I have never been the bravest patient [not even close, truth be told]. So when I first arrived in Dr Eithne McKenna’s surgery I was as nervous as a kitten. And now, a few visits later, I behave just like any normal cat, practically falling asleep on the chair. Eithne is calm, kind, considerate and understanding, so if you are of a nervous disposition, I cannot recommend this practice highly enough. She is also a perfectionist. I had to get a crown and as I sat having it fitted she looked at the crown in her hand as a jeweller would look at a wonderful piece of jewellery they just crafted. It started a conversation about precision and attention to detail in which she told that she works with one crown maker because ‘he knows exactly what I want. You don’t have to be a dentist to know, that’s exactly what you want in your dentist.
