Our Story

Our practice was established in 2008, when Dr. Tony McLoughlin and Dr. Ronan Dunne decided to combine their many years of experience and genuine passion for dentistry to form Renmore Dental. Their aim was to create a friendly and comfortable environment, in which they would provide only the highest quality of dental care, and an exceptional patient experience. 

Since then, the practice has grown substantially- with a completely renovated, modern premises, and a highly skilled team of over twenty staff. Throughout our journey, our focus remains the same- to build caring, trusting relationships with our patients that last a lifetime.
