Opened in 1980 by Kenneth Hall, Bandon Dental is Bandon’s longest established dental practice. With a cigarette smoke-filled reception and only one surgery in the 80’s and 90’s, it was purchased in 1998 by Barry O’Driscoill who built two more surgeries and introduced a Dental Hygienist.
Today the building is going through its third renovation, introducing a bright open plan reception area and a renovation of all three surgeries. Five Dentists currently work in Bandon Dental as well as two Dental Hygienists and 7 Dental Assistants and no, they can no longer smoke in reception.
A lot has changed since 1980 and there is a lot more to come.
