Dr Darren Cromey

Darren was born in Bangor, Co.Down, and went to School at Sullivan Upper School, Holywood. He then attended Glasgow University Dental School and Hospital, where he graduated in 1999. He worked in an NHS/private practice in Glasgow for 5 years before moving back to Ireland in 2004. 

On his return he worked in Dalkey, Harcourt Street and Ashbourne. Darren bought the Walkinstown Dental Practice in 2006 and redeveloped the practice to appear less intimidating and allow patients to have an altogether different dental experience.
"We pride ourselves on looking after nervous patients and those who haven't been to the dentist for a number of years - sometimes up to several decades !
I want to regain patients' confidence in dentistry."
Although Dr Cromey is not an orthodontist, he is interested in straightening teeth and more organic cosmetic dentistry. "My ethos is to bring out the best in patients teeth - put your best teeth forward! "Sometimes something as simple as reshaping a tooth can have a marked effect on a patients smile."
Dr Cromey has travelled to London, Chicago, Cleveland, Italy and Monte Carlo to provide patients with the most up to date techniques in cosmetic dentistry. Along with Six Month Braces, Invisalign and Inman Aligners we now also provide Lingual and Damon braces.
Away from the practice Darren is a keen golfer, plays 5-a-side in Tallaght, as well as enjoying tennis and squash. He lives in Terenure and has two children.
