Roisín Parahoo

Foundation Dentist (GDC no 290234)

Originally from a seaside town in Northern Ireland called Portstewart, I studied Dentistry at Queen’s University, Belfast. During my course, I took a year out and studied for a Masters in Global Health in Maastricht University. During this time, I lived in the Netherlands and India.

Being a foundation dentist means I am not under tight time constraints that other NHS dentists have in delivering high quality treatment to their patients. I will therefore be able to spend more time in dental disease prevention, education and patient anxiety management.

Education

  • Bachelor of Dental Surgery, QUB 2020
  • MSc in Global Health, Maastricht University

If you were to share one piece of dental advice, what would it be?
