Dr. Morgan O’Gara BDS (NUI), MSc Aesthetic Dentistry (King’s College London)
Principal Dentist & Owner of O’Gara Dental.
Dr. Morgan O’Gara qualified from University College Cork in 2007 with an honours degree. After graduating, Morgan moved to London to work in general dental practice and to pursue further training and education to improve his skills in a wide range of areas.
Morgan spent five years in London working in both NHS and private dental practice. At the same time he completed, with merit, a three year postgraduate Masters in Aesthetic Dentistry in the world renowned King’s College London. Morgan was one of the first dentists internationally to complete this programme, under the tutelage of some of the most renowned cosmetic dentists in the world.
In 2012, Morgan moved to Perth, Australia where he spent four years working in a fully private dental practice with a focus on cosmetic dentistry. During this time Morgan developed a particular interest in smile makeovers. This involves simple and complex aesthetic smile enhancements including tooth whitening, composite resin work, ceramic veneers and restorations, and restoring implants.
In March 2016, Morgan along with his wife, Daphne, and their two young children, returned home to Ireland to set up O’Gara Dental. In his spare time Morgan is a big Munster and Ireland rugby fan. Born in Cork, to his parents Joan and Fergal, Morgan along with his brothers Colin, Ronan, and Fergal began playing rugby at a young age, and Morgan himself went on to play to the highest amateur level in Ireland. In recent years he has become a regular competitor in triathlon, having completed one full ironman and eight half-ironman events.
