Meet the Team.

Aine Ryan

Lead Nurse

Aine, who is from Limerick, began working in Shields Dental and Implant Clinic in the June of 2019. Having had no previous dental experience, training in Shields was quite the adventure. She quickly realised that dental nursing was the career in which she was passionate about and hoped to expand her knowledge and skills by enrolling in the Dental Nursing programme. Fast forward two years, she is now finishing up her diploma in Dental Nursing from University College Cork and hopes to graduate next summer. Through her hard work, Aine obtained the position of Lead Nurse in the Castletroy Clinic in which she aims to provide and maintain the 5* service that the Shields team provides. Aine enjoys all aspects of dentistry but has a keen interest in Invisalign Treatment, as she likes to be involved in a patient’s ortho journey and watching their confidence grow during and after treatment.

Outside of work, Aine loves to spend time with her family and friends, shopping and following the GAA.
