One of our lovely team members, Petra, moved house recently and she kindly invited us over for a house warming last weekend.
She had everything laid out from grapes and cheese to chicken curry. The weather was really nice so we spent most of the evening out the back, where we enjoyed our jelly and ice-cream. Another fun filled Northern Cross Dental team night out!
Thanks for a lovely evening Petra
Our Orthodontist, Dr. Kieran Daly, was recently on a lingual course in Austria, where he met the team from Orthorobot. He was very impressed with the technique they used for taking their before, during and after patient photographs, that he invited them over to Northern Cross Dental for a demonstration.
We met Sylvia and the gang from Austria last Friday when they came to our practice and we spent the day learning how to take excellent patient photographs. It was actually a fun day and we all had a lovely lunch together.
Kieran spent the weekend showing the Austrian gang around Dublin. They had lovely weather for the whole weekend and on Saturday night, they enjoyed Riverdance in the Olympia. They had a great time in Dublin and gave our team lovely compliments about how well we all work together.
Our orthodontist, Dr. Kieran Daly, completed his first triathlon along with Dr. Ronan Perry in Sligo over the August bank holiday weekend.
“It was tough but very enjoyable”, says Kieran. He went on to say “The weather wasn’t great but the water was nice and warm, which helped and I was just glad to finish my first triathlon”.
He arrived to work after the bank holiday weekend looking very pleased with himself. It was a great achievement and accomplishment. Well done Kieran and Ronan.
Our orthodontist, Dr. Kieran Daly, attended an orthodontic course in the Lake District in the UK last weekend.
It was a 2 day course and to clear their heads and freshen them up, they were brought on a hike were all the orthodontists also enjoyed the fresh air and viewed some beautiful scenery.
There’s no better way to recharge your batteries!
The Northern Cross Dental team had an “non uniform” day on Thursday 14th June and Monday 18th June to show our support for the Irish soccer team and to get into the Euro 2012 spirit. We all wore something Irish or green and we had a great 2 days doing it.
There was an electric atmosphere in the practice all day and the patients were also getting into the spirit of things by having a chat about the tournament when they were making their next appointment.
Roll on the World Cup 2014
Our orthodontist, Dr. Kieran Daly, was invited to an Italian and French International Orthodontic Society Conference in Monaco last weekend to give a talk on the treatments that we provide in our clinic.
He had to prepare a powerpoint presentation and speak in front of other specialist orthodontists from all over Europe. It was a great achievement and a great experience to be chosen to represent Ireland in this conference.
