Dr Paddy Crotty is a family dentist who has developed an expertise in general restorative dentistry with a particular skill in conservative and healthy ways of creating, transforming and reviving smiles without the need for cutting back the teeth. Over the years he has developed a loyal following of patients who appreciate his empathetic approach, commitment to quality and passion for teaching and learning new techniques.
Having graduated from Trinity College Dublin, Dr Crotty obtained a fellowship in restorative dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. He was later honoured with fellowships of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the International College of Dentists.
Dr Crotty has been a part time lecturer in Trinity College for many years and has lectured extensively on cosmetic dentistry and dental bonding in Ireland and the UK. Dr Crotty has attended many courses in Europe and the US where he has learned from world experts and opinion leaders in his areas of interest. The knowledge he has gained has helped develop his reputation as a well-informed practitioner and lecturer.
After post-graduate training, Dr Crotty established his practice beside the Mater Hospital on Upper Dorset Street in Dublin, continuing a dental tradition started in the 1940s by his father-in-law, the late Dr JB Moloney. He was joined by Dr Nuala Carney in 1998.
In 2010, Dr Crotty formed the Dorset Dental Clinic in a neighbouring building with specialist dentist (prosthodontist) Dr Colm Sugrue. In this modern clinic, Dr Crotty continues his commitment to his patients: to deliver an ethical, health-centred, patient-focused service which provides long-term value for money.
