Our Story

You won’t be mistaken if you’ve noticed that our partners Conor and Cormac Shields are indeed twin brothers, but the family connections to outstanding dental treatment also go back a long way.

Over a century ago, their grandfather Frank qualified in 1917 as one of the first dental surgeons in Tyrone. Passion for the profession continued in the family when his son began practicing in Dungannon. Inspired by the need to improve patient care and reduce common anxieties, Frank Jnr became a leading pioneer in sedation techniques. A reason why today, Shields Dental are for a long time, very experienced in this area – If you’re a nervous patient please click here for more information.

Moving to the present team, Conor and Cormac ran a private dental practice in London for 10 years but chose to establish Shields Dental & Orthodontic Clinic because of their deep local heritage. Now joined by a widely respected and experienced team, the third generation of Shields dental experience are here to welcome you and your family.

If you would like some more family history, the Shields have links to Abraham Lincoln, Charles Parnell and Éamon de Valera. Maybe one day they could share it with you.

At Shields Dental & Orthodontic Clinics , patients are treated by the third generation of a family of distinguished dentists. It’s a tradition of excellence we try to uphold with advanced technology, the latest techniques and materials and the same old human warmth.
