New dental centre for Mallow

100-year-old building is replaced by new premises

The new dental services centre in Mallow was officially opened at the beginning of October, replacing the 100-year-old former premises at the O’Brien Street Health Centre.

The new centre, based in Market Square, will house both the HSE South’s dental services as well as being the headquarters for the North Cork Dental Services.

A total of 14 staff will be based at the new premises, which features five surgeries as opposed to four at the old site, including dentists, nurses, a hygienist and support staff.

Dr Patrick Quinn, Principal Dental Surgeon with the HSE, said: “The new premises will allow us to deliver dental services in line with current national best practice in infection prevention and control with our new modern decontamination and sterilisation facilities.”
