Meet our team
Dr. Sarah McMorrow B.D.S., D.Clin.Dent.
I graduated from The Dental School in Newcastle upon Tyne, England and spent a further few years working in a busy NHS practice in the UK. When I returned to Ireland I completed the Diploma in Clinical Dentistry in Trinity College. I opened Loughrea Dental Practice in 2011.
I was delighted and humbled to be awarded Sensodyne Sensitive Dentist of the year in 2011.
I enjoy my job immensely and especially enjoy putting patients at their ease and making their visit to the dentist as pleasant as possible.
I take great pride in my work and constantly strive to keep up to date with new developments and techniques so that I can continue to provide my patients with the best quality dentistry.

For the following 2 years Ria worked in orthodontics and general dentistry, where she developed a keen interest in periodontology. She then returned to study in University College Cork and graduated with honours as a Dental Hygienist in 2014.
Ria is very gentle and takes great pride in helping even the most anxious patients achieve a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
