Our Surgery

Dr. Mamoon Rashid

Dr. Mamoon Rashid graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Dental Science from University College Cork in 2004. He then went onto work in private practice in Donegal until moving to Galway in 2007. Since 2007 he has been providing a high level of care to his patients at Castlelawn Dental practice, providing a broad range of treatments such as cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, difficult extractions and dental prosthetics.

Dr. Rashid believes in the principle of ‘Minimally Invasive Dentistry’ which reflects how dentists can provide the highest level of service to the teeth with the least invasiveness & therefore preserving the patient’s existing teeth. In 2008 he made a conscious decision to place mercury free tooth coloured fillings in every treatment case.

Dr. Rashid has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry & implantology. He has a vast experience in providing veneers, crowns & bridges; carrying out everything from restoring a single tooth with a veneer to full smile rejuvenation using implants, crowns & bridgework. He is also a six month smile provider. Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialised clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.

Dr. Christopher de Souza

Dr Christopher de Souza, better known as Chris,  is a dental surgeon and a Galweigan himself. Dr Chris graduated with an Honours Batchelor of Dental Surgery Degree from University College Cork in 2016. He spent the past few years in private practice in Ireland and made the move home to Galway and joined the RDent team in July 2018.

Chris is a very caring, passionate and friendly dentist. In 2017 he was nominated by his patients for the ‘Sensodyne Dentist of the year’ award. At University Dr Chris won the BDS perpetual trophy award in behavioural science. This was for his recognition of dealing with those patients whom have a fear at the dentist. It’s safe to say his kind manner can put patients at ease for an enjoyable visit to the dentist!

Dr Chris is highly competent in a broad range of treatments including cosmetic work, difficult extractions, restoration of implants, dental prosthetics and root canals. Dr de Souza says “It’s all about treating the person and not just the mouth. With that, you can have a broad focus to treat a variety of issues with a high standard of clinical care”.

Dr Chris utilizes the most up to date techniques. He also engages with continuing professional development courses, which enhance his knowledge of procedures, materials and equipment which promotes good quality care. Chris’s view is to provide a high quality of patient care and to try his best to meet expectations.

 In his spare time Dr. Chris can be found spending time with his family,  keeping healthy at the gym and although he has never played for us we heard a rumour that he also can play guitar!
