Meet the Dentist – Dr. Victoria Kelly0
Dr. Victoria Kelly, Cosmetic Dentist, Foyle Dental Spa
Foyle Dental Spa has recently attracted one of the most talented cosmetic dentists of her generation to a flourishing practice in Derry’s Queen Street. Born and reared in Coleraine, Victoria Kelly graduated in Dentistry from Glasgow University in 2005. Continuing her studies she was one of four postgraduate students to gain a place on the Northern Ireland General Professional Dental Training Scheme.
There she gained experience in general practice as well as in oral surgery and special needs dentistry. Victoria also served for a year as a Senior House Officer in the Oral and Maxillo-Facial unit of Altnagelvin Hospital. However, her main area of expertise is in the rapidly advancing field of cosmetic restorative dentistry – smile design, white fillings, teeth whitening and treatment under sedation for anxious patients.
Victoria is currently undertaking advanced training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry in Birmingham. She is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons and Faculty of Dental Surgery in Edinburgh. And she has also completed her sedation training with the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry.
As if that weren’t enough: she recently completed the Rathlin Run Challenge; raised £500 via a Macmillan Coffee Morning with her best friend; is a participant of her church’s charitable activities and a keen photographer; and ran the Dublin Marathon last month in a time of 4 hours and 3 minutes in aid of the Dialysis Unit at Belfast City Hospital. Is it any wonder she indulges the odd glass of Merlot!
Cosmetic dentistry is the fastest growing area of the dental profession. The very best smile makeovers can take ten years off your face and give you a whole new reason to see the funny side of life. Offered the choice of a fur coat or a dazzling smile for Christmas – most women wouldn’t have to think twice! So if your loved one is… makin’ his list – there’s no harm in leaving a few not so subtle hints lying around – starting with this feature under the remote control.
Foyle Dental Spa located at 16c Queen Street in the heart of Derry’s Georgian quarter, is a showcase of cutting edge dental technology. In the tranquil surroundings of this state-of-the-art spa you will feel totally relaxed before, during and after your dental treatment session. The plush surroundings have the feel of a boutique hotel, soothing music is piped into every suite and you can even tune into your favourite feel good movie or DVD while you’re in the chair.
The aroma of delicately scented candles hangs lightly in the air of this de-luxe sanctuary and the staff, from the receptionists to the dental nurses and dentists help create a unique experience. At Foyle Dental Spa you’ll actually look forward to your next visit to the dentist. Who’d have thought a visit to the dentist could be so relaxing?
