Specialist centres to merge

Dental Care Ireland’s expansion continues with acquisition of periodontal practice

Dublin-based MK Perio is to merge with the Northumberland Institute of Dental Medicine (NIDM) after becoming the latest acquisition by Dental Care Ireland.

Dr Maher Kemmoona, owner of MK Perio, will join the specialist team at NIDM, operating from the clinic in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

Colm Davitt, chief executive of Dental Care Ireland, said: “The Northumberland Institute has been a leading light in specialist dental care and training in Ireland for over 30 years. The addition of MK Perio to the practice will further enhance its offering and expand our overall specialist team. It reflects Dental Care Ireland’s commitment to working with long-established, trusted and high-quality dental practices.”

Dr Anne O’Donoghue, founder and principal dental surgeon at NIDM, said: “Our vision at NIDM is to be a centre of excellence for Irish dentistry. Quality of service is paramount and our highly
qualified specialist team, coupled with the latest technology, is what sets us apart. Dr Kemmoona brings a wealth of experience to the practice and we look forward to welcoming him on board.”

Dr Kemmoona said: “The merger is an ideal opportunity to draw on the synergies between our two practices, and to consolidate our expertise. It is an exciting move and I look forward to working alongside Anne and the team to further develop NIDM as a specialist dental hub.”
