Eimear is leading the way for women in dentistry.

She was also the first female dentist in the UK to gain her implant diploma from The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh. 

Learn how Eimear O'Connell is helping change patients lives

There are only a few female implant dentists in the UK and even fewer as successful as Eimear, which means she is well known and well respected by her peers. She is a warm and reassuring dentist who builds excellent, long-term relationships with her patients. 

Eimear received her dental degree from the University of Edinburgh and she has run her own private dental practice in Edinburgh since 1996. 

She received her MFGDP and FFGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons London and her Diploma of Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. She is currently the committee member for Scotland. 

In 2014 Eimear won a UK business award from Software of Excellence as well as winning Best Overall Practice in Scotland. In 2015 her practice won Best Patient Care award. Eimear is an international speaker and opinion leader for Dentsply Sirona and she is especially interested in digital dentistry. She has been using Cerec technology since 2008 and believes the increased success of her practice has much to do with the implementation of digital dentistry.

Outside of dentistry, Eimear coaches and plays hockey and she loves sailing and skiing. Eimear has 3 daughters, which is why she is so passionate about helping women in dentistry.
