WELCOMING & PROFESSIONAL

ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

Our practice has been serving the people of Galway and surrounding counties for over 40 years. Dr. Fleetwood took over the practice in 2002 when we were based in our original location at 24 Eyre Square. Regardless of where we are located our purpose remains the same, we are here to serve our patients.

We understand that many of you are not too keen on coming to see the dentist. Our aim is for you to leave our office having felt welcome and having had a positive experience.


WE LOVE MAKING YOU SMILE

OUR HAPPY PATIENTS

Some of our patients have been kind enough to write some lovely words about us on Facebook and Google.
We appreciate each and every kind word that you say about us.

We genuinely enjoy helping people, through what can be a stressful experience. From a small filling, to a more complicated treatment plan, we are happy to help you through it.

WE’RE VERY FRIENDLY
