Dr Fay Callaghan

Dr Callaghan qualified as a dentist from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) in 2005. During the past 12 years of her career, she has worked in a number of different practices in the UK and Australia which has successfully developed her skills in many aspects of dentistry. Dr Callaghan emigrated to Australia in early 2015 with Permanent Residency and has now made Sydney her home.

Dr Callaghan enjoys all aspects of dentistry but has a special interest in restorative dentistry (especially crown and bridgework) and short term orthodontics including clear aligner therapy. She is also very passionate about paediatric dentistry, engaging with children very well and firmly believing in encouraging good dental habits from an early age in order to make visiting the dentist a fun and positive experience for our young patients. 

Dr Callaghan always strive to build a great rapport with my patients, taking time to explain treatments fully and discuss all options available. Her calm and friendly manner helps to quickly put patients at ease and she regularly has new patients request me following recommendations from their friends and family.
