Dr. Alastair Woods

Principal Dentist

B.A., B.Dent.Sc

I qualified from Trinity College, Dublin in 2004. I have a special interest in oral rehabilitation and have been working with dental implants for 12 years. I went directly into private practice and spent over 8 years in a large clinic in Eyre Square in Galway before moving back to Dublin with my wife, Dr. Noelle McCourt, to open our own clinic in Deansgrange. We operate state-of- the-art equipment in our bright and modern practice.

I’m Dad to 3 children, a little girl and twin boys. When they’re not taking all my time, I like to do some long distance running and occasional hiking.

Dr. Noelle McCourt

Principal Dentist

I qualifed from Trinity College in 2004 with a honours degree. Following my graduation I worked in private practice in Dublin before moving to the United Kingdom where I worked ina busy mixed private and NHS practice in Surrey near London. I returned to Dublin 2007 to work in private practice in Stillorgan. Over the following year i completed a postgraduate course in Restorative Dentistry in Manchester. Having spent my childhood in the area, growing up on Rochestwon Avenue and attending Holy Child School in Killiney, I was delighted to returnt ot he locality in 2014 to open up Deansgrange Dental Clinic with Alastair. I love to get out for a run or a long mountain hike when I get the chance. Spending time in the kitchen working on my cooking and baking skills is also a passion of mine.

Dr. Jack Coffey

Dentist

I graduated from University College Cork in 2014, where I won an award in endodontics as an undergraduate. I am a member of the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, having gained my MFDS qualification in 2016. After graduating I continued my keen interest in endodontics and I am currently studying for a Masters degree from King's College London.

Originally from Killarney in Co. Kerry, I worked in private practice in Kilkenny for 3 years before joining Deansgrange Dental Clinic in 2017. I felt that it was a great opportunity to broaden my scope of dental practice in a great hi-tech clinic. The atmosphere and strong team ethic at Deansgrange Dental Clinic makes it a great place to practice.

In my spare time i enjoy cycling, running, golf and walking my two dogs. I am currently struggling to maintain a handicap of 6. I have recently suffered through a half marathon in Connemara, and I am looking forward to the Ring of Kerry cycle this year.

Rebecca Hinds

Dental Hygienist

I began my dental carer initially training to be a dental nurse. I studied in Trinity college Dublin and qualified in 2005. While working as a dental nurse I became particularly interested in preventive dentistry and wanted to have more of a hands on role within the dental team. I decided to return to study. I trained as Dental Hygienist in University College Cork, and graduated with honours in 2008. Come September this year I will be returning to study Oral heath promotion as a long distance learning programme.

I joined the Deansgrange Dental Clinic in May 2017 with almost twelve years experience under my belt. I feel right at home here in Deansgrange Dental Clinic. I enjoy being part of a genuine and caring team. The team here at Deansgrange shares my approach to dentistry, in that our main focus is our patients well-being, and providing individualised treatment to the highest standards to suit each of our patients needs.

As a Dental Hygienist I enjoy building personal relationships with my patients that are centred around educating and motivating them towards an optimum state of oral health. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing results in my patients as their oral health improves.

The environment in Deansgrange dental clinic was just what I was looking for. I enjoy our morning meetings and being part of this exceptional team. It is safe to say I have made friends for life here!
