Meet the Team.

Aoife Behan

Lead Nurse

I first found my love of dentistry when I started my work experience from college in The Dental practice in Roscrea in 2015. From there I graduated from Athlone Institute of Technology in 2017. After college, I joined the amazing dental team in Roscrea where I started working between Dental Nursing and the Dental Lab.

I took my skills and knowledge that I had gained and moved to Vancouver for 1 year, where I experienced working in different job roles, but eventually I landed back in the Dentistry field working and gaining experience while working with another amazing team. I had the opportunity to do new courses and learn new skills. When I returned home I was lucky to get a job back in Roscrea (with the people who thought me the most), but with some new lovely team members within Shields Dental.

I adore meeting new people from all ages and hearing their stories and helping to ease anxious patients. Overtime I have learned a lot about so many new treatment processes while assisting alongside general dentists and specialist dentists. My main interest about dentistry is patient behaviours and what causes anxiety in patients. My favourite treatments are Orthodontics and Periodontics.

Outside of work my hobbies are attending gigs or concerts, travelling, cooking food from different countries and any long car journey with good company.
