Dr Angus Roche LDS RCSI MSc ULond
Following my initial education which amongst other benefits I developed a great interest in sport, it was the significant Medical and Dental of my family background that encouraged me to study Dentistry in the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland.

Working with some of the most highly respected practitioners in Ireland from 1974 , such as Colm O’Sullivan, Leo Heslin, Gerry McKenna, Aidan O’Reilly, Nick Mahon, Cormac Brady and PJ Byrne, has positively influenced the development and progression of my Practice. This has given me the opportunity to be directly and actively involved in the enormous changes and developments in Dentistry over the 50 years since graduation, such as the advent of composites, implants, sedation, new technology, and especially patient care, dealing with my own patients and those referred to me.
Being a Principal in practice for over 30 years has given me the opportunity of mentoring students during their training. I also had the privilege of mentoring amongst others my Practice Manager who has now moved on to a similar role in a multi-disciplinary Primary Care Centre, with the responsibility for overall organization and financial affairs. Thankfully I now benefit from her extensive knowledge in finance and taxation.
As opportunities continue to open up in Ireland, the need for advice guidance and mentoring is growing. Fifty years and more of experience working in Dentistry gives me a deep insight into the many mistakes and pitfalls in life. These have been many, financial, health and personal among them. That has given me experiences to use to advise, mentor and guide colleagues and others and assist them in developing a comfortable productive and more rewarding life, and environment to work in.
