Dominic J Kavanagh Lead Technician
With 10+ years “at the bench” in a full service laboratory and an academic grounding in Dental Technology, Clinical Dental Technology and Health Sciences (the process of applying research to improving patient care outcomes) Dom established the laboratory with the aim of bringing these experiences to the fore with an aim of providing better results for those requiring denture care.
With professional membership and affiliation to a number of dental/prosthetist organisations, Dom is committed to using the services of the laboratory to further the knowledge and craft of dental technology through education with and for the dental team and patients locally.
