Dental implants


Root canal treatment


Implants are a permanent and natural looking solution to replace missing teeth.

Also known as endodontics, this procedure treats infection at the tip of the tooth root.

Gum disease treatment
Full dentures



The treatment of advanced gum disease. Also known as periodontics.

Dentures are removable false teeth which fit over the gums to replace missing teeth.


Your dedication and care, combined with your talent and expertise have taken my pain away and given me back my smile.

I recently had to undergo extensive treatment, including dental implants and root canal treatment. This was expertly and caringly carried out by Dr Gahan and his team. I was a nervous patient and his confident and calm manner put me at ease. I am very pleased with the outcome of my treatment and wholeheartedly recommend Dr Gahan who treated me with the utmost kindness and professionalism at all times.

I have worked closely with Matthew for three years. He has mentored me with larger multidisciplinary cases and implants. He is a multidisciplinary specialist and his work is of the highest order, with an acute sense of perfection and attention to detail. Observing him and the quality of his clinical work has helped me set  new personal standards to aim for.
