Jamie O Dougherty
Jamie O DoughertyDentist (B.D.S)
I qualified with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree from Cork University Dental School and Hospital in 2016. I was awarded the ‘College Scholar’ title based on exam performance.

I have three years of clinical experience in North Dublin practicing general dentistry for private and GMS scheme patients. From my previous experience I developed an interest in removable prosthodontics (dentures), helping put a smile on people’s faces in addition to restoring the smile. I always bring a calm demeanor to the clinic which tends to rub off on my patients and I’m a very good listener. Following Covid I’m keen to undertake clinical specialization.

My biggest passion outside of work is travel and networking. I love to explore different places and cultures and always return home a little wiser. I’ve been interested in music from a young age and enjoy amateur performance on sax or piano.

Laura Beschiu
Laura BeschiuSpecialist Orthodontist
I am a specialist orthodontist, having qualified from the Faculty of Dentistry in Timisoara, Romania as a dentist in 2005 and have completed my specialist training in Orthodontics in 2008. Since then, I have worked in private practices across Europe.

My main interest in Dentistry has always been Orthodontics, as this is a specialty that has a huge impact not only on people’s oral health, but also on their self perception and social life. Because Orthodontics doesn’t only change teeth, it changes faces.

My main focus are children and teens where their growth potential, if well managed, can lead to favorable results but at the same time, adult cases can be equally challenging and satisfying.

Achieving great results requires hard work, skills and determination and I am determined to continue to learn and improve myself through using innovative techniques and appliances and through continuous professional development courses that I regularly attend.

On a personal level, I like music, reading, travelling and am very happy to live close to the sea.
