Niall Finlay BDS (Glasgow) MFDS RCSEd

Niall hails from Scotland bringing with him the warm Scottish hospitality and culinary delights. Completing his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at Glasgow University in 2009, he made the most of the unrivalled scenery, jaunty Scottish ceilidhs and Nessy spotting before moving down under in 2011.

Since emigrating to Melbourne, Niall has worked in private practice throughout the suburbs, as well as the city, before settling in a practice in the north west of Melbourne for five years. During this time he continued to expand and develop his knowledge and skills, sitting postgraduate examinations to earn an MFDS from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

Niall’s gentle and welcoming approach to patients encourages a relaxed and, dare we say it, almost enjoyable dental experience. And patients can leave knowing that they’ve had an honest, informative and friendly visit with the best dental care possible provided.

After all the teeth and paperwork are complete, Niall spends time getting away from it all. Whether he's on a golf course, or a push bike, or off camping.

Registered with AHPRA, an ADA member and a member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
