Dr Nidhi Krishnamoorthy

Dr Eiméar Short

Bachelor of Dental Surgery (Honours) from the University of Dundee in 2018.
Associate dentist at a busy practice outside of Glasgow, Scotland.
Emergency dentist for the Out Of Hours Hospital service for NHS Forth Valley health board.

I have substantial experience in treating anxious patients as I work in an area of Scotland where a lot of people suffer from dental phobia, and one of my favourite parts of my job is helping patients overcome their anxieties.

I am confident in dental extractions, having spent 3 weeks in Malawi with an amazing charity called Smileawi. We visited rural communities which did not have ready access to dental care and alongside 10 other dentists, we extracted almost 3000 teeth. It was an incredibly challenging yet rewarding experience, and it gave me a lot more confidence when faced with a difficult extraction back in general practice!

I also have a special interest in restorative dentistry and I have undergone training in cosmetic alignment systems and in composite bonding techniques in order to offer my patients a wider range of dental care so that they can attain their dream smiles.

I grew up in a small town and I absolutely loved my family dentist – she was kind and caring, and she adored her job. At school, I discovered that I had an affinity for science and that coupled with my empathetic nature steered me towards healthcare. I did some work experience back with my family dentist and I was completely sold! I loved seeing the trust the patients had in their dentist and I loved the variety of work that was being carried out day to day.

Although I love the feeling of completing a difficult extraction or finishing up a tricky root canal treatment, my favourite part of my job is seeing my patients smile again. I have an affinity for treating anxious patients, and the most rewarding part of my job is seeing a patient’s pride in themselves when they have finished a course of treatment. I also love working as part of a team, and the camaraderie and companionship that comes with it.

I am passionate about equal accessibility to dental care and making sure all of my patients feel listened to and taken care of. I believe strongly in ethical dentistry and putting my patient’s safety first.

I am an active member of the British Dental Association as well as the College of General Dentistry.

I’m from a small rural town in Ireland, and we have plenty of beautiful scenery right at our doorstep which I have grown up exploring. I have also lived for several years in Scotland and so I have done my fair share of hill climbing! I love being outdoors and I’m excited to explore the new landscapes of the Gold Coast – a far cry from the hills and fields of Ireland, but just as beautiful. I love swimming and water sports, and I am excited to try my hand at surfing to really immerse myself in the Aussie lifestyle!
