Mr O’Gorman’s retirement

After 30+ years of providing dental

After practicing dentistry for 35 years, Mr O’Gorman (AKA BOG) has decided to announce his retirement. He thanks all of his patients for putting their trust in him for all of these years. In return, we thank him for his years of providing dentistry with warmth, good humour and integrity and for being an all round legend!

Mr O’Gorman’s last day is on Friday 31 May. If you are one of his patients and you would like to bring your six monthly recall forward so that you can see him before he retires, please contact reception.  Otherwise, from 1st June, your care will pass over to Mr. Paul Geoghegan (pronounced Geygan!). Paul has worked at the practice for over 17 years and was mentored by BOG after he graduated from Newcastle University Dental School.  Many of you will already have met Paul over the years as he has regularly provided emergency cover for BOG.    

If you are a member of our dental care plan, you don’t need to take any action. Practice Plan Limited is aware of the changes and will ensure your dental care benefits continue without interruption.  Finally, good luck BOG & Jo, enjoy a well earned retirement, full of cycling adventures!
