Dr Eddie Goggins
BA, B. Dent. SC. (Hons) T.C.D.
I'm Eddie Goggins the founder and principal dentist of Dublin 18 Dental Rooms. I love dentistry and I am a perfectionist by nature. I always strive to be the best at everything that I do.
My vision has always been to create the best dental practice in Ireland but not just a place of clinical excellence, but a place which has a happy friendly culture. I love where I work because I have gathered a group of like-minded people that share my vision. We all believe in providing the best dental care possible while ensuring it is an enjoyable experience for our patients.
I opened my clinic in January 2000 and with every passing year it has improved and grown. I continuously invest in newest technologies available to ensure that we are up to date on providing a 5 star service.
I qualified with first class honours from Trinity College Dublin in 1991and began my career in the UK working in a general dental practice. When I returned from the UK to Ireland, I began working in the nearby area of Monkstown where I grew a large following of patients, some of which still attend my clinic here in Cabinteely today, over twenty years later!
I am committed to ongoing training and professional development, and have gained multiple qualifications in different fields of dentistry, such as a certification from the University of Warwick; four-year MSc Masters in Dental Implantology. I also have attended the Royal College of Surgeons in London for orthodontic training and I am a longstanding member of the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry. I have studied at the Bob Khanna Training Institute in facial rejuvenation, anti-wrinkle injections and non-surgical cosmetic procedures as well as several courses with Allergan. I continue to do courses every year, to further my professional development and provide the most up to date care for my patients.
I am member of the Irish society of digital restorative dentistry. It is a small group of clinicians in Ireland who offer digital CEREC restorations. These restorations are often known as "Crowns in a day" and are a very effective restorative option. We have an in-house lab within the clinic whereby using the Cerec Cad-Cam scanner, we can take a digital image of the mouth. Using this, we can then design and mill the crown from a block of ceramic within our own lab.
When I am not striving for perfection in the dental practice, I am striving for perfection in the sky. I am an avid aviator and have represented Ireland at the World Aerobatic Championships winning bronze. I will hopefully participate in the world championships this coming summer, 2019. When I am not flying I enjoy spending time with my family and drinking coffee.
