About Dublin Orthodontists
Dr Claire O’Sullivan is from Glasgow and was trained as a Dentist in Glasgow University, after a few years working as a house officer in other dental schools in the UK and Ireland she decided to specialise in Orthodontics, Claire returned to Glasgow to carry out her postgraduate education in Orthodontics and qualified in 2003 with her degree in Orthodontics allowing her to become a registered specialist Orthodontist with the Irish Dental Council. Since then she has worked in the HSE as an Orthodontist and in private practice. Working in the HSE gave Dr O’Sullivan a wealth of experience. The patients that are accepted in the HSE tend to be more severe cases and this left her with the ability to treat any orthodontic case.
Dr O’Sullivan has a keen interest in functional appliances which are braces that are used on young children whilst they are still growing. These braces improve the attractiveness and balance of the face, for this reason, Claire likes to see children from age 9 years upwards as recommended by the American Association of Orthodontics. Dr O’Sullivan decided to move solely into in private practice after working with the HSE for 10 years she left to dedicate herself to a private practice she started in the dental practice D11 in 2007. She has been in the College Gate Clinic since 2013 and has enjoyed building her private practice which is built mainly on word of mouth by happy patients. Claire works closely her Orthodontic Therapist Sarah who she has trained in conjunction with Trinity Dental School. She is dedicated to her patients and practice and looks forward to meeting you and your child to start your orthodontic journey.
