in specifically for treatment.
With such loyalty it is easy to see that ours is no ordinary practice.
Full time associate position available at Mullan Gallagher Dental Group from August 2013
